It's My Birthday Today! :)

I have the best friends, ever! It's no wonder we all get a long along so well with all three of our birthdays being within a week apart! are you ready for eye candy? It's like an homage to butterflies!!!

My friend, Valerie, gave me the card above along with this fabulous altered 'to do list' notebook

and this gorgeous toilet paper roll book below. What a fun project, I have to try one of these! I love them all, Val, thank you so much! :)

This stunning butterfly creation below is by another friend, Kim. She recently moved a couple of provinces away and I miss her dearly. This card will be posted proudly so that I'll think of her when I see it. Big hugs to you, Kim! Oh, by the way, my apologies, as this picture doesn't do justice to how gorgeous this card really is...the pierced layer just shimmers and the watercolours are absolutely stunning. It's definitely eye candy! Thanks so much for sending this gorgeous card to me along with the stunning stamps, too! I'll play with them soon. :)
This next card is from my Mum. She's recently got into card making and I'm so proud of her. I knew I could convert her from a devout'll only took about 10 years! lol :) Thanks so much, Mum, I love it.
What a wonderful selection of birthday cards I've received! All these butterfly creations are right up my alley! Thanks, so much, to all of you! You're the best!

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

TSC15: Birthday

It's challenge time again over at The Stampsmith Challenge. This time around, Val is challenging us to create a Birthday card or project since it's her birthday this month...actually our birthdays are both this month and only a day apart! It's no wonder were such good friends! Happy Birthday, Val! :)

Well, I'm not much into making typical birthday cards, so I decided to create this 'Birthday Star' project as a decoration for my my oldest daughter's new 'Glamour' themed bedroom. This project measures 8.5" x 10.5." It's going to become a wall hanging. I created the filmstrip using a double slot punch, over and over and over again! lol :)

The sentiment, Bring Out the Star In You and all three photostamps are from The Stampsmith. The sentiment can be found in the Say it With Flair Sayings plate. The top and bottom photostamps on the film strip are from the Fame#1 sheet and the middle photostamp is a single stamp called Bling! from the Singles2 page.

I hope you decide to play along in the fun and create a birthday project of your own. I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
