Challenge #23 - Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to another challenge here at Southern Girls!!!! We are stoked you came along and had a look and hopefully you will play along. This week we want to see projects with a birthday theme. As always our challenge is open to all types of papercraft, scrapbooking, ATCs, cards, off the page..... if you make it with paper, we want to see it. We had an awesome number of entries last week, I know we can do better though..... particularly you New Zealanders and Australians! Every week we get a huge number of international entries and not really very many of you Southern Hemisphere papercrafters. We know you are out there..... hmmmmm maybe you just don't like winning stuff? So this week we challenge you to enter! You have to be in to win and if you haven't got a link there on the link thing we can't visit you can we? No Blog? No Worries...... Just email us a pic of your project and we will post a picture on our blog and you will go in the draw as well, what a deal! (hmmmmm can you tell I used to be in sales?lol)
So get inking, glueing, painting.... whatever it is that gets your creative juices flowing and join in!

Here is a few words from Stitchy......

Hi my name is Stitchy and I am Co-Owner of Stitchy Bear Stamps...we started this store April 1st, No Fooling haha..I live in upstate New York with my husband and two TEENAGE adults haha, I do say that loosely as they think they run the show here, NOT...

I been creating stamps for a little less than a year now and I am totally addicted to the craft..I started about 4 years ago making digital scraps and I knew there was much more out there, so a friend of mine introduced me to digital stamps...and the rest they say is history...I look forward to seeing all the beautiful creations come through...good luck everyone..stitchy xoxox"
