LSC112 - Wild About Birthdays
Well, since Emily celebrated her birthday with her favorite colors this week, I thought I would celebrate my birthday, too! :mrgreen: (Please don't feel you have to send me a card, though. Seriously. ;) )

If you have been to my gallery, you have probably guessed that I like cutesy animal and creature cards. So, this week, we are making birthday cards with animals, bugs, and/or creepy crawly creatures.

So, what's the catch?

Well... This is the limited supply challenge! But instead of limiting supplies this week, I'm limiting the time. After all, if you're like me, you never have that birthday card made until the last minute.

You have only 45 minutes to make your card.... Just like in VSN. :D

My Sample

Keyword: LSC112
Theme: birthdy cards with animals, bugs, or creatures
Limit: 45 minutes or less

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
Your done!

Happy Birthday BTW.

Karen Stamps! 04-19-2007 09:01 PM

Happy Birthday! 45 minutes - should be fun. I don't think it will be tonight though, but I should be able to do it tomorrow a.m. during naptime (baby's not mine!).

Do butterflies count as bugs?

I'll be on a field trip with my students, tomorrow. Help each other out with any questions. Can't wait to see your creations when I get home. :D

lacyquilter 04-19-2007 09:12 PM

Well, I'm not big on cutesy, but I do have butterflies. Will have to see what I can come up with.

Twinshappy 04-19-2007 09:13 PM

Jen I already mailed your card on Monday. :) Here is mine for the challenge:


hskelly 04-19-2007 09:31 PM

Sounds fun- I'll do mine tomorrow. Happy Birthday Jen!

Cammie 04-19-2007 09:34 PM

Wowzer...up already! Cool beans!

I just now finished my card from today and uploaded it so I think this one will have to wait....Looks like fun though. Thanks, Jen!:)

Twinshappy 04-19-2007 09:39 PM

Here is my crabby birthday:


bambi64 04-19-2007 09:40 PM

Happy Birthday, Jen.

Working on a cutesy animal card right now. Can our 45 mins be broken up into 15 min intervels? as I have been working on it off and on! lol Darn baby, just go to sleep so I can stamp! ;)

msdaiquiri 04-19-2007 09:48 PM

here's mine...I was assembling it when I saw the challenge...perfect!


etsdas 04-19-2007 09:50 PM

I did the card in the time limit - uploading is taking a bit more time!!
This example uses a couple of favorites - Cuttlebug and Fluffles.
This also gave me a chance to use my new WalMart ribbon - $.25/spool!


And, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Jen. Thanks for all the challenges. You amaze me - teaching and still keeping up with so much here on SCS.

diana11460 04-19-2007 09:59 PM

Woo Hoo!! Happy Birthday, Jen!! Hope I get a chance to play - love the whole VSN thing!!!

allee's 04-19-2007 10:10 PM

Since we only had 45 minutes, I had to fall back on an old favorite - oval punch mice.

Have a mice birthday!

toknighton 04-19-2007 10:18 PM

since I still have not done a card for today's challenge, I will combine with tomorrow's. Thanks, Jen! And Happy Birthday to you too :)

toknighton 04-19-2007 10:26 PM

so would baby cards work for birthdays...babies have to have a bday, right? I just got Bundle of Joy today and really need an excuse to ink that rubbah!

lacyquilter 04-19-2007 10:53 PM

Here's my birthday butterfly.

StampOwl 04-19-2007 11:28 PM

rainy 04-20-2007 01:08 AM

Great challenge, Jen, and Happy Birthday! You have the same birthday as my sister. :-D Wish I could have had a wee bit more time to add some shadows and more sponging but then I guess it wouldn't have been a challenge. :rolleyes:
Here's my Feathered Wishes:
