FM#40 Happy Birthday to You & Me!!!

It's Holly here and I'd like to welcome you to our first challenge of the New Year. I hope the year is starting off great for you so far! Before we get into this week's challenge I'd like to welcome our Guest Designers for January:

Both of these talented ladies are regular players here at the Friday Mashup and we are very excited to be working with them this month. Welcome Ladies! 

January is a packed Birthday month for me... It seems like everyone I know has a Birthday this month, even my Birthday is in January... So, I thought a Birthday themed Mashup would be a great way to get a start on all those Birthday cards I need to make! 

I'm Mash'ing things up this week with some Pastels/Chalks... I think Chalks are a great crafting tool, but they can be a challenge for some.  So, grab your pasteles/chalk or chalk inks and let's get to creating some Birthday cards! There are lots of great resources on the web if you need some help. 

If you don't have any chalks... feel free to grab some Pastel shades of card stock and use those in a fun Birthday project... Pastel colors or Chalks give us such a nice soft look!
