Happy Birthday to The Pink Elephant

Happy Friday!!


As you can see we are celebrating a birthday today.  The Pink Elephant is four years old!  So to celebrate we are having a blog hop and you will love hopping from blog to blog today!



Usually when you see a post from me about The Pink Elephant I am showing you a challenge and a digital layout, but for the blog hop today, I opted for a birthday card instead.

I printed and cut my Ella Elephant image using my Silhouette Cameo.  All of my background papers are from Authentique and the sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler.  I hope you like my little birthday greeting!

Now for the details on the hop.....leave a comment on each blog by Sunday, February 17 at midnight and you could win one of the prizes that are listed on The Pink Elephant blog.  The winners will be posted there on Tuesday, February 19th.

You probably arrived here from Sherry's wonderful blog and now it's time to see what Melissa Craig has for you.  Just click on her name to be transported! 

Have a wonderful time hopping and I'll see you right back here tomorrow.
