Early Heart Candy and Happy Leap Year!


Oddly enough, I actually know someone who has a birthday on February 29! My uncle! My parents just left to go to Vegas to visit him and celebrate his 64th (16th?) birthday! Isn't that nuts. He said he always hated his birthday because people only said Happy Birthday to him every 4 years!



Isn't this some lovely Heart Candy? This is a special stamp set from CTMH, it's an acrylix set called Serendipity and is now unavailable. All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this post by Tuesday midnight. I will choose a winner next Wednesday, March 5.

Here is a fun card using the Stampendous stamp Bee Trio, the sentiment is SU. Enjoy your extra day!

My neighbor's birthday is Feb 29-she would normally be 30 this year. The same age as my baby! At least she can pretend to be a kid a bit longer.

Hi allison the poster above me. I htink I am going to bed now-the grocery store took all my energy away. Too much too soon.

Cute card. Happy 29th February 2008! It must be strange/difficult for those with birthdays only once in every 4 years. Thanks for entering me. Such sweet candy.

Do something memorable or extra ordinary to remember this odd day! :) bluemoonbynite (at) yahoo (dot) com

Such cute stamps! My Aunt and Uncle got married on leap year.. they've been married for 16 years but this would be there 4th anniversary.. Some how I think my Uncle had something to do with that knowing he had to buy a present every 4 years! :)

Jaime said...

I have a friend that was due today, but was glad she went a day early. She said sometimes leap year birthdays can be a pain because computer programs don't recognize the date. I never thought of that.

Happy Leap Day! Thanks for a great giveaway!

One of my friends in high school was a leap baby too. Guess she'd be about 12 now!

thanks for the chance!

What a great CTMH set. Love it. Your card is so cute too. My niece was born on Feb 28. We all were hoping it wouldn't be the 29th. Of course, at my age, a birthday every 4 years would be pretty nice.

Love your cards and ideas. A co-worker has her birthday on leap day. She throws herself a bday party at work and everyone goes by all day to wish her a happy birthday many times during the day. This is to make up for each year she doesn't get a birth day.
Thanks for having great blog candy!
