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.
