Thankful Tuesday -n- Blog Hop day 2

Happy Tuesday!

I am combining my regular "Daily Themed" Posts along with Jenn's Birthday Blog Hop that is happening until May 2nd. If you missed yesterday's Day 1 of the Hop Start HERE (Jenn's (the birthday girl) Blog).

What am I "THANKFUL" for on this beautiful Tuesday?

I am thankful that the universe has connected my world to collide with Jenn's world.  We happen to meet online on the original Cricut message board in Cards for Soldiers (where I made many good friends too). Jenn & I have grown in our friendship over the past 4 or 5 years (shame on me for not remembering). She came and visited me one day with her beautiful family and another CFS Queen and we hung out at my house and had a BBQ. It was so much fun. I plan to visit her before we move to Oregon and have another awesome visit. Though, I wish she lived much closer, who knows maybe she'll follow me to Oregon ;) ! She has been such a wonderful friend to me thru everything I have gone thru, and shared!

As for My Project for today I did some adorable birthday Cards. I used 99% CTMH Papers. I used the Hippo from  My Acrylix® Stamp Sets D1434 YOU'RE GREAT I stamped the adorable Hippo on the pattern paper, which I often forget you can do and saves you the time from coloring and adds that lil exta something.
You can purchase the set by clicking the link above for $22.95
I also used the Accessories Die-Cuts Z1377 KRAFT COLOR-READY BORDERS to accent the cards
You can Purchase this pack of Die Cut Chipboard Adhesive Pack of 50 Borders by clicking the link above for $5.95
Now for my Cards:

Unfortunately I had a cute Hippo Cut File Planned but I couldn't get it to cut properly and still needs some work so instead I have this cute Birthday File available in both MTC and SVG Format.

Freebies expire after awhile and are removed as a Free download.
