Busy Beauties Boutique Release Day + Bog Hop!

What an exciting day for me -- First, it's my daughter Victoria's 11th Birthday! She's my joy, my miracle, my angel, my shadow :) I'm so proud of the beautiful girl she has grown into and thank the Heavenly Father every single day for her :*)
****Happy Birthday, Victoria! Muah! Mommy loves you soooooo much!****

And it's also new digi release day at the BBB!! The images are SO STINKIN' CUTE!! It was hard to chose which ones I wanted to showcase so I just let my creativity get to work (and one is still a work in progress!) Also, there is a blog hop with a grand prize winner but we kindly ask you to leave a comment on each blog as you hop - you will be glad you did! :) Please start HERE at the beginning of the hop and see what the lovely Grace has for you to see! If you are reaching me from the beginning, guess what - I'm the caboose! That's right, you are finished hopping! :)

First up, introducing ....... Stick figure reindeer! Isn't he just the sweetest! He just melted my heart when I saw him :) I went with another elongated card - these have quickly become my favorite to make! I just invented a layout that looked like it matched, lol, and voila! He's avaiable for you to buy in the store TODAY!!

I also have the new frilly cupcake for you to see ~ darling, isn't it! I let it be the center of the birthday card which has layers and layers upon layers .... kinda like a cupcake should! (tee hee!) It's very versatile ~ could even be a holiday cupcake :)

I also made them in a smaller form to make a set of birthday mini cards (3 x 3) with matching envies ..... perfect for a "grab and go!"

And lastly, I made some gift card holders using these sweet Gingerbread boy and girl! I made one of each, one using more winter masculine colors for Gingerboy and one girly girly pink (even with pink frosting :) for gingergirl! I will show these in detail tomorrow since I really need the entire page to show you from start to finish but at least you can see them finished :)

Thanks so much for stopping by -- I hope you liked the hop and get the chance to stop by all the blogs and the store after you are finished hopping! :) Have a blessed + beautiful day :)

(Deets to follow asap!)

    Happy Birthday Victoria! Your mom is the best ~ but I'm sure you know that.

    Kelly love - what great projects and cards. I love all the layers on the cupcake card. It's an absolute visual treat but I have to say I think the reindeer is the best. He just makes me smile each time I see him!

    Hugs to you!

  8. Wowza Miss Kelly you really ended our hop with a BANG! I'm in LOVE with everyone of your creations. There is no way I could pick a favorite, so please don't make me! :D.

    Wish your Sweet DD a very Happy Birthday from me! Can't believe Mitch will be 20 tomorrow!

  9. Kelly, your cards are stupendous! How ever did you get that yummy chocolate icing on the cupcake? There is a finger streak on the monitor where I tried to snatch a sample! You added a nice big exclamation point to the end of our hop! Great job!
