Hi everyone! I am super excited to be asked by my good friend Lizzie to participate in her week long Birthday Bash on her blog. She affectionately calls herself my #1 fan and I'm so honored (though I do not feel worthy, hehe) I've known her for quite a bit, going all the way back to a site called CafeMom I think (or something like that, don't visit that site all that often now that I've got facebook. LOL) We were pregnant with our 3rd babies together and they are only a couple months apart in age now. I love her spunk and her confidence in everything she does. It's something I definitely draw inspiration from all the time. She has been my right hand girl in helping me with a magazine called Designed To Color and if it hadn't been for her encouragement I would proabably still be waffling about doing it! So, thank you Lizzie, for everything you do and represent.
So, on to my card for her. I started doing something simple but then I decided, wait! We LOVE to color so I had to color an image especially for her. So, I pulled out this Kraftin Kimmie stamp and colored her up Lizzie style with ginger hair using Copics! I paired her with some fabulous October Afternoon papers from the cakewalk collection and used a sketch from Deconstructed Sketch to pull it all together. I love using a sketch when I feel like I'm in a design rut.
So, there you have it! Happy Birthday, Lizzie!!! And it's not a brithday without some prezzies, right!? So, in honor of Lizzie's birthday and our work together on Designed To Color, I'm giving away to one lucky winner a copy of our Aug/Sept & Oct/Nov issues! Good luck to all who enter.
