Surprise Birthday Blog Hop!

Surprise! Today we are celebrating Leanne Poe's birthday by throwing a fun birthday blog hop party! We thought we'd gather a few of her friends and design team members to celebrate her special day. If you came here from Eva’s blog you are in the right place. If you didn’t you may want to start at the beginning a Yumi & Fumi's Handmade Crafts blog.

Happy Birthday, Leanne!
I'm so excited to see you following your own dreams with your super cute new stamp company! They are sooooo cute. I loved meeting you at Winter CHA - we had such a blast, I only wish we could have hung out longer! I can't wait to see you at the next one. I hope you had a super fun birthday (so sorry my post is late ---- things totally got away from me this past week!) Here is a card I made for your birthday - you know how much I adore The Greeting Farm and since I didn't know about your new stamps (where have I been?!?!), I used some of my favorite stamps. I am definitely going to be placing an order soon, though! ;)

I colored the Amelia from the OA-Lovey Dovey set with Tim Holtz Distress Markers on watercolor paper. I paired it with Webster's Pages papers and used a super fun Action Wobble to pop up my image on the card. These are so awesome because you can mail your card flat but your recipient will get a lovely surprise when they pull it out.

Be sure to stop by Leanne's personal blog to wish her a Happy Birthday!! Next up on the hop is Danni.

Thanks for coming!

OMW!!! I love this!!! I also feel so blessed to have you join in the hop for my bday especially because I know how busy you are with your awesome magazine, D2C. We have that love of TGF in common. In fact, they are one of the reasons why I started on the card making path.
Renate' and I took our cue to start our new adventure because of people like you Carisa. Thanks for everything and I am looking forward to hanging out with you more at the next CHA.
Thank you for the birthday wishes girlfriend.
