Birthday Bash Challenge!

I am super excited you could join me today.  For those of you who follow my blog regularly you have probably noted that I have been quiet over the past few weeks.  Not to worry because I am getting my paper crafting year in order.  I am thrilled to announce that you will be seeing a lot more of my designs with Papertrey Ink in 2010.  And this month is no exception.  So what is to come in 2010 you say?  ...a little of this and that, some bits and pieces and some razzle dazzle.  Ok, think seasonal and all occasion celebrations, simple designs, perhaps 3 of a kind?  All I can say is February is a trend setting month for my designs so make sure to tune in here on February 10th when you get your first reveal and some triple action!

If you have stopped by my blog first today let me encourage you to visit Nichole's blog for the fabulous PTI 3rd Anniversary celebration.  I am so excited to invite you to partake in today's birthday bash challenge.

Each member of the 2010 Papertrey Stamp Designer Team has created a birthday image for you to download, print and utilize as an embellishment for a handmade birthday card, wishing Papertrey a happy birthday.  After creating your project, upload a photo of it to your blog or online gallery, then proceed to Nichole's blog and link your photo within the Mister Linky box provided.  You can enter one project to Nichole's blog and link your photo within the Mister Linky box provided.  You can enter one project for EACH designer's graphic, so you can have up to NINE entries total, meaning nine chances to win!

Don't delay, because you only have until Wednesday February 3rd at 7am EST to enter this contest!! An amazing prize package including SEVEN of the best selling stamp sets (a $159 value) from Papertrey's designers is up for grabs, so you want to be sure to add your project to the list before the deadline arrives.  The randomly selected winner will be announced by noon the same day on the February Release Winners page.  Have fun and good luck.

I didn't have any problem downloading, it was just quite a bit larger and I couldn't resize. I think I'll download Niki's version and see how that work.
