Blogger's Challenge 142: Birthdays

Today is a great day for Blogger's Challenge.  It's a celebration of Birthdays!!!  And our list Mom, Lisa always has reasons behind her weekly challenges.  

Her birthday is Monday, so we are celebrating and what's even better...my other buddy Gerrie Johnnic has a birthday on Monday too.  And a few others in the Blogger's Challenge have birthday's around this same time as well.

So, my friends, I hope you have a wonderful Birthday!!!!  Wish I could be with you both and have a little PF Chang's & some wine (or Cheesecake Factory).

Now this may not look like you typical birthday card, but of course with my two buddies I had to have a little fun.  They were the first 2 I shared my joy of being on the Stampotique Originals Design Team and they loved the stamps as much as I did.  

I broke out some new products for me, which Lisa & Gerrie have inspired me to use, some Tim Holtz masks.  I bought a few Tim Holtz products after meeting him at CHA and scoring one of his dies.  

This is a new stamp I got called Linda and I've loved what I've seen done with her.  I mean check out this creation by Valerie Wilson, isn't that just too creative???

Hope you will join in wishing my friends a Happy Birthday and maybe making a card to join us in Blogger's Challenge.   You can check out the other girls' creations here.

OMG what a different way to use that stamp. Super Unique b-day for sure.

Lisa said...

O.K., at first, I thought this was a very odd stamp. I have never seen anything like it and thought it was odd. THEN, I went and looked at some of the other stamps and started to giggle. It's cute and I love your card and Linda!
