Kim's Dog Themed Birthday Blog Hop

I am so excited for this blog hop.  If you have just arrived from Abby then you're on the right track!  If not, and you want to start at the beginning and see all the amazing projects, click here!
 
This hop is a way for all of us to wish our great friend Kim a very happy birthday. 
 
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dearest Kim!!
Happy Birthday to you!
 
If there's one thing I know about Kim, she loves her dogs as though they are her babies and she is a great mom to them too. 
 
 
 
 
A few years back, Kim made me a banner for my birthday that hangs in my craft room. I've been wanting to make her one and this was a perfect opportunity.  I used the fancy topper die from Jaded Blossom, cut the base in half and added the insert to each half.  I cut the insert out of paw print paper from The Paper Studio's Spoiled Rotten stack.  As soon as I saw this stack, I thought of Kim instantly.
 
 
 
 
I strung the pendants together when Kim's favorite ribbon (sheer) and added the lettering with pop dots to make them stand out.  I also added a matching rhinestone to each letter to bring it all together.
 
There are pups between each of the words and 3 of them have bones with her babies names.
 
 
 
 
 

and what's a birthday with out a card?  I of course had to make one that matched the banner for her.  Sorry for all the photos but I just had to show you everything! 
 
 
 
 
Kim is an amazing person, she deserves the best!
I am so happy that we were all able to get together and show her how important she is and how much she means to us!
 
You next stop is Kim's Blog... Be sure to leave her some Birthday wishes, you can win some awesome blog candy.  There will be cancer kisses 2 and Puppy love given away!  The hop will run through Sunday with winners announced on Monday!
