Happy Birthday Korin!

Today is a very special day. It is Sweet N Sassy stamps owner Korin Sutherland's birthday! I am very blessed to be able to represent her company and I am also very proud to call her one of my dearest friends. So, I wanted to be able to do something special for her in celebration of her birthday. The Sweet N Sassy divas and the Cocoa Crazies are throwing her a cyber birthday party today and are celebrating with a surprise birthday blog hop.

Here is the birthday card that I created for Korin, I hope she likes it!

I used the party hat Cocoa pre-colored digi but added the green for the ground and shadow with my copics. I created the background paper using a newly released stamp set called Happy Birthdays. I also used the new Circus Fun set for the sentiment.

What is a birthday party without presents? On one of the blogs along the hop there is a prize of 3 digital stamps of the winner's choice which will be drawn at random. You will want to stop by all the blogs on the hop to see who has the present. Your next stop on the hop is Tammy and she has an adorable card to share with you.

Here is a complete list of the blogs in case you miss one along the way
