Happy Birthday Nancy!


Today is Nancy McKinney's birthday and we're celebrating her by giving her a little birthday card blog hop!  If you are not familiar with Nancy, she is the Whimsical Wishes illustrator for Taylored Expressions and I thought it would be fun to use one of her images for her card.  The hop starts at Karen Motz's blog, so if you happened here by chance, you really should start from the beginning to see all the good eye candy.

I started with an old Sweet Sunday Sketch and chose papers from the Togetherness Mini Deck from Cosmo Cricket and paired with images from In the Park.  The scalloped edge is the Scalloped Eyelet Border Die and I added a little ivory grograin ribbon and Bow-Easy bow on the side.

Happy birthday, Nancy!  I wish I could be there in person to raise a glass and have lots and grins and giggles - you are super fabulous!!

Sankari is next on the hop, so please continue on in wishing Nancy a wonderful birthday.

Karen
