Raise the Bar...and some CANDY!!!!

(My blog posts are normally short and sweet....but you may wanna grab a beverage for this one.)

This week just flew by....do you agree??
I've been super busy at work, so I think that contributes to it.
Today is a fantastic challenge at Raise the Bar
that you'll surely want to play along with....

"oh to be a child again"
make a card with an image of a child on it.
Have fun with this one!

my card was made with an image from the fundraiser
digi pack I got from Jak Heath
it is a pack of digi images with profits going
to Katie Renz who was recently diagnosed with
Stage 4 gastric cancer!
Katie is blogging about her experience with cancer
and all about her treatments...head over and offer some support.

You'll want to also see what the RTB Design Team
has done with thir "child" images:

Anita - Thanh - Dana - Joni

Here is my card -





Card details:
Stamps: Image from Help for Katie from  by Lori Designs, PTI b/g text style
Paper: Basic Gray, cryogen white, DCWV dp
Ink: Vintage snow, basic gray
Misc: Nesties, button, twine, copics


NOW....to talk about the candy!
 
I've acquired more followers on my blog than I ever thought possible!
I'm truly humbled at each and every comment that is left on my blog,
and to show my sincere appreciation....I'm offering up a $15 gift certificate to the online
store of your choice.  As long as I can buy a gift certificate and have it emailed
to you....you get to choose where to shop!
 
I have a couple "rules" you need to follow....

1.  Become a follower of my blog
 (I don't normally do this, but what the heck)

2.  Leave me a comment and tell me what your
favorite designer paper is right now!
 
3. If you put a post on your blog and send people
back here...you get a 2nd entry into the drawing....
just let me know in your comment that you did this.
 
Thats it...easy peasy!!! 

GOOD LUCK TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!!!
 
I'll post the winner on my blog sometime on January 19th.

Dont think this is considered a designer paper but I am loving the Kraft paper it is so easy to work with and any color accommodates it
