DeNami Design Birthday Blog Hop


Welcome to your next stop on the the birthday inspiration express.  You should have come here from Wendy's blog.  She always has such wonderful projects to share.  If you didn't come from Wendy's blog and you would like to start at the beginning, just pop over to the DeNami Design blog for the list of participants.

Here is my project to inspire you today.


Who could resist the Penguin with Balloon stamp?  I stamped him three times and colored him using a combination of alcohol ink markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I framed him using the Small Dot Circle Frame.  I stamped the Mini Scallop Circle in the center of the fourth Small Dot Circle Frame.  I used a Making Memories looking glass embellishment for the sentiment in the center of the Mini Scallop Circle.  It is hard to see (looking at the larger image makes it much easier), but it says happy day.

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to comment.  Why you ask?  Because two lucky commenters will be chosen at random to win a $20 DeNami Design gift certificate just for taking the time to leave a comment!  One participant will also be chosen at random (design team ineligible) to win a third $20 gift certificate.  You have until 11:59  PST on Monday, March 12th to get your comments posted to be eligible to win.

The next stop for more birthday inspiration is Suzanne's blog.  I can't wait to see what she has waiting!
