Happy Birthday Blop Hop

Hey, guess what day it is? Yes, yes, it's April 5th but guess what else today is? It's Korin's birthday!! And a bunch of us are hosting a surprise blog hop to celebrate Korin's special day!! WooHoo!! (I think there might even be some prizes in store so be sure to visit everyone's blog!) For those of you who might not know, Korin is the owner and illustrator of Sweet 'n Sassy stamps and she is one sweet lady! I had the pleasure of meeting, and stamping, with Korin about two years ago at a Stamping Around event. Not only is she so full of energy and life, but she instantly puts you at ease and you feel as if you've been friends forever. And now I have the blessing of working on her design team, which is just about the best team out there!!
For today's card I used the Cocoa Kind of Birthday stamp set and paired sweet cocoa with some new spring paper from Best Creation. My image is colored with Copic markers. And since sweet Cocoa took up a decent chunk of my card cover, and I really wanted to use a larger sentiment, I opted to decorate the inside of my card too! How fun! Korin, we wish you the very happiest birthday!! We love you!! Here is the list of who else is participating in today's blog hop...stop by and pay everyone a visit, there just might be a drawing for some free goodies along the way!! Enjoy!!
