Mayzy's Amazing May Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

So glad that you have stopped by today. I have something special for you. MayzyArt is having a May blog hop.There is a fun game she is doing as well so you will have to collect all the secret words along the way.  Mayzy gave the DT's an opportunity to invite guest DT's to join along in the blog hop. 
The hardest part of this was picking out an image to use. Mayzy has so many fun images to use. But I wanted to use one that I could get creative with using the step card. By they way make sure you check at the bottom of this post. I have a video on making this card that so many people make but I have also created a cut file sorry it's just for the Silhouette Cameo but it will be located in the video description as well as below the video. 

This sweetie is Jean, and she is holding a birthday cupcake for that special birthday girl. 
I have colored her with my Copics. I also cut her and the mat for her from the Cameo. 

The paper is from Sherry K digi collection I picked up from her Etsy Store. She has some really cute papers. And many times they are on sale. I like the bright cheery colors that she has. 

I went to town cutting out candles. I love this and the funny thing is they came with the Cameo software who knew.. lol I backed them with the sticker paper and added glitter to match each of the cut out parts of the candles. The Happy Birthday is also a Cameo file.

Now I have to tell you I didn't have charms before but I have found a shop called The Charm Store 24/7 and she was very fast at shipping. She has some of the cutest charms around. 

Here is the Silhouette Cameo cut file for download

Oh I guess you would like to know the Secret word for my part of the blog hop.

Now in case you have stopped here out of the blog hop order I have listed them below if you are right on track then you next stop will be Candy's blog 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed what I have for you today and will give this card a try. Enjoy the rest of your stops.
