It's Your Birthday

I am thrilled to be here with my first DT creation for Festive Friday where every challenge is an inspiration list based on a selected holiday/festivity from the traditional to the unusual. Challenge projects must include at least three items from the festivity inspiration list. 

Since the Inspiration List is a mix of elements related to the festivity, the creator has the choice to make something for that actual festivity, or to ignore the festivity all together and create something using just the elements selected.

For example, an Inspiration List for the festivity “Talk Like A Pirate Day” could include pirates, birds, water, boats, black, etc... A more literal submission would probably use pirates and maybe a parrot with a fun pirate pun sentiment. But, a project with a sailboat on the water with birds in the sky and a “happy birthday, husband” sentiment would also qualify for the challenge. It is important to note that, though the list is based on a holiday or festivity, the final creation does not need to reflect that holiday.

I love the concept and format of this challenge, and I am pleased and proud to be joining this wonderful team of designers.

My project includes red, black, baker's twine, stripes. heart, dog and embossing. My skateboarding birthday dog is from Julie Ebersole's Clever Sausage (Essentials By Ellen). Balloon heart dies are from Poppystamps.

FF0065 is a celebration of National Dog Day. See the Inspiration List above. Lots of fun things to choose from! You can visit the Festive Friday blog to see the "pawsome" inspiration that the Design Team has created to spark your imagination, or you can link to their blogs here by clicking each designer's name:

I was inspired by the adorable dog having fun! My Dachshund is having fun as well in this Clean and Layered design.

So lovely to see you on the team at FF Stephanie - congratulations on the gig! I love playing there - an inspiration list always works for me!! Your fabulous card made me smile. I love the little dachshund, who appears to be so comfortable in herself that she can go for walkies on a skateboard while wearing a party hat, a bold coat and a bunch of balloons on her tail!!!

This is such a fun card. I love your little pup, all dressed up and on her skateboard. You are giving me many ideas about how to play along.

Congrats! I had to come over and tell you how great this card is! The Clever Sausage is at the top of my wish list and you have used him perfectly on this card right down to the little pom pom topper on his striped party hat! Nice job!
