A......happy, happy birthday, and we are here to say...HEY!

Happy Thursday, everybody!! It's a special day, because it's Stamping Bella release day, and it's also Emily's Birthday! We're all celebrating by doing a little Birthday Blog Skip, Hop & Dance...and you're invited! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.


This is the birthday card I created in honor of Em. It's not her actual birthday card...that one is in the mail on its way to Canada! I used Cakeabella, Magical Day sentiment, and some aqua ribbon that looks like it's out of stock at the moment. Keep your eye out for it...it's my favorite!

So....what a birthday would be complete without presents? To spice things up a little, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $40 Gift Voucher to Stamping Bella!!! The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! We will announce the winner on Monday in the Splitcoast forum. MWAH!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Amybella at Prairie Paper & Ink. Have a great day!
