Freebie Alert & Card Linky Party: Happy 50th Birthday to Me!

Hello folks. Today is a big milestone for me as I turned 50 at exactly 2:28 p.m. this afternoon. I had wanted to do something really big and special on my blog this year in honour of this astounding occasion but unfortunately, having had to spend so much time tending to my hubs during his recent illness and then having to deal with getting sick myself and taking so long to recover, I haven't had the time to come up with a big plan. In fact I'm still rather far behind and still trying to catch up with all my behind the scenes duties! However, I couldn't let the day go by without at least a little something so I have decided on this.

I am going to have a link party. Link up any BIRTHDAY themed card during the next month for your chance to win any ONE of the following:
  • Naturally Cool Collection
  • Living on the Edge collection
  • Celebration Mini Kit + Heartland Mini Kit
  • Flower Power Kit
  • Holiday Hoopla Kit
  • Beauty of Butterflies Kit
  • Floral Cats Kit
OR you can choose from the smaller paper kits (not part of a larger bundle) that either have 12 papers or six papers in them for a total of 30 papers: i.e., two sets of 12 + one set of six; OR, one set of 12 + three sets of six; OR five sets of six. Most of these smaller sets are Christmas related though there are some that are spring, rainbows, weather related, textures, glitters, etc.

OR if you'd prefer, you can choose from six different sentiment sets (those listed at the bottom of my 'Design Previews' page, not those that are part of a larger kit).

Plus, depending on the number of entries linked up, I may have additional prizes.

If you would like to check and see what these sets look like you can find all of them on the 'Design Previews' page of my blog which can be found HERE or by clicking on the same named tab at the top of my blog.

Now of course, I can't let the day go by without a gift to you all. Those of you who've been with me for a while know that special occasions for me and my family members, mean presents for YOU! So today I bring you this digital paper...

This digital paper is 3600 x 3600 pixels, in jpg format and published at 300 dpi. I've used resources from Sheila Reid (Pixel Scrapper) and Eva-Katerina (Deal Jumbo). To grab it, click the download button to be taken to a download location. In the zip folder you will find a copy of the paper, its preview sheet, the full credit information and my terms of use which are standard to all my folders.

Linky Party Rules

The rules are pretty simple, just like you'd see at any other challenge or link up:
  • Enter using the Link up at the bottom of this post.
  • Entries must be Birthday themed but they can be any type of project you'd like (scrapbooking, digital, card, tag, mixed media, etc.)
  • You can use any image from any company. 
  • Entries are limited to a total of three.
  • No back linking. New creations only.
  • Please list my blog in your post just like you'd normally list any challenge you entered.
  • You must link directly to your post with your entry NOT to your whole blog.
  • I reserve the right to remove or disqualify any entry that does not meet the concept of this link up or the rules.

***Bonus Entry***

You can earn a bonus entry by doing the following:
  • If you use the above digi paper, or ANY other of my designs (paper, sentiment, embellishments, etc.), you will earn TWO entries for the prize. Be sure to add DDD after your name if you have used one of my designs. I have so many of them out there, I may not automatically recognize my work on your creation.

Well that should about cover it. I need to go and get ready for supper out with my hubby and a couple close friends. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day. I certainly plan to!!!

Until next time,

Link Up Below:
Please link up your birthday themed creation below. Remember to add DDD after your name if you have used one of my designs for an additional entry. You can link up until May 19th at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
