If you came through yesterday there were two links that did not work. I have since removed them from the list below. Everyone listed below has posted a card/project and they are WONDERFUL! Good luck and don't forget to link your own project for a chance to win some really wonderful prizes! Thanks! Mimi
Well, my big day is finally here and I'm thrilled you have chosen to have some fun with us! First of all, let me begin by saying Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I pray you will have time to spend with your family in some way. My family is all out of town this year, so I plan to "hook up" with them by phone or email. Today is my 60th birthday and I am having a hard time believing I can be that old - LOL! I have asked eleven crafty peeps to get things started, so let's get on with the fun.
For my card, I chose to use my new Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge. This was my first attempt at making flowers and I think they turned out okay. I love my Martha Stewart punches so I had to try out a new one that I purchased recently. I used a dark brown cardstock for the base of my card and I also used the brown with punch. I pulled out my Cuttlebug to add some interest on the cream layer. I used the CTMH cartridge to cut the oval, and scalloped oval, the flourish and the flowers. After assembling the flowers, I "lightly" touched my 2 way glue pen on some of the petals and used Stampin Up Dazzling Diamond Glitter to add a little sparkle. Then I added some brown pearls and white pearls to add a little dimension. The sentiment is a SU set that I had in my stash. It turned out great and made me "smile" so that was a good sign.
Are you ready to see more awesome creations? I feel so honored to have these talented ladies helping me celebrate my birthday. We have blog candy to give along the way. Some of the participants are giving away their own prizes but I have several things I will be sending out to winners. Here are the rules:
- Visit each of the blogs listed and leave a comment. You do not have to JOIN their blog as a follower, but I'm sure they'd love it if you do!
- Return to my site: www.mimi2trentdrew.blogspot.com and tell me you made it through the hop
- Use the Linky tool and link up your own BIRTHDAY CARD or Project!
I will use random.org to select the winners of our blog candy. I have stamp sets that have been donated by My Pink Stamper and My Creative Time along with other goodies I've been collecting. You have until Sunday November 27th, midnight EST to enter your project.

PS - I have just finished hoping through the line-up. I have deleted one link that are not working. That just means your chances of winning are even better :). Thank you again for sharing your Thanksgiving weekend with me! I can't believe the talent shared in this line-up. The cards, videos and tips are AWESOME! Have a blessed day!
