Happy Birthday Tonya!!!







Today is a special day...it's my friend Tonya's birthday!   I'm blessed to have her as a friend, she makes me laugh, she enables my shopping habits (I enable hers too!) and she's really just a good person.

Our Crafty group is celebrating her day, we'd love for you to check out everyone's projects!

Here's mine:

 cardstock:  bazzill marshmallow  stamps:  simon says stamp/stamptember 2015 tim holtz  ink:  ranger archival black  other:  peerless watercolors

I'm suppose to be on a crafty buying freeze but I couldn't help buying the STAMPtember Tim Holtz Exclusive:


Yes, I thought of doing the party hat, it's super cute but Tonya loves coffee as much as I do so I had to ink up the frap!  I was totally inspired by the lovely Anna-Karin...I loved her random watercoloring on her project.  I picked Seahawk colors because yup, she's a diehard Seahawks fan!  I even picked up the Seahawks Starbucks Gift Card especially for Tonya.

I was also inspired by CAS(E) this sketch:


I'm also linking up to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge:


USE A STAMP AND BLOG HOP

We'd love for you to check out everyone's birthday post:

I am in love with your card! That frap in the seahawks colors is totally awesome! You all have become very special to me and thank you so much for thinking of me. OMG I just reread that the card is for me too, you are so sweet, we have to get together and use the card and maybe shop a little too. :) I have wet things running down my cheeks and I don't cry so I'm not sure what they are...
