Birthday Celebration Begins on FBW

Today kicks off a month long celebration over on Danni's blog. Her birthday is Friday and what better way to celebrate than to give away a bunch of awesome goodies!! That's right head over to her blog now and see how you can enter to win an awesome giveaway! Plus all month long we'll be doing special challenges, issued by no other than the birthday girl herself. And if that isn't enough for you, each week there will be a special guest designer - this week is Christy Croll! I just adore her Huggabugs - they are so darn cute! Don't forget my fellow DT sisters will all have some awesome creations to look at as well so be sure to stop by their blogs!!

The challenge this week is to create a birthday card using a butterfly or fairy. Remember you must have the butterfly or fairy on your card somewhere in order to play along. I'm always needing birthday cards and I just received these cute pixie stamps a couple of weeks ago so I immediately knew what I'd be using!


The paper is KI Memories (one of my favorites) which is where I drew my colors from for the image. I used my Copics and am very pleased on how this turned out. Who am I foolin' I think it's darling!! I drew inspiration for the layout from a Mojo Monday sketch but didn't really even stick to it since my image was much larger than I thought. I should point out that I added the presents to the wheelbarrow. It was a clear stamp from Michael's and it had a little heart which matched the wheelbarrow exactly. I love it when that happens! Makes me feel like it's ok to have all this stuff, LOL!

So whatcha think? Are you going to play along? You know you want to - I'm sure you've got a birthday to celebrate soon - I do, Abby's is Saturday. Yep, my little girl will be 6!! If anything you could make one to send to her. Nevermind...scratch that! You better make one and send it to Danni - I mean she's the master behind this whole FBW thing for which I'm grateful for! She's a heck of a girl - very nice, so supportive and wickedly talented. Gotta love her! Happy Birthday Danni and thanks for everything!!

Thanks for stopping by!
