Now what could this be? A birthday card?

Yes! How lovely...our lovely Joan (DT) made this gorgeous exploding card to help celebrate our first birthday and look there is Hazel our resident fairy at the top lighting the candle! That's so  lovely and we love the Purple.  what a lovely surprise.


Prizes you say...oh yes we have plenty of prizes so long as you remember the magic words in your comments....when blog hopping or entering for DT candy.

We have a daily blog hop starting HERE ( different sponsor each day) every day and hopping around the DT  and the magic word is BIRTHDAY! so don't forget to put BIRTHDAY in your blog hop comments each day...and yes we have a prizes!

Yet more prizes! Now while you are hopping you will find that a few of the DT have done their own blog candy for the week...don't forget to read their rules and if you need a special word that they give you don't forget to use it...that way you are eligible for their prize.

Plus!!  Each sponsor is giving a prize to a winner so that's 7 winners this about that....

But that's not all! We have a sponsor giving away a digi to each person who enters into the competition!

How is that for a birthday celebratory week??

On with the festivities!


Today (day 1) we are lucky enough to be sponsored by SBS

We were given a lovely selection of birthday themed cards to play with....Now i don't know if you are familiar with SBS but Betty really does make some awesome digi's and quite a few have a little quirk!  There is something for everyone and Betty even takes commissions and makes you into a digi! 
 If you crafty ( no pun intended) you can often get the comparisons at a really good price.

So onto today's DT makes with a prize of a $10 gift certificate from SBS.
