Birthday Party Across the Miles

taylor-birthday blinkie

Hello! Welcome to this Fantasy Birthday Tour for my sweet friend Taylor VanBruggen.  Since we couldn't all be together today to throw a party we're having a virtual Birthday Party Across the Miles and everyone is invited to come along!  And what's a fantasy party without fantasy gifts?  If money were no object, this would be my gift to you Taylor… an incredibly fun pendant called Peace Love and Cupcakes by Elisa Gomez.  Gah… so cute!


Hopefully you came here from Dawn Easton's blog, but if you didn't you might want to start this Fantasy Birthday Tour at the beginning on Jami Sibley's blog.  Next up is the talented Charmaine Ikach."

Even though I didn’t buy the necklace I did make a super special card for Taylor and actually mailed it.  On Thursday morning… so it may have arrived on time.   I used Friendship Blooms to create a cheery flower scene and the sentiment is from Labels of Love.


After stamping, coloring and cutting out the flowers I added Turquoise Glitter Candy Dots to the flower centers and then added Glossy Accents and Crystal Fine Glitter.


Next up on the blog hop is Charmaine Ikach!  And don’t forget to leave a little love for Taylor at her blog!  Happy Birthday Taylor! :)

  6. I just had one of those "aha" moments looking at your card. Why did it never occur to me to use labels of love like that - without the ribbon slots??? Duh! Thanks for that! Your card is really pretty!


Thanks for your sweet comments! I love hearing from you. :)
