Birthday Bash Blog Hop with CAS*ual Fridays

Today is CAS*ual Fridays Stamps 3rd birthday and I have been invited to join their bash for a special celebration blog hop!   There are prizes to be won and inspiration to be found.  

You should have come from Joanna Harty.  If you are just starting the hop and want to go back to the beginning clicky to go to the CAS*ual Fridays blog.



First I want to wish CAS*ual Fridays Stamps a HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY!!!  Thank you, Michele and your Design Team, for having me along on your Birthday Bash blog hop!  How fun to celebrate 3 years with you! 



For my card I had to use 2 of my favorite CAS*ual Fridays Stamps sets, Loving Thoughts and Love Notes.  I didn't have a sentiment in CFS stash that said "Happy Birthday to You"(from the birthday song we all love to sing at parties) so I made my own using 3 different stamp sets in my stash. That is one of the great things about the CFS line. Her stamps and sentiments go together so well, even when combined with different set in the CAS*ual Fridays line.



It wouldn't be a birthday without presents, would it?  Everyone who shops this week in the CAS*ual Fridays shop will get a no*code*needed discount.  Woot-Woot!  



There are also some awesome prizes to be had.  All you need to do to be eligible is to leave comments on each of the blogs along the hop.   (1) person will win a $75 gift certificate to the CAS*ual Fridays store!!!  Imagine all the stamping goodness you can create with that!




(2) people are going to get a MISTI!  That's right, Michele will be giving away one of them and this just in... Illiana is matching her MISTI prize! There will be 2 lucky ducks getting gift certificates to become MISTI-fied!!! 

Now on to your next stop on the blog hop, the insanely talented Catherine Pooler.
