6 years, a Discount Code and a Giveaway!

Hey there blogging friends!  Guess what?  Today is my blogs 6 year old birthday!  My blog is 6.  WHAT?  How did all this funness fly by so fast?  It has been amazing to meet so many blogging friends and work with so many fun companies.  I appreciate every visit and comment and am just tickled to be a part of such a great community!   So this post has lots of info.  So hang in there with me! I have a product review with a coupon code you will NOT want to miss and then a couple giveaways!

So I have a card that I made quite awhile back to share....I haven't made anything in quite some time.  I have been a full time mom for sure.  T-ball games, swimming, machine pitch, swimming, swimming lessons, swimming, VBS, swimming...did I mention swimming?  :)  I have permanent water in my ears for sure.  But it has been SO much fun!  My oldest is jumping off the diving board, which I was SURE would never happen!  My youngest is actually walking around in the 3 feet, which I assumed he would be clinging to me for dear life until he was 20 ish.  So it's been a good summer so far!

OK, so enough babbling.  On to the card....

A super simple birthday card today!  I used Neat and Tangled's On the strip for the background stripes.  I used Wplus9's White ink....love!  The sentiment is from Bountiful Banners from PTI.  I added some Enamel Dots and a little chipboard banner that I can't remember where it came from!  :)  Super simple!

PRODUCT REVIEW

OK, now on to some more fun stuff.  Recently, I got a ink stamp organizer from Organize More.  Have you been over there?  So much organizing goodness!  I have a little review today in the form of a video!  And another cool thing?  I have a 15% off discount code for you to use on anything in the store!

Check out the Pro Ink Organizer...



Another couple points I wished I had put in the video....this shelf is very light, which makes it perfect for the wall.  There is 2 saw tooth hangers on the back making it really easy to hang.  It stands perfectly on the dest top too!

So head over to Organize More and pick up something fun today!  If you are like me, you love to have everything organized...this is the place for you!  The code for your 15% off is "SOAPBOX".

GIVEAWAY

In honor of my blog birthday, I thought I would give away one of each of my Card Hanger Dies.


One rectangle, one decorative and one scalloped.  Leave a comment here and I will pick a name on Monday night, 6-24. Commenting ends on Monday at 12pm CST. 

SOME CARD FAVORITES

I thought I would end this post by sharing a few of my favorite cards from over the years.
