Happy Leap Day!

The 29th of February only comes once every 4 years, so it's a pretty special occasion. I wanted to make a card to celebrate, but who in the world would I send a happy leap day card to? So instead I settled for a "Happy 29th" card. I used the chef and birthday cake from the Voila set so it's obviously intended as a birthday card. Inside it will say "Again!" And it will just be our little secret that it was really created to celebrate the 29th of February, OK? Pretty sneaky on my part, don't you think?

I was so happy to take out the Voila set again -- it's been a while since I used it. I really love that chef and I love paper piecing his coat and hat. This time I used the so saffron prints designer paper. I think it makes him look pretty dashing.

So why is it that I want to celebrate the 29th so badly? Because I'm offering a leap day special, of course!
What's the special? Well, all orders of $50 or more submitted to me tomorrow, Friday, February 29th, between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., will receive a free gift in addition to the free sale-a-bration product.
