Happy Birthday Bond!!!

Today is a very special day for Bond, Wendy Bond! (I just love saying  that!) It's her birthday and there are a bunch of people sending well wishes so we've organized a little birthday hop. Grab a cuppa joe, or a glass of wine (it's 5pm somewhere, right?), sit back and check out all the cuteness!!

Happy Birthday Wendy!!!

Of course I needed to use an image that was alcohol related...for those of you who don't know Wendy, she adores her wine, so I reached for my Cheers a la mode image from MFT and paired her with this week's Splitcoast sketch SC317.

She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and done up with a combo of paper piecing and copics. I added a couple coats of clear glaze pen to the glass. The patterned is Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934. I used my faux crochet border die-namic to jazz up the edge and finished it with a rolled felt rose (the larger of the mini roses die-namic).

Have a fabulous birthday Wendy!!! Now you're off to see what Dana White created! When you're done hopping, be sure to head over to Wendy's blog and leave her some birthday love.
