Just Us Girls Birthday Blog Hop!

Hi "JUGS" fans - today is a SPECIAL DAY! It's Kristin's birthday and Just Us Girls is having a Birthday Blog Hop in her honor.

If you are hopping along, you should have arrived here on my blog from Mona's blog. If you have arrived here without starting at the beginning of the hop, please pop on over to the Just Us Girls Challenge page and start the hop there. You will be directed to each DT member's blog in order - and you'll all be able to wish Kristin a very happy birthday.

Here's my birthday card for Kristin....




I used the Color Throwdown Challenge as my color inspiration. Fun colors, girls!

I also "loosely" used the latest Mojo Monday sketch as a starting place for layout inspiration.



I wanted to send Kristin some "relax girl!" sentiments so I'm using one of my favorite Stampin Bella stamps - the "Content-to-be-a-Bella". I paper pieced her pants and shirt - a wee bit o' copic coloring and some BIG birthday wishes for Kristin. Added a few pearls for pizzazz and a little embellishment.

Speaking of Kristin....did you know that EVERY PARTICIPANT in the JUGS 5 challenge gets a special gift this week - thanks to Kristin?!? If you have not yet played along with Challenge #5 on the Just Us Girls challenge site please stop by and play along. Be sure to scroll down to the Challenge #5 - (just below this post.)

NOW - be SURE to hop over to Tracey's blog and see what Tracey has cooked up for Kristin - you're almost to Kristin's blog - be sure to wish her a Happy Birthday when you arrive. :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

What a sweet birthday card, Pam! I love that you used the CTD colors!

That Bella stamp is a perfect way to send some 'relax on your birthday' wishes! And her paper pieced pants are adorable! In fact, I can picture them in both a silk or a flannel.....oooo! I see a trip to the fabric store in the future. Oh wait! I don't know how to sew them! Hmmmm......maybe an online search for a pattern and easy to understand instructions and THEN a run to the fabric store! Oh I digress....sorry....I think I'm the 'off on a tangent' Queen! Great card, Pam and Happy Birthday, Kristin! :>
