My Birthday Means Blog Candy

My birthday is fast approaching - only a week away.  And I want you to celebrate with me so I am giving one of you a present.
I have offered blog candy several times before but always in an OWH blog hop.   I never insisted that you become a follower in order to enter the drawing.  But this time, I want to thank you for being followers and therefore this birthday candy is only for one of my followers.  Of course the reasons I have a blog is to share some of my card ideas with you (as well as enter challenges because I am addicted to them) so I do hope my blog has been inspirational to some of you.
If you are new to this blog, I would love to have you follow too. Just click one of the follow buttons then you can enter for this candy too.

So here is what the candy looks like:
Creative Memories Thank You album
Inkadinkadoo Sweet Dreams stamp set
Set of Cuttlebug folders
Set of Cuttlebug dies
Adhesive foam dots
Foam Stamps
Liquid Pearls - white opal

So if you would like to be in this drawing, here are the things you must do:
1.  Be or become a follower
2.  Wish me a happy birthday on this post (after all, it is for my birthday!)
3.  Guess how old I will be on this birthday.  I'll throw in an extra goodie if your name is drawn and you guessed right.  My profile pic is a few years old so here is a photo of me and my new grandson on July 7. 

My birthday is Aug 16.  You can post a comment (only one per person, please) between now and Aug. 16 midnight PDT.
I will randomly draw a winning name Aug 17.

Again, thank you for following.

Now on to a card:

I had fun using the Unity sketch last week so I made another card with that same sketch.
This Unity stamp is from the set - Your Friendship, My Cup of Tea
I used Tombow and Stampin Up markers to color the stamp, then after "huffing", stamped onto white cardstock.  Some paper piercing, some twine, and a fun card in very little time.

Unity - sketch
Created With Love - anything
Your Next Stamp - color inspiration

  2. Hi Marsha...I hope you have a FABULOUS birthday! I have been a follower of your blog since the OWH blog hop! I have no idea how old you are, but since your profile says you have 11 grandchildren and you look like you are around the same age as my mom, I'll guess 60.

Have a super Birthday next week, we all say 21 years old then double it plus!!! Well I do anyway!
