Happy Birthday Tommy!

Time for a new challenge at Time Out. We are celebrating Alphabet Magnet Day! Who knew???? I had a hard time coming up with something for this one, but THIS article helped. I think it's pretty cool. I so remember these letters all over my refrigerator when my kids were little.

We are sponsored by Altenew. They are providing a $15.00 store credit to our challenge winner who will also be invited to join the Time Out Design Team as Guest Designer for a future challenge. We are so pleased to have Carol McFarland of Saw it. Had to Make It. as our Guest Designer for this challenge. Carol is a wonderful card maker an a frequent player at Time Out. Check out her wonderful make for the challenge HERE.

I needed a birthday card for a four year old family member who is a true ginger!!! His pet name is Tommy Pumpkin, so I made him a carrot colored balloon card with his name spelled out in "alphabet magnets".

Please head over to the Time Out Challenge Blog to see what Carol and the Design Team have created to inspire you. I can't wait to see your project in the gallery.

Remember, we allow links to a total of 5 challenges including ours. We also need you to tell us in your post, how you were inspired by the quote. Check out the rules in "how to play" on the sidebar of the challenge blog. See you in the gallery!

I've never met a 4-year-old anywhere that didn't LOVE seeing his/her name spelled on any old thing! He's going to love your card, Stephanie - I sure do!

Love your take on the TO pic Stephanie - what a great background for the name (might have to CASE it as my son's name is Tom!)

It is so special when you can personalize a card and you did it not only with a name but also a color. Fantastic card, Stephanie. I bet Tommy loved it.
