And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sister Kaye!! Yes, I know you will always be younger (and probably skinnier!), but I will always be older and wiser. :)
Welcome back to another Challenge Monday! I hope you enjoyed the Stampin' Addicts blog hop I participated in this weekend. If you missed it, click on the "Blog Hop" button in the Categories section of my sidebar. I'm already looking forward to the next SA blog hop!! I'm sure we will do another one when the new Stampin' Up! mini catalog comes out May 1st.
For today's challenge cards, I added an extra "personal" challenge. Shelli Gardner, the cofounder and CEO of Stampin' Up!, always has a monthly challenge on her blog. This month she challenged everyone to use products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. So that's what I did!! Each card contains at least one stamp set that you can get free by placing a $50 order with your Stampin' Up! demonstrator. And now... on to the cards!!
