Happy Birthday Joanne B!!!

Last year when my BFF moved to the states Em introduced her to Joanne B & when I went down last fall I met her - it was a HUGE thrill because I had been stalking Joanne's blog for a long time. This year when I went down we went on a road trip to Stamp Vermont & had a blast - when we were there Joanne showed me how to make her bows - you can see how because she made an awesome video!

I knew I had to use a Turtle Tot for her card because she LOVES these little guys (as do I), the layout is from TESC85. Turtle tot - birthday wishes is stamped with mementos ink onto cream cs and coloured with copics, I used my clear gel pen on the cake, and for the frosting I used brown liquid applique. For the candles I used my yellow atyou spica pen.

The cb is ivory, layered with Pomegranate cs, the ds paper is from Fancy Pants Delights; bubbles and I paper pierced around the edges (naturally!) I added some soft sky paper and layered the image on pomegranate cut with nesties. The sentiment is from Stamping bella, I masked the sentiment to stamp it into the circle. I added some ribbon with a bow (for Joanne) and a button - yes Wendy a button!!

Joanne, it's in the mail (or at least in my bag on it's way to the mail but it is stamped) BUT I was being so efficient and getting it sent to you that I sealed the envelope (stamp on already) before I took a picture, that's why it's taped - it's not some big check at the border!!

Don't forget Stamping Bella has a big release on Friday (I am so excited!!) and she will be posting this weeks challenge so make sure you check out Bloggabella

Thanks for stopping by - Happy Birthday Joanne have a great day
