Celebration Blog Hop



Hello blogland and Happy New Year! 

Doris here, and welcome to my stop on the CELEBRATE blog hop for Cuttin and Stampin!  You should have come here from Janet's blog at Janet's Creative World, but if you get lost along the way the full line up is at the bottom of this post.

I've been crafting most of my life, and am an admitted paper addict :) My style tends to be more clean and simple, but I love trying new techniques and playing with color too.  I don't like spending a lot of time on a project because I'll keep changing my mind :)

Our theme for this blog hop is Celebrate, and I made a birthday card to add to my stash for the year.



This card was so simple and quick to make, and most of it came out of my scrap pile.  I wanted to make the card a little dimensional, so I used some paper straws as the candles and used some little pop dots to hold them in place.  A little bakers twine and some bling - all done! All supplies used to make this card came from a.muse studio and you can find them HERE.



And what's a celebration without something sweet?  I made these little banners using the same straws, stamps and paper from a.muse studio and stuck them into some chocolate dipped marshmallows; easy peasy!
 
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to stop at all 11 new Design Team members and leave a comment at each, then at the final stop is where you can enter to WIN blog candy. There are (2) $25.00 gift certificates to A Muse Studio up for grabs.  Your next stop from here is over to Sherri's flip-floppin blog.
 
In case you get distracted along the way, here is a complete line up:
