Happy Birthday, Kris!

It's Krista Palakiko's birthday today and a few of us are throwing her a surprise birthday blog hop. I am your first stop but please stop by the Lollipop Crafts first to see a list of some of Kris' friends participating. Oh, did I mention SURPRISE PRIZE?? Yup, there is a surprise prize for one random winner who completes the hop!

All you need to do is hop along to each friend’s blog, leave some love, then head back to the Lollipop Crafts blog and let us know you completed the hop. Who knows maybe along the way some of Kris' friends might be giving away RAKS of their own, so make sure you stop and give some love to everyone. The winner will be announced on Sunday, March 18th.

Here is my card for Kris! Kris loves blue so I tried my best to incorporate some blue on this card! I used my new My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Hoody Doody papers. I LOVE LOVE this pad! I know my new year resolution was to spend less on crafty goodies and I really tried hard. But I couldn't resist getting a few new 6x6 paper pads! Okay, well may not just a few. LOL I ordered 14 pads! Plus, I have been getting A LOT OF beads from Michael's! I guess I better try to be good the rest of this year! LOL

Anyway, the mini yo-yo was from Amy! I LOVE these! I just wish I have time to work on some myself! I have the yo-yo maker for like over a year already and I still have open it! I tend to buy a lot of stuff and put them in storage! LOL Are some of you guys like me? hehe

I used my March sketch for this card. If you still haven't heard, I am hosting a monthly sketch challenge on my blog! I started in February. It was a spur of a moment thing. I hope I can keep it up! LOL

Anyway, your next stop is TAMMY! Don't forget to hop over to Lollipop Crafts for the master list of participants! Good luck, everyone!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and for celebrating Kris' special day with us!
