Happy Birthday Ann!!!!

We're doing a little birthday hop to celebrate Ann Kranitz's birthday today!!! I first met Ann a couple of years ago at the original Stamp New England event. She's such a wonderful person and I'm lucky to have her as a friend!!!

Wishing you a wonderful day!!

I used a Pure Innocence image from MFT for my card (and by the way, it'll be arriving in your mailbox in the next day or two...just extending the celebrations...wink!). She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and done up with a combination of paper piecing and copic colouring. The patterned papers are all from my Basic Grey Olivia pad. I paired them with blush red light, blush red medium, baja blue and basic grey. I gave her patent shoes thanks to my clear glaze pen and added some Crystal Twinkles to the buckles. The layout is SSS92, yesterday's Sweet Stop Sketch.

Now you're off to see what amazing creation Jodi came up with. And don't forget to stop by Ann's blog and leave her some big birthday wishes!

Here's the entire list of hoppers, just in case anyone gets lost along the way.
