:: A Birthday Sundaes Goodbye and challenge! ::

Hello Birthday Sundaes fans!

This week is an extremely sad Birthday Sundaes challenge for me
as today will be the last challenge!

First, I'd like to thank Kristie for taking a chance of having me on the DT --
it has been a truly wonderful experience!  I wish you the best!

I'd also like to thank my fellow DT members --
Amber, Amy, Jo, Kimberly, Maribel, Sue, Tara...
it has been an absolute blast the last 8 months working together
You ladies are the best and incredibly talented!  I will miss working with each of you, but hope our paths will cross another DT again or some other crafty venture one day!

And last but not least.... a HUGE THANK YOU to all of the Birthday Sundaes followers who have participated in our challenges!  Your comments are inspiring and I can not thank you all enough for the constant inspiration through your words and creations -- the Birthday Sundaes challenge have the best and loyal followers!

On a personal level, I will be MIA from my blog for the next two
(possibly three) weeks, as I have ended up getting a promotion at work and will need to focus on that for the moment, but I promise to return with some more fun card creations
as soon as I can!

So, let's get on with this week's final challenge!

Create a birthday card (with sentiment) using NUMBERS!
Our sponsor this week is Birthday Sundaes founder and owner, Kristie Wilson!
She is offering a fabulous stamp set from Some Odd Girl, "Birthday Mae"!

For this week's card, I wanted to use one of my favourite card folds that we used in a previous Birthday Sundaes challenge.

So help us out and celebrate Birthday Sundaes first birthday
and final challenge with a bang!

I can't wait to see all of your wonderful creations!
