~28 Candles Blog Hop~


Welcome to the 28 Candles Blog Hop! First of all I want to say, "Happy 28th Birthday Kimi!!! I hope your day was as wonderful as you!"  Birthdays are so much fun! The theme of this blog hop is all about birthdays!   If you have just hopped here and would like to start celebrating at the beginning click on Lovebug Creations! If you have just left Sarah you are in the right spot! 

For my project I decided to make a birthday card and try some new techniques and supplies. I stamped a Birthday Anya Greeting Farm stamp and colored it in using Copic Markers and colored pencils. I chalked around the image. I used black enamel accents for the headband and I love the shine! The white frosting on the cake has glitter but isn't showing up in the pic. I added buttons, ribbon and a flower. Happy Birthday Sentiment is from Pink By Design's Scripted Year set.  I hope you like it! I love comments! 

Blog Candy~ I am giving away a handmade Recipe book to one lucky commenter!  If you want to see a picture of one, just check out my fan page on facebook Ricketts Cricuts! All you have to do is leave me a comment and check back on the 19th! I would love it if you become a follower too! 

Your Next stop is  Liz
