SURPRISE!! Happy Birthday Korin!

** If you're here for my Tuesday Morning Sketches post, please come back tomorrow.  Thank you.  **

Good Morning!  Welcome to the surprise Birthday Party Blog Hop for Korin!!  If you came by for a visit and you want to join in the fun blog hop, start at the Sweet n Sassy Blog and enjoy the birthday fun.  Don't forget that if you spend $33 in the SNSS store, you will get a FREE stamp set.  See my Friday's post for the picture of the adorable set.

And now for my birthday card to Korin....


Dear Korin....  I just want to thank you for having given me this opportunity to design with your fabulous stamps!  I wish you the most amazing birthday ever, may God continue to bless you with your family, friends and other loved ones and may you also have your wishes come true.  Sending you hugs!

I did use a great sketch from JUGS to inspire this card.  I did have to flip the sketch a little to make it work with my image, but I am pleased with how it turned out.  I hope you like it, too.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Kraft
Paper:  Latte Matstack (DCWV)
Stamps/Ink:  Springtime Cocoa (SNSS), Wishing You (TAC), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
