As I've mentioned before, Papertrey Ink is celebrating their four year anniversary. Along with this celebration comes contests and challenges where you can win some REALLY great prizes. Today, we were introduced to Make it Mondays and I'm quite giddy about this. Every Monday they will post a new technique video and challenge us to use this new technique to make a card. Through out the week they will pick a "special" project and tweet it. At the end of the week, one of the special projects will be selected as the grand prize winner. This winner will get to chose a stamp set of their choice. Because I'm always looking for new techniques and ALWAYS making cards for friends, family, and co-workers, I plan to participate regularly. Today marks the first Make it Monday and the challenge is to go through your stamp sets and find a common sentiment and make a card using those stamps. It just so happens, that I needed to make a Birthday card this week, so that is the sentiment I made.
