JUG-Head Birthday Blog Hop!

Hi friends!  I'm popping in real quick to send you hopping along to wish our sweet, JUG-Head, Elise a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  You are more than welcome to play along, make a card for Elise and link it up to the Linky widget below - I'm sure she would be delighted!  My card layout was inspired by the MTME Pretty Patterns sketch (MTMEPPS04).
I decided to make a pretty, burnt edge flower for our lovely Elise :]  I also added some heartfelt, hand stitching to Elise's card...hopefully is accentuates the paper (Cheerful Chirps) how I wanted it to!  I used one of my new cut files, Occasional Label for my top, yellow panel, adorned the bloom with a pearl brad and some prima leaves, added my sentiments (Birthday is embossed in white), and tied it off with some pretty, satin ribbon!  Girly card for my dear friend :]


Hope it's half as amazing as you are, my friend!

Okay, now hop along to the next crafter in the lineup and don't forget to end at Elise's blog to pass along some fun birthday wishes!

Elise LOVES it! She really DOES!

I can say that with much, much authority - cause SHE'S me! I'm her! I'm AMAZED! Twitching. Laughing, smiling... dabbing a tear, or two, or 1,000! THIS is the BEST way to turn {a big, scary NUMBER!} a LOT older... I'm telling YOU! THE kindness, generosity of YOUR TIME and amazing talent... {Eeeeeeek!} I'm BURNT like the edges of that drop-dead GORGEOUS flower - I'm just SMOKIN' from the thoughtfulness of all-o-you'ds ... AND especially YOU {Dana explained how you created this whole thing... OMG! Girl, I'm NOT worthy! I'm NOT worthy!} But I SURE am HAPPY and GRATEFUL! And loving my DARLING friends! OMG! Do I feel LUCKY!?! YOU BET I DO! I have the greatest friends in the blog-o-sphere and BEYOND! I KNOW how busy you are - the thought of you taking EXTRA time to assemble all that you did AND THEN CREATE this exquisite card... Okay. Tears, AGAIN! I love it! I love YOU! I'm sooooooo happy! I'm HONORED to be a Jug-HEAD {what a FANTASTIC group!} But most of all, so grateful to have found this crafty, generous, kind and beautiful corner of blogland! THANK YOU, Kristin! YOU made my DAY!
