Surprise Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Birthday Surprise Blog Hop.  Today is Scrapping Mammas (Deborah) Birthday!
Some of her awesome friends have decided to have a BIG SURPRISE BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP since we can't all be in the same place for a SURPRISE party, this is the next best thing.  This hop is a one day blog hop to wish a very special woman (fellow crafter) a very special Happy Birthday.

If you are coming from Janet S you are in the right place.  If you just joined us and would like to start at the beginning click HERE and hop along with us.  We have had so much fun creating this hop and keeping it a secret from Deborah, which wasn't easy!!  We've each created a  card or something extra special JUST for her!  You will see some lovely projects and even a chance to win some blog candy.

Now Let's get this party started!!

Here is a list of the complete lineup for this hop:

Julie @
Shawnee @
Amber @
Kristy @

Here is my project. Deborah likes the colors, yellow, pink and brown, poka dots, dogs and dragon flies.  I just bought the cricut cartridge Flower Shoppe and I think I am in love!!   The flowers on the side of the card using the daisy were cut at 2 inches and the larger flower in the center at 2 3/4 inches
The lattice on the side was cut using the Martha Stewart border punch.  The Happy Birthday stamp is from Stampin Up's Well Scripted stamp set and the dragon flies are from Studio G.  The name of the card base is called Multiple Panel Card, which I learned from Dawns Stamping thoughts on Youtube.
Now onto my blog candy.  I will draw a name for a 10.00 gift certificate to Michaels on Monday, all you have to do is leave a comment and a way to get a hold of you.  I would love it if you became a follower, but it is not required. 
Your next stop is the talented Nicolette
