Happy Birthday Julie! Blog Hop + Video

I am here today with a card for one of my favorite people in the world – the wonderful, happy, kind, generous, encouraging, talented and so very awesome Julie Ebersole. (Several of us are blog hopping in her honor, so be sure to keep reading.)

And since Julie is so awesome, I knew just what to create…

Yes, she is awesome…

Lots of shine under that fabulous circle burst die

HERE is the die and HERE is the stamp set. They are fabulous…


Be sure to head over to the sweet Kristina Werner’s blog next. And to start at the beginning, you can go to Ellen Hutson’s The CLASSroom blog. Enjoy!

Happy birthday, Julie. Love you and so very blessed to call you my friend.
