Paper Sundaes Birthday Blog Hop!

Hello there, peeps! welcome to the Paper Sundaes Birthday Celebration!

(If you have arrived here from Karina's Blog, then you are on the right track. If you've gotten lost, please go back and start at the Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog and hop along so that you don't miss out on any of the gorgeous creations from the Sundae Girls. You may also have a chance to win some yummy blog candy!)

While you are hopping along, remember to collect a word from each DT Member's blog and comment on all the stops. If you do, you will be entered into a drawing for some amazing prizes! Your last stop will be back at the Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog, where you enter the phrase you collected along the way for your chance to win even more!

Our challenge this week is extra special - we would like you to show us your favorite challenge from the past year! And to celebrate, we have four different prizes for four randomly drawn winners! Each DT Member has also picked her favorite past challenge to share with you!


For my birthday hop card, I used Challenge #2, Build a Sundae. This was a recipe challenge using:

Ice cream: Chocolate (brown)
Sauce: Strawberry (pink)
Topping: Whipping cream (lace)
Finishing touch: Cherry on Top (Flowers)

Here is my card. I used this cute image from one of our fantastic sponsors, Whiff of Joy. The Image is called "girl with cookies."

I colored her with Copics, naturally. Is she cute in her little pink apron and slippers, or what?! The designer paper is Bo Bunny from a new 6x6 pad I picked up a few weeks ago. Plus a bit of Melissa Frances thrown in for good measure.

I colored the pins with Copics, and added some fab roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. Check out the yummy lace! A super find at my LSS.

The inside greeting is a Hero Arts stamp.

Now, I bet you want to know what word you are to collect from me....PARTICIPANTS. Write this down because you will spell out a phrase that you must take back to the Paper Sundaes Blog at the end of the hop. Make sure to leave me a comment because I will be drawing a name to win a fabbie RAK from me!

Now, hop on over to Fiona's Blog and see what she has for ya! (PS - that fabbie cake on my blog is from Cakes.Com.)
