Jo's Scrap Shack's 5th Birthday Blog Hop Celebration!!!




Hello Friends!!!!
WOW! Get ready because we have some amazing things in store for you for the next two days!!! Today starts Jo's Scrap Shack's 5th birthday!!! I know right? Can you believe we are here again to celebrate another year? Wow, where did 5 years go? I have to say that I am truly blessed. I know many of you have heard me say this before, but I truly would not be here today if it weren't for all of you!! I tried twice prior to this to start a blog and failed so miserably! Something told me to try again. What is that saying, "if at first you don't succeed, get back up and try again"? or something to that effect. ..well that is what I did and look at me now!! Wow, five years! THANK YOU to all of you for your loyalty, dedication and friendship. You are all a huge part of my heart and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. So before I go getting all mushy on ya, are you ready for some amazing inspiration?? It is my bloggy birthday and you are all invited!!! And Guess what??? I am even giving my birthday presents to you!!! Are you ready to try and win some awesome prizes??? Well than awesome! I have 19 amazing and talented designers ready for your visit! I have several awesome sponsors, some of which; are among the top companies in the industry! So share this news with your crafty friends, grab your favorite beverage and let's get this party started!!!! Here is what you need to do.. 

1. Start here on Jo's Scrap Shack and at the bottom of this post, I will direct you to the next person's blog on the hop. Each designer will continue to direct you to the next person along the hop but should you get lost, I also have the line-up listed at the bottom of the post so you can always jump back on where you left off. 
2. As you are visiting these amazing designers, make sure to leave them some comments and become a subscriber to their blogs. We don't want you to miss out on their amazing work after today!
3. Share this birthday celebration blog hop with your crafty friends so that they too, can get in on the fun and have a chance to win some prizes too!

You will have until 11:59pm (eastern standard time, USA) on Monday, May 8th to complete the two day hop. All winners will be announced the next day on Tuesday May 9th. All winners will be chosen randomly from various designers blogs, so make sure you leave comments on each blog for more chances to win!

I get asked this question every year so I will clarify so there is no confusion. "Do you need to be a follower or subscriber to win?"  Yes. In order to be eligible to win any of the prizes during these next two days, you must be a subscriber to all the designer's blogs as well as Jo's Scrap Shack.  


To start off the celebration, I have a cute card that I made to celebrate my special day! And it is a special day for all of you because you walk away with my birthday presents!! :)    Here is the card I made, is she not adorable or what??? 


I used the adorable Yum Yum Sophie image by Little Blue Button Stamps.  She was colored with copic markers and has some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen on her for the shimmer. Also a few white highlights from my white gel pen. I created a chalkboard and used a stamp from My Creative Time for the "It's Your Day", stamped in HA Unicorn Ink. The layers were die cut using dies from My Favorite Things from some DCWV glitter paper. The green layer was a piece of snow glitter paper that I colored with a copic marker. The lace border is also a die from My Favorite Things. Adhered to an A2 white card base and added a few sequins to complete this card. She is adorable right? Love her!


   

Okay now it is time we start the hop but before I send you off, I thought I would show you who our fabulous sponsors are for this celebration and how very generous they are! I cannot thank my sponsors enough for their generosity this year!!!!  Here they are in no particular order:
