Jillian's Birthday Blog Hop Day 3

What a beautiful Sunday it is.

I pray you are all enjoying your day.  Today is day 3 of Jillian's Birthday Blog Hop.  Deanne at is hosting a blog party to celebrate Jillian at I want to share with you a simple Birthday card.  Most of the time I tend to make my cards and layouts the same.  Lots of paper layers that cover most of the card stock.  But today I thought I would try something a bit different for me.  I made a simple card today and here it is. 

Isn't it pretty!  I used paper from Colorbok Summertime collection pack.

The cupcake stamp is from Studio G.  I added DecoArt Twinkles to the cherry and I colored the cupcake wrapper.

The inside of the card I stamped the cupcake partially off the corner and I decided that I would hand write the sentiment, which is why it's blank.

Here is the blog list to help you find your way!

My Favorite Blog <--you are here

Be sure to check out the blog hop Jillian has going on over at her Blog! Go over and see what's going on there and give her some birthday love.

So as I said before I am going to have a giveaway.  I am currently at 18 followers and I love everyone of you!!!  SO, when I reach 20 followers I will have my first giveaway.  Would you like to see what I will give away?

Colorbok Paper Collections: "My Little Fish", "Whimsy", "My Girl" and "Summertime".  These are the names that are on the pictures of each pack. Sticko stickers: "Sweetheart Script", "Primary Stars" and "Fun Party & Balloons".  I can see some more goodies added to this pile once my followers increase.  I wanted to keep in line with Birthdays because of Jillian and because Favorite Favors is approaching it's 3rd Birthday.  So that is why I chose the collections above.  This giveaway is open to followers of Favorite Favors only.  Once I reach the 20 mark the contest will be on!!!  

So there you have it!

Thank you for spending time with me today. It truly is an honor!!  So until tomorrow and Day 4 of Jillian's Birthday Blog Hop.  Have an wonderful day and don't forget to tell the Lord what a great day He has made!!
