HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Welcome to the start of my BFF Karen's Birthday Blog Hop!! A few of us wanted to help her celebrate her big day & because I know she has a FAB card today she is part of her own hop (how funny is that?!)



For my card I inked up MFT's Lovin' From the Oven because Karen's Mom makes the most FANTASTIC chocolate birthday cake!  I am honoured to say I have had her Mom's cake & Karen has also made me this cake - it is SOOOO good that I think I will need to celebrate my b-day when I visit her in the fall {wink, wink}

The image is stamped with mementos ink and coloured with copics.  I paper pieced her apron and bowl with My Minds Eye Quite Contrary line (one of Karen's favs).  The flowers are a punch - funny story Karen bought one & was telling me so naturally I said I "had to have it" but I wanted to make sure I had the little flower for layering - SHOCKINGLY I owned both!! 

This next card is from the WONDERFUL Leslie; who has fought this whole blog thing - but always stops  by to leave wonderful comments; I still think she should start a blog!!


She used Izzie has a prezzie & coloured the image with pencil & mineral spirits (she hasn't become addicted to copics yet either!)  She used a clear glaze pen on the ribbons on the prezzies & in Izzie's hair.

The next stop on the hop is the amazing JODI!!  Here is the master list of all the girls participating  & please make sure you stop by to wish Karen & very Happy Birthday!!


Have a great day

Dana
