Welcome to Day 2 of Ashley's 21st Birthday Blog Hop!

We are so glad you could join us! If you've come from Georgiana's blog, you're in the right place! If you have just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Ashley at Made Especially For You.

This weekend we are celebrating Ashley's 21st Birthday with some fun and creative, birthday/alcohol-themed projects! It's not 21 without a drink or two, right?!

I'm so pleased to be a part of this hop! Ashley and I became friends through All That Stickles, and have served on several design teams together.  Can you believe she's only 21?  She's so awesome! I see an incredible future ahead for this motivated lady!
When she asked me to be in this hop, I knew just what I wanted to make.  The Cutting Cafe just released 13 new shaker cards, and they are so fun! I am suddenly a shaker maker!
I thought this birthday-themed shaker card would be perfect for Ashley:

I have another card that I've posted before -- near New Year's Eve, but it seems appropriate for Ashley and her 21st birthday:


The Fashionista and Sentiment are both from Unity Stamp Company.  The wine glass is another cutting file from The Cutting Cafe.

 I'm the last stop on this two-day hop.  Hope you had fun!

I'm entering these in the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations Challenge #81
The Aviary March Challenge "Celebrate"
Sister Act Card Challenge -- ATG
Seize the birthday
Craftin Desert Divas "Birthdays"
