It’s my birthday blog hop! Post 3 3/13/11 evening

Welcome to the It’s my Birthday Blog hop!  In honor of my 38th birthday… What better way to celebrate than a blog hop???

This is a rather long hop – it goes from March 12th (Saturday) to March 15th (Tuesday)…. This is post #3.  

Be sure to come back again on Tuesday, as I’ll be posting a new card every day, and I know some of the other bloggers will too!

There are 38 other bloggers participating in this hop and they’re all very talented – so you’re in for a treat…. I’ve been impressed with all the great cards on day 1 and 2… is the first blog in the hop, so you’ve started in the right place!  If you were just here visiting, be sure to hop along & see all the great posts… Can’t wait to get my Venti Iced Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte & start hopping!

So this is my 3rd card; 

Other view

I used the accordian fold method shown on the Scor-pal site –  This card is for a co-worker and she really liked that style of card, so I thought I’d make her one…
I decided to visit JoAnn today and picked up a latte mat stack (DCWV) and the all dressed up mat stack (as much as I try to resist stacks, I love them & have to buy them)…
So all of the patterned paper is from the dressed up mat stack, and the solid paper is dcwv as well, probably from a different stack.  I wasn’t having much cricut love today, so I used some stampin up punches & pop dots & my i-rock & new fiskars birthday sentiments stamps that I bought today…

I hope you liked the card…

Of course, I have blog candy!!!  It’s a birthday celebration – there has to be candy!!!
