All you have to do is leave a comment each day and then on the 9th I will pick a winner.
It is that easy!
So with that said...
On with the show!
This card is using Calypso Coral, So Saffron and Very Vanilla CS. I stamped the Ferris Wheel in Early Espresso and then stamped again on white copy paper. I cut the Ferris Wheel out and used it as a mask. I then stamped the tents in Peekaboo Peach. "I love when your Birthday comes around" is stamped in Bermuda Bay. I then used the coordinating thinlits from the  Up & Away dies (# 142748) to cut out the clouds and placed 3 in each corner of the card. I then punched out 6-1" circles and colored each one and placed behind each cloud.
On the inside of the card I stamped "because Spoiling You is so much fun" in calypso coral and Bermuda bay and added the calypso coral ribbon down the side.
Finally I created lights by Chibitronics so my Ferris Wheel would light up!
Isn't that so cool!!!


  1. Hi Donna. I'm just a little confused. Are you picking a winner on the 9th or the 25th?

  2. It is the 9th, I felt 3 weeks might be to long for people so I changed it to the 9th. Sorry for the confusion.


Thank you for your comments, I enjoy reading them:)
