Happy Birthday Jodi!!

That's right!  It's my pal Jodi Collins' birthday today and we celebrating her by showering her with some blog love!  The party started over at Karen Motz's blog and she has a complete list of hoppers there and if you came to my blog through Jessica Diedrich, you're right on schedule.

I was so lucky to have met Miss Bon Jodi in real life when we helped out in the Taylored Expressions booth at CHA in January and let me tell you, this girl will make you laugh! Thanks for the ab workout, sister!!  Never a dull moment, HUH??!!???

I decided to go sweet and simple for her card using FTL121 for the layout.  I stamped the stems from Friendship Blooms in Olive Pastel fluid chalk ink and used some Material Girl buttons for the flowers with Baker's Twine bows.  I used the Leafy Branch Die underneath the image for a little accent.  The sentiment is from In the Park - and no, it's NOT 'Happy_Birthday'.  That was just an unfortunate grain in the paper getting in the way of my sentiment, but it still made me giggle.  I don't think I could have lined that up on purpose!  The scallops are made from the Medium Scallops Die.

Jodi's birthday celebration continues over at Wendy Bond's blog, so please keep the party going and give Jodi some birthday love over at her blog too :)




See you back soon!
Karen
