Emma's Surprise Birthday Blog Hop!

Today the My Creative Time Design Team is surprising our leader Emma with a birthday blog hop!  Emma is the sweetest person, always doing things for others and creating wonderful stamps and dies for us to work with.  So today, Emma, we celebrate you!  Happy birthday!!!

You should have arrived here from Jeanne's blog.  If not, you can go back to the beginning, at Micia's blog.


Since Emma loves purple, I made her card base out of PTI Royal Velvet cardstock.  To make the fun patterned shape from the Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge, I used my Gypsy to size it at 4" x 5.25" real size.


These pretty flowers are cut from PTI Royal Velvet felt, using the My Creative Time Flower Petal Dies.  I added some kraft buttons tied with a little orange hemp.  The stems and vase are all cut at 2" from the Cricut Walk in My Garden cartridge.


To make a place to stamp my pretty sentiment from My Creative Time's Teeny Tag Greetings stamp set, I added a 4" x 5/8" strip of orange cardstock.

***HUGE Giveaway!***

Now, we have a fun giveaway for this hop.  One lucky winner will receive ALL of the following stamp sets and die!  Leave a comment by Sunday night on each of our blogs to increase your chance to win.  We'll each use random.org to choose a preliminary winner, and then the grand prize winner will be chosen from there!

Stitched Lollipop Holder

Sports Sentiments

Slam Dunk

Game Night

Classy & Fabulous

Your next top is the sweet and talented Kim!  The entire line-up is below.  And don't forget to stop by Emma's blog to see her new release today!  It is FABULOUS!!!
