Thank you once again for all the wonderful entries. After much deliberating and cogitating I'm happy to finally be able to announce the winners as picked by myself and MYVxKIRITO. Entires were judged on a number of points but the one that felt most important was their ability to make me smile. The two winning entries were decided unanimously for their ability to do just that. And so, without further ado, the winners:
Because both MYVxKIRITO and I were immediately drawn to that adorable, adorable face ♥
Because this is just the cutest animation ♥
Congratulations, guys! And thank you so for these happy, joyous things.
Additionally, the remaining participants will all receive 20 points each. It's a small sum but I think everyone who took part deserves a little something. Thank you all so much for taking the time to celebrate with me!
[UPDATE] There's roughly 7 hours left to enter though I shall be asleep for about another six after that so feel free to sneak your entries in then too! Thank you to everyone who has entered so far, your pieces have been wonderful ♥
Hello! As you may be aware I normally hold some kind of contest or event for my birthday but this last week has been so busy I haven't got round to setting anything up. This is why I'm having a small, speedy 48-ish hour mini birthday contest instead!
The rules are very simple. All you have to do is create some kind of art with the theme birthday. I'm going to let your imaginations run wild with this. Any kind of art will be accepted (whether it be illustrations, knitting, literature, graphics, journal skins, anything). The content of your piece may be anything you like as long as there's some link to the theme of 'birthday'. So perhaps you want to write a story about your OC's birthday, draw a picture of the Avengers celebrating Steve's birthday, design a journal featuring bunting and cakes, or even make a birthday card for a friend. Guys, do absolutely anything.
Deadline: 23:59 (GMT) Sat 22nd March
(Though there's always a little bit of leeway here)
Because this is a speedy quick contest, and because my pockets are pretty empty, the prizes are only small but I hope you'll enjoy them nonetheless.
1 month premium membership

Birthday Cake KissesGâteau D'anniversaire
Crawling out of bed at five in the morning was a harsher task than Sakura had speculated. She wasn’t a morning person. However, the inspirational idea that had struck her the night before had encouraged her to get an early start out of the day. But this path of thinking diminished into thin air the moment her message sparrow started pecking at her window. All she could do was sigh, stretch, throw on clothing, and hope to the Goddesses that her bra was under her sweater and her skirt was over her underwear. By the time Sakura had made it down the stairs, she had a new respect for people with low-blood pressure.
Meaning, a newfound respect for the Astonetian Prince who could wake up at any time and make it through the day without even a drop of caffeine in his system.
Combing her hands through her red hair, Sakura glanced at the calendar stuck to the fridge. Half-lidded eyes stared at the current date. March 2
Birthday Wishes.Birthday wishes and a eaten cake
And many moons
And wanting youth -
Drunk on life and all it’s freedoms.
Revel in age and all it’s glory,
Unless the grand and heavy hand
Retires your story.
for the breaths you take today -
Are more than the sum of days before
You cease to exist.
Closing time, it’s a lonely state
Left alone, with the smoke rising
Candles gone, they leave you crying
You look up straight asking if you’re bent
Your last breath, birthday wishes spent
