I don't know about you but I am BUSY! Cookies to make, groceries to buy...a few gifts still to buy!

When thinking about a challenge for today, I remembered a birthday I need a card for and I noticed I didn't have a lot of time so I came up with a quick and simple challenge for you!

My challenge is to make a BIRTHDAY CARD with the following requirements:

1. One Piece of Designer Paper (if you don't have any you can make your own using stamps!)
2. Two Colors of Cardstock Only (not counting 1 neutral)
3. Use Three Punches on Your Card

*Use whatever stamps you like but RIBBON can be your ONLY embellishment...just cause it's my favorite ;)


I hope you like my challenge and I hope it is quick and simple for you and maybe gets you a little ahead on your birthday card making!

Great challenge and I'll definitely be playing today!

ReginaBD 12-23-2008 07:09 AM

Fantastic challenge...especially since I need a couple of birthday cards this week, too. It's like you read my mind! LOL...

LilLuvsStampin 12-23-2008 07:10 AM

Sounds like fun, Jimmi! Hope to play tonight!

lorettal 12-23-2008 07:15 AM

what a wonderful challenge with perfect timing!

lacyquilter 12-23-2008 07:16 AM

Sounds like fun. Somewhere between baking and wrapping, maybe I will find time to stamp. Otherwise, I'm going to be doing some major catching up after Christmas! I haven't stamped a thing yet this week.

kandicejo 12-23-2008 07:34 AM

fun! we've got a bunch of january family bdays too! hopefully i can get to the stamping table today...

Stamps'nCoffee 12-23-2008 07:38 AM

I can always use a few extra B-Day cards...great challenge...thanks!!!!

Cook22 12-23-2008 07:39 AM

Love the sound of this, Jimmi, but with my dad staying my time is extra limited. I like the idea of having to use 3 punches (love my punches) so if I don't get to play along today I'll be back on the 26th! Or maybe even tomorrow, but there's a lot to do tomorrow!

Stampin' Annie 12-23-2008 07:45 AM

Awesome challenge, Jimmi! I think I'll use this formula again to make quick cards.

Here's mine:

I made a card this morning on which there was a comment that it might fit this challenge -- IF Nestabilities die cuts count as punches? Do they?

Oops! NOW I read the thread -- my nesties count. Here's my Birthday Roses.

KY Southern Belle 12-23-2008 08:36 AM

Here's my submission:

Birthday Gift

ReginaBD 12-23-2008 01:43 PM

Here's my birthday card. Sorry, but I realized after the fact that I used an extra embellishment. I'm so sorry! I was just so excited about using the ring of bling on it that I totally spaced the requirements. Care to see my card? http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=87307

laurakj 12-23-2008 01:48 PM

Here's mine. As you can see I can't read ;)


Loree2000 12-23-2008 02:03 PM

Is the CB considered a technique? What about Piercing? Thanks!

homestead46 12-23-2008 02:16 PM

Thanks Jimmi! Here's my birthday card! Have a Merry Christmas!

mybelle101 12-23-2008 02:56 PM

Oooooooh, great challenge, Jimmi!!

PH in VA 12-23-2008 02:57 PM

Hey, Jimmi! I love your challenge idea, but I'm probably not going to be able to do anything with it until next week, I'm afraid. Maybe with a little luck I'll be able to carve out some time tomorrow...

Oh well, it's a good thing there is no time restraint on these holiday challenges! :)

Here's mine and for both HCE04 and Color Challenge 198.
