Hello! Hello! Hello! 
It's AAA Cards first birthday, and it's party time over at the AAA Cards Challenge Blog!  We are celebrating with our First Birthday Extravaganza Party Challenge and Blog Hop!!!!

The Birthday Card Game

There are incredible Sponsor Gifts & Prizes Galore. Link up your card at the bottom of THIS post to get more details and to play. See below for more info on our blog hop and the chance to win more prizes.

My Happy Birthday AAA Cards creation:


I sponged the colors of the AAA Cards banner on the top panel using PTI inks, on Winnie & Walter's Triangle Creative Screening.  

To add a little glitz for the occasion, I sprayed the stenciled panel with Heidi Swapp's gold Color Shine. I die cut the word "Happy" from PTI's Tipped Tops Die collection, and embossed the word "Birthday" from PTI's Wet Paint set. The final touch was a streamer from Winnie & Walter's Goldie Trim Cutaways.

Now on to the hop:

The BlogHop Comment Game:
There will be a Random choice winner from each blog host. All you have to do is leave a comment on each blog with a little birthday wish for a chance

I am so delighted and honored to be a part of this wonderfully creative, friendly, and supportive team.  This is my first Design Team experience, and it has been so positive, stimulating and challenging all at the same time.  In the short time I have been on the team, I have been learning and trying new things, mining old stash, and making new friends.  All good.
