Birthday Blog Candy!

This month I've made quite a few birthday cards not only because September is a busy month for birthday's in our family/friends circle, but also because it's MY birthday and my oldest son's birthday.  I've also received some darling cards this month from some online friends and want to share those with you as well:

Card from Tasha-gorgeous coloring!  
My daughter wanted to snatch this right off my desk as soon as she saw it.

This card is from Samswindle on SCS-she's only a few towns over from me and this picture I took does NOT do this card justice at all-the flower is gorgeous and the dry embossing on the white is perfect.

I've been doing a lot of cleaning/clearing in my office and decided that I wanted to give away some goodies for our birthday's this month. The picture is not all inclusive of what I will be giving away...I'm still adding to it and will post updates whenever I can.  Here's a picture of the stuff I have collected so far (and some I'm not really *wanting* to part with, but they are my favorites, so I wanted to share).
Included right now:
*Stamps from Denami Design (pig used once)
*K*I Memories Ice Candy -perfect for Halloween
*Bazzill Paper Black Tie Bling Brads
*Silver, Opalescent & Turquoise Glitters from Stamp Affair
*Ribbon samples from Clear & Simple Stamps (Dare to be a Diva Red, Say Yellow to all your Fans & A Blanc Check)
*Lil' Davis Designs puzzle pieces
*Making Memories glitter gem
*Karen Foster Chain Charms
*TLC mini book
*K & Co. Designer Mat Pad

So in order to be entered into the drawing you must at least answer the following 5 questions in the comments section with 2 additional ways listed win below:

1.  Where do I do my stamping at?
2.  What companies am I currently designing for? (clue: 2 at this time)
3.  What are my favorite types of challenges?
4.  How many kids do I have?
5.  What are two of your favorite blogs to visit?  
(ahhh, I know I'm a favorite, thanks!  Really...I'm looking to see what awesome blogs out there I might be missing out on).

Leave you answers in the comments section and I will do a drawing from all the correct entries.  Leave a second comment if you are a follower or become a follower.  Leave a third comment if you feel like sharing with your blog readers by posting on your blog about my birthday blog candy.  You must do at least the first one to have a chance to win.
I want to say a special thank you to all that come and visit me every day, every week, every month.  I can't tell you how much it means to have my fellow stamping peers leave such wonderful comments, share ideas, and to share their friendships with me.  I've made such wonderful friends through the stamp community.

Okay, now for the deadline, I'm going to leave this open just a short while until we celebrate my oldest son's birthday on the 23rd.  I'll post a winner on the 24th and they will have 48 hours to contact me to claim the goodies.

Good Luck and Have Fun!

Happy Birthday to You....Now if I was a true friend I would have sent off a card to you - but alas I'm a slacker!

You stamp in your basement, design for Clear and Simple Stamps and Stampotique, have 3 kiddos, and love sketch challenges.

Since you like sketches - here's a blog you'd enjoy www.cardpatterns.blogspot.com as for a second blog share that you might not follow - try my friend Suzz http://suzzstampingspot.blogspot.com/

Hi Kim, happy birthday girlfriend, already said that on facebook but it bares repeating. Of course you stamp in your basement, you design for Clear & Simple Stamps and Stampotique, you like sketch challenges, you have three adorable kids and when I'm not looking at your blog, and Ida's, blog, and Lisa's blog, I like Pickled Paper Designs blog.

I've been doing lots of cleaning lately too. Birthdays are the best time to do stuff like that. I mean, if you can't be in Vegas for your birthday, why not clean. LOL

You really created a great card. It's adorable, done up in some awesome colors. Well done.

Happy birthday! I just had a birthday too, wish I had thought of something like this! Oh well, maybe next year! You stamp in the basement, have three wonderful kids, design for Clear & Simple (and it's not a company but I sure miss you on Oh, Alice!) and Stampotique, you love sketch challenges, and I think you would really like the Simplicity, Witticisms, and one from Sweden that you may not have seen but I really love: Rapport från ett skrivbord!!! Tip - translate pulldown is in the right sidebar but don't worry about the language, just enjoy the great cards with a Swedish aesthetic! Happy happy birthday!
