This 2 week challenge is all about BIRTHDAYS and OTHER SPECIAL CELEBRATIONS. You can make just about anything! LOVE it! I made two birthday cards, since I have 9 birthdays to celebrate this month! This first card was created using the CPS 207 sketch. I love love love how this card turned out--I love these Jillibean Soup papers--and this owl/sentiment are Itty Bittys from Unity's co-brand with Jillibean! LOOOOOOVE it! I'm also entering this card in the Paper Piecing Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. I am also entering these two cards in the ABC DT challenge {birthday}. 


This next card was made using the Ippity Hippity Hop Twist challenge sketch. I turned the sketch sideways, and made the cupcake {Ippity Cuppy Cakes} the oval. I love how those parenthesis {Ippity Here & Now} look around the sentiment. I also have to note--I died that seam binding by myself! ACK! I know! I am so excited:) I learned that technique from Lin and Virginia!! THANKS, ladies. 
That's it for me today--but you are going to LOOOOOOVE seeing what the ATU DT gals created. So hop on over to their blogs. 











And don't forget to link up your birthday or celebration creations over on the ATU blog! You could win the March prize package! This month we are giving away some Jillibean Soup papers and stickers. LOVE it! I *wish* I could win!


Head on over to the All Things Unity blog for more details too--remember to link up before Saturday, March 19th!! Can't wait to see what you make:)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm headed up to Orlando (again) today to visit with my favorite older brother and his wife!! I'll post pics soon! Be blessed:}
