Time For A Giveaway!

Hello My Friends,

I am posting at an unusual time for me but I have two exciting announcements to make.

The first announcement...It is Louie's Birthday this coming Friday!  Can you believe our sweet Lou will be eight years old?  What an exciting life he has had.  He has been from Florida to Maine, been on the cover of a magazine (thanks Deb) he has been made into several digital stamps (thanks Heather) and he goes for boat rides & fishing all the time.  I really have come to believe that he is an angel walking around on this earth in a doggie suit.  He has brought our family so much joy!  If you go up and click on the button that says "Lou" you can read all about him.

Announcement number two...I have been turned into a digital stamp!  Whooo Hooo!  My friend BeeBee Kates made this stamp.

Here is the card I made with it and the picture she used...I think she shaved some pounds off of me thanks BeeBee.



If you would like this stamp, you can get it HERE She named it "Craft Queen" I just love that. Here is the picture she used.  I know this probably sounds so conceited, but I just love the idea of my digital likeness being posted on a bunch of blogs!  Just the thought of it makes me so happy!  And I know some of you gals can do a much better job coloring it than I did!  Or try doing something else with it, turn it into some kind of mixed media!  Oh that would be so cool!



Here is a close-up of the digital stamp.



Okay, I know, I know, you are all saying shut up Chriss and get to the giveaway!  Well, to celebrate Louie's birthday, I am giving away this really cute Max & Whiskers Greeting Card Kit. It says you can make 8 greeting cards with it, and some Max & Whiskers Epoxy Stickers and some cute buttons that came free with my purchase.

  23. HI Chriss - Happy Birthday Louis.Congratulations on the Stamp likeness as well - it really does look like you! So Sweet!

    I have your blog candy on my blog Chriss at the top in one of my pages because right now my blogger is messed up - I see blogger is TRYING to FIX these issues so I can get my gadget to work - I lost my badge information and I cannot upload that either - so I have page dedicated to your blog candy and directing people here - of course, I wish to win as I love Basic Grey supplies! Enjoy your day! Gail
