Double the fun Birthday Bash Day 8


Welcome to Day 8 of the Technique Junkie Newsletter Birthday Bash! Today is "double day". Double - because not only is it TJ's birthday, but it's mine, too!

So...our artwork is a Double Slider (from the 3D and Fun Folds CD). And yes, it IS a birthday card; but it is a birthday card for all of us!

Today's giveaway is a gift for YOU. It's winner's choice today! One lucky winner can choose any Technique Junkie CD, renewal for a year, or a year's subscription. Your choice!

To enter today's giveaway, leave a comment and your email address on this blog post. I will use the random number generator on October 9th to select one lucky winner -- who gets to pick their own prize. Good luck!

All stamps and paper on the Double Slider are from Stampin' Up!

The winner of this Giveaway is Rachelle Emigh -- Congrats, Rachelle!

Whoa, Pat! Happy Birthday! And what a great prize -- if I'm chosen, I would have to take this 3D CD of course! They all look so great -- I agree with the stamper who said she needed to quit her job, stay home and make each sample!
