Use It Tuesday Birthday Blog Hop!

Greetings!!

We have a little excitement this week at Use It Tuesday…you know why? It is our 1 year Blogiversary and we are celebrating with a blog hop and presents! (And cake with ice cream, too…please excuse the frosting on our keyboards…)

I am stop #8  on the hop. You should have arrived here from Sonya's blog. Be sure to stop by the entire design team’s blogs as well as the Use It Tuesday blog because we have hidden prizes all along the way!

Now, being we are the blog that encourages you to use your stash, we don’t usually do ‘prizes’ per say, but hey, this is a PARTY after all! And what is a party without presents?! (…and the aforementioned cake and ice cream!)

So, how can you win?
  1. Hidden along our hop are prizes on each of our design team member’s blogs! Leave each of us a comment and you will have an opportunity to win. Easy as that!
  2. Play with us! Link your creation to our challenge post using Inlinkz; one lucky participant will win a GRAND PRIZE package donated by our fabulous sponsors!
  3. You MUST be a follower of the Use It Tuesday blog to win!
As always, our winner will chosen by the Inlinkz Froggy. In order to win, you MUST mention that you are playing with us at Use It Tuesday, make a project that meets our guidelines, AND tell us what hoarded supplies you used! And…of course, the grand prize winner will be asked to guest design for us in an upcoming challenge!

Now, on to the challenge! This week is all about our 1 year blogiversary; we want to see a project that has to do with BIRTHDAYS! Simply link your creation to our challenge post using Inlinkz by Friday, Februrary 24th.

For my project, I am lucky enough to be sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.  If you're not familiar with Bugaboo Stamps, you must check them out!  They're fabulous and have some of the most hilarious and adorable digi stamps available.  I can't tell you how awesome they are with customer service either.  Wonderful company! 

For my project, I used the Make It Snappy - Happy Birthday digi.  It's such an adorable image, and fit right in with our theme today.  For my card this week I dug out some stuff I hadn't used in a while.  The white seam binding I've had for at least a year, the sentiment tag has been in my stash for at least five years, and the pink background paper I have had for almost two years.  Talk about hoarding, huh?


You have the chance to win the cute digi I used, from Bugaboo Stamps, by leaving me a comment with your contact information by February 24th. A winner will be randomly chosen, so good luck!


We want to thank our other FABULOUS sponsors, too! You can see their products along our hop so get hopping! The next stop is at Sami's blog.  Hope you play along! And eat some cake! It is calorie free today.

Happy blog hopping!

I like the color combination. Very nice card. Thanks for sharing. All the digi images I've been seeing this week really makes me want to learn more about them and give them a try. Any suggestions on where to go to learn about them and to find out what different web sites sell them?
