Several of the girls on Lindsay's Design Team is celebrating birthday's in the month of July (including Lindsay!) so we decided this week we would go with a birthday theme! Happy Birthday ladies and also to anyone else who is celebrating this month!! I'm a November baby so I've still got a few more months to go before I reach 29!! (give or take, more like give snicker, snicker) Just joking I'll be 43 and that doesn't bother me, it's my body that seems to be the one having a hard time dealing with it!! For my card I used this yummy looking cupcake (remember I'm on a diet so this is the closest I have come to any sweets!) from Lindsay's Sweet Stuff set. Doesn't it look yummy?! I haven't had chocalate in sooo long and I know I could eat a jar of cherries if given the chance! Ok..sorry strayed away for a moment let me wipe the drool off hee hee! I colored the cupcake with my copics. I also want to mention I'm using a sketch from A Crafty Little Place. This is their challenge for the week using the sketch, stars, and stripes. I didn't think stars would go to well with what I was wanting to acheive so instead I made these cute little flowers using a Hot Off The Press template. I hand cut them out of white card stock and then just sponged with some red and brown ink. The brads were not exactly the right color so I went over them with my copics and tried to match. The leaves are from a Martha Stewart punch. I used a studio G stamp for my sentiment and the papers are some more scraps I had in my scrap bin. (I believe they are both by My Mind's Eye but don't hold me to it) Be sure to head over to Lindsay's blog tomorrow she will be having another awesome freebie and you don't want to miss it! She also has a new set out this week that I know your going to love!! And before I forget I wanted to mention that Lindsay is also having a 34% off everything birthday sale Thursday thru Saturday (in honor of her turning 34) Don't forget to check out the other DT ladies blogs (links are on my side bar or on Lindsay's blog) to see how they are celebrating this week!! Thanks for looking and I still have a few more projects to share with you this week so please come back!!!
