I am super excited to be a part in celebrating Super Joy’s birthday with this blog hop. Thank you Joy for inviting me!! You should have arrived here from Laura's page Laura Lees Dream. Wasn't her project awesome!? If you arrived here by other means, then head on over to our guest of honor's page Joy's Life to start the blog. There are so many talented individuals and they all have great projects for you to see. Here’s a list of everyone participating:
Zeni <<<You are here!
I wanted to contribute to this blog hop by making something that I can send to Super Joy for so she can continue her joyous celebration (no pun intended!). I decided to do this little birthday gift bag and card.
Inside this bag?... A SURPRISE!!!!! J
I made both the card and bag coordinating by using an embossed brown cardstock from core’dinations and the patterned cardstock from DCWV Green Stack collection.
The bag is made from tags, bags, boxes and more cartridge and I embellished it with an i-top brad (using the DCWV paper) and added some bling to it as well with my i-rock!. I also used Joy’s Life Happy Birthday stamp from the All Around Sentiments collection for the back side of the bag. The collection is great for different occasions and the round look to them is easy to use.
Joy revealed to us that every year since she was 8 years old, she has had a strawberry birthday, strawberry cake, strawberry icing, strawberry ice cream, strawberry soda, etc… so to continue with the tradition, I embellished the bag with a strawberry stem from the cartridge Rock Princess.
You can’t tell in the picture, but I used action wobbles for stamp happy birthday sentiment. The top sentiment is from Great Impressions. I tore the paper and inked the edes with Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo distress ink . And the twine was just a little extra!!!
To continue with the celebration, Joy has graciously offered to sponsor the blog candy (thank you Joy!). The lucky winner will receive the Joy’s Life Yummy Puns Stamp Set. How awesome is that?! All you have to do is leave a comment below. You do not have to become follower, but I would so love it if you did!! I will be picking a winner on Tuesday, February 22nd.
