Winnie & Walter 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop


Happy Friday!  I'm excited to be helping Winnie & Walter celebrate their fourth birthday today.  You should be arriving from Taheerah Atchia's blog.

I was lucky enough to be able to meet and hang out a bit with Shay last month at Creativation.  She's the real deal, down to earth, fun, and supportive.  I was also able to meet Evelin T - who designed the stamp set I'm featuring today.  So sweet and kind.  I could hang out with those girls all day!


Anyway, I thought it would be fitting to create a birthday card for this hop, and this little puffin from the Winter Wishes set looks to me like he is just partying and having a great time, so I thought I would make him the focus of the card.

I started by stamping him on my panel and coloring him with Copics.  Then I created a mask for him and also masked off the bottom of the card to create a ground line.

There are four blobby dot stamps in this set which I used to create the background, I wanted almost a lava lamp effect.  I used the Sea Shore ink collection from Altenew and did both first and second generation stamping of the inks as well as varying the shades.


The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday to You set from Winnie & Walter.

All good hops need prizes right?  Well there are four up for grabs on this hop.  Four people will win $40 credits to the W&W store.  You have until February 28th to complete the hop.  Your next stop is Keren Baker, and I'll put the full list below in case you get turned around.


Good luck and happy hopping!

    Good Morning
    First of all I would recommend you to be careful with the offers on the net and warnings. Because more than 90% of quest'avvisi are fraudulent. Today there is more and more fraud. I wanted to borrow money, after having sent a notice, every day I receive more than 25 messages of nothing scams asking for money are saying Folders expenses. And it would erase his message, but one day he threw himself on a Maricina designated person of Tricha, I thought that you made the party of scoundrels also the network, but to my surprise, it's different, he gave me a loan of € 40,000 at a much well 2% refundable in the number of time you want. Now confirm it, and if it happens that you are looking for a loan contact me by email. Here is your email:

    marilinetricha@mail.ru

    NB: We also informed you, and I swear to you that I only had to pay the registration fees and the contracts to recover my funds.
