Cheers to YOU!

Good morning friends, it's time for a new challenge at From The Heart Stamps.  You can use the sketch or the theme (Birthday) or both and you and even add the colors we have given you but it's not necessary.  I am using Birthday Brew, I colored with copics and added some liquid applique for the foam.  Since we did not have our monthly blog hop this month at FTHS, Faith has given each one of the DT members a $10 voucher to give away this month (she is so generous)! I am giving mine away this week.   All you need to do is leave me a comment on this post if you are a follower you will get an extra entry and if you play along in this weeks challenge you will also get an extra entry for that.  When you leave me a comment make sure you tell me if you are a follower and plan on doing the challenge.  I will pick a winner and announce it next Monday. Make sure I have a way to contact you.  Remember you need to use a FTH image to play along and everyone who does will get a $1 voucher to the FTH store and one lucky person will get a $5 voucher to the store.
