Surprise Blog Hop !

Thank you for joining us for a very special blog hop today. Today we celebrate
the birthday of our "head nut" Nikki. Nikki is the owner and designer of
Paper Piecings by Nikki where you will find wonderful paper piecing patterns.
This hop is dedicated to our fearless leader from her design team
Each of the DT member's has created a special card for Nikki including a
special message on the back side of the card. The cards have all been placed
in a book and sent to Nikki for a memento of her first Design Team members.
Please take the time to stop in and visit each of
our DT sisters blog and make sure you leave some comments for the DT. We all
depend on those comments to help us improve our work.
If you have arrived here from my sisters blog Patti, you are in the right place, if not you may
want to start from the beginning:
And here is my card to Nikki:
I remember when Nikki first showed up in one of the challenge blog groups on facebook.  She wanted to start a design team but didn't know how or if she should do it.  We all encouraged her to go for it.  She gave us a free digi and we were to make a project with it.  From there she would choose her design team.  This is the digi she gave us to work with.  I fell in love with it right away!!! 
This is the card I made for her design team call.
I am so glad to be part of her design team.  I have loved getting to know Nikki and watch her talents blossom.  Happy Birthday Nikki, you are an inspiration to me!!
Thank you for helping to celebrate the birthday of a wonderful designer,
but more importantly our friend!
Happy Birthday Nikki!
Now hop on over to Mindy to see their card for Nikki!!
Here is the full line up in case you get lost along the way
