BIRTHDAY GIRL {ABM Blog Hop for Jackie and Vannessa}

{Birthday Card for Jackie}

Hi all!!

Welcome to our first day of Jackie's birthday blog hop! We secretly organised this 3 day blog hop for our DT leader Jackie, who is celebrating her birthday today!

Happy birthday Jackie! Wishing you a great day with all your loved ones!



Comment on every stop on the hop for your chance to win 5 Art by Mi Ran images!
Each blog hop day will have 2 winners. so there are lots of chances to win! Winners will be chosen randomly. You have until July 23rd to comment, and all winners will be announced on the 25th at the Art by Mi Ran blog


You should have come from Vannessa's blog. If not, go back to the Art by Mi Ran blog, and start hopping from there.

For the hop, all team members created a birthday card for Jackie, and I used the beautiful image called PRIMROSE, created by the talented Mi Ran. She looks so serene among the roses in the beautiful garden. Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here. You can purchase PRIMROSE here.



The image has been coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} . The design papers and brads are from my stash. The folded flowers have been created with paper squares. 




Your next stop is at Jane's blog.

Here is the full hopping list in case you got lost


Don't forget to leave a comment to every stop for your chance to win 5 lovely Art by Mi Ran images!

Thanks so much helping us celebrating Jackie's birthday, and please join us tomorrow for day 2 of our 3-day hop for Jackie!
Have a great day!

  23. Hello
    Want to drop a note to thank you for your sweet comments. They mean a lot to me that you have taken the time to stop by. I have not been on the computer much. As I am caregiving for a dear friend who had Stage 4 Lung Cancer. Every day her fragile body is deteriorating. I have not ever seen someone dying right in front of me. All I can do is just keep her comfortable, encourage her and trust the Lord to be her comfort and joy. So please do not be dismayed, when I am unable to stop by your blogs and leave some love.
    Your project/card is amazing and look forward to stopping by when I can. Have a wonderful day and even better week.
    In His Joy
