Taking care of business and other good things

So, first of all, can I take care of some business?
Core'dinations is doing a feature on Graphic 45 papers and the new Graphic 45 Core Impressions Cardstocks and this includes some give-ways.  Check out the Core'dinations blog to put your name in for a prize.
Next, will you vote for me this week. I have a card at Scrapbook Etc that is in the running for a prize and you can vote each day this week.  Thanks if you have the time.
And, I just had a birthday.  I had so much fun receiving emails from all kinds of companies and businesses with birthday presents.  I needed to share the list with you. . .

I guess there are even more places that do this, you can search on the internet for more. It sure made the day fun.
Now to share a card - my Card Positioning Systems card for this week. I used some new stamps by Darcie Heater stamps.
Here is a link to this actual set

The set includes parts to create little guys, this penguin, a snowman, an owl, etc.  I just love the patterns in the different parts.
Many of the parts are interchangeable.  The background was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder on Gemstones Core'dinations.
And, last but not least - we went to Disneyland yesterday. It is amazing to go over the Christmas holidays.  I'll share more photos later but this is from the fantastic fireworks show. If you went for no other reason, you would want to go to see this.
The lights kept changing the colors of the castle - amazing!

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
