Happy Birthday Justice Ginsburg Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Hello and welcome! Today I'm hopping with some friends to celebrate the birthday of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She's 86 years young today. I recently learned more about her when I saw the documentary "RBG", and I am so thankful for all the work she's done for women's rights and  gender equality. Long before she was a Justice, she was taking cases to the Supreme Court. And she went to Harvard Law School when very few women did. She's been a trailblazer her entire life.

One of my favorite RBG quotes is: “I ask no favor for my sex; all I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks.”

For some crazy reason I thought she needed to be purple.

I used the fabulous new Wonderful Women set from Kelly Purkey. A layering stamp set with Justice Ginsburg? Yes please! I stamped her with Hero Arts Orchid Ink and Intense Black Ink. The little crown is stamped in Dandelion Ink, then covered with Snowfall Glitter. I stamped the message in Unicorn White Ink - I'm wishing I had white embossed it, the ink isn't showing up very well in the photo.

The card is rather silly but the sentiment is real - Happy Birthday QUEEN!

Love the stamp set I used? We are lucky to be able to offer prizes to four winners -- two Wonderful Women sets by Kelly Purkey as well as two Dare to Dream sets from Hero Arts. Thanks to these wonderful sponsors. We will pick the winners of the sets from comments placed on all the blogs through March 19th 11:59pm ET and announce the winners on Joan Bardee's blog on March 21st.

And now let's hop!! Please join my fabulous friends and see what they've created today!
