Happy Birthday Deedee Blog Hop!

SURPRISE Deedee!!

Good Morning everyone!!  If you're here because this is a favorite Friday stop for Stamp Fairy, please scroll down, but you're more than welcome to join us in wishing Deedee of Deedee's Digis a very happy birthday.

My personal message to you, sweetie.... My birthday wishes for you are... health, happiness, prosperity, devotion, love and friendship.  May these blessings be in abundance for you.  I am so thankful that you are my friend.  Happy Birthday!!


 I created this card to celebrate Deedee's birthday with her sweet set called Happy Bird-day. This sweet set features the sweet bird and cupcake as a single image, but I cut them apart and it also has 3 very sweet sentiments.  I did make this a fun, festive card by making a shaker card.  I did put too many micro-beads, but still it shake, shake, shakes.



Here's a close up to see all the little beads and the pretty glitter paper.  I hope you like it.
Thank you so much for stopping to by to celebrate Deedee.  Your next stop on the hop is Kelly's blog.  Now, if you've visited and commented each blog, your last stop is the Crafting with Deedee's Digis blog.  Leave a comment there and you have a chance to win a $20 gift certificate!!  Have fun!!

Melissa, this is just so SWEET! How fun to separate the birdie and cupcake, and the beads to make it a shaker card are truly inspired. I have to tell you, it's been hard getting through this hop because I am just so incredibly touched that all of you would do this it's almost overwhelming, and then I read your birthday wishes to me, and well, let's say it's a good thing I keep a box of Kleenex on my desk -- LOL! Thank you for being such a wonderful friend, and for helping to make my day special! Love, Deedee
