A Very Special Birthday Blog Hop

It's a special day today as we are celebrating our crafty friend Ginger Ropp who is turning 65 today! Please join me, Kathy Clement, and Ginny Nemchak as well as Ginger herself as we each share a fun birthday-themed creation via a Birthday Blog Hop. All YOU have to do is leave us a comment on our blogs (and subscribe if you haven't already), wish Ginger a Happy Birthday, and then you'll be entered to win a give-away from each of us by random draw. I'll be announcing the winner on Tuesday, the 8th here and on my social media.

Ginny (Polly's Paper Studio)

Kathy (Kathy by Design)

Ginger (My Sisters Scrapper)


I created this super cute Double Gatefold Barn card for Ginger using Lori Whitlock's SVG file as described in the assembly video below.


I made additional barnyard cuties, grass, sunflowers and did some stamping to make it extra special. It's such an easy and fun card to create, so be sure to check out the video with some assembly tips PLUS bonus photos of Ginger and me at the end. (We've known each other quite a while now!)






Don't forget to leave a comment, wish Ginger a Happy Birthday, then visit the other designers and do the same. My give-away is a Fashion Forward Prize Pack! I'll draw a winner next Tuesday, the 8th.
