Happy Surprise Birthday Suzanne Blog Hop!

07:00


Hi Crafters,
welcome to Suzanne's Surprise Party Blog Hop! It is Suzanne from So Suzy Stamps' birthday today and we wanted to celebrate this wonderful, sassy lady that we all know and love. I decided to gather up her best crafty friends plus her former and current design teams and party party while she is still sleeping (and hopefully getting served breakfast in bed....hint hint Stephan!). So happy birthday to one of my crafty besties and I wish you nothing but success and happiness this year!


Now for a funny story. I have a confession....I hate to admit this, but it happens. Now and again, I make a dud card, like something very uninspiring. Now and again, I also make three in a row...I was trying to come up with the perfect card for Suzanne and my mojo sucks at the moment so I recycled a card for the hop. HOWEVER, I will show you my original so you can all have a laugh and Suzanne I am sure is much happier that I posted a recycled card from my blog - one of my favourite So Suzy Birthday cards I made using the Flower Flourish and Birthday Wishes stamps :) And Suzanne, I hope that story made you giggle.
Ok now that I look at it, it's not that bad, but I want nothing but the best for today :)
We have a bunch of prizes to giveaway for Suzanne's special day (Suzanne btw. you get nothing but this hop lol) so everyone wish Suzy a happy birthday and leave a comment on each blog to win:

  21. We are our own worst enemies when it comes
    to deciding to love a card we've just made.
    they never seem to measure up to our
    expectations. Both cards are great.
    Do love the first card - the colors blend
    together so well and the white really pops.
    thanks for sharing.
    Happy birthday, Suzy
