Birthday Blog Hop for Barbara!!



Hello everyone~

This is my second post for today. To see Sweet ‘N Sassy Digi Challenge post, just scroll down to the next post :)


Woohoo!!! Today’s one special day for one special lady!! It’s Barbara Anders ’s birthday!!! I have been in a couple design teams including SCS Dirty Dozen with her:) Since then, I became a huge fan of her beautiful work. Not only she is a super talented stamper, but also she is a big cat lover!! I hope I will get to meet her and her furry babies one day.  

In a meantime, I’m just so happy to celebrate her special day with this Surprise Birthday Blog Hop! 

Happy Birthday Barbara!!!
