Jillian's Birthday Blog Hop - Day 1

Welcome to Jillian's Birthday Blog Hop!

We are so glad you are here! Our friend, Jillian, is celebrating her 12th birthday on the 14th and we're helping her get her "par-tay" on by putting on this little hop and showing the projects we have made in her honor.  The hop starts today and goes through the 13th and we'll have a new project to share with you each of the four days.  If you have arrived here by way of Deanne's Creative Juice, you're headed in the right direction.  If you are just stopping by to visit or have happened here by chance, you might want to start at Deanne's blog so you can hop along with us.  The list should be posted at each stop in case you get lost.

Here's my first project; a card featuring an adorable digi stamp from Mo Manning.  If you're not familiar with Mo's work, you can see it here.  This one is called "Penelope's Party Wagon".  There are lots of great artists out there who create digi stamps for us to use on our projects and out of all of them, Mo is my favorite right now.  If you look through my blog, you'll see several of her images.

So without further delay, here she is.  Jillian, I hope you like my card.  Have a super-duper birthday weekend and I hope all of your wishes come true.  You rock!

So there you have it.  Thanks for dropping by today.  I hope you'll come back tomorrow to see my next project.  I'll have a small parcel of blog candy for one lucky hopper.  To be entered into my drawing, all you need to do is become a follower if you aren't already and leave a comment with a way for me to contact you.  On the 14th, I will use Random. org to select one winner from all of the comments from the four days (combined).  Sorry but due to the cost of overseas shipping, I'm going to have to limit shipping to the US and Canada.  Now, hop along to My Favorite Blog to see another fabulous birthday project.

Here is the blog list!

Jillian has a hop going on over at her Blog! Go over and see what's going on there. Tell her that you came from Deanne's Blog Hop and give her some birthday love.  And take a look at all of her wonderful stamps sets while you're there.  They are awesome!

  13. Wow! That is a fantastic card! I love how much attention and detail you put on the inside. I still haven't perfected that art yet. The inside is just as important as the outside and I need to remember that so thank you so much for the inspiration! I'm a new follower and thanks for the chance to win some candy! Be sure to come over to my blog (if you haven't already) to be entered for my candy and my 500 follower giveaway!
