Time to Celebrate!

Here it is, the day we've all been waiting for! We are having a blog hop celebrating the new Cuttin and Stampin DT and kicking off our weekly challenge blog. Each of us has produced projects to celebrate in style! (If you got here from somewhere other than Teresa R's blog, please click here to start at the very beginning of our hop.)

This blog hop includes the 11 new Design Team members, plus the final stop. Those hoppers who leave a comment at every blog in the hop will be entered to WIN blog candy -- two $25.00 gift certificates to A Muse Studio are up for grabs. So relax, grab a cuppa, and hop along to meet the NEW CUTTIN and STAMPIN Design Team.

For those who are first-time visitors to my blog, my name is Kim and I live near Boise, Idaho, after growing up in Fort Lauderdale, FL (big change!). Hubby Chris and I are owned by two sweet cats, Digit and Dusty. Chris developed life-altering chronic illnesses in 2001 shortly after we were wed, and I left corporate life shortly thereafter to care for him. Stamping was a nice, quiet hobby (sans the heat gun, hammering, etc.) for me. Throughout my stamping journey, I've met so many wonderful people and learned so many techniques... I wouldn't trade any of them.

For my project today, I have a celebratory birthday card created using the sketch from the Take Ten magazine's Winter 2013 issue:





Supplies:
Stamps: At First Sight (A Muse Studio)
Paper: Solid cardstock in sugar & grapefruit and chevron cardstock in grapefruit (A Muse Studio)
Paint/Ink: Grapefruit (A Muse Studio)
Accessories: Baker's Twine in cherry/white (A Muse Studio), Birthday sticker (Bella Blvd.), pop dots (3L)


I want to thank you all again for stopping by and being part of our CELEBRATION Hop. (Don’t forget to hop all the way through and comment at each blog to be eligible for the big drawing.) Your next stop is CallyAnn's blog, where she's got two wonderful projects to share.
