A Give Away and some birthday cards!

I've been watching my followers number slowly creep closer and closer to 200. Right before my birthday I decided I would pay it forward and do a little giveaway once the number reached 200.  AND right before my birthday it happened. Wow! I can't believe it and am so grateful for all my followers and readers and even if you aren't a follower, I still appreciate you stopping by. Thanks for all your comments and kind words day after day!
My birthday week was crazy busy, followed by me getting a nasty COLD-yuck and then this week it has been beautiful outside, so we've been getting lots of fresh air. Feels GREAT!!! It's been fun to watch the boys re-discover the swing set out back.  I love Spring (even if it's not officially here, yet).

So what does this have to do with my give away???  Everything. Lucky for you and for me, I was contacted by CSN Stores to give one lucky commenter from this blog post a $50 gift certificate to spend in any of their stores. Not familiar with their stores??? Check it out, they sell pretty much everything from Swing Sets, to shoes, to coffee makers and even the kitchen sink! HA! There are over 200 stores to shop from.

It's easy to enter.

Good Luck! I'll be posting the random winner sometime later in the day on Monday.

I do have two quick birthday cards to share. The first is R's birthday card. I used the sweet little froggie from Rainy Day Friends and the sentiment is from Loveosaurus. The fun papers are Jillibean, Monster Soup.

I also squeezed in this week's WSC sketch....finally!
This card is for my dad's birthday. He loves to fish, so I thought he might like this Something's Fishy à la mode.
 I added some of the cute waves from the catch a wave die-namic. I didn't have this punny sentiment by MFT (I think I do own it from 3 different stamp's a popular one. lol!) so I made my own. I used the Birthday from More Essential Sentiments and then added "fishes" with the Banner Day alphabet. Turned out cute,huh?!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! See you back here on Monday.
