Default MAR12VSNF ~ Spring Is For The Chicks ~ Saturday, March 10th ~ 1 PM EST

Title: Spring is for the Chicks!
Hostess: Plain Jane (Jane)
Keyword: MAR12VSNF
Day/Date: Saturday, March 10th
Time: 1:00 PM EST

Spring always makes me think of buds and flowers, new leaves, and fuzzy baby chicks! In my family, we also have a bunch of spring birthday chicks (the girly kind, LOL), so I wanted to honor all the spring “peeps,” young and old!!!

Here’s my challenge for you:

Build a card for your favorite spring birthday girl! Use pastels, floral patterns, lace, flowers, bling...all the pretty, girly things you want...in fact, the more fussy and frilly it is, THE BETTER! Pull out all the stops and celebrate the chicks in style!!!

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE!!!


UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday, March 12th.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword...MAR12VSNF...when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure it’s seen.


New to VSN? Learn more here...VSN Guidelines and Tips and here...What I Have Learned from VSN...and you can ask for help here...New to VSN? Ask anything here!

Need help uploading a card or posting a link to this thread? Just ask!

OKay, I had to check the calandar, then remembered, my Mom's birthday is the 27th of April. Have two others in April, but guess Mom would definitely qualify for favorite! And she would qualify for fussy, lacey card too!
So will try to come up with something!
Thank you for the Chick challenge! I was afraid I was going to have to have a chicken!

Well, after I came up with the idea, I realized I DON'T DO FUSSY-GIRLY either. So challenged myself, too!

It's more of a guideline than a requirement....no cringing required for this!

I used brown on my card, but think of it as "milk chocolate" (pastel-ish)rather than dark chocolate! Here is my card:

Girly, without a whole lot of fuss. Wish you could see the glitter, though--really makes it.

Default Girly Happy Birthday

Here's my card. I made it girly by using PINK, tying a bow and using a jewel on the cupcake. Sorry the pic is kinda bad, I used my cell phone camera.
