TGF Customer Blog Hop

Good day everyone!
I am excited to be participating, today, in The Greeting Farm's 3rd Annual Customer Blog Hop!

All of the participants are using TGF stamps and sharing either a holiday project or a general project...some of the more ambitious participants are probably sharing both!  I had hoped to do both but, given that it's the busiest time of year AND I got hit with a NASTY cold/flu this past week, I didn't manage to make a holiday project.  I do, however, have a birthday card that I made for a friend's 1 year old daughter. 

Here it is:

Unfortunately, as I was in a bit of a rush to finish this card, I forgot to add pearls or rhinestones to the tiara, OH NO!  Well, I still think it turned out to be pretty cute but, what a shame...
The sentiment on the inside read "Hope you have a royally wonderful birthday".  I just love that sentiment...I basically bought an entire 4x6 stamp set JUST for that sentiment!  
It was my first time using Princess No. 3 from The Greeting Farm and isn't she just ADORABLE?  I also used papers from Echo Park Victoria Garden and a die from Spellbinders Ribbon Banners.  The front sentiment is from a Recollections set that I bought at Michael's but, no matter what I did, I couldn't get it to stamp well...

I used this FABULOUS sketch from Iwona Palamountain aka. Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #41 as inspiration:

If you have already been hopping along, I hope you're having fun looking at everyone's fabulous creations!  If this is your first stop, I recommend that you go to the TGF Blog for the list of participants and hop is a large blog hop but, one VERY lucky hopper will win the ENTIRE JANUARY RELEASE from TGF!  That's a HUGE prize of 6 stamps sets!
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Christmas and thanks for stopping by my blog!
