Featured Holiday Birthday Card

Challenge #215 - Holiday Birthday

Happy Wednesday all!  Tammy here for this week's challenge. I'm a bit late getting it posted as I had no time last night to draft it, since I was out for dinner celebrating my birthday!!  Yup--I'm a lucky December baby, who, as a child, often received birthday presents wrapped in Christmas paper and the common--"Here's your birthday/Christmas present!" So . . . that made me think of this week's challenge:
   Create a HOLIDAY BIRTHDAY card

That's right--you get to play with two stashes of goodies--birthday and Christmas.
Here's the card I made with a bit of masking and stamp manipulation to create a festive birthday greeting:

Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT created,
 then link up your Holiday Birthday card below.

Challenge #211 - Keep In Trim!

Hi there, Jayne here with this weeks challenge.

I don't know about you but I have loads of trim hiding in my stash.  It's the sort of thing I buy frequently for no other reason than it looks pretty, but when it comes to using it, my motivation usually deserts me!

There lies my challenge......I'd like to see you use 'trim' in some way or form on your creation.

I actually managed to use a couple of different types on here so my 'trim' stash has now decreased slightly!

Feel free to check out a little more inspiration from the rest of the Girlfriends, and don't forget to link up your own creation below so we can stop by to say 'Hi'.

Have fun and I'll be back on Tuesday with our featured faves.
Enjoy the week,
