I love love love They Draw and Cook. A website featuring illustrated recipes and a delicious assortment of illustration in general? Yes please!

They recently started hosting monthly challenges where they invite a different special guest curator each month to choose a theme and then select a few fave entries to showcase, and I just had to join in the fun!

This month is Birthday Bash- food plus birthday cards, you know I am on it! And curated by Ceci Butler of Design House Greetings, oh you bet I am gonna get an entry or two, or three, in.

I’ve also set this one up as an actual 5×7 card layout and sent it off to my agent, y’know, just in case!

I have one more idea for this challenge I’ve gotta finish up and enter, hint: it’s my favorite birthday meal which has become a tradition around here…. Coming up shortly!

With much love and gratitude as always,
