Happy Birthday Toni!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TONI!!


This is one of my favorite cards from Toni.
She has so many great ones it was hard to narrow it down!
  


I’m lucky enough to get to craft with some very sweet talented friends on a regular basis and let me tell you it is awesome, they are all very inspirational to me.   We are celebrating Toni’s birthday today.  I fell in love with Toni the minute I met her.  She is funny, extremely talented, smart and just all around a cool chick.  We share a habit too, well more than one but this one some would think is a bad habit.  We swear.  We are good at it too!  We are both no-nonsense a say what we think and we seem to work very well together as she is the design team coordinator for my shop. She is one of my go to people when I need advice or just want to think out loud. She (& Amy) inspired me and actually physically helped me clean my craft room, which is a VERY big thing.  Long story longer, Toni is awesome and I am so glad I can call her my friend.  

 

 

This Concord & 9th stamp is going to get a lot of use by me.  It is from their newest release and I love that it fills up the front of the card.  The sentiments that are in this set can stamp right over the top or you can cut them out or stamp them below the flowers and it works no matter what you do.  It reminds me of Toni as she always seems to come up with a way to make things work.  :)I stamped the image with versafine ink after memento started to bleed and the versafine worked great!  I watercolored the panel using Zig markers and I think it turned out pretty nice.

Happy Birthday Katie Blog Hop!

 




It’s my turn to host our birthday buddies blog hop!  I’m lucky enough to get to craft with some very sweet talented friends on a regular basis and let me tell you it is awesome, they are all very inspirational to me.   We are celebrating Katie’s birthday today.  Katie happens to be the sweetest girl.  Always ready with a smile and a kind word.  She is super funny too.  I am surprised that with all the talking and laughing we do at our gatherings that we get anything made at all!  We do get things made though as my card for Katie was made at one of those play days!   

 

 


 

 

The very talented Kimberly brought this card for us as a make and take and I loved her version (she is excellent with copics) but mine not so much.  Though as the weeks go by mine is growing on me.  It was a simple and fun card to make and makes me smile which is exactly what happens when I think of Katie!

Birthday Blog hop for Vicki!

I’m lucky enough to get to craft with some very talented friends on a regular basis and let me tell you it is awesome, they are all very inspirational to me.   We don’t get to craft with Vicki very often, because she lives in a different state but when we do we have a blast!  A few of us have met up to attend CHA and her and I met up when I was visiting her home state.  To celebrate Vicki on her birthday today we are having a blog hop! 
 
 
I made this card at the at one of our crafty get together using one of my favorite Stampin’ Up Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Kimberly came up with this beautiful layout.

 

  
Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Vicki!

I’m lucky enough to get to craft with some very talented friends on a regular basis and let me tell you it is awesome, they are all very inspirational to me.  Kimberly has a wonderful style she also happens to be one of the sweetest and kindest people I know. To celebrate Kimberly on her birthday today we are having a blog hop! 

I made this card at the last class we took together at Impress Rubber Stamps and it is the first but not the last, time I used Hero Arts Ombre Inks.  This is not a great example of how well they really stamp and they come in so many beautiful colors!    The picture doesn’t do it justice the Happy Birthday outlined with a silver glitter gelly roll pen and it adds lots of sparkle.


Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Kimberly!
