Happy Birthday, Erin!! Blog Hop

Hello, friends:)
Today some friends and I are doing a birthday blog hop for our dear friend, Erin!!! 

I was given a couple of instructions for this hop--use kraft and red, as well as a sketch (created by Karen Baker). I love this sketch--it's super fun and can be interpreted with almost any object or embellie! So I used some of my Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 papers, along with my Imaginisce iTop tool and some Unity stamps {butterfly, Life Becoming; sentiment Ippity Just Wanted to Say}. I love the hand drawn line around the entire card! I also love the huge E tag! LOVE LOVE LOVE how this turned out--now I just have to wait for Erin to get it in the mail!!! **NOTE:: I know that I added a bit of blue/yellow in this sketch--but I just had to use that paper on the bottom! It has an E!!! I also moved the sentiment to be above the dots on the sketch--I just realized that I did that wrong! LOL! 
That's it for me....but wait...THERE'S MORE!!!!! Please stop by each blog on the hop and leave some love!! And be sure to leave some love on Erin blog--there is an opportunity to win some prizes!! HOOOORAY!
