Happy Birthday Lenae!

Post 2 of 4...click here for my CAS(E) this Sketch card.

I consider myself super lucky to have a great crafty group of friends.  We generally get together once a month.  We craft, eat + laugh, a ton...

Today we are celebrating Lenae's Birthday!  This girl always brings the best desserts to the gatherings...


I knew that I was going to ink up BB's Polynesian Paradise!  I know that Lenae loves to visit Hawaii, so this was a perfect choice!

cardstock:  stampin' up basic black, recollections/110/white  paper:  imaginisce/give thanks  stamps:  mft bb polynesian paradise  ink:  ranger archival black  other:  kuretake gansai tambi

The papers are by Imaginisce, Give Thanks.  Did you notice that the girl is stamped on MFT's  Dynamics Coffee Cup?  I colored her with a combo of distress markers and pads.  I kept her overall colors in the fall theme to match the paper.

How fun to have a fall birthday...my favorite time of the year...says the summer baby.

Here's to a magnificent year Lenae!

I hope you'll check out the other girls that are playing along:

amy <--- you're here!

Don't be shocked, I'm linking up to the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop...today is the final day of link ups, you have until 11:59 pm pacific!


I hope to be back with more coffee cards....
