A Birthday Surprise Blog Hop for Bella Blvd's Stephanie Hunt


Good morning and welcome to the last stop of a very special birthday blog hop for the fabulous Stephanie Hunt, the brains and creative juice behind Bella Blvd.

We thought it would be fun to wish her Happy Birthday in a BIG way by having each of the participating bloggers create a birthday card especially for Stephanie for her special day. There are 26 of us participating in this hop to spread a little bit of birthday cheer and to wish a Happy birthday to you, Stephanie! We hope that it's a great day for you!

If you are following along in this hop you should have started at this morning at the Bella Blvd blog where hopefully Stephanie has found a wonderful surprise waiting for her in the form of this blog hop.

Simply follow the links on each blog in the hop so that you don't miss anything.

AND, since we are doing random giveaways as well you REALLY don't want to miss any of the blogs or the card inspiration found at each stop along the way. I'll tell you more about that in a minute.

If you just happened upon my blog and you haven't seen all of the other cards before mine, please head on over to the Bella blog where all of the fun begins. You should have arrived here at my blog from the blog of Wendy Wagner.

It is such a fun thing for me to be a part of this hop and I am so happy to be a member of the design team at Bella Blvd. Thank you to Stephanie for giving me this opportunity!

Here is the card that I created using one of the most popular Bella papers, this cupcake patterned paper from the Sweet Celebration collection. It was brought back by popular demand because it was so cute!


I just love the bright, cheery colors and patterns of the Bella collections. I'm glad that this cute cupcake paper has made a reappearance! Isn't it so fun? 

Now, I mentioned earlier that there will be some giveaways during this hop, right? 

Even thought it's Stephanie's birthday, we have some gifts for a few of you lucky readers as well! We know how generous and giving Stephanie is and we know she would never have a fun blog hop without a few giveaways up for grabs, too. We got permission from Robin, who works alongside Stephanie in the office, to pick TEN lucky winners who will each receive a Bella Blvd collection. All you need to do to be entered in the random drawings is to leave Stephanie your birthday wishes in the comment section. You have lots of opportunities to up your chances since you can leave a comment on each blog you visit as you go through the blog hop. There are 26 blogs, plus the Bella Blvd blog, for a total of 27 chances to get your name in the pot. We will randomly choose winners from 10 randomly chosen blogs and announce them on Friday!  

What do you think of that? 

Pretty cool, huh?
Don't forget to leave a comment here for your chance to win a collection from Bella Blvd and make sure that you leave a way for us to contact you if you're one of the winners. If you'd like to, head on over to Stephanie's blog to leave her some birthday wishes there, too. 

We hope that you have enjoyed our little hop today and that you've found all kinds of card inspiration to go and create some of your own cards for someone you love. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!
