New labels, papers, and a birthday GIVEAWAY!

This contest is closed. The winner is announced on THIS POST. Thank you all for your birthday wishes for my daughter.

Last night was Gina K Design's release party with all the new goodies. But before I share about my new stamps, I just want to greet my first baby a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I typed this post last night, exactly 11 years since I felt labor pains for the first time ever...and they weren't as bad as I had expected :-). 5 hours later, I finally held God's little blessing in my arms. And if I may say so, she was the prettiest half-Asian baby ever born in that Croatian hospital :-).

Here she was at 2 weeks old:
And here is a more recent photo taken this summer.
I made her this card:
Using my latest Lovely Labels 2 and Fanciful Tags sets.
The tag on my card was made from a printed digital paper from Vintage Basics.
In honor of my girl's special day, I'm giving away a sampler pack of yummy seam bindings (like the one I used on my card above) that my girls and I hand-dyed, some fine European lace AND a copy of Vintage Basics digital paper pack.

Just leave me a comment below and I will announce the winner on Thursday.
By the way, these ribbons coordinate with GinaK's Turquoise Sea, Ivory, Innocent Pink, Rocket Red/Red Hot, Cranberry Tart and Kraft cardstocks.

    Nina, papiri su mi super. Šteta što se nismo uspjele naći na nekoj kavici kad sam bila u Krapini. Nadam se da se niste razboljeli... ja se još uvijek mučim s prehladom.

  21. Oh Nina what a beautiful young woman she is becoming. They grow up way too fast if you ask me. Just last year my son was 5 going off to his first day of Kindegarten and now he is this wonderful young man at 33 years old. I often ask him "when did you get so old". Enjoy everyday as it goes by way too fast.
