Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is Celebrating!

Hello and welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Birthday Blog Hop!  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is so excited to be celebrating four wonderful years! Being a part of this amazing team is SUCH an honor, and it brings me so much joy!

A fantastic group of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps design team members past and present, along with some special friends, have put together a fabulous Birthday Blog Hop to kick off a whole month of fun.  The list is long, so the hop will take place over three days - feel free to take your time visiting each blog! You have until 11:59pm EST November 9th to leave comments on as many blogs as you can.  On Saturday, November 12th Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will announce FOUR winners (chosen at random from comments on random stops along the hop); each lucky winner will receive a prize pack valued at $40.

Want to see what I created for today's festivities?  Take a look!
I had plans to make a couple more projects, but strep throat has made a comeback in my house, so I didn't have as much time as I wanted.  This card doubles as my sample for today's Clean and Simple Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers.  This week it's a sketch challenge, based on a card I made awhile ago - how fun!  I absolutely HAD to ink up my new favorite set in the world, the just-released Snowflake Flourish. If you don't own it yet, you need to!  I thought this sentiment was really great for celebrating four fabulous years of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps :)

I said to my daughter, who was cuddled up on the couch nursing some gingerale and watching a movie while I made this, "I'm going to make a card, and it's gonna have snowflakes on it....what color should they be?" Without missing a beat, she replied, "Pink, duh!".  And that's where the color scheme for this card came from.  Genius, that little one of mine!

Your next stop on the hop is Kim Schofield, but just in case there are any hiccups, here is the whole list of celebrants on this party train:


Happy hopping, and thanks for celebrating with us!

Supplies: 
Stamps: Snowflake Flourish (SNSS)
Card Stock: Pixie Pink (SU); Neenah (White)
Ink: Pixie Pink, Tempting Turquoise (SU)
