Happy Birthday Laura!






There's a group of us celebrating our sweet crafty friend, Laura!  We met at a Julie Ebersole's class at Impress.   I arrived a bit later than the other girls at the table and we stamped and chatted during the 2 classes.  All during class, I assumed Laura was Kimberly or Tonya's friend...haha...nope.  We instantly adopted Laura into our group♡  She is a super fabulous friend and I hope that she has a most wonderful birthday!

Here's a card that I made especially for Laura!


I combined the MFT Sweet Succulents set with Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid pad.   My black ink of choice?  Hero Arts Intense Black - it's waterproof and copic friendly!  I used my Zig Clean Color Markers to color everything.  I couldn't resist a strip of Recollections Gold Glitter cardstock.

My card was inspired by the MFT Sketch challenge:



We hope that you hop along with us!!!

I see that Laura has seen and loves the card you've made for her. Easy to see why...it's full of fun color, and those sweet succulent/cactus images are adorable. Pretty plaid, and love that strip of glitter too. Fun card, my friend. Hope your day is lovely. Bev
