exciting news and a contest
You know that exciting news that I mentioned a few days ago? Well now I can finally tell you about it! I have signed on with The Greeting Place to produce a line of 24 cards to go with their "Go Girl" collection. I am super excited!

We have been working away like crazy to get enough artwork and images and quotes together.

Here's where the contest comes in! We decided it might be fun to ask you guys to participate!

Here's how it works, I will post an image below, and if you are up for it, you will post funny quotes/sayings that go with the image in the comments. If your quote is chosen yo
u'll get a free pack of cards with your saying on it, plus bragging rights to all your friends and neighbors ;)

A few rules:
-- the quote must be an original by you
-- it needs to be funny or a little tongue in cheek/ witty - no mean or dirty humor
-- nothing too long, no more than 3 lines of text
-- think of womens issues/women's humor since this is a line of cards for women
-- extra bonus points if you can work it into a birthday quote that goes with the image, Birthday cards are the hot sellers
-- Don't forget to post your email so we can contact you!

Also....... I will pick at random one winner from the comments to win a free pack of PoppetĀ® Rubber Stamps. I will do the drawing on Sunday and post the winner here.

OK have at it! I can't wait to see what you guys come up with! Here's the image below!

martha thought she'd look better as a blonde...but did she really want that pressure to be hot?

Their horoscope said it was going to be a good hair day.

If fifty is so nifty, why is it such hard work?....

Martha came for the coffee and gossip...

Between them they were a hundred and nine...

The gossip magazine said Martha's info was wrong...(inside the card)
but she lied about her age too.
 
"Cindy, Bev and Marge were ready to take on the world with their hot new hair-do's!"

And congrats on your card line, Claudine!
 
The girls and I have decided that a luau would be the most darling way to celebrate!


--------

We knew once we decided on a 'girls only' event, anything was possible!
 
Margie's favorite birthday gift was a day at the salon and some juicy gossip.

**********************************
A new 'do is wonderful, but a new 'do with some gossip is totally divine!
 
"Can you believe we're at the age where we enjoy a day at the beauty parlor?"
 
"Do" have a marvelous day...

(inside) Happy Birthday!
 
You always were a girl with trendsetting style...
 
oh thanks guys! these are great! keep them coming!!
 
And they wondered, "Would their husbands have sprung for their day of beauty had they known they would be talking about them?
 
Beauty may be only skin deep but it sure helps when you have friends to support your attempt.

Life is like a beauty parlor...
you never know how it will turn out.

Good friends and beauty parlors go together like hair dryers and mousse.

Celebrate real beauty...it's ageless!

She smile & chatted amongst them while knowing her coiffure would truly be the finest of them all!

I'm not one to gossip...but...I wonder if she still believes only her hairdresser knows for sure.
 
I really like the idea of this contest. It really perked up my day. Here are my entries.

Happy Birthday!

Congrats to you. I'm excited to see your cards. Here are my ideas:

You're looking hotter every year, Happy Birthday.

Who needs an up-do with friends like you? Happy Birthday.

Hope your birthday is {permanantly} filled with joy.

The things we do to stay looking 29. Happy Birthday!
 
Congratulations. Things seem to be really going your way this year Claudine...I'm so happy for you.

Love the image.

Here's what came to my mind:

Everything is better when you have a good hair day.

or

Although her dryer wasn't on, she enjoyed the company.

or

These girls are 'hot'...
(inside) even without the dryer.

or

Is my hot flash over?, or did the dryer turn off?

or

Everyone deserves a little pampering

(inside) with a little gossip on the side.

-Enjoy! ;)
 
Ohhhhh Congrats on your cards!!!!

Here is my take!

"Dotty says she's turning 21 again"! Said Nancy
"Now whose blowing the hot air"!!thought Gretle.
Have a very stylish Birthday

or:

"Do my ageless features look funny in this hat?"
Happy Birthday to a timeless beauty

"I must admit" said Dotty
"When you said party hats!I was thinking smaller, pointier and less rocket-launcherish"
Have a blast this Birthday

Good luck with your project
