Hey It's a Party!!!

Today... it's a big ole Happy Birthday to Sharon Johnson and the Stamp Simply challenges!!! Today, is challenge number 100 for Sharon and she wants us all to... do a little dance, sing a little song, get down tonite (or today as the case may be)!




In honor of the day, it's a party and you are ALL invited to come in for some fun and prizes. Party time means prizes doesn't it?? Well I'm definitely lovin' today and I know you will too. I am showing some Christmas gift tags that I conjured up for today's party.








This tag is made with cotton scraps from Crafty Secrets and to give it a little pazazz I placed it on my Nesties curved rectangle , matted with both green and gold cardstock and added some glitter to the holly berries. Finished it off with a green satin ribbon from Mike's place and put a little glitzy stud with a red rhinestone. Gotta have bling or is that you gotta have heart? The back is below. I made the back using the Rejoice set from Flourishes. Bet you thought I would leave the back side up to you eh? Well that would be arse backwards and I didn't want to be a ...oh figure it out for your self kind of gal, so I did it for you. Sweet ! Well keep looking 'cause below is tag #2 and then you'll see my big birthday party surprise for one of you lucky ladies or gentlemen. Gosh I love this party already!! This is a sweet Mr. Snowman (must be a papa cause you can see his little boy...so sweet!) which is another of the Crafty Secrets for Christmas time. Used my Nesties again with one of the labels #3, I love this cut and also used the snowflake one that Spellbinder's put out but since that just wasn't enough I added some of SU's white snowflakes to make sure I got really full and fluffy snowflakes. Added some little stick on flakes and some bling....Essential stuff!





So now it's time for my big surprise in celebration of this 100th. challenge...Can you sing Happy Birthday dear Sharon and her wonderful challenges??? Well my present is...are you excited and just ready to wet your panties with expectation??? My present to one of you is $ Ka-ching!!! A $25 gift certificate to Sharon's Stamp Simply store for you to buy some wonderful May Art's ribbon or whatever you decide to spend this money on. Sharon will be waiting for me to tell her which of you is my winner and then you can head on over to spend the dough. It will include the shipping fee so remember that when you are spending, include your shipping and go up to $25. Sharon already is in possession of the money so go spend it dear winner. I will make my drawing on Mon.August 17th.after 9 p.m. and post the winner on Tuesday August 18th a.m. Just leave a comment and you're in the running to be a winner! Good luck to you all!
