For you - FFFC #146 'Birthdays'

Hello.  Happy Friday!

There's a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  This theme for this fortnight challenge is 'Birthdays' and is being hosted by the lovely Judy.  We have two sponsors for this challenge:  Sherri Baldy Designs and Sweet Lilac.  To get complete details on the challenge, the prize being offered and how you can join in the fun, visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog.  Check out also the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.

This is really an easel card...

A close-up of the sweet image being featured.

The image is a Sugar Nellie image called 'Best Day Ever.'
