Birthday Blog Hop!

Happy Sunday! Thanks for stopping by! Welcome to the Birthday blog hop celebrating the fabulous Laurie Willison's birthday! Laurie is such a sweet person and an extremely talented stamper. I look at her cards in their CAS style and i'm awed each time! Happy Birthday, Friend!


Ok, so we have some extra special cards to share with you guys, so be sure and visit each blog! Here is my card {um, that JUST got into the mailbox yesterday, so it will be a *tad* late getting to Laurie..lol}








I used the new Background Basics: Chevron Stripes set from Papertrey. It was fairly easy to line up the chevrons (they do not reach fully across the card stock on the diagonal). You HAVE to love clear stamps if for no other reason than this!! I also used the "make a wish" from Think Big Favorites 1 and part of a sentiment in the Big Birthday Wishes sets. I saw the colors on this week's Color Cue and was immediately drawn to them.


Well, that's it. Don't forget to stop in and see what the other ladies have done. Just know that it is fabulous!


Here is a listing of all of the participants:

I love this card--so clever to turn the chevrons. They look great. And a great use of that color scheme.
