It's a Surprise HAPPY BIRTHDAY Blog Hop for Peggy!!


It's Peggy's special day at PaperWorks Co so the DT has been secretly planning this surprise blog hop to celebrate! You should have arrived from Cabio's beautiful blog but if you haven't please go to the PWCO blog for a full list of everyone participating today!

It's my normal post day but since we're taking over with the blog hop, I'm still going to show you how to create beautiful cards withOUT stamps - I have to say this has been fun & challenging for me! For my card, I used the fun & cute Echo Park Summertime collection to start. Then I found these gorgeous glitter chipboard alphas in my stash to spell out happy. They've been in my stash because even tho they are self sticking, I always find they fall off eventually - but no more thanks to a little dab of Helmar's Quick Dry 450! Those letters aren't going anywhere now.   - they were quite large so I dug out my Cosmo Cricket tiny type stickers to spell out birthday! I've been making my own stick pins so I added one I created with rainbow beads and a butterfly.

Anyway, I hope Peggy likes her card - I'm going to stick it in the post today! I didn't want to spoil the surprise. Now it's off to Danielle's darling  blog for even more birthday wishes!

I loved the way your card turned out.
I also was intrigued with the idea of making a card without a stamp.
I have ton of resources and I need to think about making a card or cards without a stamp.
