SNSS Birthday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Birthday Blog Hop!
  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is so excited to be celebrating four wonderful years!


A fantastic group of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps design team members past and present, along with some special friends, have put together this fabulous Birthday Blog Hop to kick off a whole month of fun.
We have 37 stops so the hop will take place over three days - feel free to take your time visiting each blog! 
You have until 11:59pm EST November 9th to leave comments on as many blogs as you can. 
On Saturday, November 12th Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will announce FOUR winners (chosen at random from comments on random stops along the hop); each lucky winner will receive a prize pack including stamps, dies, paper & twine valued at $40!

If you have been following along already you should have come from Dina Kowal's blog



If you are only starting here, please head back to the SNSS blog and go from there. You won't want to miss any stops along the way! Also, don't forget to comment on as many stops as you can....the more comments the better your chance of winning one of the fabulous prize packs! :)

 My DT time with SNSS began with the Cocoa Mouse challenges, so I had to use this adorable little guy to create my Surprise Birthday card.!

Image was coloured with Copics, and accented with Stickles and glossy accents.
Image was cut and matted with Nestabilities, and the main circle was paper pierced.


Green panel was embossed with a  Cuttlebug folder, red glitter dots are Stamping Bella, papers used are MME, and other embellishments are from my stash.

  

Your next stop on the hop is Shelby Goolsby's blog but just in case there are any hiccups, here is the whole list of celebrants on this party train:
