Happy Birthday WENDY!!

Well, Happy Birthday out there to all ya'll January birthday-ers like me AND WENDY BOND! I was shaken but not stirred when my friend Karen Motz secretly "007" asked me a while back if I'd like to be a part of a covert surprise blog hop for Wendy of Bond Girl Bliss and of course I couldn't pass up that mission! I've been a big fan of Wendy's artwork ever since she burst onto the stamping scene (and she always uses some of the best stamps around!). So if you're just now jumping onto the birthday train, be sure and start back at the beginning to see everyone's happiness and love for Wendy over on Karen's blog, ok?

It was not even close to impossible to pick out a fun older set from VERVE to use for a sweet birthday card with some shabby-chic style. I readily jumped into action with this set, Beautiful Kindness, because Wendy is...Simply Fabulous. I used this week's MOJO Monday sketch (MOJO175) that works perfectly with the butterfly being the center of attention and of course I had to give her a little sparkle with some pink flatback rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty. Bliss!

Now it's time to head on over to Elaine's blog, Quixotic Cards for some pleasure galore. HAPPY BIRTHDAY WENDY! Here's hoping you have a simply FABULOUS day!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Just an fyi that has nothing to do with this card. Don't try to put Martha Stewart glitter just lose in an organza (organdy?) drawstring bag. It goes right through it. Don't ask me how I know this. I don't want to talk about it. I will only further comment to say that yes, I never thought for a second that it would be a problem and that Sage is once again glitterfied along with my kitchen counter and floor.

Paper: Vintage Cream, Black (PTI), Sno Cone, Cotton Candy (MFT), Paper Girl (Girls Paperie), Cork Sheets
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko)
