We have a NEW CHALLENGE today at THERE'S MAGIC IN THE AIR WITH PAPER CUPCAKES this week and our theme was chosen by DT member Sony and it is

BIRTHDAY PLUS 3's a charm - 3 ribbons - can be 3 of the same, 3 different, use ribbon in 3 different ways, 3 different colors, BUT NO WHITE ribbon.  Can't wait to see your creations.  Please have your entries linked by Sunday, Sept. 4 at THERE'S MAGIC IN THE AIR WITH PAPER CUPCAKES

Although we would LOVE to see an image from PAPER CUPCAKES, it is not necessary to use one for our challenge.  However, entries using an image from PAPER CUPCAKES will be entered 2X in our drawing for the winner.

I used the image "Birthday Stack" from PAPER CUPCAKES for my creation this week.  I paper pieced this cute hippo with My Mind's Eye papers, colored the rest with Copics and then added Stickles for the bunny's tale and the hippo's top of b-day hat.  Background paper is K and Co., SU card stock used, all shapes cut with Nesties.  Ribbons are Offray (green) and other 2 from my stash.  Flowers from K and Co.  I hope you like it and will come play along:)

Additional challenges :

POLKA DOODLE - spots and dots
DAISY DOODLES - anything goes
FOREVER FRIENDS - 3D and an animal
LIA STAMPZ - birthday
PAPER CREATIONS INK - show us flowers
THE PINK ELEPHANT - paper piecing
