My Birthday Giveaway!

It's my birthday, so let's have a giveaway!

Yes, my birthday. Not something I like to talk about normally, but today, since I am giving something away to celebrate it, I don't mind so much!

A little about the card:
The card uses the Angelina Fiber Under Glass Technique - one of the Bonus Techniques on the new CD (7th Edition) from the Technique Junkie Newsletter. In addition, I used a variation of the Gel and Acetate Technique (August 2004 edition) to color my image. The stamps are from Sweet Pea Stamps (more about Sweet Pea below). It is gorgeous in person! It has dimension AND shimmer. If you notice, I did not over-embellish this card, because I used Paper Temptress's Laser Lustre Paper in the background -- believe me, it is so beautiful I didn't need anything else!

Now to the giveaway...

This week I am thrilled to bring a new-to-TJ giveaway sponsor! Today's giveaway is from Sweet Pea Stamps, with this wonderful set of Birthday and Thank You stamps:

To celebrate their debut with us, Sweet Pea Stamps is offering a free mini grab bag of stamps with every purchase. There is also a sale going on right now -- through the end of the week -- and free shipping to the US and Canada. Just make sure to write "TJ Order" In the comments with your order to receive the free stamps.

I have to tell you that I personally just "discovered" Sweet Pea Stamps. I saw Lynette post on some images on another egroup, followed the link, and fell in love! Well it seems that Lynette has been in the stamping world since 1999, took some time off, and opened Sweet Pea Stamps in April. There are some really cool stamps on the Sweet Pea site -- from the "Gum Drop Gang" to the "Sweet Pea Pals" to the elegant stamps above. I love "finding" new providers for my "fix"!

So how do you become the lucky winner of this giveaway? To win this card and the gift certificate, simply leave a comment by Monday, October 12th at 9am est. The winner will be selected on Monday morning. Make sure that you leave enough information so that I can contact you to let you know you won. Just a reminder that Blogger does NOT leave me your email address. A great way to do this is to leave your email address in a spelled-out way, such as "p huntoon at optonline dot net." I will use my handy random number generator to pick the winning entry. You do NOT need to be a TJ subscriber to win. Good Luck!

The winner of this set is Barbara Washington. Congrats, Barbara!
