SURPRISE!!! Happy Birthday, Virginia!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, VIRGINIA!!!!  Were you surprised??? Hee Hee

The InStyle Stamps Design Team and a few past members are joining together today to wish YOU, Virginia, fearless leader of InStyle Stamps, a most wonderful and happy birthday surprise blog hop!!  One thing we are sharing is to tell you one place we'd love to take you if you were to come visit each of us.  If you were in my town, Virginia, I would take you to my favorite restaurant to eat Italian food... Barratta's.  This restaurant is sooooo well hidden in a residential area but there have been some super big celebrities that have found out about it and THEY go eat there.  After that... I'd take you to Cold Water Brewery where they serve the most AWESOME AWESOME chocolate layered treat/cake. OH MY GOSH!!!!   You would offer to clean the kitchen just for one more piece.. is it THAT good!!!!  Then I'd have to take you to Valley Junction where they have an awesome stamping/scrapbook store and we'd definitely buy way more than we needed. THEN, last but not least... I'd take you to MY Studio where we could create, stamp and color to our hearts desire!!!  We would have a BLAST!!!!

My tag was created using Violet!  I especially picked her out because 1) I played the violin for years...  2)  I LOVE purple and .... 3)  If I could play "Happy Birthday" to you, I would definitely do it on a violin! *smile*

I colored Violet using my Copic markers and mounted her on top of a ocean mist colored card stock which I ran through my Cuttlebug using the musical score to emboss it.  I rubbed some Distress Ink over the image to make it a bit more visible.

I also used the Distress ink to add some color to my white flower.  My "t" was glittered... looovee that bling! *smile*  I found some awesome fibers to use at the top of my tag and threw a yellow flower brad to the hole to bring out Violet's hair.

Since this is a Birthday Blog Hop, we can't leave you without a chance at a party prize! So here are the rules.

1. Start at the beginning of the blog hop with the letter H.
2. Comment on each Design Team's blog because they need a little love and increase your chances at the party prize.
3. Go to PaperYumness and wish Virginia a Happy Birthday.

The deadline to win a digital image is Sunday, July 18th at 8:00pm Pacific Time.

That's all you need to do! The prize???? Not one, but two! You might win either one by commenting on a blog. Good luck and hope you have fun all along the way!

Virginia... your next letter is "H".  Good luck on your special surprise birthday hop!!! *HUGS*
