DT Challenge: Happy 4th Birthday, IHP!

4bday i {heart} papers is thrilled to be celebrating our 4th birthday this month! We know there’s no way we could have made it this far without each and every one of our loyal customers sharing their IHP love with their friends or following us on Facebook, Twitter, our blog or through our newsletter. So, our celebration is really a celebration of YOU and our gift to you is a 25% off coupon for the whole store, valid 10/16-1-/20 (in stock items only not valid on prior orders and not valid on gift certificates). Use code: 4bdayIHP.  NOTE:  Shop early!  Once seasonal items are sold out, they will most likely not be restocked.  Also, the store will be closed from Oct 18-25th and there will be no shipping during this time.  Orders will resume shipping on 10/26.

We will also have a giveaways on the blog and on Twitter during these days (they’ll be linked from Facebook too but since giveaways aren’t technically allowed on Facebook we have to do it on the blog!) so be sure to check in daily to see how to enter.

dogsbanner But wait! There’s more! Long time customers know that Kate is a huge dog rescue advocate (that’s Mr. Barbo on the left and BooBoo on the right), volunteering for a local dog rescue, transporting dogs in need and doing rescue work on Facebook. October happens to also be Adopt A Shelter Dog month, as well as the birthday of one of Kate’s dogs and the Gotcha/Adoption day of the other. So, in honor of all of that, IHP will be donating 10% of all sales during the birthday sale to Home For Good Dog Rescue, Eleventh Hour Rescue and Pilots ‘n Paws. And if you make your own donation to any of these organizations, we will send you a gift certificate to IHP for 50% of your donation amount (these will be sent at the end of the month). Just email us a copy of your donation receipt and we’ll email you a gift certificate!

flowergarden_birthdayparty_6 For today’s DT Challenge, Deb found this post and this amazing inspiration photo that happens to be our logo colors!
I also made my project to coincide with the Hope You Can Cling To challenge 16th Day:  Two Times the Fun, hosted by stagccva, a/k/a Taylor
(Keyword: HYCCT1216).  The challenge was to use two of everything on your project - two different patterned papers, two different buttons, two different ribbons, two different stamps, etc.
