Happy Birthday Gerda & a Surprise Blog Hop!


I am so lucky to be part of the StampFairy DT & able to use lots of Gerda's fabulous images.  As today is Gerda's birthday Jackie our DT leader has organised a *Surprise* blog hop to celebrate.  So "Happy Birthday Gerda, have a fabulous day & I hope you like our virtual birthday party!".  My image is "Lenny Cupcakes" as I (amongst many are providing the cake & you can never have too much cake!).  I did lots of paper piecing & it took ages (but you're worth it Gerda hun), used my cupcake border punch & finished off with a flower, gems, charm & greeting.
I hope you will join in the celebrations with us & one lucky commenter on my blog who sends birthday wishes to Gerda will win the gorgeous image that I used (please also include your email address when you comment so your image can be sent to you if you win).  How fab is that!  I you are joining in the Hop you should have arrived here from the  very talented Annette's blog & the next stop on the Hop is the wonderful Chrissy (you will get lots on inspiration on her great blog).

The Hop will run from 12.00 est today until Monday 1st of August, so you gotta be quick :)

The challenges:
Ellephantastic - Celebrations
Bling It On - Anything Goes
Dutch Dare - Birthday Time
Card Makin' Mamas - Food & Drink
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
I Love ProMarkers - Anything Goes
Fuzzy Wuzzy - Get Punchy (with an animal)
