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


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 Kimberly's Birthday!  I'm the start of the Happy Birthday Hop!  


Kimberly is FULL of talent and kindness.  It doesn't get much better than that, does it?!  She is our go-to Make 'n Take woman for our crafty group.  She recently taught her first class at Impress and she rocked her FULL class.

I have a BUNCH of NBUS (acronym by Darnell!) so since I seem to be on a tropical birthday kick (see Laura's card HERE), I thought I'd keep up the theme.

We recently went to Impress for their 30th Anniversary Sale.  Yay for 30 years, can you believe that?!  I'm pretty sure that for a brick & mortar shops that is absolutely awesome.  So many of the cute shops have closed down over the years.  Anywho's I picked up a bunch of fun tropical stamps:


Tropical makes me happy and I certainly hope it makes Kimberly happy.  

I inked up the Sunset Stripe stamps with Hero Arts Spring Brights Ombre' ink.  The Palm Tree and sentiment have been loaded up with Versafine Onyx.  The contrast in the spring brights and black makes me a happy crafter!

I coordinated the envelope liner with a panel from the Pink Paislee Take me Away paper pad.

Kimberly, I hope you have the most awesome Birthday Weekend!


Here's the hop listing for today!  Remember to stop at Kimberly's place to post Birthday Wishes!
