See Ya Later & Birthday Card Contest

Do you have a lot of birthdays in the spring? I know we do here in the Merck household. During the months of March and April, three of us celebrate birthdays, with my husband being the odd ball in November. So over the next few days I’ll be sharing some birthday cards with you.

See Ya Later

Today’s card uses the See Ya Later Stamp Set, one of the FREE Sale-a-bration choices. I love it’s quirky images and fun sayings. And this set covers a lot of different occasions though out the year which makes it a great choice too.

Did you know that there are just 19 days left to get your FREE Sale-a-bration items? Sale-a-bration ends on March 31st, yikes! There is still time left to earn your freebies or be a Hostess and earn even more. Why not contact me today and set up a time to hold your Sale-a-bration party.

This card also uses some of my favorite items from the Occasions Catalog – namely the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. How many different ways can you see to use these new punches?  You can click HERE to see a treat project I made with this punch recently.

Fun, right?
