Welcome to a Groovy New Release ***GIVEAWAY***

A big shout out to all you cool cats and chicks out there in blogland.  Kristy has created a boss new set that you are going to want to score.

Check it out...

This chick has got it goin' on.  Check out those groovy threads she's wearin'.  Righteous huh?!  If the name of the set sounds familiar, its because this set was modelled after our very own HippieAud--Audrey.

The DT thought this set was far out and a couple of the ladies including Kristy herself, had a blast making some choice samples...

Are you keen on winning this hip set, as shown above? To be eligible, simply leave a comment answering the following question. Time to show your age...

  Were you around in the 60s to enjoy 
the groovy age of Flower Power?

  While I may have technically been around, I was but a wee little chick having been born in the later half of the decade so I didn't get to experience the freedom of this time period. Seems to me like I missed something very far out and hip.

You have until 3:00 p.m. (PST) on Friday, July 29th, to get your response submitted. 

We will announce the winner of this set on Saturday, July 30th at 3:00 p.m.  Don't forget you'll have just two weeks to claim your prize, if you are the lucky winner!  Ya dig me?!

Happy Friday! Donna here today with another baby project. My sister-in-laws sprung a baby shower on me with only two weeks notice. They forgot that I make a lot of my gifts so I am scrambling to get things done. One of the things my daughter needs is thank you cards to send to those who give her gifts so she asked me if I could help out with those. Could I say no to making cards? I don't think so! Because I have to make a LOT of these cards I kept it simple.

I used the Little Blessings pre-colored images and die cut them with Spellbinder's Lacy Squares. The sentiment was made and printed from my computer. It's tough to find a sentiment about twins. And the designer paper is from Imagine That! Sweet Pastels Digi Paper

Thanks for checking out my project. Over on my blog I have some tip for mass producing cards if you want to stop by. Make it an awesome weekend!
