Birthday Blog Hop

Birthday blog Hop - If you came here from Laralee's blog, then you are on the right trail. If you are just starting the go to Sew Many Challenges blog so that you don't miss any of the yummy projects from the rest of the team.

This image is Eris Birthday by Sew Many Cards. Isn't he the cutest? I colored Eris with Copics and did you notice his tail? It is embroidery floss that I threaded through a slit that I made. The Dp is from my stash.

I embossed some green card stock with a QuikCuts folder with leaves. I used some orange glitter tulle for my ribbon and topped it a flower. The sentiment is by Dreamer's Design. I finished it off with Studio18 gemstones. #8 sketch #13 ribbon

For my second card I used Halen and Teddy. I colored it with Copic's and added some Stickles to the flowers. The DP is by Roseart. This is a z fold card and the image is attached only on the left side. I added some daffodils that I cut off the stem and tied with a ribbon. I finished it off with some purple gemstones in two different sizes.

I get to give both images to one lucky winner, who I will draw from the comments left on this post. The Halen and Teddy also is the Freebie that is available at the store blog. You will end the hop there, so make sure you pick it up then.
The grand prize this week at Sew Many Challenges is a $15 Gift Certificate to the Sew Many Cards Store AND a Sick Bear image.
I would love to see what you are making with Sew Many Cards images and I am hoping that you will join the challenge this week.
Next on the hop is Karen, so head on over there after leaving a comment here.
