Birthday Blog Hop


Thanks for joining me. Today I have the honor of being part of the birthday celebration for Reenee. She is one of the owners of Clear and Simple Stamps and I had the opportunity to get to know her during my Design Team tenure with Clear and Simple. I'm am so thankful for my time with them. They are such a great group of ladies. 

If you've come to my blog from Dana's blog you are in the right place. If you are visiting with me first then you will want to start this special birthday blog hop from the beginning at Clear and Simple Stamps. In addition to all the fun birthday wishes for Reenee and wonderful creations posted along the hop, there will be prizes and a 15% coupon.

BLOG HOP PRIZE:
CSS has selected some of Reenee's favorite products and is offering them in a surprise package of goodies. Each package with be valued at $50. You will have two chances to win. You must leave a birthday wish for Reenee on the Clear and Simple Stamps Facebook page and/or the Clear and Simple Stamps blog in order to qualify for the prize. They will pick {2} winners - one winner from FB and one winner from the CSS Blog. 

COUPON CODE:
And for fun - they are offering a 15% off coupon good for the day at CSS. You will just need to enter birthday15 in order to receive the discount. This coupon will not be valid with other offers and is good for one day only.

Ok, now how about my card for Reenee. I used Clear and Simple Stamps Across the Miles set for my images and the Icons Extra set for my sentiment. The papers are from My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup collection.


Here is a side view to show some of the detail and dimension better. The balloon on the left is mounted with one layer of foam dimensionals and the balloon on the right has two layers. The lower cloud on the top is also mounted with a layer of foam dimensionals. 


Thanks so much for joining me today and helping celebrate Reenee's birthday. You're next stop on the hop is the wonderfully talented Tracy.


Just in case you get lost along the way, here is a complete list of the Birthday Blog hop participants.
