Birthday Bloghop


Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday Dear Gerda
Happy Birthday to You.

Today is an exciting day for us at StampFairy because today is our dear designer Gerda's Birthday.
We've  been a little bit sneaky and have secretly organized a Virtual Birthday Party! So come join the fun and party with us as we celebrate her big day.

If you have arrived here from Sharon's blog and her gorgeous creation then you are in the right place. If not, I suggest that you hop back to the StampFairy blog so that you can start at the beginning, you won't want to miss a thing.

For my card I have used one of the new images from the Lenny Music collection. After all what is a party without music right. These images are just so sweet.
The card includes all sorts of girly, feminine touches like the glitz and sparkle of the background papers to the gorgeous arrangement of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Tucked in behind is the sheet of music for the song. I think that it just might be
Happy Birthday to You!

That's right Gerda, this one is for you! I hope that you have a great day full of good things.

For all of our followers,  what would a party be without presents. For a chance at winning some StampFairy images of your own, be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way. On Tuesday we will each draw a name at random from all of the entries and that lucky person will win the image that we have used.

One more thing, don't forget to stop by the StampFairy blog and send Gerda your best  wishes.
Thanks for stopping by, your next stop is Lisa who I am sure will have something wonderful in store for you.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
