Time for BTC&G's Birthday Blog Hop!

Welcome to By The Cute and Girly's 3rd Birthday blog hop celebration!
If you have come here from Tammy's blog then you are on the right track, if not, you need to start from the beginning at Lora's blog.
The design team have all been busy making something to celebrate our 3rd birthday and we would love for you to visit us all to see what we made.

The blog hop rules are very simple, all you have to do is visit each of the design team members blogs and leave a comment on each one, then finish up at our challenge blog and leave a comment there to let us know you have finished the hop.

Your name will then be put in a draw to win one of the blog hop prizes.

If you also enter our challenge this month, you will also be put in the draw to win one of challenge prizes.

You have the whole month to enter and you can enter the challenge as much times as you like, as long as each entry is a different craft eg: 1 card, 1 scrap page, 1 altered item, 1 knitted item etc.

And as always, you can enter with any craft you like, from paper craft to baking and everything in between. If you made it yourself then you can enter is, it's as easy as that :)


The theme is "Birthdays" so it's a nice easy challenge and we have lots of prizes up for grabs from some great sponsors! Please check out the challenge blog to see all the prizes we have to give away!
Each design team member is featuring a different sponsor today, so you will see images or other products from a different sponsor being used on each of the dt blogs. We also have other sponsors on the challenge blog, so there really are lots of prizes to be won :)





The sponsor I am featuring is Pink Gem  and I have used their Keep Calm and Eat Cake digi to make a birthday card suitable for anyone who dreads birthdays and getting older.  Also tried to keep a Pink theme going ie cute/girly and pink with some gems!


I used the Sizzix Framelits Fancy tags die to cut out the image and an overlay of pink vellum.  Background is embossed with Divine Swirls folder and edging is made with EK punch.  Ribbon is from local craft shop and the flowers are made with Memory Box Honeysuckle spray die.

The next stop is Uta's blog.
Remember to leave a comment on this post and on all the other design team members blog hop posts for a chance to win one of the prizes. Then leave a comment on the challenge blog post to let us know you are finished the hop and your name will go into the prize draw.
