There are three hundred and sixty-four days
when you might get un-birthday presents,
and only one for birthday presents, you know.
~ Lewis Carroll
Is today your birthday? Or is it your un-birthday? Either way, it's Party Time.
I'm celebrating one of my 364 un-birthdays. Hey, any excuse, right?
But, for anyone actually celebrating a birthday today . . . how about a big red bow as a place card for your birthday dinner?
This place card is also a lollipop holder – but I'm such a party critter, I already ate the lollipop.
That crazy bow is made with the new Jumbo Beautiful Bow Die-namic. It's attached to the lollipop treat holder with a white bulldog clip so it can be removed, and put, well, just anywhere – like maybe as a pin on the birthday person's lapel.
Be careful, you could be just sitting around watching the basketball playoffs when someone sticks a birthday bow on you. (I do think birthday bows make a wonderful fashion statement and should be worn 365 days a year.)
It's day five of the My Favorite Things Teasers, and today we're revealing the latest Doodle Gardens sets, Party Time and Fluttering By.
Can you tell how crazy I am for this Blueprints product. Each new set of Blueprints Die-namics includes a PDF of sample layouts. You can see the Blueprints #1 sample layouts here. Honestly, making this card with the Blueprints system was so easy – it almost felt like cheating.
I used one of the Blueprint layouts for my card today, but I just switched out the circle in the Blueprints set for the circle in the Lollipop Treat Die-namic set. I stamped a sentiment from the new Lollipop Additions – Birthday, and adhered the circle to the card from with a Red Hot button and some red twine.
Here are the Copic markers I used and the rest of the ingredients.
Other ingredients: pebbles seen & noted paper pad, American Crafts Twine, Making Memories Cheeky Board Clips, Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink.
I have good news and bad news . . . The bad news is you can't purchase these new stamps and Die-namics just yet. But, the good news, is that they'll be available March 11 and we get to Party Hardy all the way up to the release.
