HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZOE!!




HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZOE!!!

To commemorate this joyous occasion, we're so excited to bring you a Birthday Blog Hop disguised as a Christmas Blog Hop!! We wanted to celebrate Zoe's Birthday in style so there are lots of inspiration, prizes, freebies and even a gallery album for you to express your own birthday greetings. This is one hop you don't want to miss and it only goes from now until October 12th!

The general theme for this hop is Christmas and what fun would a hop be without some new images?! Zoe has released some fabulous new holiday themed images and they are a must on anyone's holiday list - but the best part is you get 15% off ALL the Christmas digis from now until Sunday, October 2nd.  Click on this link HERE to see them all and the discount will be automatically deducted from the cart. Please be aware the discount is only for this week even though the blog hop is for two weeks - so make sure to grab them at this sale price while you can!

Before we get to the hop, there's more details and a surprise in order... Everyone in this blog hop is giving away Blog Candy!!  Whoohoo!! You'll have two weeks, until October 12th, to visit each member in the hop below and winners will be announced on Friday, October 14th on their individual blogs.  Feel free to grab the badge below and display it on your sidebar to spread the word about Zoe's Birthday and Blog Hop!


My blog candy !!!



I'd ask if you're ready for some inspiration yet, but wait... we've got yet another surprise for you!! We contacted one of Zoe's artists (S.H.) who also wanted to participate and drew us this gorgeous party girl for the occasion. Thank you!!





This is "Party Girl Zoe" and isn't she ca-ute! We wanted to make sure everyone was included in our celebration so we're giving away Party Girl Zoe as a freebie to everyone who wants to join in and spread some birthday cheer!! All you need to do is create a new project using a Make it Crafty image or chippies and upload it into the gallery HERE by October 12th. Then email  Barbara, at ForgottenScraps@gmail.com with a link to your project to claim her!

Now are you ready for some Christmas inspiration? Grab a cuppa, sit back and relax, and get ready to enjoy a plethora of inspiration from the design team. 
I used these gorgeous naughty elves from MIC called Crackerd Elf and they are available as digis from the store .   The paper is Kaisercraft  Dear Santa, the sentiments from Whimsy.  And I made a card for Zoe too, with who else but Zoe Celebrates!  

Happy Birthday Zoe!!!!!!!!!!


We hope you've enjoyed the hop and make sure you head on over to Zoe's personal blog and wish her a Happy Birthday! Grab the Christmas Blog Hop badge and display it on your sidebar to spread the word about Zoe's Birthday and Blog Hop! Until then, happy coloring!

Hi Oh I just love your babies, I haven't been to your blog before and your dogs are adoreable. I lost my Bishon Frise in January and still really miss him. Thank you for such a wonderful naughty or nice card I am finding so many ideas for this stamp on the hop. Congratulations.

MaRyKaY said...

fabulous cards. very good coloring on them. this hop is great tonight. although I have to admit it took me a while to get to them for I was checking out the hounds. I have 3 yummy doggie's at my house and wouldnt trade a one spill, hairball, flea, dirt, unwanted licks, etc, etc. wouldnt trade it for nothing in the world.
Thanks for sharing

TheKraftyKow said...

This is so not fair lol. I have to finish my fancy dress dog costumes. So far I have made an Elvis and King one but still have to make Santa, Princess, Lion, Hotdog and Witch to start and if time more but how do I do that when I keep jumping to blogs so full of talent and fun.

I absolutely love your card and the elves remind me so much of my dog and cat somehow lol.

Patricia St Martin said...

Hug, Pat
