Lets Blog Hop...............

Hello and welcome ...........I was so excited to be asked by Rhonda and Amy to join them for  their Birthday Blog Hop.

 Today, it's time to CELEBRATE good times and good friends with this "BIRTHDAY PARTY" Blog Hop and Birthday Project Link-Up that will last all month long!!  Rhonda, who is turning the big 5-0 this year deserves a month-long celebration, don't ya think???  And Amy, who will forever stay 29 (for the 12th time) has always been a BIG believer in the "Birth-month Celebration"...  Soooooo...  After the hop has ended, you'll be able to create a "Birthday Party" themed project and LINK IT UP at the Decorate To Celebrate! challenge blog!!  Usually, your entry needs to be a decoration or party supply, but THIS MONTH (and this month only), you can link up ANY Birthday Party project (cards, layouts, 3D Art...).  We'll be giving out some Birthday Presents all month long, but you'll need to enter to WIN!!  You'll find more details on the challenge blog...  For now, let's get hopping!! :)

 Along the way, you'll find some incredibly creative projects to celebrate Rhonda and Amy...  If you came here from ,Cally Ann http://callyanncraftycreations.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right spot!!  If you have just happened upon my blog, I'd love for you to join the PARTY so CLICK HERE to start at Rhonda's Blog (http://scraphappenswithrhonda.blogspot.com/) so you don't miss any of the FUN!!

As a lot of us know Rhonda makes the most awesome mini albums to give away.........I know I wished for one, so that's where the fairy idea started.
She also  has a great sense of humour .......so with that in mind I made this card for her. 

The fairy is a Loralie Art Stamp......I bought it ages ago and never used it, I thought this was the perfect opportunity. Ha, just realised with this close up you can see my lipstick has run.....still getting the hang of these copics. 
The frame is from 'Elegant Edges', FABULOUS ' - Forever Young, Banner - 'Art Philosophy', Flower - 'Mothers Day Bouquet'. I've covered the lips in glossy accents to make them look fuller. 
I hope you like your card Rhonda, I had fun making it!..........you should receive it before your Birthday.

Amy loves Giraffes...........here is the card I made for her.

I thought about putting a giraffe on the card but it just wasn't working for me. Then I had  this idea.......Why not make her a Pretty Party Dress with a  Giraffe print. I down loaded the printed paper as a package of animal prints from 'Great Graphics Designs'.
 I have a few cartridges with dress forms on them but not the shape I wanted, so I made my own . The dress is from 'Forever Young and the base is from Serenade , I welded these shapes together using my Gypsy. I cut the base in black, then cut two dress shapes for extra dimension. The pink frill at the bottom is made from crepe paper. Next time I think I'll make the dress a bit shorter so you can see more of the stand.....I forgot to allow for the frill. 
I hope you like your party dress Amy.

Thanks for checking out my project, your next stop will be...Amy  http://amyscraftingspace.blogspot.com/  however, before you go, be sure to leave a comment on this post so that you'll be entered to WIN the GRAND PRIZE!!
