Does anyone want to sing a little Happy Birthday song with me? Today is my bloggin' buddy Tammy Hershberger's special day and a special day it is! I'm joining a few dozen amazing stampers to help roll out the red carpet for Tammy's birthday with a special kind of blog hop to wish her the best day ever! It's a SURPRISE Birthday hop! If you came here from Frances Byrne's blog.... you're on the right track! If not, be sure to hop on back to Barbara Anders' blog and start from the beginning!
On to my creation!
I don't know this.... but when I think of Tammy, I think she's a reader. I hope I'm right because I kind of based my whole card on that thought! ;-) I thought, what would be so nice to do on a special day? Curl up with a good book and a little TLC like a bunch of fresh flowers and just Ahhhhhhh... relax! So, thus -- the image from Flourishes From the Desk of. After stamping it on Flourishes Classic White paper, I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Seven. I thought this was fun since the shape reminds me of the open pages of a book! (I also used my new Grand Calibur to cut it out -- LOVE this new machine). I colored it up with Copics (RV32, RV34, RV00, RV02, B000, Y21, G82, G40) Add a fun little sentiment -- Dream Big (from the FLLC Enjoy the Ride set). Add a little fun and festive dp, some silk ribbon, some stitching and a fun little button and... almost done!
I also added some glitter glue to the centers of my flowers... see?
I should mention, for my card, I used one of the new March CardMaps that were just unveiled today! If you're looking for inspiration, you can check it out HERE! 10 new sketches with samples from ten designers (including moi!).
So, as I wrap up this post, I hope Tammy gets to kick up her feet and enjoy some down time! I'm so glad to have met this fine woman a few years ago and that we've been able to keep in touch! Tammy, you are one creative and funny gal and I hope you ahve the best birthday EVAH!!!! And, now, please hop along to Betty Wright's blog as the celebration continues!
