Happy Birthday and a new challenge at Anything But a Card

Good morning!
Happy Birthday to me!
Yep, that's right, I'm another year older, 
and you all get the present!!!
I have a present for one of you
I picked up some of my favorite things to share with you!
A Tim Holtz stencil, and rub ons,  then there is a stamp set, and some wood veneers that are hearts and arrows.
What do you need to do to win??
Well, just follow my blog, and leave me a comment telling me what your favorite cake is. 
Mine by the way is vanilla cake with vanilla frosting!
And I live some great icecream to go with it of course too! 

So many of you may have found my blog through the new challenge at Anything But a Card
this month the challenge is Green with Envy,
and I'm sharing a fun little canvas that I made. 
Green isn't a color that I use a lot in my crafting, so this was a bit of a stretch for me.
But I recently got some of Dina Wakley's scribbly birds,
and I thought it would be fun to stamp and then paint the birds up.
I found some little canvas' (5x7) at Michaels, and went to town. 
I have to admit the stamping part was a little messy and uneven, 
but once I started painting it was so fun and soothing!

I hope you all join in the "Green" fun, and join the challenge,
and don't forget to leave a comment with your favorite cake!!! 

The Birthday giveaway will close on March 14th.
