Challenge 266 - Birthdays

Welcome to another new challenge here at Fab and Funky.

 It's Sharon here and I have the honour of hosting this week's challenge

Our theme this week is


 It so happens that it is my birthday this month so I thought it would be a great idea to theme our challenge around that very subject. We want to see anything themed around a birthday…it can be cards or anything else that takes your fancy, just so long as you have fun!

We are being sponsored this week by the wonderful 'Inspired by Stamping'.

Here's a little bit about them.

Hello! My name is Joanna Munster, owner/designer/illustrator of Inspired by Stamping. I started crafting 12 1/2 years ago when I started capturing my daughter’s special moments with scrap booking. I quickly fell in love with all things crafty including cross stitch, crocheting, knitting, drawing, jewellery making but my love has always been towards the paper crafty industry. It is a place where I can lose myself in creating for hours. 
Three years ago, my hubby, myself and our three children moved from the United States to Australia. While waiting for my working visa, I started drawing and paper crafting full time with my blog. One of my dear friends suggested that I make a stamp set with one of my drawings and this is where Inspired by Stamping started.
We love every moment of working in this industry from the beautiful women and men that we meet daily, to the amazing and creative designs that we see when a friend uses an Inspiredy Stamping set. 
You as our customer will ALWAYS be our top priority! If you have any questions or if something is not right, please let us know. We will get back to you ASAP! Our email is

Inspired by Stamping are kindly offering a $20 voucher to spend in store for the lucky winner.

So, on to this week's challenge.

To get your creative juices flowing, here is some lovely inspiration from the design team.






I hope you will come and join in the fun this week, as we love to visit your blogs to see what you have created. Don't forget to link back to the Fab n Funky blog to be eligible for this week's prize.
