Happy Birthday Jodi!!!!

Today we're doing a little birthday hop in celebration of Jodi Collins!!! Happy Birthday GF!!! And even if you hadn't hinted so strongly at a blog hop (yes about it in her post here in the first lines!) I was still planning this little cyber party for you!!! Pardon??? Yes, that's right...and how could anyone resist a hint like that anyway! LOL!!! The list of well-wishers is a long one so grab a drink and settle into a comfy seat.  :-)

Happy Birthday Jodiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!

I just had to use my newest MFT Pure Innocence set, Hello Cupcake for Jodi's card. Isn't she the cutest little thing with the giant cupcake that's bigger than she is?!? The patterned papers are from my Cosmo Cricket Pixielicious mini deck and the layout is an MFT stamp club sketch from earlier this month, MFTWSC12012010. I used a couple of dienamics on this card, the little open scallop strip and the flower trio. Isn't the SU corduroy brad the perfect center for the flowers? There's also plenty of sparkle on this card...purple tiny twinkles on the scalloped strip and her shoe, purple glimmer twill ribbon, purple sprinkles on the cupcake thanks to a Spica glitter pen, and a shiny purple cherry! The orchid opulence circle was embossed with my circles and scallops impression plate to give it some texture.

Jodi, wishing you plenty of cupcakes and hugs on your birthday. Enjoy the celebration, my friend!

Next up on the hop is Leslie. But we still haven't convinced her to start a blog yet so I'm sharing her card right here. Although, with all the wonderful comments from readers I think we just may be persuading her a little!  :-)

From Leslie: "Happy Birthday Jodi! I feel like I know you even though we've not met yet - hope to fix that in 2011. Any friend of Karen's is a friend of mine - have a great birthday!"

Now you're off to see what the talented Jackie Pedro created, but don't forget to stop by Jodi's blog when you're done and leave her some birthday love.
