Tina's 30th birthday blog hop

How fun is it that we bloggers get to meet friends all over the world, all nationalities, all ages and through the scrappy world, we can come together to celebrate life's great occasions??

Today is one such FUN occasion -- Tina at Crafty and Green is turning 30!  And she's hosting a blog hop to help celebrate the occasion. So if you've come from one of my BFFs, Susan's blog, you're at the right party. Be sure to stop and wish a happy b'day to Tina at her blog, too... as she says, she's not 30, she's 18 with 12 years of experience!

Now, it's been quite some time since I've turned 30 ... in fact, I'm closer to twice that age. But looking back, all I wanted then (and now!) was a haus-frau. So Tina, this one's for you:

I made this tri-fold card for Tina, which features an adorable digi-image of a housework fairy by Mo Manning at Mo's Digital Pencil. I paper-pieced the fairy's dress and apron using the reverse side of some Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker paper, in the My Li'l  Monster line. Snips of the same paper decorate the center of the folded card. The cover I designed, typeset and printed on my computer.

To see what other treats Tina has in store for her birthday bash, be sure to hop on over to your next stop:
