Happy Friday everyone and THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH for all the Birthday wishes yesterday - they all made my day.  I wound up having some major computer issues, so I wasn't on much since after about 6pm EST, but I received all the good wishes, and thanks again!

Speaking of Birthdays, we are having a BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP over at SEW MANY CARDS this week.   

You are now are AUDREY'S BLOG, hopefully you have arrived from LINDA'S BLOG.  If you haven't done that, please go and start back at the beginning, which is SEW MANY CARDS CHALLENGE BLOG.

You will have until next Friday, Jan. 21 to complete the hop as well as our CHALLENGE should you wish.  Winners will be announced on Jan. 22.  To qualify for the grand prize of Sick Bear image plus a $15 voucher at SEW MANY CARDS SHOP, you must comment on all blogs in the hop and enter our challenge at SEW MANY CHALLENGES using a SEW MANY CARDS image and the theme of birthdays.

There will also be a winner from each blog in the hop to someone who has commented on all the blogs in the hop.  The winners from each blog will get the image used by the DT member of that blog on her card as well as an additional SMC image.  Good luck and have fun!

For my card, I chose Eris the Elephant wearing this cute birthday hat and carrying a gift.  I love Eris and decided to have him look like a traditional elephant (last time I used him, I colored him blue).  I colored the image with Copics, Atyou spicas and decorated with A la mode glitter glue.

All DP is from K and Co., ribbon is from my stash.  Base CS is glittery, textured Bazzill.  Sentiment is SUinks and stamped in SU lavendar lace then cut with nesties.  Image and background also cut with Nesties.  Pearls are from Zva Creative and flower is from K and Co.  Hope you like and have fun on the hop!!

Your next and last stop on the hop is SEW MANY CARDS SHOP.  You will also find this week's FREEBIE there and it will only be available to midnight Jan. 14.
