Michelle's Surprise Sweet Birthday Blog Hop

Hi there!!! Welcome to Michelle's (Scrappin with my Bug) SURPRISE Birthday Blog Hop!!! Happy Happy Birthday Michelle!!!! I hope you have an incredible day and get lots and lots of crafty goodies!! If you arrived from my amazing friend Gaby you are in the right spot! If you just happened to hop on over and would love to see all the amazing projects start at Candace's blog for the beginning!

I was determined to make a different shaped card for Michelle and started to make a scrumptious Strawberry Ice Cream Cone. 

 It was going well until I tried to emboss Happy Birthday! My powder didn't feel like staying put :(
So...... I had to try again! I changed my method and went for a cupcake instead! 


Your next stop is my Creative friend Crystal!! 
 
***Blog Candy***
Jaded Blossom is giving away a Sweet Celebrations and Gumball stamp set to two lucky people who comment on all the blogs by Monday 8 am. A Third prize (TBD) will be given away on the Jaded Blossom blog. To be eligible to win that prize you must wish Michelle a Happy Birthday.

Thanks for stopping by!
Kim

Love both of your cards! They are so cute and look so yummy! HeHe. I'm sorry about the dry embossing being difficult on the ice cream card.. I have trouble with it too sometimes so I know how frustrating it can be! It's just the nature of crafting. Lol. But your cards look beautiful regardless!

Thanks so much for sharing & Happy Happy Birthday Michelle :):):)
