Happy Birthday, Heather!

Paper Pretties is hosting a blog hop to celebrate a very special birthday -- our fearless leader, Heather has a birthday today!

If you are arriving here from Jennifer's (Glitter in My Hair) blog, then you are heading in the right direction.  If you are just joining the fun, be sure to start at Cindy's (Cindy Haffner's Corner) blog so you don't miss a single celebration!

All the Paper Pretties gals made a card and/or goodies for Heather to let her know how much we appreciate her hard work with the new and improved Paper Pretties store and to  express how much we enjoy our time with the Design Team.  My goodies for Heather included the 'Everyday Lily' card:

Stamps:  Paper Pretties 'Everyday Lily'.  Cardstock:  Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Papertrey white, Basic Grey 'Phoebe'. Ink:  Memento Black, Kiwi Kiss, Copics.  Accessories:  rectangle, labels, and oval Nestabilites, chocolate satin ribbon.

Accompanying it was a coordinating Post-It holder (PaperCraft Planet tutorial HERE) for all those  inspirations that strike on the go:



And also a decorated chocolate bar because chocolate is a cure-all for stress and cardmaker's block, right?  This was my first attempt at a 'Pull Up Treat' (SCS tutorial HERE) and it turned out to be an easy and fun technique.  Pull on the bow and up pops the chocolate!


Next stop on the birthday blog hop is Pam's (The Stamping Addict) blog.

And don't forget to stop by Heather's (The Best in Life) blog to wish her a very happy birthday!!
