Lawnscaping Challenge: Birthday sponsored by Simon Says Stamp PLUS FREE GIFT

Hello! Welcome to the 25th Lawnscaping Challenge, which marks our first birthday! Can you believe that Lawnscaping has officially been around for a year? We are so excited that this challenge blog has been successful because of all of you who play along!!!!! Make sure you read all the way to end of this post because there is a gift for all of you!!!!

Naturally, we just had to go with a birthday theme for this challenge! We are being sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp!!!!!! Β They have generously offered up at $25 gift certificate to their store!

For the challenge, think cards, invitations, gifts, scrapbook layouts, etc… There is a world of opportunity here.. I woke up at 5AM this morning to make a card. With the Christmas holiday, bouts of sickness and then most recently a migraine which lasted for 27 hours with no relief, I just couldn’t get into my craft room! I had a great idea to play out, but between the yawns and stuffy head, it just didn’t come to life, πŸ™ I hope to get back in there this week and make something else for this challenge! But for now, let me show what you what I did create:

I had this idea of critters jumping out of the cake! The cake was colored with Copics and I added a touch of stickles to the bottom layer!

Now, I did mention a free gift to all of you! We want to thank you for making this challenge blog successful and to celebrate our first birthday, we wanted to to give something to all of you! Be sure to head on over to the Lawnscaping Home Page to get it! It is so cute!

Please play along in our current challenge! You have until next Wednesday, January 11th to get your entries in! Plenty of time to get crafty!!! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!
