Friends of SNSS Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Hi again!  Thanks for coming back for the blog hop which kinda wraps up all the fun and festivities that have been going on all month to celebrate Sweet n Sassy Stamps' 5th birthday.

This is a HUGE hop, 37 bloggers and friends of Sweet n Sassy.  Not only will you have so much eye candy to feast upon, but there's prizes....


~There will be 4 random participants from whom I will choose 1 commenter to receive a $15 store credit.
~To be included in the drawings, comments must be left by midnight EST Friday, November 30th.
~The winners will be announced on the SNSS Blog on December 1st at 8am EST

So before I share my card I, first of all, want to wish Korin and Dan a very happy birthday.  I have been blessed to have been on both the Sweet n Sassy Diva and The Sweet Stop design teams.  It was a dream come true for me.  As most of you know, Korin knows no stranger and she loves all those that come into her periphery with her sweet spirit.  She's always there to lend an encouraging word or to share one of her great designs.  I'm the proud owner of a couple pieces of her works or art.  They are not merely cards.


So this is the card that I created using a great sketch from MFT and the inspiration of Silke Ledlow.  She does so well with all white... I tried with cream and just a hint of brown.  No matter what I did, I couldn't get the photo to come out right.  It's much prettier in person - I swear.

Enjoy the hop!  Happy birthday Korin, Dan & Sweet n Sassy Stamps.  I look forward to doing this again for your 10th birthday.

Very pretty.

I think your card turned out great, so if it's better in person it would knock my socks off... Oh wait! I'm not wearing socks because I'm home sick today. Yeah perfect timing for this hop! That sentiment reminded me of a blog I was just reading that presented a recipe for natural flea repellant that used dandelions.
