Happy Belated Birthday Marybeth!





I am sure that you know Marybeth from Marybeth's Time for Paper! Well today we are having a surprise Blog Hop in honour of her birthday that was earlier this month! Joyce from cards-by-the-sea and Cathy from Empty Nest Crafter are our hosts for today's blog hop. 

Marybeth is one the sweetest ladies in blogland and also one of my very first blogging friends. She always leaves the sweetest comments and creates the most gorgeous cards. If you haven't gone before you should go visit her blog to see her incredible talent!

I had already mailed off a card to her for her birthday when this blog hop came light, so an extra happy birthday because you now have two cards! ;)

I am also going to submit this card to the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, Seize the Sketch, Seize the Birthday and the Lil' Inkers Birthday Challenge challenges.  With this week`s Tuesday Trigger I was inspired by the pretty flower and the colours. I just picked this paper up last week and it seemed perfect for the occasion!




 



Enjoy your blog hop Marybeth I know you are surprised!  Have a wonderful weekend!

This is so cute and you had me guessing where you got that extra big stitched banner! Why have I never thought of it? Great idea and such a pretty, cheerful card for Marybeth. Love the combination of patterned papers and the white embossing for the sentiment. Marybeth is going to love this!

Stunning Tracey!! This is such a bright and happy card! Love those colors, and that little bit of glitter paper peeking out. Sweet little sentiment flag too. I'll bet Marybeth just loves this to bits!! Bev

What a bright, pretty card Tracey and I love how you mixed the colours and patterns. Great job!

Marybeth said...

Tracy this was such a fun and huge surprise!
Two cards I would say I am a lucky girl. I loved the first one you sent as well. This is gorgeous and I am guessing that you used the LI banner and made it larger by scooting it over…. Right! You are just too smart!
I feel so blessed to call you friend! It has been a joy to see you excel and exceeded in the stamp world. I can say I knew you when :) friend!
Thank you for taking time to make an extra card and join this lovely hop from Joyce and Cathy!

Terrific paper - love the bold, bright patterns - perfect for a fun birthday card!

Joyce said...

I love this card--such a fun way to combine all those patterned papers. And, how clever are you to have one card for all these different challenges. Your cake looks scrumptious, too. It looks like a giant fondant loopsy daisy ribbon bow. Fun, fun, fun to see you at marybeth's party.
