Another reason it's a great Monday is because unbeknownst to all of you, yesterday when I posted about the Craft Gossip Fork and Talk event I went to on Saturday, I decided to give the first person to comment on my blog something from my goodie bag. Tammy Hair was the lucky one to comment first, so I reached my hand into my bag and pulled out this fabulous prize
It's an American Girl Sew & Stuff Raccoon kit. You make one for yourself and one for your American Girl doll! How cute is that? I think any girl would love it even if they weren't into American Girl. The kit is geared toward young adolescent girls so it would make a nice gift to a girl to introduce them to a craft, or you could make it yourself and give it as a gift! I will be doing more of these giveaways, but they'll always be a surprise - so comment whenever you visit because you never know what you might win! I have a lot of stuff to share with you - so spread the word!
I do have a card to share with you today. It's a birthday card that uses one of the flowers from the Flower Set at Squigglefly. I really enjoyed using my colored pencils to color these when I used the kraft card stock, so I wanted to use them again using white card stock.

Before printing the image, I changed the color from black to blue. You can see a video that shows you how to do that using a photo editing program HERE. I also used the Birthday Wishes sentiment from Squigglefly, changed the color of it, and printed these both at the same time. Once printed, I used colored pencils to color with. the border at the bottom was embossed with a border embossing folder from Provo Craft. It's a pretty quick card to make!
I hope your Monday is wonderful, and thanks for looking!
