Stamping Bella Blog Hop-I have a SNEAK PEEK to show you!

Welcome to the Stamping Bella Birthday Bash Blog Hop!!! We're celebrating because on Monday, StampingBella.com turns three!!! You should have arrived from Amber's blog, but if you didn't then start at the beginning of the hop, Bloggabella. And let me tell you, it's worth hopping because there are THREE fabulous $100 gift certificates to Stamping Bella hidden along the hop. So be sure to leave some love along the way. Three lucky commenters will be randomly chosen from three blogs along the hop, but we're not telling you where the prizes are hidden. The winners will be announced on Bloggabella on Monday, Dec 7th.
Does this darling image look familiar? Well, it shouldn't, because this little Birthday Boy is a brand new image that will be released on Monday!!!! Be sure to visit Bloggabella on Monday to see all the new releases!!! Doesn't he look all set for the party?!? I couldn't be happier about this image...you see, the first three months of the year are major birthday months in my family, but mostly for boys and men. It's always so difficult to make manly/boyish cards, so this image is absolutely perfect!!!
I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch, MTSC50, for the layout. He's coloured with copics and I added just a little shimmer to the bows on the presents with my Spica glitter pens. The fun and bright patterned paper is October Afternoon Night Light, and I'm lovin' my MS star border punch!!!
The Birthday Bash Contest is still open until tonight (Dec 5th) at 10pm EST. There's a giant prize at stake there too so get your card into the contest for a chance to win. Read all the details here.

Now you're off to see what fabulous creation Christy has to share and here's a link to the Master List of hoppers in case you get lost or the chain breaks.

Thanks for hopping by!
