Happy Birthday Ashley Blog hop!

Sweet Ashley asked me to be a part of her birthday blog hop and so I put this together for her. Happy birthday girl!

If you got here from Ashley's blog, then you are on the right track. If not, click on her name and it will take you there so you can join in all of the fun!

Pumpkin Spice and I are giving away a $15 gift certificate to their store!!! THANK YOU!!! That is where I got the Fine and Dandy paper and bling embellishments that I used for this project! So you can go shopping for whatever you'd like! $15 goes a long way in her store because the prices are so cheap! Go check it out! She carries a ton of My Mind's Eye, Cosmo Cricket, My Pink Stamper, and is adding Echo Park's new lines shortly! 

Here is the order of the hop just in case you get lost:

Paper: My Mind's Eye: Fine and Dandy: Tickled Pink™ "Charming"(reverse side brown), "Cherry"(reverse side pink polka dots), "Delighted"(reverse side green), and "Engaging"(reverse side pink stripes).
Cartridges: Create a Critter™, Wild Card
sentiment: Hero Arts™

Now head on over to Wendy's blog! Don't forget to leave me a comment to win and check back on Thursday when I draw the winner to see if you won the $15 to Pumpkin Spice!
