Blog Hopping ... Is that a Problem

Hi guys .... you ready for another MFT blog hop!!!!

If you didn't hop onto my blog from Cindy Haffner's blog then you may want to go to Kim van der sanden's blog and start at the beginning ... once you get to the end of the blog hop ... don't forget to leave a comment on that blog so you are in for a chance for some fabulous blog candy.

I made this card a few weeks ago for my daughter's birthday ... but as the stamps I used here were not being released until later today (Wed 19th November) I couldn't share it with you all until now. I just love this new BC Dzyns new set called "and then I said" which will be available for sale through MFT Stamps. The set is designed with teenagers in mind however I think it has a much wider appeal than that ... my daughter is in her 30's and it suited her so well I just had to use it.

Don't you just love the sentiment ... this set has lots of fun sassy sentiments ... to make this one fit in for a birthday card I used my computer to create a saying for inside the card which said "that you're getting older? Happy Birthday". Thanks to my friend Kim who helped me out with the inside greeting.

I used the traffic jam cuttlebug embossing folder to add texture to the red base panel. The layout of this card was for one of Beate's weekend sketch challenges.

Don't forget to continue on with the blog hopping fun you will need to leave my blog and head on over to Jessie Rone's blog. Enjoy your blog hopping journey!
