Candace's Birthday Blog Hop!

Hello, How you Bean?!
Welcome to Candace's Birthday Blog Hop!  

Today we are celebrating our dear friend Candace's birthday!
This hop is sponsored by SVG Cutting Files and Jaded Blossom!
Now if you are here from Trixie's page then you're in the right place,
if not then you may want to start in the beginning 
 If you get lost we have the entire line up below this post.
Here is what Katie Sr / Katie W created... 
The Happy Baker!
We have all seen the cool treats that Candace is always making and since it is her special day, "Birthday calories don't count!"
I was originally going to put sprinkles in the tubes but decided on these new carrot cake M&M's.  The sprinkles will be in a goody bag for later use.

Here is a close up of my sentiment and double tube holder:
  Here is the recipe:
Mini Tag die from Jaded Blossom
  Sentimentfrom Jaded Blossom set "Sweet Birthday Wishes"
 The double tube holder can be found at SVG Cutting Files.
  The paper doll is from the "Everyday Paper Doll Cricut cartridge"

AND since you get DOUBLE THE FUN on this blog 
Here is what Katie Jr / Katie M created...
Candace has FABULOUS taste. I wanted to make a card that implied what a cool cat she is :) 
Inside her greeting card I included a
I hope the next time she purchases her favorite drink (which is pictured here with her goodies and is also my favorite drink) she will have as big a smile on her face as the gray cats do!!
 AND since she loves traveling I made her these LUGGAGE TAGS to help distinguish her bags from all the rest. They are a happy orange color and each have a nerdy mustache message!
I "mustache" You To Let Go Of My Bag
I "mustache" You To Put My Bag Down

(TAGS: Jaded Blossom Treat Tag Die & Mustache Dies) 

To get your hot little hands on the awesome cat image I used for the front of my card (the faces make me smile every time I look at them!)

"I love you" banner

My goal this year is to use my Jaded Blossom fancy die topper and make a banner each month.  I was a little slow in getting January’s banner posted but not February’s and March’s is already in the works. 

I am going to enter this banner in the Jaded Blossom February Challenge, “Crafter’s choice”.  Enjoy and I hope this inspires you do something different
