Ruby's Birthday + a very cool Blog candy

I so love going from blog to blog and admiring people's talents and creativity. Yesterday I found Karin Hoeve's Blog - Scrap Everything.
The first thing I've read about in there was that her daughter will turn 6 in August - coincidence, my baby brother is in August too, he'll turn 44 this year - LOL

Karin is generously offering a marvelous blog candy consisting of a bag full of nice goodies: a lot of Berry Sweet papers, Ribbon, Flowers, an Alphabet clearstampset, Brads and a lot of stamp prints.
-- That's a big WOW, yes? :D --

To be one of the possible lucky (more like truly blessed, considering the candy) winners, here's the challenge you have to face:
1 - Make a card, or a treat bag or a birthday party invitation and post it on your blog.
(you get 1 entry)
[It also can be an old one posted earlier on your blog]

2 - Make a post about Karin's challenge/candy and tell everyone about it (you get 1 entry)

3 - Link Karin on your blogroll ( you get 1 entry)

If you complete all things you'll be getting 3 entries.

This challenge/candy stays open until August 5th (Karin ships worldwide)

I just loved the sound of it all and thought I'd give it a try. So I made this birthday card for Miss Ruby :)

It is a very simple card but I did it with all my heart and had a great time working on it.

I printed out almost everything on it:
  • the backing papers are from Scrap Girls (free download)
  • the adorable cutie pie is another freebie, this time from Kim Elizabeth MacFarlane's website, Cuddly Buddly. It's in the "Funny Faces" collection.
  • the sentiment's funky colourful letters come from Lettering Delights [yes, of course, another freebie ;)]
The rest is stuff I had around the house: a piece of ribbon, a foam number, a fabric flower, some glitter and 3 tiny flower embelishments.

I don't know if Karin and Ruby will like it, but I hope they won't hate it too much. :)

Happy crafting!
