a surprise birthday blog hop!

hello hello hello!

Today is a very special day! And in honor of this special day - the Newton's Nook Design Team is throwing a surprise birthday blog hop in honor of our fearless leader (also known as the creater, owner, designer and heart of Newton's Nook Designs) Jennifer!

Jennifer is one of the kindest, talented and most considerate person ever, and because of that (and a million other reasons!) we wanted to help make her day as special as she is!

So, without further ado, please follow along on this Birthday Hop and leave some love and birthday wishes for Jennifer! Who knows, there may even be a GIVEAWAY to one lucky person who comments along!*
*Spoiler alert - there is a giveaway! Ha! One lucky person will a stamp set of their choice from Newton's Nook Designs!  :D

My card today is a super fun birthday scene! 


i used Newton from a few different stamp sets, and it seems they're all getting into a little bit of i
trouble! ha ha! I used some thin twine to create the string for the balloon (from Newton's Birthday Bash), and the party hat wearing kitty is from Hanging Around, and i actually cut the paws so the string could go under them! (FUN!) and of course, the last bad little kitty is from the newly released Naughty Newton



all of the images were colored with copics! the cloud background was created with the cute little cloud from Hanging Around and some distress inks and water! and i really love how the twine wraps around the back of the card base!

Be sure to head over to the Newton's Nook blog where you will find all of the details! And check out all the awesome Design Team Blogs below to enter:
