Jillian's Birthday Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to Jillian's Birthday Blog Hop!

Welcome back for Day 2 of our 4 day blog hop in honor of our friend, Jillian's, 12th birthday which takes place on the 14th. If you were here yesterday, you no doubt were inspired by all of the awesome birthday projects you saw.  Well, we have all new ones to show you today! If this is your first time hopping with us, then you may want to go back and see what everyone posted yesterday and to find out more about the birthday girl herself. She is one very talented and ambitious young lady to be sure. And if you're not familiar with her stamps, you owe it to yourself to check them out on her website.

If you have arrived here by way of Deanne's Creative Juice, you're headed in the right direction.  If you're 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.  There might be blog candy at some of the stops and you wouldn't want to miss anything.  The blog list should be posted at each stop in case you get lost.

Please read the instructions below the photos to find out how to vote for your favorite project during the hop.  The creator of the project that receives the most votes will win a Cricut Imagine cartridge from Deanne!

Today, I have a furry friend to share with you and to help Jillian celebrate her special day. This little guy was sent to me by one of my sweet crafty friends, Tracy of Tracy's Stamping Corner, as part of a group of wonderful stamped images. Thanks again, Tracy!  I colored him up with my Copic markers and put him on the front of this card. I think he looks so adorable with his birthday cupcake and balloon.  I'm not sure who the stamp artist is for this one.

Card base and aqua mats are from Core'dinations. The yellow paper with stars is from the DCWV All About Boys stack and the polka dot glitter paper comes from My Mind's Eye Home Glitter Book. Both stamps are from a Fiskars clear stamp set called Make A Wish Quotes. The cute paper flowers are from K and Company. and the corner punch used on the inside mat is by Martha Stewart Crafts.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing my card and I hope Jillian likes it.

Deanne has made things interesting by offering up a bit of blog candy to the participants in the hop.  The prize is a Cricut Imagine cartridge!  We are linking our projects for each day during the hop to her blog so visitors can vote on them.  The crafter who created the project that receives the most votes wins the cartridge.  Please go here to cast your vote for your favorite project.  I'd love to win but please vote for the project you like best. We would appreciate your support and your votes.

 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 it's time to hop along to My Favorite Blog to see what incredible birthday project she has to show you.

Thanks for visiting today.  Here is the blog list!
