It's a Surprise Birthday Hop!

Today is a birthday celebration for Jessica, owner of There She Goes.  A few of her friends have put together some special wishes for her in a surprise blog hop! Don't miss out on any of the wishes. The beginning of the hop starts at Angela's blog.  If you came here from Joy's blog, you are on track!

It's the weekend, and I am trying to stamp more CAS designs on weekends.  Layers upon layers is my usual style.  There is a reason, as this Thursday I will be having surgery on my left wrist and elbow for carpal tunnel syndrome.  Hurray! One-hand stamping! At least I hope I can swing it.  And I figure CAS will be the easiest way to do that. Fingers crossed that I can stamp at all!

In any case, here is my birthday wish for Jessica!  I used Thinking of You, the first TSG set that I bought during the first months of TSG's beginnings!

I stamped my images using Real Red, Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow and Green Galore markers (Stampin' Up!). I added my Clear Spica Glitter pen to the flowers and they are so sparkly, which my picture doesn't show.  Imagine it :)

A little Cuttlebug, a little red, orange and yellow Baker's Twine (Really Reasonable Ribbon), a tag, and Happy Birthday, Jessica! I will be thinking of you tomorrow on your special day.  Hope you were surprised~!

Now on the the amazing Julie Lacey.  I am always wowed by what she makes and I know you will be too~!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!
