PNW Birthday Buddies - Birthday Blog Hop - Happy Birthday Laura!

I'm happily a part of a group of friends that are all from the Pacific Northwest that celebrate each other birthdays!  Today we're celebrating the lovely Laura Norris:  You should have arrived here from the awesome Toni's blog!  If not, start at the beginning which is the Birthday Hostess with the Mostess, Tonya!

I decided to do a tropical theme birthday card for Laura.  She was just recently in Hawaii and who doesn't love Hawaii?

I combined the Essentials by Ellen - Stay Golden with My Favorite Things - Polynesian Paradise.  I love that sentiment from the Stay Golden set.  Do you spy her Golden Pineapple crown?  It's been stamped in Delicata Gold.

Here's the interior, a sentiment from the Polynesian Paradise set:

So Laura and I are weekly walking buddies!  That sentiment is perfect-o!

Laura, I hope you're enjoying the most fabulous Birthday Weekend.  You are the sweetest friend!

My card was inspired by the Ellen Hutson LLC Pin-Sights Challenge:

I was inspired by the colors and the block with the pink + yellow reminded me of tropical goodness!

Next up is the lovely Lisa Lara!

Here's the full listing in case you get lost along the way:

happy things!

Hello and Happy Saturday!  I started this card yesterday and finished it up this morning.  I have so many paper collections, this one is Basic Grey - Paper Cottage.  Pure scrappy card, no stamping:

Isn't that die cut sticker so much fun?!  Love the fantastic colors....

I was inspired by Kerry's Sip and Share challenge over on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog!

Yesterday was such a beautiful day in the PNW!  We took advantage of the gorgeous weather and took a quick flight to Friday Harbor and had dinner.  So fun!
