SNSS Birthday Blog Hop!!

 

4thbdaybloghop

 

Hello again everyone. This is my second post today!

For this post, I’d like you to welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Birthday Blog Hop!  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is so excited to be celebrating four wonderful years!

I’ve followed SNSS since the company was just opened. I was just happy being one of the customers :) … After 4 years later, who thought I was a part of the digi team? Now, I am so happy that I’ve had a chance getting to know Korin and other wonderful group of stampers! 

A fantastic group of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps design team members past and present, along with some special friends, have put together this fabulous Birthday Blog Hop to kick off a whole month of fun. We have 37 stops so the hop will take place over three days - feel free to take your time visiting each blog!  You have until 11:59pm EST November 9th to leave comments on as many blogs as you can. 

On Saturday, November 12th Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will announce FOUR winners (chosen at random from comments on random stops along the hop); each lucky winner will receive a prize pack including stamps, dies, paper & twine valued at $40!


If you have been following along already you should have come from Harriet Skelly.  If you are only starting here, please head back to the SNSS blog and go from there.  You won't want to miss any stops along the way!  Also, don't forget to comment on as many stops as you can....the more comments the better your chance of winning one of the fabulous prize packs! :)

 

Here is my blog hop card!

Sweet_N_Sassy_30_edited

 

Sweet_N_Sassy_30-2_editedI used Cocoa’s Gift Digi for the image and Do Not Open Till Christmas Digi for the sentiment. The image was colored with Copic markers (The dots on the box was created with Copic blender pen). The card was designed with the cardstocks and My Mind’s Eye papers. Then the ribbon, the image mat and sentiment tag were placed. To finish off, the flower embellishment and swirl pearls were adhered.

 

Your next stop on the hop is Jerusha Borden, but just in case there are any hiccups, here is the whole list of celebrants on this party train:
