Whitney's Sweet 16 Birthday Blog Hop

<---  If you have come here looking for DAY ONE of the Disney Pixar Blog Hop, please click HERE. DAY TWO (Sunday's) post will be up at 6:00 a.m. EDT, and will be HERE.

-----------------------------------------------
The following hop celebrates
Whitney's 16th birthday!
-----------------------------------------------

Happy Birthday, Whitney! 

You have a super mama (Rachelle Larsen), who arranged for her bloggie friends to make cards to help celebrate your landmark 16th birthday. I'm happy to join in the fun, since Rachelle tells us that Whitney is truly as sweet as she is now sixteen!

Rachelle gave us a few clues as to what Whitney likes, and I picked up on that the sweetie apparently gets some of her sweetness by enjoying Skittles candies.  For her "card", I bought a small box of Skittles and covered it in Skittles colors, incorporating the candy as a gift into the card:


Here it is, laying flat:


Here is the inside of the gift/card:


It's in the mail, Whitney!  I hope you enjoy it!!

Now move on the Whitney's Sweet 16 Birthday Blog Hop, by visiting others' cards for this precious young lady. But before you go, be sure to leave a comment here (and on each stop) to be eligible to win super BLOG CANDY provided by Whitney's mom Rachelle. Check out her hostess hop (HERE) to see what's available to win. 

Your next stop is: KIMBERLY
