lawnscaping challenge - it's our birthday!

and we'll craft if we want to!! :) 
it's so exciting!! it's a brand new year!! it's a brand new challenge and it's a brand new birthday for the lawnscaping challenge blog!! :)
insert balloons, streamers and kazoo's here!! :)

in the spirit of all of this celebratory fun, the challenge this time is to create a birthday themed project!!

i used lots of different lawn fawn stamps for my card, and i love how it turned out! :)

i created a little snapshot of a puppy's birthday party! lol! 
this card was made for a friend! and see that cute as can be boxer? (from the critters at the dog park stamp set) i made it look just like her dog by paper piecing!! it was so fun!! usually i think i have to color the animals to get them to look just right, but in this case, the paper piecing worked perfectly! i love how she turned out!! 

i also fussy cut and paper pieced the rest of the images too! the balloons (from admit one) were made shiny with some glossy accents! the sentiment is from happy everything (a PERFECT sentiment set for year round usage!) stamped onto a speech bubble from a birdie told me!

i LOOOVE that slice of cake in the dog bowl! it's from the year three stamp set! the CUTEST mini set ever! lol! :)

so that's it! hope it made you smile! and most of all, i hope it made you want to join in on the fun with this challenge!!
