Happy Birthday, CAROL!!! {a special blog hop}

Hello, friends:}

I was asked to join in a VERY special blog hop celebrating Carol's birthday! Happy birthday, Carol!!!!!! **Please click HERE for the entire list of blogs!!! Several of my crafty friends are joining in this hop!!! HOOOOOOORAY:) 

Since we are celebrating Carol, I thought I would use some of the reasons I love Carol for my card design. 

  1. Carol is one of my FAV friends- so I'm using some of my FAV papers (Heidi Swapp Serendipity).
  2. Carol leaves so many comments on my blog/Virtual Smooches blog/etc- so I'm using my favorite stamps and dies by Paper Smooches
  3. I love that Carol joins in the fun with the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge- so I'm entering this card in this week's challenge (ANYTHING GOES)!!! 
  4. I love that I have an "international" friend!! Right now it's snowing up there- so I thought I would create a neon and bright card (to represent the weather here in FL!)!! 
There's so much more that I love about Carol... but I didn't want you to miss out on her card! LOL! I used some pretty diagonal glittered paper for the background and then paper pieced a cupcake from the PS Hullabaloo stamp set. **NOTE: Carol, I hope that you like cupcakes! LOL! I created elements by die cutting a vellum flag/banner- LOOOOVE! Other dies I used include PS Word Bubbles and Hearts
You can't see it-- but the vellum banner goes above the card! LOVE it! 
Tsukinkeo: VersaMark, Memento Luxe: Wedding Dress, Espresso Truffle
Imagine CraftsIridescent embossing powder

That's it for me today! Carol, I hope that you have a fabulous birthday! Celebrate you and eat some cake for us:) Psalm 118:24 Love you TONS!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and love/support mean so much to me! Have a blessed day:)

Svannah, I loooooooove everything about this post. The love you have for me I'm reflecting back to you! From the first time I saw your posts, then through to your cards, on to your VS projects, further on to your comments on my blog and our other notes/messages, I knew that our paths were 'meant' to cross, and join! I've said this before, but it bears repeating: you truly are a gift from God! Be it your cheerful posts, your stunning cards, your messages and photos, your engaging, illuminating videos: you are a gift! You bring me joy, inspiration, encouragement, new perspective and a smile, every single day! Yes indeed, Savannah, I truly do looooove you!! And speaking of love: eeeeeee!!! How awesome and darling is this sweet card! Cupcakes *arms waving wildly, cheering the cupcake* LOVE cupcakes and this little cutie patootie is simply perfect! The whole combination (adding that bright, cheer dp to my list!)...swooon!! I'm ecstatic you joined this party; you sharing in this celebration during a most hectic, busy time of year, has made 'fabulous and awesome,' (that Bev - she is just so sweet, like you!) even more fabulous and awesome! Sooo glad you're in my life, Savannah, and I hope you'll be in it for a long, long time to come! wishes for an outstanding, special day - as outstanding and special as you've made mine! Hugs X Hugs~c
