My belated birthday giveaway!


This was my birthday cake, eleven days ago. My daughter and her boyfriend surprised me with this yummy cake from Patisserie la Palme D'or. One candle. That's all I wanted.


Here are my flowers. My other daughter and son-in-law sent these to me and I loved that they weren't tall and showy. They know that orange is my favorite color. So pretty.

And here, finally, are my birthday giveaways for you, my dear followers. I decided to divvy up some candy and offer three sets so more people could win. This will all be random draws for random sets. Here they are:



The first has a Halloween theme. This set includes:

  One 6x6 pack of S.E.I. "Spooks" paper
  One set "Monster Squad" clear stamps by My Favorite Things
  One pack of Mini Shimmer Alpha stickers
  One tube of green glitter
  One pack of 1/4" black Zapdots dimensional adhesive
  One skein Mandarin twine
  One skein Charcoal twine


The next set has a Christmas theme. It includes:

  One 8x8" pack of October Afternoon "Good Cheer" paper
  One "Magical Background" stamp by Hero Arts
  One Martha Stewart "icicles" border punch
  One package of red Kaiser Craft pearls
  One skein Peapod twine



Remember the set of Stitchery stamps I knew I had but couldn't find? Well, I found them! They're part of the third set here, which includes:

  One 6x6" pack Lost & Found - Market Street papers by My Mind's Eye
  One pack of Dainty Dots brads by Sassafras
  One Martha Stewart 3-in-1 hydrangea punch
  One set of pink Kaiser Craft pearls
  One Distress Stickles in Mustard Seed







For a chance to win a random set, simply become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment. Any comment. Want to guess how old I am? (Be kind...) Any comment will do!

You have until Sunday, August 21st at midnight HST to leave a comment on this post. See the clock on my sidebar if you're not sure of the times. I'll draw the names and announce the winners on Tuesday, August 23rd, and I'll ship internationally, too!

Thanks so much for helping me celebrate my birthday, and for your timely visits to my blog. Good luck!
