Shawnee and Z'sBirthday Bash Hop

Welcome to the Birthday Bash Blog Hop, January 12!! Today is Zenita aka Scrappinwith’Z’s 50th Birthday and Shawnee’s Birthday is Monday so they decided to throw themselves a Birthday party and invite some of their friends along!! To help celebrate Jen’s Digi Stamps and Scrapbook Stamp Society has graciously gave us some digis to give away to a couple of our commenter’s!! Plus Chriss has some Washi tape for another commenter. So please leave a comment at each of our friend’s blogs for your chance to be a winner. Zenita is our hostess today (since she’s the oldest birthday girl)…lol so we hope you have started at her blog,  If you came from Sher you are on the right track, but if you just came to visit with me please go back and start with our hostess.
First I want to say Happy Birthday to Shawnee and Zenita...Hope your day is wonderful for both of you! Now on to my project: Zenita has a guest speaker on her blog today, and it is all about her experience with cancer, and to bring cancer awareness, so I did my birthday card in pink.

For this card, I cut out a circle card at 5 inches,  from the Cricut Art Philosophy  cartridge.  Than for the top of it I cut out the Tag image on page 35 of the Wrap it Up cartridge.  I cut both the tag black out (in green) and the Tag in Pink.
To decorate the card I used  butterflies from the Art Philospophy cartridge, 3 Girl jam ribbon. pink rhinestones, I chipboard heart that I inked with Tim Holtz Pickled  Raspberries ink, Hearts and a pice of crocheted lace from my stash.  Papers are from Bazzil and K&Co.

On the inside I stamped with Stampin Up happy Birthday stamp and The Pickled Raspberry.

Thanks for stopping by to celebrate with us today and please keep on hopping to see

what Chriss has created for your enjoyment!!

Happy crafting.....Cathy
