PurpleFuntastick Birthday Bonanza Hop -- Happy Birthday, Kari!! :)

Hello and welcome to Kari's Birthday Bash!  Thanks for coming to the party!!  There's a SUPER FUN crowd of Kari's friends gathering to CELEBRATE this magnificent lady!! :)

Kari has a special Grand Prize to give away so make sure you comment at each stop on the hop!!

If you're ready to begin the celebrating, then let's get started...  If you've hopped over from Jen, then you are in the right place!!  If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and you'd like to join the party, then please CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Kari's blog because...  If you want to see everything from the start, then the start is quite a good place to begin!! :)

Let's see what I created for Kari...
Kari loves purple and chocolate, so I found this delicious looking chocolate-colored ribbon that just reminded me of her!!  I embossed the purple cardstock with my Cuttlebug "Happy Birthday" embossing folder, added some flowers and butterflies (something else she loves), stamped the "Today is your day!" sentiment from the "Positive Thoughts" Stamp Art Set by K Andrew Designs, and topped it off with two "chocolate" themed handmade stick pins...  I sure hope she likes it!! :)
I'd like to thank Kari for including me in the CELEBRATION --  I'd also like to thank  all of my wonderful friends and followers who take the time to hop through and help make this such a WONDERFUL hop!!  Now....   Before you leave...  What's a hop without some GOODIES???

I have a little blog candy for you!!  I will be sending a pack of 6x6 paper and embellishments to one fabulous winner!! :) 

To be eligible for my blog candy:
  • Please become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment answering this FUN question: "What's on your Birthday Wish List??? (on mine is -- an office chair on wheels -- but I'd settle for dinner with the family!!)"!!

  • You will also receive a BONUS chance should you decide to follow Love To Crop! via Networked Blogs OR "Like" the Love To Crop! facebook page (again, automatic entries by notification, no need to comment)...

Now it's time to send you on your way to the NEXT party guest... Shannon!!  Enjoy the rest of the PARTY!! :)

My birthday list? Too long to add here, but first and foremost to get a job.
This is so beautiful, I would have never thought of adding those two colors together...again, you are such an inspiration.
I would be honored if you came to see my blog here

Amy such a lovely card thank you for sharing. For me xmas comes first but between that and my birthday wish list there are SO many things that it would take me all day to type them up but my biggies are a holiday to florida(as we had such a disasterous one this year), a new guillotine as im fed up cutting things squint and the box set of all desperate housewives series !!

Luanne said...

My birthday wish would be latest cricut machine or sizzix big shot pro.

This card is adorable! I love it. What's on my wish list? I would like a bind it all...or a lifetime supply of ATG refill tape. :)


Sue said...

I really like this combination of colors. It's not a pair I would have thought of, but now I will especially since my granddaughter's favorite food is chocolate and her fav color is purple. TFS. On my birthday wish is an expression, but I would settle for some brads or ribbons. TFS

Judy said...
