Joy's Birthday Party Blog Hop

Welcome Everyone,

First of all, I want to wish Joy a Happy Birthday! May this be your best year ever! I hope everyone is having a fun time "hopping" along! If you did not know, Joy had a strawberry themed birthday party since she was eight years old. I decided to play along with this theme! I decided to make a strawberry cupcake (I used Pilsbury Strawberry Cake Mix) and a cute strawberry cupcake wrapper with a matching topper. I also created a birthday card using the Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge (recipe follows). Here is what I created:


Cupcake Holder:

- cut from Sweet Treats at 5.5 inches
- red ink
- adhesive
- scalloped circle cut at 2 inches, circle cut at 1.5 inches, flower cut at 0.75 inches
- hearts from Joy's Life Lots of Puns Stamp set
- dimensionals
-tooth pick




 The cat and birthday cake was cut from the Birthday Bash cartridge at 4.25 inches.  The strawberry ribbon is from Michaels and the paper is from the DVWC Nana's Nursery Stack. The sentiment featured on this card is from Joy's Mother and Daughter Stamp Set.


GIVEAWAY TIME!

Follow my blog, and leave a comment on my post to win Joy's Father and Son Stamp Set! I will be choosing a winner on Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011. Just make sure to leave a way for me to contact you!
