Surprise Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Birthday Deborah!!! SURPRISE Blog Hop! Today is Deborah from Scrapping Mammas Birthday! Some of her awesome friends have decided to have a BIG SURPRISE BIRTHDAY HOP since we can't all be in the same place for a SURPRISE party! This is the next best thing!
This blog hop is a one day blog hop to wish a very special woman (fellow crafter) a very special Happy Birthday. So Happy Birthday Deborah (aka Scrapping Mama).
If you are coming from Jearise @ http://lorbysworld.blogspot.com/
 you’re on the right track. If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning HERE 
and hop along with us.We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and keeping it a secret from Deborah. Which wasn't easy! You will visit some amazing bloggers who want to wish Deborah the Happiest Birthday EVER! We've each created a card or something extra special JUST for her!You will see some lovely projects and even have a chance to win some blog candy.

Now Let's get this party started!!

I chose to make a card using some of Deborah's favorite things. Her favorite colors Pink, Yellow and Black, she also loves Dragonflies, Flowers, Polka dots and Dogs. I think I covered it all pretty well only thing missing is a dog  LOL . Happy Birthday Deb !!! Hope you like your card.

  I tried a new type card called a tent card. Used my gypsy but had to make some adjustments after cutting it Most of the paper is from my collection of 'scraps' ( have lots of those). I used stickles on the dragonfly Kraft card stock for the base and thee sentiment is from Emma's My creative Times stamp set.
Hope you enjoy my creation!!!
