Happy Birthday HOP!

My 450 Follower Candy here

Welcome to Denise's birthday party hop!
If you've come here from Ann's blog, then you're on the right track. 
If not, start at Iris's blog so you don't miss a thing!

Today (May 16) we are celebrating the birthday of one of the best stamp company owners out there: Denise Lynn of Whimsy Stamps! To show our appreciation for Denise's kindness, the Whimsy family and previous guest designers are holding a birthday party blog hop using some of the amazing Whimsy Stamps products that we have grown to love.  Thank you, Denise, for giving us the opportunity to represent a company with great products, wonderful customer service, and most of all, an owner who truly cares about its artists and designers.  You are the best!


To show some appreciation to the Whimsy customers for helping us celebrate Denise's birthday, we are giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to Whimsy Stamps store.  Just hop along, leave a comment on the birthday blog posts by May 21, and a random winner from the comments left on participating blogs will be chosen to win the gift certificate.  The winner will be posted on the Whimsy Stamps blog on May 22.


Challenges Entered:
Just Keep on Creating - Anything Goes
Paper Shelter - Birthday w/Sentiment
Cute Card Thursday - A touch of sparkle
Delightful Challenge - Add Ribbon
Little Miss Muffett - Anything Goes

For today's birthday hop I've made a rich and swirly half fold card that I learned from Angie Hunt in her monthly card class!  Thanks Angie!  Just to get started I used one of my newest favorite stamp by Crissy Armstrong called Birthday Hippo.  He is colored with Copic markers.  The paper is part of my recycle bin, (Yeah!), and the pearls are The Paper Studio.  The Sentiment is by Raindrop Echo Designs w/Whimsy, (the Bottle cap set) and the Bottle Cap Die is Shapeology w/Whimsy!  The final touches were with Stickles, Clear Star Glitter pen, Pentel white ink and some pearl Beads in a Bottle by Tulip.  I hand rolled my flowers with paper from my favorite online store Creative Papers Online.  In the end some leaf punches by Martha Stewart and Satin ribbon from Offray and my Birthday card for the boss lady is all set!  Hope you enjoy it!


Happy Birthday Denise, I wish you only the most wonderful day!  For all of my other blog friends out there, there isn't a more compassionate, understanding, professional and generous boss lady!!  Thanks for everything you do!


This hop is rather large, so here's the hop order in case you get lost:


Thanks for joining us today!  Feel free to head over to Denise's blog to wish her a happy birthday :)
 INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
You were born an original, don’t die a copy.
