Happy 30th Birthday to Emma Lou!




It's Emma Lou's birthday and we have a surprise and some fun!!!! 
The Heartfelt Creations design team wanted to celebrate Emma Lou's 30th Birthday today!
So we planned a surprise for her!

Above is the card I made using the Birds and Blooms collection!

The design team made her cards and sent them off to her mum Linda all in secret!
Ellen (Emma Lou's sister) had to make sure none were discovered in the office
as parcels arrived. I am sure it must have been quite a challenge! Lol!

In honour of Emma Lou's birthday the design team also wanted to hold a blog hop so you can
all see the fabulous cards we made for her!! 

I also made a gift bag to match the card! Now what could I have filled it with?
Lol! Well it had to be pink didn't it! Lol That's all I can say!!!!



Emma Lou's wonderful husband Richard wanted 
you all to have the chance to win a $25 Heartfelt Creations gift voucher on the hop! 
All you have to do is comment on as many blogs as you want in the hop.
The Hop starts from 8am EST on Thursday 11th August
and closes Tuesday 16th august at midnight EST A winner will be randomly
drawn from all of the blogs and will be posted on the Heartfelt Creations
Facebook page on Wednesday 17th August. The winner will have
72 hours to claim the prize. If the prize is unclaimed we will draw the prize again!



Have fun on the hop! Wow Didn't Emma Lou get some amazing cards!
The next blog in the hop is Ujjwal Gupta

 

We also thought it might be fun to post some of our pics of us with Emma Lou,
I have had the pleasure of Emma Lou's company a few times, she always makes me smile!
I am so honoured and blessed to call her my friend and my boss!
The Bontrager family are truly special and I am very thankful for them all.

There are so many of us joining in this hop, here is the full list!
Have fun and god luck!
