Come Join Our Bloghop Birthday Party


Happy Birthday, Calypso!
  
Calypso is having a birthday today! We are so excited to share with you a Surprise Birthday Blog Hop!!! Every stop along the hop has a surprise birthday card or project for Calypso created by members of two Design Teams... Sentimental Sundays and Scribbles Designs.

Calypso keeps all of us so organized; is such an inspiration to all of us and also is right there with unfailing support and compassion for any of the team members. Her talents abound and we adore her!

Please join us in the (surprise)
Birthday Hop for Calypso 
and stop by her blog at the end to wish her Happiest of Birthdays!

Happy Birthday, Calypso!

Here is my card and the details. I hope that I haven't forgotten anything...

General Information:
  • Once again, I haven't had the chance to get this card into the mail. In fact, it is sitting right here beside Sandy's and Suze's cards, and oh there is also my cousin's birthday card that should have been mailed out three weeks ago. OMG I am so bad for getting them in the envelopes and mailed. I do hope that ALL you guys will forgive me. Please???!!! They will get out eventually, I promise!
  • Since this is another surprise birthday hop, I thought it would be neat to create a different kind of card for the occasion. So, I made the card into the shape of the image I used. In hindsight I really should have made it a bit bigger. At this point I'm hoping that it doesn't end up breaking open. You'll understand better when you see it opened up and see how narrow the adjoining area is. Additionally the 'wish' on the front is just a bit too big for the overall shape as well. But hey, it is supposed to be the thought that counts right?!

FRONT

Digital Image Details:
  • Hat: I have used the awesome birthday hat from Scribbles Designs. I coloured it in digitally and then printed it out and fussy cut it. You can click on the watermark below to go to the store page where you can purchase this versatile image. It's a great one and I've already got so much use from it!
#909 Birthday Cake & Hat
Sentiment:
  • This cool sentiment and the shooting star beneath it, were created using my Cricut machine and the Birthday Bash cartridge.

INSIDE

Digital Sentiment Details:
  • This cool sentiment is also from Scribbles Designs.  Click on the watermark below to take you to its page in the store. 
Other Details:
  • I ended up taking the hat shape and creating a template for the actual card base.  As mentioned earlier, it really should have been bigger so that the joining piece isn't quite so narrow.  I just hope it doesn't rip.
  • Yes, on hindsight I also should have either coloured or covered up the back of the 'pom pom' on the top of the hat but I had glued it all together before I realized it.

Now it is time to head on over to Cely's blog for the next project!
