AAA Card Challenge #39 - It's a hop!


We are celebrating AAA Card Challenge's 1st birthday!  I can't believe how fast years go with this hobby. Shoot, with life~ :)

What better way to celebrate then using Stamps of Life Happy Birthday Step Up.  Really is an easy way [all the dies are included] to make a POW birthday card.  I also used the SOL Happy Collections Paper Pad - love the fun dots.

Because one of our sponsors is Simon Says [!], I also wanted to make a card using their fun stuff!

I use Falling Backgrounds, Pawprints, Holiday Labels and With Sympathy die!

Happy Birthday to AAA Challenges..and yes, time does zip by! Your birthday card: nothing short of 'celebration' in colours and design! And your pet-sympathy card is both beautiful and heart-warming. As a former *mom* to fur-babies, I know how spirit-lifting such a card would be! My wish for AAA challenges: May birthday #1 be followed by many, many more...love the themes and, especially, the DT inspiration!
