myStampBOX: Let's Party!

Welcome to the "Let's Party!" blog hop for myStampBOX! If you have just happened upon my blog, please start at the beginning of our blog hop.

Take the time to leave some love on each design team member's blog post and you could be be picked to WIN a myStampBOX stamp set of your very own! You have until Friday December 11th at 6pm EST to leave your comments for a chance to win. The blog hop winner will be announced on the myStampBOX blog on Monday December 14th.



Here is our blog rotation for this evening:



Here's a fun fact: tomorrow is my birthday! I know that the myStampBOX designers are sharing a variety of party ideas today, but I like to secretly think that they are all celebrating with me! *wink*

As a child with a December birthday I sometimes got gifts wrapped in Christmas paper or worse yet the dreaded "combo gift" which eliminated my birthday entirely. Since we have so many December birthdays in our family I try very hard to make sure that everyone feels special and remembered. Here's a fun card and gift bag made with stamps from myStampBOX: Birthday Numbers, He Loves Me (swirl) and Color Me Sentiments. I used bright polka dots and colors that are fresh and fun (and nothing like Christmas!)

I also stamped a quick treat bag topper using multicolored ink and the Birthday Numbers set to match the color scheme of my other projects. You can take a gift to the birthday girl or boy using this topper or send cookies home with your party guests. Either way it's an easy way to match all the items on your special day.
Now on to Ellen's blog to catch more fun ideas for all kinds of parties. Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog to be eligible for our blog hop prize! Good luck!

LOL!! Happy Birthday Jolene!! I have 2 boys with December birthdays - this from the couple who actually had the conversation, "let's not have any kids in Dec. so we can avoid the birthday/christmas combo party and gift thing." Oops....can't plan everything I guess. Love your gift bag...I have this stamp set and love it!

as the mother of a december bday kid (christmas eve no less) I have to say, the "dreaded combo gift" comes in handy these days when the gifts they want (xboxes etc.) cost $200+!!! I know we never got any thing near that expensive when we were kids (in the dark ages, of course.)
