And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Happy Birthday, Korin!

Welcome friends...I'm so glad you were able to stop in...you are in for a real treat! I'm a day early with a very special birthday surprise....tomorrow is my dear friend Korin Sutherland's birthday!  A group of her friends are getting together today for a fun, early birthday party because tomorrow is the fantastic April Release Blog Hop for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, and we didn't want to take the spotlight away from that.  After all, our sweet girl deserves her OWN day in the spotlight!  So please join us as we celebrate Korin's birthday a little early! After all - you can never have too much celebration, can you?!?!



If you've just arrived from Brenda Weaver's Sweet Paper Treats Blog, you're on the right track.  If not...you may want to go back to Taylor Usry's blog to start at the beginning.

Creative Nugget:  This sweet little girl is for a very sweet friend...Korin!  She is from the Special Friends clear stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and is all colored up with copic markers. Her dress is paper pieced to match the pennant hanging above her.  A little lace, some messy stitching, and some pearls complete this sweet birthday card!  Have a wonderful day, Korin!

Below is the whole birthday party train....prepare yourself for some fantastic cupcakes and ice cream from these talented ladies!!




Head on over to Makiko Jones' Mak Ink Studio next for some more birthday sweetness!
                                                              
And feel free to leave Korin some early birthday love, either on her blog, her Facebook page, or the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Facebook page!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Come back again tomorrow for the fun April Release Blog Hop!


Hugs,
Cathymac
