Blessed at 60 Birthday & Blogaversary Blog Hop

Hello my bloggie friends! I feel like it has been way to long since I last posted! I have been a busy bee these last couple of months but I promise to start posting more! So here is the scoop! I have been asked to participate in a two day hop this weekend and I am so excited and feel blessed to be invited to partake in such a great event! Today's hop is in honor of Kathie Nelson's 60th birthday! A VERY BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU KATHIE!!!!  If you are here from Kathy's page ( then you are in the right spot.... if you are just stopping by then please be sure to start at the beginning of the hop to join in on the fun. Kathie's hop can be found at

So I was sitting there thinking... what can I do to honor Kathie on this very special birthday... well after brainstorming for a bit I came up with a couple of different cards! I had tons of fun making them and hope Kathie and you enjoy! :)

60 really is the bomb isn't it? I hear it is the new 40!
This card was made with paper I had laying around (most likely Hobby Lobby) and the bomb was created with the Micky and Friends Cricut Cartridge... the letters are from the Storybook cartridge. (p.s. not sure what the blob is above the B but my daughter was over by it before I took the picture... so who knows ;) )

Simply Fabulous even at 60! I do not know Kathie well but I am pretty sure this fits her perfectly! :)
The crown was created with the Storybook cartridge. The stamp was from K Andrew Designs... it is a stamp set called Fashionable Friends. If you have not had a chance to check out Kristal's stamps (cause I never talk about them or anything ;)) Be sure to check them out! She just release new sets this weekend and they are of course... ADORABLE! anyhow... check them out here
Okay this was meant to be cute so I hope you are not put off by it Kathie :) It is Happy Birthday From one ol' bag to another! I thought it was cute... The saying "From one ol' bag to another" is also from the Fashionable Friends stamp set by K. Andrew Designs and the Happy Birthday was a stamp set I picked up from Hobby Lobby by Paper Studio I believe... The bag came from Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge and the paper and ribbon were just stuff I had!

Isn't it cute... Oh I forgot the rhinestones! Gotta bling it up a bit right??

Alright! I hope you enjoyed the cards and Kathie my dear I do hope this is a very VERY special birthday. So I was not as prepared as I thought... I was going to just give away a cute little thing of blog candy for tomorrows hop but what fun is that? Gotta have the blog candy.... I will pick up a cute set of stickers (birthday themed of course) for one lucky blog winner! I would love for you to become a follower if you are not already but you do not have to but please leave me a comment and on Monday I will pick a lucky winner using! If you are looking for other giveaways a little birdy told me Kathie is doing a giveaway for a fabulous gypsy giveaway... all you have to do is visit her blog and make a very small donation to the Kidney Cancer Association and you are entered to win!
