Just Kidding

You know, for a crafter who doesn't feel comfortable with a purple color palette, I am creating an awful lot of cards these days using same color. I think it's because I have a monster by its tail-meaning I am trying hard to clean out my stash of papers, and I just happen to file my leftovers by color. I pulled a piece of purple out a week ago and it's still on my desk.
Anyway, today is Wednesday, April 8, and we are halfway into my Birthday Blowout celebration. It's time I called some winners!
First of all, everyone who wishes me a Happy Birthday on my initial party post (HERE) will receive the awesome digi image from Ike's Art that she made for my celebration. I m leaving that post open to newcomers to add their wishes before the end of the party, April 15.
And of course, every Follower will receive the lovely Birthday Balloon Paper from Decosse's Dyanmite Doodles.
The winner of the 100 FOLLOWER goodie bag prize is:  Linda Weber!! The Random.org snapshot of the pull is on the poSt HERE.

Congrats to you, and thank you all for your support!! More prizes to follow. I have a closet full! LOL
My card today features a sweet sexy image from Bugaboo called Sassy Birthday 2, colored with my trusty Copics. I added a few handmade flowers to coordinate with the flower patterns in my papers. I printed up the sentiment and punched it out, and placed the second half of it on the inside.

Challenges I am Entering:
Bugaboo - April Anything Goes
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - J is for Just Kidding
Creative Card Crew - Handmade Flowers
Fan-tastic Tuesday challenges - AG w/Twist: Die or Punch
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

I can't believe you're halfway through the bash already!

Wonderful card yet again. Personally I love the colour purple though I don't use it all that often.

Congrats to Linda for winning the goodie bag.

Hi Pat, I guess you are wondering why I am commenting on all your posts today. My life has been so crazy lately. There are days I feel I don't have time to sleep. I am hoping if I get caught up with commenting I can stay that way, but life does not always let us do as we want.
I was admiring the pretty purple and yellow you used on your card. I am so surprised you don't like purple. I don't like orange or black, but I find I use them quite often. Maybe you need to use purple more often as your card is fabulous. Edwina Brown
