Jillian's Blog Hop Day 4 - Birthday Card For Jillian

Welcome to Jillian's Birthday Blog Hop!

*Be sure to scroll down a few posts for my 500 follower giveaway*

We are so glad you are here! If you came from My Favorite Blog you are on the right track.  If you just happened here by chance and want to start from the beginning, please go to the beginning at Deanne's Creative Juice. For those of you who don't know who Jillian is, I think you'll want to know her. Go to her blog for her own hop at  She is turning 12 years old and already has made for herself an amazing business!  She has some of the best stamp sets I've seen.  In fact, I went over there a few nights ago and bought 4 sets of her stamps because she's a smart chick who created phrases for particular Cricut cartridges which I really need!  I do have some awesome ones from a few of my other favorite blogs, but Jillian is just 12!!! OMGosh!

For this awesome hop, we have four straight days of birthday fun lined up for you all.  Each day, each blog is going to post a new project and there may be some blog candy involved. ;)  Am I doing blog candy, you ask???  Well, OF COURSE!!!  What would a hop be without some fun goodies?  All you need to do is leave a comment below and please become a follower if you are not.  You don't have to comment each day, but if you do, you have more chances to win the blog candy I'll be giving away after the hop is over.  This hop goes from June 10th through June 13th.

Every participant is linking their project back to the hostess' blog.  Bloggers will vote on their favorite projects.  CLICK HERE to vote for the project you believe deserves to win a new Cricut cartridge:) If you like any of my projects best, PLEASE be sure to vote for me.  I'd greatly appreciate it because I really want to win the cartridge being offered!  Thanks for taking the time to do so each day.  :0) (If you haven't seen yesterday's project, please go down one post to check it out and vote on it if you like it.)  I have been unable to link yesterday's and today's post so please come back and click on the "Click Here" link again.  I'll try to get it fixed by tomorrow morning.

Today's post is an easel card I made for the Birthday girl herself!  Jillian, I hope you like it.  It will be on the way to you tomorrow. :0)  For the deets see below.

I saw this awesome sticker from Creative Imaginations and just knew it was perfect for Jillian.  There's way more to her than meets the eye!  I didn't focus a ton on the birthday aspect because I wanted her to be able to display this and look at it to remind her how special she is.  I used some fun bling from Creative Charms, Flowers, Stickers and pop dots.  Background teal cardstock is from my stash.  Purple glitter paper is from DCWV.  I inked all the edges with an awesome deep purple Studio G ink pad. For more details feel free to ask!

Thanks for your patience today!  Sorry this is up so late.  Don't forget to get your votes in as today is the last day to vote.  I'm going to post this card now.

I hope to enter this into some challenges and will post them at the bottom of this post when I do.

Thanks so much for hopping with us, now be sure to head on over to Funky Cards  to check out what Madison has in store for us today!  She makes some great projects!

Here is the blog list!

Don't forget to leave a comment and become a follower for a chance to win my blog candy (fun tags, stickers, accents and rub-ons from Colorbok)!  1 comment per day please. :0)  If you are unable to leave a comment b/c Blogger has been acting up, try using Google Chrome or a different Internet browser to open my blog in.  That should do the trick.  You don't want to miss out!

Jillian also has a hop going on over at her Blog! Head over and see what's going on there. Tell her that you came from Deanne's Blog Hop and give her some birthday love.

Hi, Amy! Long post, huh? And I thought I was the Quen of verbosity! LOL! Your card is awesome! You did a fantastic job on it and I'm quite sure that there's a lot of truth in that sentiment. Looks like you're going to have a really awesome giveaway. I'll be on the lookout for sales, blog hops, etc. for you as often as I can remember. I love winning (not of the Charlie Sheen variety though) too. I had a great time participating on this hope with you and I hope we can stay in touch from time to time.

Take care of yourself!
