Happy Birthday Joy!


I am here to share a card I did for my friend, Joy Taylor. It is her birthday and we have a mini blog hop in celebration of her. (Love ya, Joy!) And if you never have been to Joy’s blog, you must visit it. She has a ton of talent.

So here is my card for her. Cheery and happy. Has a clear window with the greeting (from a great My Favorite Things stamp set) and a green strip inside…

The background is the faux letterpress technique with Soft Sand Shadow Ink. Love the texture it gives.

Now be sure to head over to the blog of one of my favorite funny girls – Mary Dawn. (And if you want to catch the hop from the beginning, go HERE.)

See you soon! Happy birthday, Joy.
