Happy Birthday Gerda!

Hello friends.  Today is an exciting day at StampFairy because ... it's Gerda's birthday!  To celebrate, we are throwing her a Virtual Birthday Party.  So, come join the fun hop and party with us!

If you arrived here from the lovely Chrissy's blog then you are in the right place.  If not, you may want to start at the first stop of the party ... the StampFairy Blog.

Gerda, I want to wish you a very happy birthday with lots of birthday cake!  Since I couldn't couldn't make you a real cake, I've used this adorable image to make you a yummy cupcake ... you can never have too much cake!  I hope you get lots of fabulous presents and have a wonderful day!


As you visit each of the blogs, please leave a comment sending birthday wishes to Gerda for a chance to win an image.  I will randomly select a name to win the beautiful Lenny Cupcakes image I used on my card.  The hop will run from 12:01 AM EST Saturday, July 30, through 11:00 PM EST Monday, August 1.  Please include your email address in your comment so we can get your image to you if you're the lucky winner!

Now, the next stop on the hop is the lovely Martina's blog.  If you get lost along the way you can always jump over to the StampFairy Blog to see the blog hop order.
