Seize the Birthday & The Friday Mashup

Moving right along with another post for you all today! Hope you are having a nice weekend. Getting ready to take our kiddos over to their talented Auntie's house for their Valentine's Day Photoshoot :) 

But before we head out here is the card I created for the Seize the Birthday and Friday Mashup Challenges this week. Seize the Birthday is a new blog challenge created by the same talented stamper who brought us Merry Monday, Freshly Made Sketches, Dynamic Duos... Am I forgetting any Lesley? :) The goal is to make one birthday card a week to make sure your supply never runs low. Also Holly over at The Friday Mashup is celebrating a birthday this week so let's all wish her a Happy Birthday!

My Challenges:

Make a project with a "Birthday Theme".
Or Make a project using "Brads".
Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Birthday project with some brads".

My Card:

It has been a while since I used this stamp set and I forgot how much I enjoy making cute masculine boy cards. Going to have to double up and add a few more to my collection!  

Take the time to let your creativity bloom!
