Happy Birthday Katie!!!






Hello Hello!

There's a group of us that get together on a semi-regular basis...we craft a little, eat a little and laugh a lot.  Such an awesome group of gals that I all met through blogging!  Today we're celebrating Katie Brooks' Birthday!!!!!

The fun starts at my blog!  Here's my card that I made especially for the Birthday Girl:

cardstock:  stampin' up basic black, ranger watercolor paper  paper:  simple stories/i am  stamps:  avery elle/stay fresh  ink:  ranger/archival/black  other:  avery elle/stay fresh elle-ments, icraft deco foil/foam adhesive,  kuretake gansai tambi

Almost everything on this card is new...the Avery Elle Stay Fresh stamps/die <---first time using them!  Love anything and everything tropical.  At our last Julie Ebersole Class we used Kuretake Gansai Tambi and foil {check + check}.

That foil is a rascal to photog...believe me, it's glorious and doesn't look like mercury glass...it's a solid gold.

Katie, I hope you have a most fabulous day!  You are thee sweetest!!  I love your outlook on life and your crafty style!  I'm so glad that we're friends♡

Now hippety hop over to Kate's blog!  If you get lost along the way, here's the hop list!  Leave a comment on all the blogs and then come back here and let me know...I'll put your name in a drawing for a $10 gift card to a store of your choice!  Commenting will stay open through Friday, July 3rd at 11:59 pm pacific.

Katie ← Birthday Girl!
