I'm Celebrating and Starting Challenges

This is a two-part post.

First Part
Here is a card of celebration.  You ask what I am celebrating?  Well, it is my birthday today so I created a birthday celebration card.  You will notice that it is not your typical birthday card.  It has no candles.  If I put candles on a card, I would have to make a 12x12 card in order to get them all on!

Second Part
Since it is my birthday and I have been blogging for just a little over a year, I have seen the importance of hosting challenges.  The sites I visit all the time hosts challenges.  A few of t hem offer prizes for the best or for the random number picked.

Now I think I am ready to start hosting challenges.  Even though I don't have a sponsor at this time so I can offer prizes, but I can spotlight the winner's work.  Therefore, starting today, I am going to host challenges.  The winner will be chosen at ramdom and spotlighted on my blog for a week.  Right now I will start each challenge every two weeks.  They will begin on Mondays and end on Sundays at 12 Midnight CST.

The Stamp Pad Challenge
(It must have one stamped image)
Theme

A Woman (or women)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today. You had asked if the paper that I made the fishtail flower from was white cardstock. It certainly was. Good Eye.

    See you soon
