OMGee, Kimi's turning 30 Blog Hop - Saturday, April 6

What a fun occasion we're celebrating today -- our friend and high priestess of Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbons Kimi is turning the big 3-0!  So members of the Lovebug Creative Team thought, "Let's throw a party!", blog hoppin' style.

Once I learned that Kimi loves GIRAFFES and the colors pink and green, I decided to custom design a card just for her:

The sweet giraffe I used is from the Silhouette Online store, and of course, the ribbons I used are from the Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon collection!  

There is some fabulous blog candy for the winners on this Kimi's 30 Blog Hop. To qualify, the winner must have commented and followed every blog on the Hop, and at the last stop (Kimi's blog), please wish the birthday girl a swell day!  Winner will be chosen at random on April 8th, and posted on Kimi's blog. Here are the three prizes (awarded separately):

Prize #1 (shown at right)
2 - 6x6 pad from Canvas Corp
1 – 6x6 pad from Pink Paisley
6 – flower trims
3 different colors of Rumple Ribbon (gentleman’s jacket, sugar plum and beary brown)

Prize #2 (shown at left)
