New Release Sunday -- and a Giveaway!

Today's a BIG day!  It's new release Sunday at DigiStamps4Joy, it's my birthday, and it's the day of my giveaway.  Stay tuned, and I'll get to it all.  First, the new release at DigiStamps4Joy.  There are new releases every. single. Sunday.  Today is no exception.  When Margy, the owner, gave us this week's image to work with, I knew instantly what sentiment I wanted to pair it with.  Here's my creation:

One of the new images released today, and the one I used on this card, is called, "Call a Cab".  

I printed out my digi, colored her with Copic markers, then mounted her on some backing paper and mounted that on 3D foam squares.  I won papers on the card last summer at a crop event and these are some pieces I've been hoarding.  I don't remember the company.  I know the card base is BoBunny Double Dot. The sentiment is a Unity Stamp Company stamp.  The ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM.  It's the new Tie Dye 2 Bundle.  The black bling flourish is from Close To My Heart. There's some Close To My Heart Liquid Glass on the sunglass lenses to make them shiny (hard to see in the picture).
Do you see my new oval base floral frog?  My BFF gave that to me as a birthday present.  She found this one and another one at an antique shop and sent them to me.  I'm SO excited!! I love the shape of this one!
And now, for my celebration giveway.  It's been going on since June 27th.  I've had 15 blog posts since then.  I used to decide which post the winning comment should come from.  It chose post #12. I used again to pick which comment from that post would be the prize winner.  The comment was comment #3, Donna K!
Donna said: "Congratulations on your latest DT assignment Julie! I'm in awe of your busy schedule and creative life lady! I love your Foxy Fay box...the sentiments are FAB!!"

Congratulations, Donna K! Send me your address, and I'll send you your prize!
Now, I'm off to celebrate my birthday.  We were going to go on a looooong Harley ride since it's Sunday and we both have the day off.  But, there's a 70% chance of rain today.  We're going out to eat instead, then my very patient husband is taking me shopping at not 1, not 2, but 3 scrapbook stores in the BIG CITY!  Oh, I do love that man!
