Happy Birthday Cute Card Thursday!

I cannot believe it!  It has been 3 years since we launched 
We still have a good number of our original Design Team with us too which shows just how much fun it has been!  Our aim was to have a challenge that was fun for everyone and have a 'no strict rules policy', I think we have achieved that!
Can you believe that in the beginning there wasn't all this sponsoring of challenges going on and some members of our Design Team donated the first few prizes until we got around to asking companies to sponsor us? 
 There weren't so many challenges around back then nor were there the choice of stamps, so funny to think of now with the abundance of both!  We sometimes had to tell each other which stamp we were using in case someone else was using it too!  We did have times when we used the same one, it was inevitable.  I can't remember the last time that happened!
Anyway, enough reminiscing, onto my card!
Another book card, this one for my other son.  
I used the fantastic sketch over at 
designed by super talented Rach!
The cute stamp is Lily of the Valley 'Big Present'
This week we are sponsored by one of my favourite stores

It has the obligatory pocket for cash and a roll of sweeties!
I am loving these new stamps, the pennant and cupcake are from a set by Hampton Art from their cling range.  
The stars are punched out with my Martha Stewart punch.

My custom made signature stamp is from Whimsy Stamps.
Please pop over and see the rest of the Design Team's beautiful birthday creations!
Thanks so much for dropping by, have a fabulous day!
