SNSS Birthday Blop Hop

Hello and welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps birthday blog hop. Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is so excited to be celebrating 4 wonderful years.

I have had the amazing opportunity of being on the design team for the past 6 months. I truly enjoyed my experience with Korin and the rest of the Sweet 'n Sassy Team. Even though my design term has come to an end, I was thrilled to be asked to be a part of this birthday blog hop.

A fantastic group of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps design team members past and present, along with some special friends, have put together this fabulous Birthday Blog Hop to kick off a whole month of fun. We have 36 stops so the hop will take place over three days - feel free to take your time visiting each blog!

You have until 11:59pm EST November 9th to leave comments on as many blogs as you can. On Saturday, November 12th Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will announce FOUR winners (chosen at random from comments on random stops along the hop); each lucky winner will receive a prize pack including stamps, dies, paper & twine valued at $40!

I also have blog candy to give away to one lucky commenter. It's a brand new 36 page pack of the BoBunny "blitzen collection" christmas paper.
Just leave me a comment and tell me to enter you in my drawing. I will announce my winner on Friday, November 11. So check back here to see if you won this candy.

 If you have been following along already you should have come from the amazing Jerusha Borden's " I love papercrafting blog".


If you are only starting here, please head back to the SNSS blog and go from there. You won't want to miss any stops along the way! Also, don't forget to comment on as many stops as you can....the more comments the better your chance of winning one of the fabulous prize packs! :)
Here is my card for the blog hop:

I am using "Christmas Light" set designed by the amazing Dina Kowal. This set has a matching die. Can that make card making any easier?

I water colored my image and then popped it up on a spellbinder lacy circle die. My sentiment is also from this same set and it was stamped and then embossed.

I used gold metallic paper so the embossing helped my red ink to show up a little better.

My lacy border is the Cheery Lynn "lace light" border die. They cut with such great detail. I used a maraschino cardstock to cut the border and the spellbinder lacy circle.
My striped designer paper is something I have had in my stash for years.

Your next stop on the hop is the incredibly talented "Lori Craig" but just in case there are any hiccups, here is the whole list of celebrants on this party train:
