Birthday Bonanza Card & Candy!

Today is my birthday! I am very lucky to share it with Tim Holtz and another very talented friend of mine, Tracy!  January babies are the best!
The question is how I could celebrate all our birthdays in one? Linda from Grungy Monday Challenge solved my problem for me earlier this week, by setting a challenge that was to make Tim a birthday card. How could I refuse? So here is my card, which is a tag cut down, linked to another to form the card and Stampers Anonymoused, Rangered, Idea-ologied, and Sizzixed to honour Tim. Thank you Linda for the challenge, loved that it happened to be my birthday too :))





As you know I love any excuse to celebrate, so here is my birthday celebration for you... a whopping , mega bunch of candy!!


 Just comment here and if you would like another chance comment over on the Creative Team blog, and add me to your sidebar too....entirely up to  you.
I will post anywhere in the world,and will pick the lucky winner next Saturday..
Happy Birthday to Tim, and to everyone else who celebrates their birthday today
Hugs

Salamanda's Scrappy Adventures said...

Happy Birthday to you. I am also a January birthday and although I don't believe in horoscopes there are many many crafters out there with birthdays in January so maybe being creative is part of being born in January... suspect all those with birthdays in other months might disagree. Thank you for the chance to win some blog candy.
