Scrappin' with my Bug Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to Scrappin' with my Bug's birthday blog hop!!!  I am so happy to be a part of this hop!Michelle is an extremely talented lady who has taught me so much.  When I look at her projects I feel inspire.  It's definitely great that so many ladies have gotten together to creatively celebrate her birthday! Thanks for inviting me Michelle!!! :) 

You should have arrived here from Jenny's blog and if you happen to stumble upon my blog, you can go to Michelle's blog to start the hop.  You don't want to miss any of the wonderful projects!

The them for this blog hop was to use any one or more of Michelle's favorite things.  I decided to use a Greeting Farm stamp and Pink by Design stamps. Believe me, she had a very long list, but I decided to stick with just two things! ;-)


I made this shadowbox as a gift to Michelle since she loooooves sweets so much!!! (SURPRISE MICHELLE!!!). I used the Cupcake Anya digi stamp from Greeting farms and colored it with my prismacolor pencils (yes... I'm cheating on my cricut!).  I also used a couple of the stamps from Pink by Design's A Cupcake for You stamp of the month collection.  The cupcake inside the frame is from this stamp set as well as the sentiment.  Both papers inside the frame are from a Martha Steward.

I used zapdots to give the images dimension


I used this sheet from a Martha Steward cardstock stack and
cut each of the cupcakes to glue to the outside of the frame.


Here's the card I made for Michelle:


I used another paper from Martha Steward to cut out the front image for the card.
 I am just loving this Martha Steward birthday collection!!!!



 The inside of the card is stamped from a sentiment from the
PBD A Cupcake for You collection.

Now what's a blog without blog candy!!! I am giving away this cute Crazy Daisy background stamp from Pink by Design to one lucky winner. 



All you have to do is be a follower on my blog and leave a comment below. Don't forget to wish the birthday girl a very happy birthday!  That's it!!!  Now head on over to the fabulous Theresa's blog.  I hope everyone has a beautiful day and God bless!!!
