If you've hopped over from Created By Missie, then you are in the right place. If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and would like to join our SweetSassyDiva Birthday Blog hop and FUN then, please start at the beginning with Bobbi Jo's blog http://sweetsassydiva.com because...starting at the start is always SMART! :)

We have a WONDERFUL Grand Prize for one lucky hopper that is donated by Bobbi Jo!

One random winner will be chosen on Wednesday, March 14th, giving you plenty of time to finish the hop.

For my project today, I have created a birthday card for my son to give to a little girl in his Preschool class, who is having a birthday party today!

For the shape of my card, I used an image from the Paper Trimmings cartridge cut at 6". I welded two of the background images together to create the card, then added the full layered image over top.

The bunny with the balloon and the "It's Your Birthday" images are from Just a Note, one of the cartridges that came built into my Anniversary edition Expression 2 machine. The bunny was cut at 3.5" and the sentiment at 1.75".


Supplies used:
Patterned Paper - We R Memory Keepers - Funfetti
Cardstock - American Crafts, Bazzill, CTMH
Glossy Accents
Stickles - Icicle, Cotton Candy, Orange Peel
Baker's Twine - The Twinery
Ink - CTMH - Hollyhock, Black

Hope you like it!

Guess what?!?! I also have a giveaway for one lucky winner!

To win this Even More Punnylicious stamp set by My Pink Stamper, please leave a comment on this post and I will choose a winner Wednesday morning! I would also love it if you became a follower of my blog, although that is not necessary to win! No hard feelings here :-)

The fun doesn't end here though so be sure to hop on over to Around the Block with Scrapalette! I can't wait to see what she's created for this hop - she's fabulous!
