G's Birthday Blog Hop!!

I'm super excited today because we, the Design Team members of Guylou's Inimitability, are hosting a special Birthday Blog Hop to celebrate the birthday of our fearless leader, Guylou!!!

If you've come from Kim's blog, then you're headed in the right direction.  If not, then you should start from the beginning of the hop which is over at Brenda's  blog.

Here's a list of the Blog Hop order just in case you get lost along the way:


You want to start at the beginning (Brenda) because every person that comments on each of the DT's blog AND leaves a Happy Birthday message on Guylou's blog (we will be checking!!), will be in the running to win a glorious RAK which includes one pack of 4 copic multiliners, one pack of 2 stardust pens, a black memento ink pad, and a $5 gift card to Guylou's Inimitability store!!!  WOW - what a RAK!! 

For G's birthday card, I used the new image from Guylou's store, called Fairy 1 and she is just out of this world. 

G - I just want to tell you what a fabulous friend and amazing mentor you have been in my life.  Thank you for believing in me and my talent!  Today, I celebrate you - the wonderful woman you are to me and to everyone that knows you.  I truly wish you the best birthday filled with lots of sweet surprises and hope that the year ahead brings you many blessings.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!  

Our hop will run until Sunday, October 16 at 11:59 p.m. EST.   A winner will be chosen using and announced on Monday.
Your next stop along our hop is Tracy and she has something fabulous to share with you!!

Happy Hopping and lots of luck!!!
