Sandra Caldwell Birthday Blog Hop

We are celebrating the very talented Sandra Caldwell's Birthday 
(which happens to be TODAY!)with a birthday blog hop. 
Won't you please help us celebrate?!

We have each made a creation with images from Sandra's Etsy store.
If you arrived here from Delores Miller, YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!

I used Halloween Hippo for my card for Sandra.
 (It's in the  Babycakes Digis and Design Etsy Shop for just $1.00 until the end of July.  Use it yourself and enter the contest at Markers! Paper! Digis Facebook Group.  You might win!) 

I know it's not a traditional birthday card, 
but Sandra used to be part of a group of Halloween artists.  
I figured this image would be the perfect tip of the hat to her 
as a way to send some birthday wishes.  I bet she is one fine party girl!!
My card uses a Tim Holz embossing folder; the sentiment is from MFT and colored with Copics YR65, RV55 & YR04.  The "party animal" sentiment is created using Mama Elephant's Calli Letters stamp set and cut out with MFT's fishtail dies.  
My card design was inspired by Challenge #52 at Tag You're It!

Happy Birthday, Sandra.  I hope you are surprised and feel cherished.

So, next hop on over to Donna Mundinger and see her wonderful creation.
