Have a Cup of Cheer!



Happy Friday Eve my friends!  It's my birthday today...in addition to sharing my card, I thought I'd have a little giveaway. It's been way to long since I've had one!  So...I have a few things in my stash that I'll pop in the mail to you along with a $20 gift certificate to one of the following:  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps; Verve or Simon Says Stamps.  Any of those three would be super fun!   Pop me a note and let me know what you are most thankful for right now and I'll do a random drawing some time next week.  How's that for sharing a little birthday cheer?!

My card today is inspired by the CASology challenge. When I saw the cue word, I immediately thought coffee or tea.  Both of them are brown!  A super CAS card for CASology using some fun new Verve stamps.

  1. Happy Birthday, Lynn! I hope you have a fabulous day!

    I am most thankful for my family right now. My girls are struggling through the end of school year chaos, and feeling overwhelmed, but a hug from Mummy still fixes everything! :-)

  10. Happy Happy Birthday, dear Lynn!

    May you always have
    Walls for the winds,
    A roof for the rain,
    Tea beside the fire,
    Laughter to cheer you,
    Those you love near you,
    And all your heart might desire.

    Have a wonderful birthday and a year filled with all good things!

  29. How super sweet of you! Happy (belated) birthday! You should be the one receiving the birthday cheer. :) I've loved reading all the wonderful things your blogging friends have written about you on their blogs. I am so thankful to be a mother....I received some of the best squeezes (hugs) today from my toddler that made me poignantly aware of how very blessed I am.

  30. Hope you had a great birthday, Lynn! Your brightly colored "cups" of cheer really fit the bill for a cue of brown. Very clever. Not only am I very thankful for my dear husband, but I am SO thankful for good health. Right now I've been worrying so about my BIL who is very, very sick with no confirmed diagnosis of what's wrong. Thankful they say no cancer but now being tested for Lyme Disease. We need answers soon! That's so sweet of you to have a giveaway in honor of your birthday and appreciate the chance to win.
