Girly Birthday Blog Hop


Hi, everyone!  Welcome to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and the Girly Birthday Blog Hop.  If you are coming here from Sherrie's blog, then you are in the right place.  If you happened upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, go visit Candace's blog, Scrappin' 2 Little Princesses.


Well, it's Candace's birthday this week, so Candace is having this hop to celebrate.  We're making all sorts of girly projects, and you'll have the chance to win some FANTASTIC blog hop candy along the way.  Plus, you'll be entered to win a $15 gift certificate to Pink By Design or a $20 gift card to EAD Designs if you visit all the blogs in the hop and leave comments by 11:59pm EST on September 22.  


For my project, I decided to make some girly thank you notes.  Here they are:









I made 6 A2 cards in all, each with a different girly cut I got from my Forever Young cartridge.  The patterned paper is from K&Co.'s Sparkly Sweet stack, and the sentiment is from Pink By Design's Here Comes the Bride stamp set.  The scalloped circle is a 3" punch, and the circle is a 2.75" punch.  I punched the border with a Fiskars punch, added a little ribbon and some ink, and my thank you cards were all done. It may be hard to tell from the photos, but the base of the card is a plum color, not brown. :)

Now, what would a blog hop be without some GIRLY BLOG CANDY???  


I have a Pink By Design Paisley Background Stamp to give away to one lucky follower.  Here's what you need to do to win:

1.  Be a follower of my blog and leave a comment letting me know.  Make sure you leave your e-mail address for me.

If you'd like EXTRA CHANCES to win, you can do any of the following.  Just make sure you leave me a new comment each time you do something extra so you get extra entries in my "drawing".

2.  Become a follower of my Facebook page and leave a comment letting me know (here AND on my Facebook page).  Make sure you leave your e-mail address in your blog comment (not on Facebook).

3.  Grab my blinky from my right sidebar and post it on your blog.  Then, leave me a link to your blog so I can go check it out.  Be sure to leave me your e-mail address, too.

Please, only US mailing addresses...sorry. I'll randomly choose a winner on Friday, September 23.  

Thank you again for checking out my project.  Now hop on over to Emily's Blog to check out her AWESOME project! Here's the whole lineup, just in case you get lost along the way:
