A birthday and an announcement!

Hello there. April 30th....wow where did the rest of the month go????!!!! Well I will start this post with the announcement. I am pleased and honored to announce that I have been asked to join the Creative Belli Challenge Design Team!!!!! I have been following and playing along with this blog for a very long time...actually I think I started back in one of the first few challenges...lol. This is a awesome challenge blog that encourages us to use stuff we already have. If you are like me you are always going out and buying the newest papers, brads, glitters, ribbons, and a whole bunch of other embellishments...and pretty much ignoring the ones that were last years latest and greatest. Well the Creative Belli blog is a great way to use that stuff up...and play along with some fun challenges. So...I am thrilled to be a part of this DT, and look forward to sharing my creations with you in these bi-weekly challenges. Don't forget to stop by the other DT ladies blogs and see all the talent on this team. (There are links along the left sidebar)
Well today I am playing along with the current challenge, which is Birthday Card. Easy right?...yeah don't forget the catch...we don't want to see the new birthday themed PP you bought yesterday...we want you to pull out the one you bought last year and finally use it...and don't stop at "old" paper...use stamps, brads, etc. Well here is my card I came up with.
I needed a birthday card for my nephew's party tomorrow. He is all into boy things and sports, so I found this sports paper in my stash. I think this PP is at least 2 years old...lol. It was from the Target Dollar Spot. You know they are really good there at making me think I need all the stuff in the Dollar section, after all it is only $1! So why I bought sports themed papers I don't know, but I figured now is the time to use it. The sentiment in the middle is from a SU set that I have had for a while too...think I may have used it once...lol. I used red CS for the base (4 3/4 x 4 3/4), layered the squares around the edge, and added the sentiment with foam tape to the middle.
Well, that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to stop by the Creative Belli Blog to play along every other week.

Congratulations on joining the Creative Belli Design Team! I have scrapbook paper . . . and I don't scrapbook . . . and I can't seem to cut into it; yes, I am a confessed embellishment hoarder--I think long and hard before using some of my embellishments--has to be for the "right" person (ugh!). I have that stamp set, too . . . haven't inked it up yet, but it is mounted, so that's a step in the right direction! ;-)

Congrats on joining the DT. I usually don't do challenges. Guess I find them too challenging LOL! I'm going to pop on over there and see what it's all about and maybe I will join you on this.
