Aloha and Happy Birthday Reenee!!
Happy Birthday Reenee! Or, as we say on Maui - Hau'oli la Hanau! (it seems appropriate, given the card I created for Reenee). Reenee, co-owner of Clear and Simple Stamps is celebrating her birthday today and a group of special friend, past and present CSS Design Team members are getting together with a very special Blog Hop in Reenee's honor! Hop along for some birthday fun, inspiration, a fabulous prize for one lucky winner (details at the end of this post) and a special 15% off sale so everyone can celebrate right along with us!! (just enter coupon code birthday15 when checking out to receive the discount).
Now, as for the hop - if you made it here from Heather's Blog, then you're on the right track. If you just stumbled onto my blog first, you'll want to head back to the beginning of this special birthday hop and start at Clear and Simple Stamps.
Now, how about a look at the card I created just for Reenee?
The Aloha / Surf theme seemed appropriate since it's coming to her all the way from Maui! LOL. I used one of my favorite CSS stamp sets, Surf - coloring each of the four surfboards with Copics to match my patterned paper. The "aloha" sentiment is from the same set. I also used some Dish All the Dirt Brown cardstock and Kraft Like a Rockstar cardstock on this card - CSS cardstock is some of my favorite! The patterned paper is printed digi paper from the I Like Love You digi kit by Dani Mogstad (Sweet Shoppe). Some brown grosgrain and zig-zag machine stitching were all the embellishment needed to finish it up! Sweet and Simple - just how I like it!
Now, be sure to head on over to the next stop along the hop, Susan Raihala, to see what kind of fabulousness she's created!
Now, I know you're all wondering about those PRIZES I mentioned earlier, right? Well, the powers that be at Clear and Simple Stamps have picked out a few of Reenee's favorite products and will send them out to the lucky winners. Each package will be valued at $50! In order to quality for the prize, participants must leave a birthday wish for Reenee on the CSS facebook page and / or the CSS blogpost. TWO winners will be chosen - 1 from facebook and 1 from the CSS blog!
Have fun! Below is a list of all Hop Participants with links to their blogs. Enjoy.
And Happy Happy Birthday Reenee!! We love you!
