Birthday Card Share and Giveaway Info.

Hello everyone!  It has been a busy week with brian away most of the week, and it was my first time having two kids all by myself, so needless to say I didn't get much crafting done this week... but I do have a quick post of a birthday card I just made for my Dad's Birthday...

I used the Create a Critter Cartridge for the Alligator, my white gel pen for some "stiched on" clouds and on the alligator's back and tummy. I really tried a lot of new things for the first time with this card...  I used bakers twine for the first time, my new embossing folder with the circles on it ( sorry specific name is escaping my mind right now! ), and I used swirl stamps up by the sentiment.  The sentiment comes from MPS, and of course there are stickles on the Aligator and the clouds behind it.  The inside just said " To one Gator-ific Grandpa".

Now in other news there is an awesome giveaway going on at Crafting With Cristina that you just have to go check out, you'll be happy you did!  Have a great night!
Happy Crafting!
