Felicity's Be A Blessing Blog Hop!

Felicity's Be A Blessing Blog Hop!!

Welcome to Felicity's Be A Blessing Blog Hop!!

Today we are celebrating a very special little girl's first birthday. She has had a difficult fight this past year and we felt what better way to celebrate her life than have a blog hop!

Felicity has touched so many lives even though she is not even one yet. Every day she makes therapists, doctors, and even her family smile.

If you arrived from Lucy's blog, then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stumble across the hop on my blog today and would like to start at the beginning, then hop on over and see Shawnee's blog.

For my project, I decided to thank someone who is a blessing to me every single day. My husband.
He is such a hard worker, always makes sure we all have what we need, helps out our neighbors whenever he is needed (even if he is so tired he can't stay awake), always puts his family before himself, is so supportive and encouraging to all of us and is my biggest fan. He is just an all around great guy and I wanted to do something special for him to show him just how much we love and appreciate him so I made him a little gift.



For my card, I simply made an A2 sized card turned so it opens sideways. My patterned paper is from the Breeze 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye. My sentiment came from the Silhouette online store and I added a little bit of glossy accents to the heart in "YOU". Inside the card is a personal letter to him letting him know just how much he means to me and how thankful I am for him.

For my gift bag, I simply took a plain white gift bag and decorated the front with some of the same patterned papers. The light bulb die cut also came from the Silhouette online store and there is also some glossy accents in the middle of that heart as well. My lightbulb container was found at AC Moore and I thought it went perfectly with this project. It is filled with some Lemon Drop candies, my hubby loves candy! 

I love how my project turned out and I am looking forward to giving it to my hubby.


I also have some blog candy for one lucky follower.

  11. How fun this lightbulb is ... I have to go see if I can find one at AC Moore! I have a lot of ideas -- the lightbulb went off in my head when I saw your project!! THANK YOU for triggering them .. sometimes I just get into a creative funk, and participating in hops does so help my mojo. I'm sure your hubby will LOVE it, especially the Lemon Drop candies within!! That's very thoughtful of you to honor him.

    Fondly,
