Gerda's Virtual Birthday Party - Blog Hop at Stamp Fairy

It's a VERY special day at Stamp Fairy because today is .....

Gerda's 30th Birthday

Happy 30th birthday, Gerda.  I hope that you're suitably dressed for your party? (and not still wearing your PJ's !!).  

Put that bowl of breakfast cereal down, push aside that 'wake-up' coffee, and get yourself in that party spirit, girl !!  Cos IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY !!!  YIPPEE !!!

The teamies at Stamp Fairy are celebrating by throwing you a surprise Virtual Brithday Party! 

Today's your day, so ........

LET'S GET ON WITH THE PARTY !!!

Grab yourself a glass of champers, put on your dancing shoes, and come on in and join the party with us !!

If you have arrived here from the super talented Celine's blog, then you're in the right place.  If not, make sure you start at the beginning of the Party which is the 'party invitation' at Stamp Fairy World blog.

By now you should be well and truly in the party spirit, as my lovely teamies have set up the party from the start; from Jackie's invitation to getting your party frock on; Deanne and Dora blew up the balloons, Lelia brought flowers for birthday girl, Carissa provided the music, Lisa showed you some moves on the dance floor, and Celine has poured the drinks.

So what comes next in a party ???   Well, I think it is about time for ...

BIRTHDAY  GIFTS !!!

So it's my turn to reveal my project, which is the birthday present.  I've made a little birthday box out of card, and adorned it with 8 (yes, 8) different Stamp Fairy characters, and some pretty pink embellishments  (Gerda, I hope you like the colour pink, cos you'd better prepare to overdose on the stuff !!!). 

Beware, picture overload coming up ..... LOL

Here's the first views showing it from 2 corners, with the little pairs of characters.  I've also glittered something on each panel too, to give it some extra sparkle, but it's not showing up very well on the images.  Doh !!!




Now here is each of the 4 sides in their full glory !!!

Freebie Bunnies (glittered flowers):


Panda Paul Bamboo (glittered bamboo):


Donny Ladybug (glittered hats/wings):


And of course, Lenny (glittered bubbles and hat):


I lined the inside of the little box, and punched a pretty lacy border :



And finally, here's the lid, which I've lined and embossed inside  ......




..... and decorated with pink seam binding, pink flower with pink stamens, pink tag and (you've guessed it) pink pearls. 




To Win ...

If you want to win your choice of 1 image from any of the 8 fantastic characters that I've used on my project, then please leave a comment, specifically wishing Gerda, the birthday girl, a HAPPY BIRTHDAY (so I know you're here for the hop).  

A winner will be drawn from all the qualifying comments after the hop ends on Monday 1st August.  Make sure you include your email address on your comment so we can contact you if you win.  Winners will be notified later in the week.

What's next ?

Carry on hopping through the party, The lovely Tracey is next so hop along to her blog to see what is next on the party agenda.  


Be careful you don't have too much bubbly to drink too soon though, otherwise you'll not make it through to the end of the party.  A couple of the girls have birthday cake (yummy) so make sure you don't miss out on that !!!!!!   LOL.

Wow this is an amazing creation. It must have taken you hours and hours to make and shows what a dear friend Gerda is to you. I didn't realise up til now that Gerda was 30 today- I was 30 about 2 months ago and so know what it is like! Pass on my birthday congratulations.
