Time to Party - New York style!

Tuesday, January 14, 2014




Have I mentioned that today's my sweet daughter's 17th birthday? LOL   For her birthday gift, she and I are going to visit my family in New York this spring!  We haven't been to see everyone in a couple years so she (and I) are super-excited about her birthday gift!!  This is her birthday card, wonderfully inspired by these challenges...

The first is a color/inspiration challenge offered by a NEW challenge blog:


Simply Create Too is celebrating their 2nd birthday with an Anything Goes challenge.  It's the first time I'm playing in one of their challenges, but they are now on my challenge blog list!




Another new challenge blog to add to my list is Lawnscaping Challenges.  They are celebrating their 4th birthday!!  While they feature Lawn Fawn stamps/dies, I think it's ok to enter any products.  However, I've started "collecting" Lawn Fawn, too, and will be sure to enter in the future with some new goodies!

  13. Cityscapes are sooooo trendy right now! You did a fabulous job incorporating the colors into your card! Personally, I found this combo a bit tricky....but you nailed it! I love the depth & dimension that you have created on your card by popping up and layering the elements. The plane bearing the birthday wishes banner is such a fun way to present the sentiment!

    Thank you for sharing your card with us this week and for choosing to play along with the first ever Card Concept Challenge. Hope you will join us for challenge #2.
