Happy Birthday, Reenee!!!

Today, I am honored to participate in a Clear and Simple Stamps Blog Hop celebrating owner Reenee's birthday. All this was planned by Nicki (the other owner of CSS) on the sly, and it's so exciting to be in on the surprise. I do love a surprise party!

The Birthday Hop has lots of cards by awesome designers! There are prizes! Please see the details below!

I guess that last sentence didn't need an exclamation point, but it looked lonely without one.

Anyway... Happy Birthday, Reenee!

My clean and simple card uses two Clear and Simple Stamps sets: Kind Deeds (the silhouette) and Banner of News (the banner and sentiment). I used Memento Grape Jelly to stamp the silhouette and banner, and Tuxedo Black for the sentiment. The banner is popped on dimensionals.

Blog Hop Details

You should have arrived here from Jen Tapler's blog, and from here, click over to visit Sarah Martina. The complete hop list is below if you need to start at the beginning. Make sure you go to the CSS's Facebook Page and/or their Blog (links below) and leave a birthday greeting for Reenee to qualify for a PRIZE.

Two surprise packages of CSS goodies made up of some of Reenee's favorite products! Each package will be valued at $50. In order to qualify for the prize, participants must leave a birthday wish for Reenee on the Facebook and/or Clear and Simple Stamps blogpost. They will pick {2} winners - one winner from FB and one winner from the CSS Blog.
