Birthday Blog Hop ~ Hey Chickie!

Hello! I received an email several days ago inviting me to participate in a birthday blog hop to honor Nami from DeNami Designs. Nami is one of the owners and artist behind their cute stamps. I was more than happy to accept! The happiest of birthday wishes to you Nami and may your future years be blessed!!!

If you're following the hop you should be arriving here from Deb W.'s blog

My first experience with DeNami designs came at a local stamp convention several years ago. My sister-in-law and I spent quite a bit of time pouring over all of the cute stamps and inspiration in the booth. I was very impressed with the family atmosphere ~ husband, wife, children all smiles and eager to help. If we couldn't find something the little fellas of the family knew exactly where to get it for us! So to honor this memory of my first experience with DeNami I went with a non-traditional; birthday card. 

  
When I think of DeNami Designs the first images that come to mind are the cute chickies! This little gal with her pumps and purse is too cute. I paired her with a fun sentiment and the small solid scalloped circle. To add a touch of interest to the card I accented with gems, glitter and some snippets of MME paper. I'm also entering this in the latest DeNami challenge #11: anything goes! 

Next up on the hop is the ever so talented Dana Seymour! 

I've also used a few digi images and square theme for our Friday inspiration challenge at The Creative Paper Trade. I hope you'll take a moment to stop by and check things out. This is our third challenge for the week and you still have time to play along!


Thanks for stopping by and have a splendid day! ~Lisa
