Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!

Happy birthday dear Jessica,...

It's Jessica Knutsen's birthday today and the TSG girls thought they'd put on an INKY and FABULOUS BLOG HOP for her! Waahoooo!If you've stopped here from the UBER talented Piali's blog, then you're on the right track, but if you haven't and would like to wish our dear friend well on her special day, then head on over to Senior Trendsetter, Angela Thomas's blog to start the birthday hop there.

I wouldn't dream of not participating in a hop for my sweet friend Jess. She really is a fabulous lady and a pleasure to work for. I decided to use the Wrapped In Joy set for Jess's card because I can't get enough of Torico's sweet sets! I borrowed this month's Sketch For You To Try for my layout and some of my favorite My Minds Eye paper.

THANK YOU Jessica for all you do for us rubber addicts!! WE LOVE YOU!

Your next stop along this birthday hop is the INKY and FABULOUS Tammy's blog!

There She Goes Mother Of All Blog Hops!

Saturday, May 7, 2011

Hello and welcome to the 2nd annual Mother Of All Blog Hops for There She Goes!!

There are so many stamp sets in the There She Goes line up now, that we needed another HUMONGOUS blog hop to show them all off! If you've stopped here from the sweet blog of Meredith's, then you're on the right track! But if you've just stumbled here from anywhere else and would like to join us today on this AWESOME hop, then pop on over to the There She Goes blog and start your journey there. I hear there are some fabulous prizes being given away, so you might want to play along today!

I chose to use one of my favorite mini sets for this hop. It's called Angel Mail and it's sentiments are so near and dear to my heart.

There are 3 sentiments in this set; each one as encouraging as the next. I went with this one because it's my favorite out of the three.

I wanted this card to be as warm and caring as a hug, so I dug through my scrap drawer looking for some warm colored patterned paper. I found these from Bo Bunny and Crate Paper. I also used an old Mojo Monday sketch (#170) as well as a flower from Prima, lace from Joann's and wrinkled ribbon from May Arts. I stamped the sentiment with StazOn onto cardstock and cut it out with the Spellbinders Labels One nestie. Then I sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and applied glitter to the edges with a Quickie glue pen. Those angel wings are from the mini set too! I stamped, colored and cut them out, then spritzed them with some Pearl Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels for a little bit of sparkle. Don't all wings sparkle?! Because the card was so top heavy, I added some stitching detail to the bottom of the card to try balance it out a little.

For a mini set, Angel Mail is a must have for anyone's collection!

Thanks SO much for hopping with us today!
Your next stop is.....
Jess Willison!
