A Surprise Birthday Bash for Kim

Well, today we are jumping the gun and celebrating a special early birthday for one of the greatest ladies in the stamping industry--none other than our very own and VERY SPECIAL Kim van der Sanden! So without further adieu, let me shout HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KIM! We love you!!! Kim, I just can't tell you how much you mean to my family and I. I love designing for you and I still can't believe I have the privilege of doing so. Thank you for all you do and I hope your birthday is splendiferous!! Happy 29th (again)!!

I thought I'd make her this card using Fred Bear Has a Birthday. He's just so cute! Lots of layers, lots of stitching and even the inside is tricked out with Fred's happy little mug! I hope you like it, girlie! Be sure and head over to Kim's blog to wish her a Happy Birthday yourself!!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Use a simple portion of a stamped image as your focal point of your project or go crazy and decorate the inside of your card with one to carry along the theme. It only takes a little extra time. I have to admit that I don't do this every time, but Kim was worth the extra effort, don't you think?
