SugarPea Designs 1st Birthday Bash Blog Hop


     At the beginning of last year I was blessed to be one of the original SugarPea Designs DT members.  Wendy Ramlakhan was just starting her new stamp line and I got to help introduce my card making friends to her fun line of stamps.
     It's hard to believe that a whole year has already gone by and SugarPea Designs is celebrating its first birthday.  Wendy has given me the honor of being able to join in a Birthday Bash Blog Hop to celebrate.


     I decided to use the Totes Ma Goats stamps set to create my card for the hop.  I also decided to add a bit of 3D effect with some paper tole.  Mr. Goat's face, ear, and bangs are all popped up on foam.  I love stitched dies and used several to create the background.  The fence was hand pieced and the sky is a watercolor wash.


     This card will be going to a close friend of ours at church that we fondly call Grouchy.


Wendy is offering a $100 Gift Certificate to someone who comments on all of the blogs in the hop so make sure you check out all the great SugarPea Designs projects the participants have to share with you.  Here is a list of all the stops on the hop.
