Happy Birthday Candace! A BD Blog Hop!

Happy Birthday Candace!!!!

 Today it is my Stampin Sister in Christ design team sister, Candace Mitchell's, birthday! Happy Birthday Candace!
We are throwing Candace a virtual birthday party blog hop!. If you hopped here from  Chris' blog, then you're in the right place!
Each of us is bringing something that Candace loves to the party! One of Candace's passions is Coke Zero, so I am bringing her a BIG can of that, but just to let you know, I'll be bringing my own iced coffee to drink too! :)  Candace... I hope this is big enough for you sister!!!

I also am bringing the happy birthday card above, since Candace loves bright colors!  I made this card with the Our Daily Bread designs Happy Birthday set and colored it with Copics.  The designer paper is BasicGrey Euphoria... lots of bright colors!  I used 2 label # 5 Spellbinder's Dies and a ticket punch for the sentiment.  The butterfly edge punch is Martha Stewart.  I did a chocolate zig zag stitch just in case she wants a little chocolate!  This chocolate is sugar free and fat free!  Since Candace loves pink there is some pink bling as well.  

From here you should hop to Kathy's Blog to see what she'll be bringing to the party!  Have fun, and Happy Birthday Candace!  Please be sure to stop by her blog and wish her a happy birthday and give her a little love!

Grace this is a beautiful card for a new friend! ODBD HB set is still one of my favs.

Candace will love that you brought some Coke Zero of which I love too. However, faced with the decision to have Coke or coffee I will most likely have coffee so I hope you share.

I hope she's really thirsty or decides to share! That is one honking huge can of Coke Zero! And such a lovely card, you framed it so nicely. Beautiful Grace!

Can you please send some of that chocolate this way - all the chocolate here has sugar and calories :-(.
