Happy Birthday Laura!

 
!!Happy Birthday Laura!!

Please join us in wishing our friend Laura a very happy birthday!  We met Laura at a local card class and fell in love with her.  I think she is the calmest of the group.  Although I think she gets nervous sometimes when going places with a couple of us, who shall remain unnamed, we always get where we were going albeit via “off ramps and parking lots” and there is LOTS of laughing along the way.  
 

We have a wonderful group of girls and I encourage you to find crafters in your area to get together with and hopefully you realize, like I did, that you aren’t the only hoarder collector out there and meet some truly wonderful people!  I promise you won’t regret it! 

I used the new Concord and 9th Happy Word Stamps and Happy Card Frame Dies.  I watercolored the flower with zigs and a water-brush.





Laura I hope you are surrounded by love and laughter today and throughout the coming year! Happy Birthday my friend.

!!Happy Birthday Kathryn!!

 

It’s time for our crafty group to celebrate the birthday of the lovely and uber talented Kathryn of Pinned and Penned!  Kathryn is a unique and fascinating person with a huge heart, I love talking with her about health, education and COFFEE!

I used the Beautiful You stamp set from Stampin’ Up and a technique from Sandi MacIver.

Time for the Papertrey Ink Dec Blog Hop!
This month’s inspiration photo:
Supplies:  PTI Snowflake Die, Cardstock, Hibiscus Burst Ink; Concord & 9th Joy Die, Snowflake Stamp;
Versamark Dazzle Ink, Nuvo Sparkle Dust Glitter, Wink of Stella
 

But darn it is hard to get a good picture when it is dark outside.  This is much prettier in real life and the colors match the inspiration photo.  The letters have just a touch of wink of stella on them as they seemed too flat on top of the very sparkly snowflake.  I added the versamark snowflakes in the background just to add a touch of something as it looked naked to me.  Hope your holidays are full of JOY!

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!
