EBTKS Baby Card and a giveaway!

Hello all!  Happy Monday!  Is today the worst day of the week for you?  Currently with being an stay at home mommy it's not so bad, I usually take it as a relaxing day.  A cleaning up after the weekend day also!  Today I have a giveaway but first a card!  

On Saturday I bought some doilies and than on Sunday I saw the challenge at Everything But the Kitchen Sink challenge and thought to myself that may work!  I decided to make a baby card as many friends are pregnant right now.  A few with baby #3 and one even with baby #4!  I love babies so this is quite exciting for me!  And it even gets me in the mood for another baby, but sadly probably not.  I don't have the easiest pregnancies (unexplainable seizures in both!) so no more babies for me.  But that's okay as I love the two that I have.  And really it's always more fun to love on other people's babies and hand them back when it's time, no middle of the night nursing! Here is the sketch: 


And here is my card:


I made a baby girl card, because someone is bound to have a girl, hopefully!  I sponged two different pink inks on the edge of the doily.  And used butterflies from Hero Arts Antique Engravings. I love the soft feel of this card, perfect for a baby!

On Wednesday August 16 it will be my Blogaversary!  Yay I can't believe it's been a year already!  I am so thankful and blessed by all of you who follow my blog and make comments on my posts.  I appreciate you all so much since you add so much to my life.  It's so kind and uplifting to read the kind comments you make on my cards!  You make me feel so talented!  Like a lot of others I started to put together some blog candy to thank you!  I was collecting things to make one than I thought to myself why not give one thing away for 5 days?  If you know me I like to do things differently!  I thought it would be more fun, and nice to give things away to 5 people instead of just one person.  It won't be as big for the winners but it's always nice to win something!  Than I decided for today prize the first one I would draw from this past week's comments made on my blog. That way I could thank you for all the sweet wonderful comments you have made on my blog.  I won't do it this way for the other giveaways, thought it would be fitting for the first.  I had no clue how to do that on random.org for so many posts,  so I did it the old fashion way.  I wrote down all your names from this past week and put them in Carter's hat (he never wears it may as well get some use for it) and had Ariel draw a name!  Here is a picture of that:

 Yay the wonderful Alice  I would be happy for whoever won since you are all so kind, but we can all agree that Alice is wonderful and so talented!  Here is what you have won:  Please flickr mail me your address and I will send it out!



I can't wait for tomorrow!  It's so fun to give things away!
