Happy Birthday, Monica!

Scroll down one post for the Digi Design House Back to School Blog Hop!

It's a Surprise Birthday Hop for Monica Hunter! Monica is the owner of Hambo Stamps (and my good friend who offered me my very first Design Team spot!) and tomorrow is her birthday. A few of us got together and decided to throw a little surprise party for her, and we would like you to join us! 

If you arrived here from Nora Anne's blog, you are in the right place. Otherwise, start at the beginning with Jenn's blog so you don't miss out on any party fun. Every birthday has to have presents, and this one has one for you! One random hopper that completes the hop and comments on each blog will receive a Hambo Birthday surprise! The winner will be announced at the Hambo Hoedown on Wednesday, August 17. 
Here is the hop order in case you get lost:
Judy Rozema (you are here!)


My little 3 x 5 card is made with lots of love and a little adorable bee that is one of my favorite Hambo stamps! You can see Tiny Bee - 3114 and Happy Bee-Day - 3104 here. Happy Birthday tomorrow, Monica! I hope it is BEE-yoo-tee-full!

Now on to my lovely friend, Bonnie Sharp, where she will continue the party!
Don't forget to leave a comment to party with us!
