Hello again!  It's time for the second group post for the January countdown!  We're still celebrating!  Birthdays, birthdays and more birthdays!  Today the team is featuring two sets -- 2011 Birthday Tags and Big Birthday Wishes!  I love, love, love these two new sets.  You can never have enough birthday stamps and goodies, can you? 

Let's get to the projects.  Nichole challenged each of us to create a birthday card and tag for a specific recipient.  I chose to create an ensemble for a sweet little girl's first birthday.


The tag I used from the new 2011 Birthday Tags set is a circular tag that reads "May all your birthday dreams and wishes come true".  I combined it with the moon and star border from Night, Night Moon and the clouds from Up, Up and Away to create a dreamy 1st birthday set.


I love all of the sentiments from Big Birthday Wishes and how they work with the new jumbo number dies!  The possibilities are endless!

I'm also loving the new Limitless Layers 2 1/2" Circle collection...combine them with the 1 3/4" collection and you can layer 'til your heart's content!
