Simon Says Stamp

 

Okay, now that we have that out of the way, I need to remind you of our over the moon amazing sponsor for this week’s challenge!!  Simon Says Stamps – the PREMIER online crafty shopping experience – is once again sponsoring this week’s challenge (it’s the monthly Guest Designer Challenge!!), and not only have they provided a terrific prize for this week’s TGIF Winner, I “heard” that they’ve also thrown in some additional prizes that you can hear all about over at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog.  Thank you so much, Simon Says Stamps – YOU ROCK!!

CFC51 - Birthday Wishes

Enough blah, blah, blah – right?!  Here’s my sample for this week’s challenge, which is BIRTHDAY – create a CLEAN & SIMPLE project with a birthday theme!!  Happy!  Happy!!  I won’t bore you too much with the details.  I actually created this for my future brother-in-law, who is a motorcycle maniac!!  Like over the top fanatic, I tell ya!  He’s been bugging me for two years to make him a birthday card, and thanks to today’s challenge, I finally got around to it.  His birthday was in February . . . yep, I pretty much SUCK!!  LOL  But I understand that he liked it, so I think I’m off the hook, at least until next year.  Hehehe

 

Thank you so much for sticking with me here, assuming of course that you did.  When I say that the time you spend visiting me here means the world to me, I mean that from the bottom of my heart.  No, really!!  So thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a great weekend!!  XO
