Happy Birthday Lori!

Hi everyone!!  Happy Wednesday!!! 

We have an absolute MOB of people today who have gathered to wish our DEAR friend, the FABULOUS Lori Craig, and VERY VERY Happy Birthday!!!  Surprise Lori!

Lori is, by FAR, one of the sweetest people I know.  When it came time to create a card for her, I knew I wanted to use the DARLING Sweet Friends set from Taylored Expressions!  I started with the current Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge, TESC138 for my layout.  This is SUCH a fun sketch!

All of the patterned paper is Lime Twist Life of The Party from My Minds Eye, and after putting all the papers together, I stamped three of the treats from Sweet Friends in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored them all with Copic Markers.  I then cut them out and attached them to the card with Foam Tape.

The sentiment is PERFECT for sweet Lori, "Happy Birthday To One Of The Sweetest People I Know", and I stamped it again in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and created a little flag.  I anchored it to my card with a double flower cut from the same Life Of The Party paper using the Friendship Blooms Dies.  I added a button and some twine to finish it off.

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card today:

Lori, I hope you have a WONDERFUL Birthday and that this year is full of love and happiness!!  I SO wish I was able to head to CHA this summer so I could give you a big hug in person, but I am sending you virtual hugs now!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
