Happy Birthday and a Winner! {And a Giveaway!}

Hello on this very chilly Saturday! We have had a whirlwind week here in our household with last minute details for Christmas, cookie and candy making, a blizzard, a surprise birthday party for my brother and an extended family Christmas party. Here are a few pictures from this week, though you may have already seen them if you are a follower on Instagram.

 We ended up with about 10 inches of snow!

The girls had a blast playing outside.

And this is my grumpy ol' gnome of a brother at his party. He can fake grumpy pretty well can't he?

I will share my adventure in baking and making pictures with you tomorrow. It will prove to be a pretty yummy post! ;)

Next, it is a brand new challenge over on the 365 Cards challenge blog today. The prompt is Boy oh Boy: create a birthday card for a teenage boy.

And here is what I came up with:

Pretty simple and clean, but I think that fits pretty well with the theme! {Or at least with my nephews it would.}

I used some ribbon I have in my stash, along with buttons from My Mind's Eye and the 
Great Big Greetings stamp set from Market Street Stamps.

Now, to the latest winner from the Spirit of Giving giveaway.

The winner of this:

fine prize pack is

Denise Bryant!!

***Edited*** Hopefully the picture looks somewhat better now. I figured out what is wrong with my camera, and I now need to use it on manual focus only until I either get it fixed or purchase a new camera. I will apologize ahead of time, but my camera has gone into an early retirement, so I am having to make do with a sub. As soon as I can, I will replace my photos with some better lighted…
