Surprise Blog Hop!

Welcome to Tamiko's Creative Team's FIRST BLOG HOP! This is truly a "first" for me too so I hope I'm doing it right!
You are on the right track if you came from Tamiko's personal blog THINGS OF JOY. If you didn't come from Tamiko's personal blog, you can click HERE to start from the beginning at Tamiko's CT blog to participate in this fun blog hop.

Why is this a "surprise" blog hop? Well, today, the team is celebrating two surprises...first is the new release by The Greeting Farm (TGF). The images get better and better with each release! To see the new releases, click HERE to go to Tamiko's online store! The second surprise that the team is celebrating today is a birthday! One of our dear team members, CAMI, will be celebrating her birthday this month, so today, we honor you, CAMI! Happy, Happy Birthday!!

On with the hop...there are a few things you need to do to participate in this hop. You must visit each creative team member's blogs and you must leave a comment on each blog to qualify for the blog hop candy. Blog hop candy? Yes! one lucky winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to Tamiko's online store PLUS one choice from TGF new release! You can choose either Oh Boy Ian or Sweet Anya! The hop will end on September 7, 2010, 11:59 p.m. HST. One winner will be selected and announced on the following day.

Here is my special birthday card for my sweet friend, Cami! I used the image Oh Boy Ian...isn't he so handsome?! The card I made is an origami card. I haven't made one of these in a while and had so much fun! If you would like to make one of these origami cards, check out the tutorial on my side bar.
Here is the inside of the card...
Happy Birthday Cami!! Hope your day is as special as you!
