It's A Surprise!

It's a Surprise Birthday Hop for Monica Hunter! Monica is the owner of Hambo Stamps and today is her birthday. The Bacon Bits Design Team 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 Jeannie's blog, you are in the right place. Otherwise, start at the beginning with Deborah'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 21. 
Here is the hop order in case you get lost:
Deborah
Jane
Jeannie
My card today is made with one of Hambo's new releases: Big Giraffe (5116) and Age Spots (5115). It's no secret that I love giraffes, and this one is just adorable! I made a CAS design today, because I know Monica loves clean and simple designs! I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored in with Copic markers. The inside says "At least they're not stripes." My "spotty" designer paper banners are from American Crafts.

Happy happy birthday, Monica!! Now hop on over to
Kendra's for more birthday fun!
