{ happy birthday, blog }

Happy 1st Birthday to my blog!

Wow, it's hard to believe it's been a whole year since I started this blog! I never thought I would be a blogger, but I must say it's been lots of fun!

To celebrate I would like to hold a card contest! Here are the details:

1) Create a new, unique card (no copying someone else's card design please) specifically for this contest using the colors shown in my card to the left. (Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Close to cocoa, Very Vanilla or you can use similar non-SU colors). No Halloween cards please.

2) Email your card to me only at this email address: along with your snail mail address so I know where to mail the prize if you win. (You do not have to send me the actual card by snail mail)

3) Deadline for submissions is September 29 at 9:00 am.

4) Judging will be done by a panel of creative people.

5) All cards will be posted on my blog and the winner will be announced on October 1.

6) A generous surprise package of creative goodies will be mailed to the winner after October 1.

I hope I haven't forgotten anything! If you have questions about the contest please leave a comment here.

All types of handmade cards are welcomed. You do not have to strictly use rubber stamps.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
