Lots of birthday wishes

Morning blogland,

Time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and this fortnight it's a theme of Birthdays! The reason for this theme? It's because Sweet Stampin' Challenge is 13 years old today! 

Makes me feel old - I remember joining the team first time round when TTT was SWMbO and to explain to anyone who is wondering what nonsense I'm spouting these are my names for my daughter.  She's currently known as 'The Terrible Teen' (TTT) but when I was first blogging was a small child who liked to get her own way hence 'She Who Must be Obeyed'(SWMbO). My goodness where does the time go!

Anyways, onto the official stuff - you can enter any craft project you like into the challenge, it doesn't have to be a card, but as we are a stamping challenge, there does need to be some element of stamping on your project. We don't mind if rubber or digital, that's up to you!

I make mostly birthday cards and haven't blogged many of them recently so had a lot to choose from. I couldn't pick from a couple of favourites, so I gave the choice of which to choose to Susan of Team Susan and she said - use both! So here are both.

Card one:

Card Two:

Supplies used:

Card one:
Digital stamp:
Saturated Canary - Be You
coloured with my Copics
Rubber stamps:
Time for Tea Designs - Bold Sentiments
taylored expressions - Think Happy Thoughts
Whimsy Stamps - You're my Always
un-branded stitched rectangle and alphabet sets

Card two:
Digital stamp:
Saturated Canary - Cupcake Cutie
coloured with my Copics
Rubber stamp:
taylored expressions - Simple Strips: Birthday
un-branded stitched rectangles
taylored expressions - Simple Strips: Well Rounded
LaLa Land Crafts Dies - Heart Banner

It would be lovely if you could find time to pop on over to the blog and join in - 13 years and still alive in Blogworld I think is a good achievement! You'll also see the fabulous array of cards my Teamies have made, and they are fabulous - Teamies and cards both!!

Hope to see you again soon,
