It's My Birthday Blog Hop

Woowhooo.........are we ready to party? Welcome to Debbie's "It's My Birthday" Blog Hop.
If you've come from Kathy's Blog, Paper Fanatic, then you're on the right track. If you just happened upon my blog then welcome! Perhaps you'd like to join the celebration from the beginning, starting at our sweet host and Birthday Girl, Debbie's Creativity Heals. Wouldn't want you to miss a thing, There is so much great talent to be seen today! We have a phenomenal sponsor too, Picture Keeper.They have been kind enough to give each of us a 4GB Picture Keeper to give away to a lucky follower. How can you participate? I'll give you the details shortly! 
This is my very first Blog Hop and I can't thank Debbie enough for including me in her celebration!
 Our assignment was to create a project using a Birthday theme so I chose to start off the blog with what else but  a birthday card. I am fairly comfortable with making cards but with this blog hop I wanted to challenge myself a bit more and move out of my comfort zone so I tried a few new things that I will show you over the next 5 days. Rumor has it Debbie likes purple so , purple it is!
