Love the card!! I can't recall any birthday that stands out as my favorite, but I'm hoping my birthday in a few weeks will be!! We are having an Iron Chef pot luck party, even including a mystery ingredient. I hope it turns out to be memorable. Thanks for the chance to win a gift card!

Just love your Card. My favorite color is purple. Didn't have a lot of Birthday parties growing up. But when I turned 10. My Aunt made some Pumpkin Pies.Got me a little Cute doll and my Grandma got me a leather belt. I loved It!!! Thank you for the chance to win a gift Certificate. All of the Stores are about 50 miles away. That would give me a great excuse to go. :0)
