    What a fun challenge! Loved all the cards representing the birthday months. My birthday is April. I’ll have to give it some thought.

    Love all the cards. The theme of this challenge is very unique and different. I am a Taurean born in May. My personal opinion on this theme is that, even though each of us are unque and different (depends on month and sunsign) there is one thing that is common among all (submitted enteries, comments, DT) that is we are all crafters. Thank you for giving us an awesome theme to play along.
