Craft Your Days Away turns 1!!!!!

It's our 1st birthday at Craft Your Days Away and we are celebrating!!!!!!

Look at all the goodies that you can win!!!!!

And Little Musings too!!!!!!!

So put on your party hat and join in our challenge. It is an easy one. Birthdays!

For my card, I used one of Heart Song Designs images. I grew up in Michigan and the state flower is apple blossom and the state bird is a robin. This image took me back to my childhood, where this was a common site. Since I have lived in Oklahoma, I have seen only 1 robin and I just stared at. It looked so out of place.
For my card, I used DP from DCWV Rustic pad. The gold foil is from Target's dollar spot. The frame is a Heartfelt Creations Spellbinders. The ribbon I believe is also from Target's dollar spot.
The image is colored with Copic's and can you believe I didn't use any glitter! With the foil frame and glitter in the DP, I didn't feel that it needed any thing else, plus the bird and apple blossom are beautiful the way God intended them to be.

Join us at Craft Your Days Away and help us celebrate our 1st birthday!!!!!
