Welcome to Heather's *Sweet* Birthday Blog Hop!

We are so excited to celebrate Heather's birthday today,

owner and designer for Fresh Brewed Designs!

And we are even more excited to share this special day with you all, too!

Today is a celebration blog hop to honor one of the most sweetest

and faith-filled gals we have been blessed to meet!

It's Heather's birthday and that means YOU are in for a treat

with the cards and creations on this hop!

AND a little "Goodie Bag" treat for one lucky winner!

{TBA: Sunday, 4/17, midnight}

If you arrived on this sweet birthday hop from Linda's Blog, you are in the right place!

Linda started us off on our hopping adventure today, and I know you won't want to miss her amazing creation, so if you just happened along and didn't start with Linda, the please go back to her blog and begin from there.

For my card to celebrate sweet Heather's birthday, I used one of the digis from her store.  This one is called Coffee Cake, and knowing that Heather is a big fan of the java, I thought this would be the perfect birthday cake for her.  I hope she finds it as yummy looking at it, as I did coloring it!!  ;)  The designer paper comes from Paper Trey Ink.  The pom-pom trim is some I found at the local Wal-Mart store, and the sentiment is from Stampin Up! 
 The second photo show the Frosted Lace Stickles that I added to the frosting, as well as the shiny dots, stripes and cup, which is just Glossy Accents painted over the surface of the colored image.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have fun on the hop, and just in case you get lost along the way, here is the full list of birthday hoppers:
