Happy Birthday Nancy!!!!!!

Today we're doing a special birthday blog hop for Nancy McKinney. It's your special day Nancy so sit back and enjoy the hop!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I've been friends with Nancy since 2005, when we worked together at a scrapbooking store, and although we don't live near each other anymore, we still get together for a Starbucks when I'm home visiting. Nancy illustrates the Whimsical Wishes line of stamps for Taylored Expressions so I decided to use a set that she illustrated...Sweet Occasions. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured with copics. I paper pieced the orange frame around the image using patterned paper from KI's Paisley Parade collection. I added green sparkle to the letters with my Spica glitter pen and made the cherry shiny with my clear glaze pen. I used my open scallop border punch along the bottom of the card and added some crystal Twinkles for sparkle, then I used one of the shapes from garden party blooms dies for the flower.

I know you'll have fun hopping along and be sure to head over to Nancy's blog to wish her happy birthday.

Next you're off to see what the very talented Regina Mangum created.

Just in case you get lost, here's a list of all the hoppers:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
