Happy Birthday Bev!

Hi there everyone!

Today is a very special day for a very special lady out there in blog land. It is Bevs birthday! Bev is the owner of the Happy Dance blog - what a cool name! 

I have to say that I don't know Bev, but since I have been asked by Darnell and Ardyth to join in the linky party for this lovely lady, how could I say no?

So, I did a bit of 'Bev Stalking'. 

From what I could tell, Bev is a lover of CAS. A woman after my own heart. Who doesn't love a good CAS card? All that white space...... ahhhhhhh..... whoops, I digress......

More stalking found that Bev loves the simple things in life. Having 8 children and 20 grandchildren, she is obviously a family person. Just from having a look around, Bev chooses to celebrate life (with a happy dance here and there) and it certainly shows in her cardmaking.

Onto my card -

I wanted to use bright and happy colours for Bev. I started off knowing that I had to use my new Lil' Inker Stitched Balloon dies. Aren't they so cute!! I used some of the left over stars to embellish the card too. I hand drew the balloon strings and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Obviously I wanted to keep my card pretty CAS just for Bev. 

There you go! Happy Birthday Bev! I hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy the cards that everyone has prepared for you. Enjoy!!!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

ABC Challenge - Tic Tac Toe (I chose Dies / Sentiment / Stitching (real or faux)

Thanks so much for looking xx
