Suzanne's Surprise Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

I have a very special card for you today - a birthday card for Suzanne, the owner and talented force behind So Suzy Stamps!

And we are celebrating this wonderful occasion with a special blog hop!
You may have arrived from the wonderful Giada, our Italian contingent :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Suzanne!

Displaying SoSuzyBH.jpg


I used the Blowing Butterflies (heat embossed in gold)  and the Birthday Wishes to create my card.
I cut myself a gold frame from glitter paper and added a water color wash. I opened the frame on the side to have the butterflies and color spill out. Added lots of splatters and the heat embossed sentiment


Your next stop on the hop is the talented Henriette - you are going to love her card!
And just in case you get lost - below are all the participants listed.

You even can get lucky and win a $20 gift certificate for So Suzy Stamps - sponsored by Justine and a Bunkie Bag from Simply Charming Everyday, but you have to leave a comment on all blog hop participants in order to be eligible to win.
