Today is the last day to enter my current giveaways…a Starbucks giveaway to celebrate the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and a watercolor giveaway showcasing the awesome Daniel Smith watercolors! Hope you’ll check them out! ?
Good morning! I’ve got a special post today!
The design team ladies of The Ton are celebrating Effie’s birthday with a surprise birthday party blog hop! Effie’s birthday is actually tomorrow but we decided to celebrate a day early! So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR EFFIE!! I hope this hop makes you smile!! 🙂
A few days ago I realized that I haven’t made a shaker card in a couple of weeks (the horror!!) so I decided I definitely needed to break out my gorgeous gilding from The Ton in Effie’s honor! I heat-embossed the Rose Garden cling background stamp with gold tinsel embossing powder and then colored it with zig clean color real brush markers. I stamped the sentiment from Hey Foxy onto the frame of my shaker and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. I used a variety of red, pink, and clear sequins and red, clear, and gold beads to fill my shaker! Look at all that sparkly goodness!! 😉 Nobody does sequins and beads like Effie!
Anyway, are you wondering how you can help celebrate Effie’s birthday?! She’s hosting a challenge for National Craft Month and we’d love to see a ton (no pun intended) of entries come in this weekend! You can find more details about the challenge here!
And now it’s hop time! Here are the rest of the stops on the hop! Head over and see what my crafty friends have created for Effie’s birthday!! 🙂
Thanks so much for visiting and have a fabulous day!
