surprise birthday blog hop for Darlene...

We wanted to wish
Darlene a  very HAPPBIRTHDAY today in a special way!
I met Darlene when I was chosen to be on The Sisterhood of Crafters Design Team.  And since then...well...we are on a few other DT's together!  I've never met her, but I find her to be so giving, sweet, compassionate and supportive!
Hope you will join in the fun and get some amazing birthday card ideas along the way.
We also hope you will stop over to Darlene's blog and wish her a
Happy Birthday !
Let the party begin!!!!

Sandi Lee....you are here!!
Darlene....our birthday girl!

Here's my card.....
supplies: paper-hip hip hooray (american crafts) and white cs (neenah), just splendid (my mind's eye); ink-R43(copic marker); stamp-birthday kitty (sami stamps) and added text in picmonkey; accessories-wooden heart (studio calico).

For this card, I first printed on the white cs.  Then I covered where it printed with my confetti cs.  On another one I printed, I covered it with just a small piece for the balloon.  And on another copy, I covered it with the small piece of gray from my mind's eye.  I ran them all  through the printer again.  I cut my pieces and VOILA...my card was done!  A special shout out thanks to Sami over at Sami Stamps for sending me my Kitty birthday image as a prize!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!
Next stop is Darlene....or you can start all over!!!
I am entering this in the Seize the Birthday...Anything Goes Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!
