Kimi's SURPRISE Birthday Blog Hop

 
 
Welcome to KIMI’S SURPRISE BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP!!...


  We are super excited to share her special day with you! If you just so happened to arrive at my blog and would like to start at the beginning, which is also the birthday girl’s blog, please hop on over to Pam's blog.  I’m sure she would LOVE your birthday wishes. If you arrived at my blog from Pam's blog then you are on the right track.

 
If you get lost along the way, here is the complete line up.
 
This is the card our sweet CT member Dorcas made for Kimi. She hasn't been feeling so well, but made a sweet card for Kimi. Isn't it lovely?? She wants to let Kimi know she appreciates her and really enjoys being a part of her team!
 
 
Onto my project.
 

I started with a plain wood plaque and put some Gesso then inked yellow and pink. Then, put Modge Podge to seal the inks.  I used a saying from the Silhouette Store and cut it out of vinyl. I applied more Modge Podge to keep the vinyl down.  I LOVE using Crackle and love the depth it gives this piece. I planned on using yellow flowers, but they didn't seem to strike my fancy on this. So... Along with my flowers and some greenery, I used Lovebug Creations "Sunflower" Rumple Ribbon for some pops of yellow! I LOVE this!! I lined the lace with "Green Leaves", although you can't see it.  I added a couple feathers and some stamens and TA-DA!! I certainly hope Kimi likes this. I made my own hangy thingie on the back and used a glob of glue as a "bumper" as to not scratch the walls. Pretty Clever huh? LOL ..  
 
Thank you for stopping by.. now, onto the marvelous  Stacey  to see what her surprise is!!
 
Happy Birthday my sweet friend. I am so happy you came into my life! You are like a sister to me! SUPER big birthday hugs...  
 
Big hugs...
 
Tanya
