Happy Birthday (to me)!

Hello friends and welcome to the June blog hop with The Craft's Meow!  This month, we're featuring stamps from Mabelle R-O!  If you're here from Jennie's blog, you're in the right spot.  If not, head over to the TCM blog to get started!
I decided to use the Sweet Birthday set to make this fun tag as today is MY birthday!  Yep indeed, the big 4-3!  Can you believe it?  I know I sure can't.  I joke around that if MTV wanted to make a show about "16 and Pregnant", they could have the geriatric version starring me!  :)  All kidding aside, we are over the moon and can hardly believe that the little will be joining us in 2 short months! 

I started off with a large shipping tag and covered it with a lightly printed piece of paper.  I stamped the sentiment and stars onto the paper and then stamped the balloon strings.  I stamped and cut out the balloons from another piece of cardstock and popped them up slightly.  I found a couple of small, canvas pennants and stamped them with one of the flower images from the set and strung them with some twine.

Now for the fun stuff!  One lucky commenter will get a stamp set of their choice chosen from the comments left on all blogs including the store blog.  The comment deadline to be eligible for prize is
11:59 EST, Tuesday July 9th and the winner will be announced Wed, July 10th.  Also, today is the last day to receive a 20% discount on all orders. All you have to do is enter the code "July4thSale" at checkout to receive the discount. 


I sure hope you have a wonderful Sunday - I know I will!  The hubs has a day of surprises planned for me and I can't wait!

Next up is Jessica with more Mabelle R-O inspiration!  Thanks so much for visiting today!

Supplies:  Stamps (TCM), Tag (Uline), DP - Country Kitchen collection (Farmhouse), Ink - Silver, Gold (Encore), Real Red, Basic Black, Brocade Blue (SU!), Ribbon (my stash), Twine (Trendy Twine), Pennants (Maya Road)
