Birthday blog hop for Torico!

Please scroll down for my Make It Monday and Pollycrafts Monday DT posts!

Hi everyone!  Many of you know that I am a huge fan of Torico, the illustrator of Birdie Brown and There She Goes stamps.  Well, today is her birthday and a gang of some of her biggest fans thought it would be fun to do a blog hop showcasing the birthday cards we have made with her gorgeous designs!

And not only that, we are all giving away some candy to a lucky random commentator on each gang member's Torico birthday post!  Before we get onto the candy, first here is my card for Torico!



I have used one of Torico's new Cupcake Star and I kept it very simple to showcase this cute digi!  I used a Craft Concepts embossing folder to give the card some depth, a little twine for interest and for the inside I used papers from the My Minds Eye Alphabet Soup collection.  Now here is the list of everyone on the hop!



And what about the candy?!  Just leave me a comment on this post and become a follower if you'd like (not compulsory to win though!).  Here is what you can win from me and it is all designer goodies!  There's American Crafts stickers, Cosmo Cricket rub-ons, Adorn-It stickers, Stampin Up Baja Breeze seam binding, a pot of Beadazzles, and 2 K & Company mat pads!



You have until midnight on 28 February GMT to comment for a chance to win my candy!  And don't forget to leave a comment on each of the hopper's posts for a chance to win their candy too!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:
