We are celebrating birthdays today!

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each entry. 
One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win the image that the designer used. And additionally, one commenter on the From the Heart Stamps Blog will be selected to win a $5 gift voucher to the store!

We are also having a little word search today. As you stop on each blog collect the special letter they have for you. Put the letters together for a message.

My letter for you is:

 Didn't you just love her card...and I love the technique she shared too!!

For my card today, I am using "Birthday Pickup"
I colored this cool image with my Copic markers.
Paper pad is MME: Lime Twist: Fly A Kite
And my loved embossing folder is by Darice: Stars
I followed the sketch from STS, but very loosely. 

Now head over to Imke's blog and see her beautiful card...Love her coloring and card design. 

Thanks for hopping with us today. 
The hop will end on Monday November 4th at 6am, EST.
