Happy Birthday Amber Ink!


Twelve short months ago we made our big debut,

So now we'd like to commemorate our 1st birthday with you!

This flash mob of torchbearers always light our way.

Won't you please jog along on our special day?

Leave your comments here and there over the next 48.

On Friday we'll announce the loot. Don't wait...let's CELEBRATE!


I was lucky enough to be an Amber Ink torch bearer last February and am thrilled to be able to take part in this blog hop celebrating the first birthday of Amber Ink!

Since it isn’t a birthday party with out presents, cake, and a little vino, I made this card for the hop. Of course I had to add lots of gemstones because Amber, Pam and my teamies all deserve a little, well, make that a lot, of sparkle.

Your next stop on the hop is Michelle! Below you should also find a complete blog hop list, courtesy of a InLinkz tool. I won’t have a chance to check to make sure it works correctly on the day of the hop, so if there are any problems, you will be able to find the complete blog hop list on the Amber Ink blog.







Don't forget to hop around to all the blogs and leave comments for your chance to win Amber Ink goodies.

Thank you for hopping by!

P.S. While you are here, you might want to check out my blog candy post.
