Happy Birthday, Korin!


Welcome to a surprise birthday hop in honor of Sweet 'n Sassy's owner Korin Sutherland!

We're a day early with a very special birthday surprise....tomorrow is Korin's actual birthday! A group of her friends are getting together today for a fun early birthday party, since tomorrow is the fantastic April Release Blog Hop for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, and we didn't want to take the spotlight from that. After all, our sweet girl deserves her OWN day in the spotlight! So please join us as we celebrate Korin's birthday a little early! After all - you can never have too much celebration, can you?!?!

If you've arrived on my blog from Kim's blog, you are right on track for our special birthday hop!  If not, please start at the beginning (Taylor's blog) so you don't miss out on any of the special projects we've prepared for Korin's special day.

I created this 3 3/4" x 5" card in honor of Korin's special day using one of April's new stamp sets - Special Boy Cocoa for the Cocoa mouse image as well as the sentiment. (more on this new set tomorrow!)  The ticket image and sentiment in it are from last month's Ticket Sentiments.  The stars are SNSS's star dies - love all the shapes that come in this collection!

Card Details
Stamps: Special Boy Cocoa; Ticket Sentiments (SNSS)
Ink: Versafine; PTI

Card stock: SU; PTI; Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe patterned
Other: Circle punches; SNSS star dies; PTI notebook die; Copics; Paper piercer; Tim Holtz ruler; SU clip; red twine from The Twinery; lace

Below is the whole birthday party train....prepare yourself for some fantastic cupcakes and ice cream from these talented ladies!!  If you're following along in order, next up on the hop is my talented friend Julie!

Jessica Fick (you are here!)

And feel free to leave Korin some early birthday love, either on her blog, her Facebook page, or the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Facebook page!

Happy Hopping and happy birthday, Korin!!  We love you!
Jessica
