It’s my birthday blog hop Post 5 3/15/11

Welcome to the It’s my Birthday Blog hop!  In honor of my 38th birthday… What better way to celebrate than a blog hop??
Today is my actual birthday & it’s been very special with everyone’s happy wishes!
Be sure to come back again tonight, as I’ll be posting one last card!

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 so far, and I know several bloggers have posted new cards.. 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 5th card; 

So when I made my easel card (you’ll have to wait until St. Patricks Day to see that one), I saw instructions on how to do a double twisted easel here:  Their card was so cute I had to try it!!!
I have a lot of March Birthday’s at work, and as you know, man cards are so difficult!!!  
So all of the patterned paper is from the rustic dcwv stack, and the solid paper is just paper I had.  The images on front are just from two different sticker packs (one I got in the bins at JoAnns and the other I just had a few pieces left over).  The happy birthday sticker I just had…  This was a super easy card & I really like how it turned out!!!

I hope you liked the card…

Of course, I have blog candy!!!  It’s a birthday celebration – there has to be candy!!!
I am also celebrating a couple of milestones this weekend!!!
I got to 200 fans on my facebook page:

These were my goals to get to by my birthday so I’m very happy!!!
