Make a Wish!


I'm starting this week off right - with a party!  A birthday party, to be exact.  Crafter's Companion USA is celebrating their 5th birthday all week long, and you are invited to join us!  Before I get to all the fun details about our hop and the prizes up for grabs, I'll share a bit about my card.


I colored Make a Wish Humphrey with my Spectrum Noir markers, and covered her wings with Yellow Stickles, for added sparkle.  All birthday girls should sparkle, right?  Here is a list of the markers I used:

Body: BG1, BG2, BG4
Dress: DR5, BP1, PP3
Wings: GB5, CT4, CT2, CT1
Star/Crown: CT4, CT2, CT1
Ribbons/Floor: DG3, DG1, PP1

Now, on to the stuff you really want to know about....goodies!   Each and every designer playing along today will be giving away this darling EZ Mount Popcorn the Bear Party Time stamp set:
Additionally,  there will be a grand prize $100 gift certificate awarded! To win, you have to sort of the secret phrase - each team member has a secret letter on their blog, and while you hop through you should write each one down, sort out the phrase, and then email it to Bindy (hint: if you hop in order, the phrase will be in order!).  At the end of the hop, Bindy will use random.org to draw a number, and that person will get the gift certificate!  You have until 12:00 PM PST on Friday, August 10 to leave your comments and send an email to Bindy.  You must also be a follower of the Crafter's Companion USA blog.   My secret letter is "h".

Here is the whole list of hoppers on this party train:
