Birthday Blessings to Sally Blog Hop

If you are looking for the Turkey Trot hop please scroll down to the next post!

Welcome to Birthday Blessings to Sally blog Hop. Today is Kimberly Pate's mother birthday and it was thought to honor and cherish her mother by having a blog hop. All cards will be mailed to Sally in care of Kimberly.

Birthday's are a blessing especially if it is someone special. God grants blessings by giving us special people to honor. Kimberly Pate is a wonderful loving caring person which I am sure is due to the
wonderful parenting skills of her mother Sally. So, let's see how our wonderful group wishes Sally a happy birthday.

There is a wonderful line-up of birthday wishers:
  1. Kimberly ~
  2. Lynne ~
  3. Lisa ~
  4. Miriam ~
  5. Tami ~
  6. Anita ~
  7. Rachelle~
We have a special sponsor today to help us celebrate. She asks that you remark on everyone's site along with wishing Sally a very special birthday blessing! Then, head on over to visit her Facebook store at:

Just like her page, leave a comment that you came from this hop and you will be entered to win ten sets of half pearls and/or rhinestones of your choice!

If you have arrived from Lisa's blog then you are on the right birthday trail. If you just happened to stop and visit me, I am truly blessed and happy that you have but would love for you to follow the complete hop by starting with of course with Kimberly at

For my birthday project for Sally I have made her a purse. I tried to make a card, but my son ate the pearls that I had put on it, oh what pretty poop there will be in my future! So, I decided to make her a gift instead. I use the Cricut cart Tags, Bags, Boxes and More purse 2 from pg. 118 of the booklet. I cut it at 7" (tried 8" but it was too big to cut). I then glued super tiny, but super strong magnets onto the inside flap and the front of the purse as a closure. (Magnets will be available for purchase soon at Miriam's Crafting Supplies.) I covered the magnets with circles of paper cut with SCAL from the same paper as the purse itself. Then, I added a 10mm and 2 7mm rhinestones from Miriam's Crafting Supplies to jazz up the front a bit! There is a bit of lace as an accent on the back and as a handle.

 Your next stop along the way on our birthday blessings is Tami's blog.
