Jillian's Birthday Blog Hop - Day 4

Welcome to Jillian's Birthday Blog Hop! We're super happy to have you hopping with us today.

Before I go any farther, I'd like to ask you to please take a minute and go here and vote for your favorite project from each day of this blog hop! More information can be found toward the bottom of this post.

Welcome back for the last day of our 4-day blog hop in honor of our friend, Jillian's, 12th birthday which takes place tomorrow. If you were here any of the past 3 days, you no doubt were inspired by all of the birthday awesomeness you saw. Once again, we have all new projects to show you today! If this is your first time hopping with us, then you may want to go all the way back to Friday's posts and work your way forward to see what you missed and to find out more about the birthday girl herself. She is a very talented and ambitious young lady who has endeavored to create and sell her own line of stamps. 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 that. would you?  The blog list should be posted at each stop in case you get lost.

I have another birthday card to show you today, featuring an image from Magnolia Stamps.  This is cute little Tilda and she has a yummy cake for our birthday girl.  Isn't it a funny thing that I'm celebrating Jillian's birthday with her yet none of my cards bear her fabulous stamps!  Well, as usual there's a good explanation for that.  The stamps I own from Jillian's line aren't appropriate for birthdays so I had to use stamps I already had.  There are several other cards in previous blog posts on which her stamps were used.  

5 1/2" square aqua card base and aqua and white mats are cut from Core'dinations. Yellow mats inside are cut from Recollections cardstock.  The dp is from My Mind's Eye Home Glitter Book, which you know by now if you follow my blog, is one of my favorite stacks. The pretty aqua ribbon is from Michael's and the punches used on the inside mats are MS Crafts' Stamp Around the Page.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing my card and I hope Jillian likes it.  The inside sentiment is my own and I did the lettering to match the front greeting as much as possible.  The heart stick pin was sent to me by a crafty friend in Louisiana and I added the Swarovski crystals and tiny silver beads.  

Voting Information:

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 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.  You'll find them grouped together by date.  I'd love to win but please vote for the project you like best. We would appreciate your support and your votes.

Candy Alert!

This is the last day of the hop and therefore, the last project I made for it.  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).  The more comments you leave, the more entries you will get.  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 hopping with us today.  Here is the blog list!
