QFTD145 {birthday twist}
Happy Birthday to... Happy Birthday to... Happy birthday dear YOU! Happy Birthday to you.
This week I decided to do something a bit different. It's a busy time of year and I didn't know how many people would have time to participate, so this week's Queen challenge is a bit different.

This week's Queen is kind of random and we will be celebrating a lot of different people. It has a fun twist.

So to figure out who the Queen is you find the Queen of 2012 who was closest to your birthday. For example. My birthday is October 16th and Queen Claudia was celebrated on October 18th, 2012, so she'd be my Queen for this week. Hope that makes sense.

Here's a list of 2012 Queens so you can find the one that corresponds closest to your birthday...

You can find direct links to each week's thread on this Master List.

Remember to put QFTD145 in the card you make for the gallery this week. You can put a little write up about when your birthday is and the Queen you are celebrating. And if you're CASEing a Queen's card try to write them a little note and comment!
Hope you have fun with this!

--{ QFTD145 GALLERY }--

I hope we can feel like we are celebrating everyone's birthdays from this year and make everybody feel special!

TrishG 12-27-2012 07:43 AM

I am away on holidays and didn't bring my supplies with me or make a card ahead of time. I'll try to catch up later. I'm going to go to my Queen's gallery and make some comments and pick out a card to CASE.

Meanwhile, hope you all have a great end of the year and safe and happy new year!

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! (and me too!)

I'm posting really early because I figured I had some time now and didn't know what I'm doing later today, so I should do it while I can!

Hope to see you all back in the New Year for more Queens to celebrate!

YLM 12-27-2012 10:13 AM

thanks for the fun Here's mine

TrishG 12-27-2012 10:38 AM

So just to clarify...
This list is not when those people have their birthday. It's just a list of the Queens from each week in 2012, from when they were chosen Queen.

So... when YOUR birthday is, you find the date on the list and it will list the Queen who was celebrated in 2012. That's the Queen you get to celebrate this week!

LilLuvsStampin 12-27-2012 11:58 AM

What a fun idea, Trish!

Crafty Julia 12-27-2012 01:08 PM

QFTD145 Girl Time for Lydia
Yippee! My birthday Queen is Lydia, also known to us all as Understandblue. She does such nice cards, and is so helpful! I was inspired by her card - Welcome to Your Next Stamp - with its blue and pink giraffes and green background. I used SU's Seeds of Friendship for my sentiment, and SU's Girlfriends for my dc lacy circle image- here's Girl Time for Lydia

nancy littrell 12-27-2012 01:13 PM

Sounds like fun Trish. I understand your instruc. perfectly. Have a wonderful Holiday and Happy New Year....But, esp. thanks for hosting this fun and inspiring challenge :-)

Clownmom 12-27-2012 03:15 PM

What a fun challenge -- a chance to revisit someone's gallery for inspiration. My queen is Peggy (pegmac71), someone whom I have actually met! Here's my card in her honor:

Speedy the Cat Wants OUT!

Crafty Julia 12-27-2012 03:53 PM

QFTD145 Vintage Jan. 1 for Lydia
I wanted to create one more card for Lydia- I was inspired by her F4A106 Blue Roses with its lovely blues and vintage theme. I used Graphic 45's Place In Time dp for my central image, surrounded by frames. Here's Vintage Jan. 1 for Lydia

bensarmom 12-27-2012 04:27 PM

What a fun challenge. Here's my card .

Kathleen Lammie 12-27-2012 06:21 PM

Great idea Trish! Just had my birthday, and it will be a pleasure to use Sue28's gallery to find inspiration again!

jandjccc 12-27-2012 06:58 PM

Fantastic idea Trish. I love it.
Here is mine for Loll Thompson, whose birthday is close to mine.

sue28 12-27-2012 07:27 PM

What a fun idea for this week's challenge, Trish - Holly (Toy) is nearest to my birthday and I will enjoy looking through her gallery and selecting a card to CASE in the next day or so.

hobbydujour 12-27-2012 07:33 PM

Clever idea for the QFTD challenge at the year's end, Trish. Kathleen Lammie is closest to mine. My card also combines the F4A challenge for today.


stamp300 12-27-2012 07:48 PM

How perfect & a great idea. Mine will be JoJot (Joanne) as QFTD131 which is my exact birthday Sept 20. Time to play.

cullenwr 12-27-2012 08:27 PM

What a fun twist for the last challenge of the year! Charlene (LilLuvsStampin) happened to be queen exactly on the date of my birthday and it's an honor to call her queen again! MY CARD

fionna51 12-28-2012 02:01 AM

Oooh, Charlene (LilLuvsStampin) is my queen too! I'm off to her wonderful gallery to choose something to CASE...

Thanks Trish...fun idea!

Vicky Gould 12-28-2012 06:09 AM

yellowrose46 12-28-2012 07:13 AM

This just had to happen didn't it? My birthday is July 16 and I was queen on July 19 :) However, I will check Sophie La Fontaine's gallery as she was queen on July 12.

LilLuvsStampin 12-28-2012 07:50 AM

The uber talented Lisa Lara is my Queen this week. She was queen on Jan 19 and my BD is Jan 22. Here's my Thank Ewe

coffeestamper 12-28-2012 08:00 AM

coffeestamper 12-28-2012 08:42 AM

My birthday is Feb. 24th so I browsed Pat's gallery (kokirose) for inspiration and followed the sketch and basic elements from Pat's sweet birdhouse card.

etsdas 12-29-2012 03:54 AM

This is a fun idea. I might also try to catch up on a couple of others that I was not able to honor. We have been on the road for over a week so there are other things (like unpacking and loads of laundry) that unfortunately will take priority...
I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas.

BarbieP 12-29-2012 06:15 AM

Trish, this was a terrific idea. Here is my card:
