Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Birthday Blog Hop!

It all begins at Noon on Saturday, February 20 and ends on Sunday, February 21 at midnight.

The Birthday Blog Hop has 24 stops and each features a different birthday theme. You are sure to be inspired by all the creative ideas.

You are now at stop No. 23 on the tour where I am featuring birthday ideas for a "Ladies Night Out" themed birthday. This coordinating set is designed to be given to that special birthday lady and includes a Gift Card Holder with a matching Card Box Purse, a Birthday Card and a Party Favor.

Totally Tess Ladies Night Out Birthday














The party favor is made using the Big Shot and the Scallop Circle and Clear Circle Dies.
Stamps: Tiny Tags
Paper: Rose Red, Sweat Pea DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Access: Rose Red Grosgrain Ribbon, 1/16" Hole Punch, Medium Jewelry Punch, Linen Thread, 2 nail files

This full size card is also a gift card holder that I placed inside the box.
