It's A Holiday,...

... well, sort of! ;)


This is the 28th of January. The 28th of EVERY month is the day that the Calendar Girls blog group has a little challenge. I am "Miss January" (Brrr!) which means I got to choose the theme for this month.

Here it is:

If you’ve ever been any of the swap threads that I participate in, you know that I like holidays, normal ones, weird one, funny ones. EVERY day is worth a celebration. So, for this month’s Calendar Girl challenge, I want you to select a holiday that is CLOSE TO your own birthday and make a card for that holiday.


I was born in October, so I needed to find a holiday from October - I chose an October 18th holiday (which happens to be my parents' anniversary, BTW)...

National Chocolate Cupcake Day



Here's the card I made:





You can find the links to the other Calendar Girl Blogs in my left side bar, or scroll down to the end of this blog post and I'll have links to them.



This card is also for the new {PIN}Spirational Challenge.
