'Back to the 80's' Blog Hop!



What a fun way to begin a Sunday!


It's Emily Lanham's 
'Back to the 80's' Birthday Blog Hop! 

If you've arrived here from the
then you are in the perfect spot to proceed.

If not, why not pop back to the very beginning on
because there are some amazing prizes up for grabs
in honor of Emily's 29th birthday!


 Although Emily's teen years were spent mostly in the 90's,
she loves everything about the 80's including the sights & sounds.
I made this card with thoughts of some of her favorite songs
by the New Kids on the Block & Def Leppard.

The main focus of my card uses 'Old School Rock' from
Sweet Stamp Shop and thought it was a perfect fit for the occasion.
The sentiment and alpha stamps are also from SSS. (see below)


 I stamped everything using my favorite inks from A Muse Studio,
which are available from my web store HERE.

We would love for you to hop along with us this weekend because many
of the participating blogs have terrific prizes!!

I'm giving away....


The newest colors from The Twinery!

So happy you came by!

To have a chance to win,
remember to leave a little note before you go
and include an email for contact.

Your next stop on the hop is my talented teammate
from Market Street Stamps....

Project Recipe:
Stamps: Old School Rock, Scootin' By & Alpha Doodles
all from Sweet Stamp Shop
Inks: Slate, Bubblegum, Ocean from A Muse Studio 
Embellishments: brads from Recollections

I was in high school during the 80's and am having some flashbacks with some of these creations. Your card is adorable. I don't even think my kids have seen a cassette tape, I remember having a case of these in my car when I first started driving. How times of changed! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

That card is just perfect! I remember my baby niece got hold of my favorite cassette one time and pulled it out all over the place till it looked like a huge pile of spagetti. I had another one melt on my dashboard, those were the days...sigh..
