29 again?? Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the 29 again?? Birthday Blog Hop. You should have arrived from Janet but in case you stumbled upon my blog you can start at the beginning with Deb our fabulous hostess!!! Don't forget to comment on all the stops, you don't want to miss out on this fabulous Grand Prize Package! Prizes include $20.00 in files for Little Scraps of Heaven & also Kristal at {www.gettingcricky.com } is donating a stamp set, Deb will be donating a bunch of crafting items .. And all of our blog participants will also have blog candy along the way! This is my first blog hop also so I am extra excited to share!

My project for the hop is a card featuring Marci from LaLa Land Crafts. Another hobby I enjoy besides paper crafting is cake decorating so I love this stamp! I cut the banner from my Spellbinders and used some Trendy Twine to thread it through. I colored Marci with my Copics and put her on a layered Spellbinder cut. I embossed and distressed the background papers and added some pretty raspberry ribbon.  Great for a Happy Birthday!

  26. Jill, you're card was adorable...just one small problem ...where's the cake to sample???? Loved the design, especially the banner. My best birthday was last year for my 60th. I planned the whole thing at a cooking school and all the guests were able to prepare their own creme brulee and also participate in preparing the meal. Soooo much fun, I'll have to post pictures on my blog.
