How Old Are You Now? Lucky Winner!

January 16th was my husband's birthday, but because we had just returned from the Craft and Hobby show in LA, I really only had time to make a quickie card.  Luckily for me, I was able to purchase this Art Impressions stamp at the end of the show.  I simply colored the image with Copic pens and added the words onto the apron.  The card is very fitting for my husband because we are only a month apart in age, and yet I delight rubbing in the fact that he IS older than me.  I think the expression on the old lady's face says it all. Inside the card I  put speech bubbles that said, "Make a wish!" and " Too bad, I'm still here!" LOL!

Oh yes, at the CHA show I was given an Art Impression's button to wear.  On the button was a number. The trick was to find your matching number partner before the end of the show.  At the very end of the show I found my partner (at the AI booth of course)! We both won bags of stamps...woot! woot!  Since I won big, I thought it was time to pick a winner from the sweet comments in the month of December.  Announcing the December winner of a $25 Ben Franklin Crafts gift card..........KAREN INOUYE, the clever and talented blogger of Have a Scrap Happy Day! Congrats Karen, I'll be contacting you soon.

 If you would like to win in the future, just leave a comment to any of my posts and you will be entered.  I pick a name whenever the mood strikes me and your name will be entered as many times as you leave a comment for that month.  I'll be back to post some pics I took at the CHA show.  Time to unpack and do some laundry.
