Let's Celebrate--Blog Candy!!!!

Blog Candy Winner: Random.Cara selected #176 this morning before school. I had to count the posts about 6 times to make sure I got it right (She couldn't pick an easy one, could she?) Woohooo! Congratulations to Christina Gerlof who said "Congrats on being 12! Wow, I remember when I turned 12 I was finally able to shave my legs! LOL Happy Birthday!" Congrats, girl! Please email me (email link is on the side of blog) so I can get your goodies to you!Happy Birthday Random.Cara! ***

Tomorrow my baby turns 12! Although Cara is my oldest child, she will always be my baby.

I am so blessed to have her in my life. She was born almost exactly one year after my first child was born. Although she will never know her brother on earth, I KNOW he is watching over her. I have always felt that she was given to me to help me through one of the darkest times. And I know how lucky I am to have her.


Happy Birthday, Cara!!!
I love you (to the moon and back) and I am so proud of the young lady you have become.

Her GIFT: For the past three years, Cara has begged for a cell phone. My answer was always---"We will talk about it when you are twelve." I really did not feel that she needed one. True-most of her friends have one but a lot of them go home to an empty house after school. Since I am at home, I didn't want to get her one before she was mature enough to handle it. (You would not believe how many calls we get from friends at 10:30 p.m. on a school night because they have their own phones.)

So, because her birthday is tomorrow---I took all the information she gave me (pink cell phone, text messaging) and created the perfect gift for her:




Here is the card as it opens up!
I love the bling on the front.





I created this cell phone card using the Text Messages set from Gina K Designs. I knew when I got this set months and months ago what I was going to do with it. I stamped the image on folded cardstock, close to the edge. I cut out the phone shape and left two little side connectors (so that the front would connect to the back.) The phone is colored with Copic markers. For a final touch, I used some Hero Arts Gemstones for around the screen. I love how this card turned out and I think my daughter will to. After she opens it up I will tell her how you can sing any song you want to customize the ring tone! SNORT!
(Ok.....my friend Kim thought this was mean. Just to let you know.....we did get her a REAL pink cell phone! She will get it after I make her sweat just a bit more! And yes...there will be rules set as to WHEN she can use it!)

Materials used: Text Messages (Gina K Designs); whisper white cardstock (Stampin' Up!); brilliance black ink; Copic markers; Hero Arts Gemstones.
BLOG CANDY
On to the blog candy---I am so surprised that my counter went over 100,000 hits. I would have loved to reach this milestone at a year but I am just shocked that I reached it at six months. THANK YOU!
To be entered to win---just leave a little note wishing Cara a Happy 12th Birthday!
Random.Cara will randomly select a winner on Monday morning! Good luck! (Subscribers are welcome to post twice!) Good luck!
Here is what the blog candy includes (sorry that the MFT set doesn't show up well, click link below to see the full set):
Going Places clear stamp set by My Favorite Things
Dr. Feelgood stamp set by Gina K Designs
Tube of Esprit Aqua primas
Miss Elizabeth's Mini Board Book Paper Craft Kit
Cardinal Stamp by Rubber Stampede
Making Memories-blue/green/orange ribbon & ribbon brads

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

***My Favorite Things will be releasing several new sets on Wednesday, June 4th. More information (and MFTeasers) to come!!!!

Birthday Hugs,

Keri said...

A VERY happy birthday to Cara, she shares it with my mother. And I can only imagine how a 12 year old acts around her birhtday, but my mom talks about hers for at least a month! "It's my birthday!" Have a wonderful day!!!

Sharon in NE said...

catdidit said...

Happy Birthday Cara! Almost a TEENager, yay! (dont know if MOM would agree, lol!) Enjoy your day and may all your wishes come true!

Happy Birthday Cara. 12 is such a fun age to be. Enjoy it and have fun! I love the card. What a lot of effort that went into that. I am sure Cars's going to have fun with her new phone!

Littlekel90 said...

What a terrific card idea. I think it is cute that you are teasing her a bit longer! That sounds just like something I would do for my DS!! LOL He is 15 and wants a NEW cell phone, as his old one is horrible to text from (dinosaur age, dontcha know, Mom). So . . . good grades this year? Then a new cell phone. Us mom's just have to set some rules, right?!

Happy Birthday, Cara!! I hope you have a TERRIFIC one! Twelve is such a fun age!! :) Don't wear your little fingers out texting!! :) Kelly L

Angie said...

Happy 12th Birthday Cara! 12 is such a big milestone! And Cammie, I'm so glad you guys got her the actual phone too. One year I begged and begged my parents for a puppy for Christmas. I opened up a little puppy ornament on Christmas day and my dad said that would have to do in place of a real puppy for now. I was so not happy! I never did get that puppy, until I got my own home and was the parent! Congrats on your 100,000 hits too.

Oh how fun!! Happy Birthday Cara!

My DD wants a cell phone too...well, actually they both do. My oldest is going to be 13 soon but we can't seem to convince her Daddy she "needs" one. the other DD is only 7...just just wants one because she likes pink LOL

I hope it is a wonderful day for your whole family!

Happy Birthday, Cara. Don't worry, my just turned 12 yr old daughter doesn't have a cell phone either. Not until she is 16 and driving is she allowed to get one. She is counting the days already! But she did order a laptop so maybe you can bug your mom for that until you get a cell phone!! (hehe Your mom is gonna love me on that one!) Hope you get some great presents and a yummy cake.

Dear Cara,
I hear the cell phone ringing...Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Cara, Happy birthday to you!!! Better the cell phone singing then me trying to do it. Have a great 12th Birthday!!!

Maria Levine said...

Happy Happy Birthday Sweet Cara!! I hear you on the cell phone, in some ways I think it's good for protective purposes, I remember as a kid making sure I had a dime then running around trying to find a pay phone! I'm sure she'll handle it well! I hope she has a super fab birthday!

thanks for the chance at the blog candy and it's great to still see you blogging!
