"I long to accomplish a great and noble task,
but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

Dueling Darlings January Challenge

Happy New Year!

The card on my blog today is for the Dueling Darlings January Challenge.

Judy and I were the hostesses and chose a birthday theme.

The kit for the Dazzlers included:

DP - American Crafts, Confetti - Banana Cream Brady and Peanut Butter Benny.
Images - Whippersnappers "Little Girl and Dotted Present" and Stampin Up! "Birthday Whimsey" (cake)
Sentiment - A Muse "Itty Bitty Birthday"

Images and sentiment stamped in Memento Ink black and cocoa

Buttons - SU!
Ribbons - SU! Rose, crushed curry, orange, bermuda bay

We also asked the Darlings to post a favorite birthday memory.

I have a memory, kind of funny... My friends planned a surprise birthday party for me for my thirtieth birthday.  I ended up going home from work that day sick. Didn't want to get out of bed at all that evening.  The cat had to be let out of the bag that I was going to ruin the surprise party if I didn't show up.  I did show up and pretended like I didn't know a thing.

And here is my card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please see my sidebar and check out all the Dueling Darlings blogs for their creations.
