Hello ~ welcome to Emma's "Surprise" Birthday Blog Hop and Throwback Thursday Challenge! There is lots of fun and exciting things happening all at once here ~ so I will try to keep this as short as I possibly can! You should have arrived from the talented Miss Katie's blog.
Well we are celebrating Miss Emma's, from My Creative Time, Birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Miss Emma! I have to say she is the SWEETEST, KINDEST, MOST ADORABLE, BEAUTIFUL, THOUGHTFUL, CREATIVE and SPECIAL person! I would add more adjectives to describe her but I promised to keep this a short. I have followed her since I started my journey into blogland! She has shared her love for paper to so many through the years. Emma ~ I continue to learn off your videos, your creations and from your incredible products! I LOVE how versatile they can be! The best part about Emma is her LOVE for FAMILY! That is what I admire the most about her! So with all that said ~ HAPPY BIRTHDAY ~ sweet friend~ I know it will be filled with lots of LOVE, HUGS and KISSES!
Onto the Throwback Thursday Challenge! We are using any "OLDER" cartridge with balloons, party hats, or cakes and Emma's stamps. Please create ANY project of your choice. In celebrating her birthday ~ Miss Emma will be giving away a Cuttlebug! Yes ~ you heard me correctly! You have 2 weeks to play along! Click here for all the details.
For my card I decided to you use the cartridge Sweet Treats. I cut my party hat @ 5 inches. (cut 3 times ~ so I can give it some dimension). The party hat had a topper for it but I knew Emma's Scallop Circle Die would be CUTER to use! So I die cut that out 3 times added a button! Somewhere along the line I thought I have heard Emma say she likes orange, fingers crossed on this one, so I just had to use paper with orange polka dots! For my background I used Emma's Fun Boarders stamp set (background & heat embossed) and for my sentiment I used Polka Dot "Surprise"! I thought the stamps should be a little throwback with Emma's products to fit the challenge! All paper is Paper Trey Ink.
Okay with all that said ~ in order to win the BLOG HOP GRAND PRIZE you have to comment on ALL the designers blogs and LEAVE away to be contacted! You have until Sunday night to comment. The Blog Hop GRAND PRIZE is the following My Creative Time products:
