happy birthday kimberly!!




I consider myself a lucky girl.  

I have had the wonderful opportunity to make some great in-real-life crafty friends.  One of them is Kimberly.  I can't remember how I stumbled onto Kimberly's blog but the minute I did, I was absolutely smitten with her style & work.  Today is Kimberly's birthday and there is a group of us that are doing a birthday blog hop for her!

Amy  <-- you're here!
Kate
Kimberly <-- birthday girl!

Just a handful of girls from our Crafty Group that tries to get together on a monthly basis.  I score because everyone comes to my house {I absolutely STINK at packing for crafty gatherings!} and Kimberly always steps up to the plate with awesome Make 'n Takes.  It's a regular party...lots of laughing, stories, crafting and eating!

I've been out of town so I wanted to share this card that I haven't posted to my blog!  It's part of the Reverse Confetti Newsletter {sign up here for news, special features and sales!}. 


I was inspired by this print:


Aqua + Orange = Yes, Please!

Kimberly has a way of combine color and images...more on that in a smidge.  

Reverse Confetti Fresh 'n Fruity stamps/confetti cuts, Petals 'n Posies Confetti Cuts, Tag Me, Too Confetti Cuts

colors
blooms
fruit

I used Reverse Confetti's Fresh 'n Fruity stamps/confetti cuts, Petals 'n Posies Confetti Cuts, Tag Me, Too Confetti Cuts!

I threw in texture {craft foam, felt and enamel dots!}.

Here are some of my FAV's from Kimberly:





I hope that you hop along with us!

Amy  <-- you're here!
Kate
Kimberly <-- birthday girl!

Leave a comment as you hop along and on Sunday, May 3rd, I'll draw a random winner for a $15 Butterfly Reflections Ink Gift Card!

the felt made a fun addition to the card. We often forget that we don't have to stick with just paper.
