Happy Birthday, Lori!
If you've stumbled across my blog, then I'm so happy you did! If you're following the Birthday Blog Hop then you should have made your way here from ClearlyiStamp, which is also the start of the hop! As you may have already read, this hop is purely a way for the Clear Dollar Stamps DT to say Happy Birthday to our wonderful Lori, the owner of CDS.
I met Lori through CDS and blog-land roughly a year and a half ago. I started working on her Design Team in May of 2009, and can only hope that I have blessed her and CDS as much as they have blessed me. Lori is such a wonderful person that has become a friend, and I am so glad that she is my sister in Christ. Even though I've never met her face-to-face, I can truly say that I love her!
I made this card for her using an oldie, but a goodie from CDS called Charlie Daisy. The papers I used are called Tropical Mist, Spruce Needle, and Bubble Gum, which are from CDS's Clearly Coordinating Collections. The little clouds were made by cutting out a cloud image on a post-it note and masking it down while I sponged around it. . .cool effect don't you think?
CDS stamps: Charlie Daisy
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Handsome Hunter, Baja Breeze
Paper: Tropical Mist, Spruce Needle, Bubble Gum (all CDS), Cosmo Crickey DeLovely dp
Accessories: Copics, sponge, button, twine, Spruce Needle ribbon (CDS), scallop edge punch
This was supposed to be a surprise, and I sure hope that Lori was! The next place you'll go along the hop is to Katie's blog. When you're done ooohing and aaaaahing over what Katie made for Lori, be sure to head over to Lori's blog and wish her a very happy birthday, because she is one special lady ;D
