Happy Birthday to Me! & Blog Candy Winner

Today is my birthday! I scheduled my new catalog open house for my birthday because I thought it would be lots of fun to have people over and stamp on my birthday. What better way to celebrate, right? Then this morning, I realized that meant I had to clean the house on my birthday. What was I thinking!? (wink!) My hubby took the day off to help with the kids and we got everything cleaned up and set up in time. Now I can kick back and relax in the clean family room. Too bad only half the house get cleaned. Next time I'll have to plan a whole-house open house so I have a reason to clean the rest of it! Do you clean like that too? I need an excuse (company coming over) to get it all done. Otherwise it just gets the quick job!

Anyway, enough about cleaning!! I've got two cards to share today. They are slightly different versions of the same card. I think I have a crush on Concord Crush! I love it a lot more than I thought I would!

The first card is the standard size: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and the second card is 3-1/2" x 5-1/2". Leave me a comment and let me know which card you like best.

Finally, it's time to pick a winner for the 400K Blog Candy I posted last week. I used to generate a number and the lucky winner is

I prefer the first one. The patterned paper seems to pop more. It's beautiful

Happy Birthday Julie!! Love these cards - but prefer the pink one. I too thought concord crush was my least favorite IC, but I've completely run out of the cardstock.
