Birthday Bash Blog Hop!!!

Good morning, and welcome to the Sweet -n Sassy Stamps Birthday Bash Blog Hop in celebration of our friend and the owner of Sweet -n Sassy Stamps, Korin Sutherland!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Korin!!  You should have arrived here from the talented Kim's blog, but if you just happend along, you'll certainly want to go back to the beginning and start with Micki's blog, so you won't miss even one wonderful birthday creation!  Korin's the birthday girl, but she's giving YOU the presents today.  First off, be sure to check out the Sweet -n Sassy Stamps Digi Blog for a free Cocoa with Birthday Hat digital stamp.  While you're there, leave a comment, and be entered to win a $25.00 gift certificate to the SNSS store.  In additon, I will be giving away this adorable Peek-A-Boo Sophie digi to one lucky commenter on this post.  The winner will be drawn at random and announced tomorrow morning, so be sure to check back to see if you've won, and get details on how to collect your free image.  Want to increase your chances of winning a free digi?  All you have to do is hop along to each of the Digi Diva's blogs, and leave a comment, because EVERYONE will be offering the chance for a free digi along the way!!  Oh my goodness!!  Does it get any better than this?

For my card today, I used the Peek-A-Boo Sophie image.  I colored her with Copcis, and popped her up on the background panel.  The sunny designer paper is from K&Co., and the swirlys you see along the side were drawn with a template that I have, then paper pierced and the dots connected with a marker.  I added a prima flower, rhinestones, and some ribbon for bling, and the sketch comes from the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge this week. 

I think that about wraps up this part of the Birthday Bash Blog Hop, so now you'll be headed over to Nancy's blog for one of her stunning and inspirational creations.  Should you get lost along the way, below you will find a complete list of blog stops.  Have fun, and HAPPY HOPPING!!
