Hope everyone is having a great day so far. Today has been pretty special for me, since it's my birthday. I took the day off from work and was able to sleep in late for a change. I hung out with some friends last night to celebrate and tonight i'm going out to dinner with my family. Other than that, I don't have any big plans. But i'll probably end up doing something else over the weekend. I don't have to go back to work until next Wednesday, so i'm veryyy excited about having few days off! :)
Anyways, my card for today is one that I made up "just for fun". No specific challenge or theme. I just really like this Tall Flower stamp from Hero Arts, and I wanted to do some more practice with my Copic coloring. I stamped the image twice and then used dimensionals to pop up the flowers. Hope you guys enjoy this card and hopefully gain some inspiration from it.
Ok, well on to another note.... I recently won a giveaway contest a couple of weeks ago from Hero Arts and they sent me a package full of some fun stamps! I was so excited when I got the package. It was as if Hero Arts took a peek at my wishlist, because they sent me some images that I was already planning on getting. They are so awesome and generous for doing all of their giveaways for their fans. THANKS Hero Arts!
Well, the reason for explaining all this is because one of the stamps that I received is actually one that I already had in my collection. So now I have a duplicate of this Artists Butterfly image below:
Basically, I don't want the image to go to waste and I'd love for it to have a good home with someone who loves it as much as I do! :) So in order to keep the generousity going, i'm going to pass it on to one lucky reader who leaves me a comment on this post.
No need to answer any questions and you are not required to start following me... (unless you want to, of course). :) .... So just a simple comment about anything will do. You have up until Tuesday, July 6th to enter, and then I will choose a random winner after that.
***UPDATE: Giveaway has already ended for this post. Thank you to all who entered! :)***
In addition to the stamp, i'm also going to give away two other small items. I recently went to a stampshow and came back with lots of goodies that I had bought there. This is a bit embarassing to admit, but I actually ended up coming home with two items that I had already purchased before, and I forgot that I had them. (I know... I'm pretty bad, huh?).... So i'm also going to send the following two items below, to whoever wins the stamp.
Oh, and if you'd like some inspiration for this stamp, here is a card that I made with it a while back. You can find the post for it here, or just click on the thmbnail pic below.
Ok, well that's it for now. l'm off to go get ready for dinner. Hope you all have a fabulous evening! Thanks for stopping by! :)
