For the first order of business, I want to share the blog hop participants. I hope you will visit all their blogs to see their amazing creations and for some opportunities to win some of these adorable stamps.
For my birthday card, I used this sweet little image called Birthday Hat Cocoa. And you can pick up this sweet image for FREE (Monday only) when you visit the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog. Here is my card...
Stamp: Birthday Hat Cocoa
Paper: DCWV, Tempting Turquoise, Apricot Appeal, Wild Wasabi, Orchid Opulence (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Ink Jet Printer, Copics
Accessories: Stickles, Dew Drops, satin ribbon, mini rose, Spellbinders Scallop Oval Die
I really wanted the hat to sparkle, so I colored it completely with Copics, then covered over it with Stickles.
The layout for my card was inspired by Friday Sketchers, so I like to give credit where credit is due.

So, I must say, when I first saw Birthday Hat Cocoa, I thought, "This would be a perfect birthday hat for Tilda." So, with that inspiration, I also created this card, using Birthday Hat Cocoa as her hat. The basic recipe is the same, with just the different image. Isn't it a coincidence that this little cutie is called Sweet Tilda.
I just love Cocoa because he is so versatile. He can be the main focal point, or he can be a co-star for a card.
Again, I really wanted some bling on the card, so I added Stickles to Tilda's dress and the hat. Who wouldn't mind this cute little mouse sitting on their head (hee, hee).
I want to wish Korin a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
