Happy Birthday Kim!!

Good morning everyone!!

Today is Kim Yu's birthday and a few of us are celebrating her special day.  Make sure to stop by the Yumi & Fumi Handmade blog to see what the rest of the DT created and see which special guests are also participating.

When I first met Kim it was while she was on the TGF DT.  Little did I know that I would also be on the same team just at different times.  We also had a chance to work at Winter CHA and became fast friends. I have been a follower of her blog since I started mine.  She's an amazing crafter and a dedicated mom.  Always so creative and very generous.  I was so happy to find out that she lived so very close that we could possibly hang out and since then we've been able to meet up for lunch. Hoping to one day get a craft session going with her. I would definitely love to see her put something together.

I chose Fumi with Gift from Yumi & Fumi Handmade for my card and papers from BG Plumeria.

This card is pretty huge! It's actually a little over 6x6!  That's huge! I didn't want to break up that pretty paper so kept it as is.  As you can see I used a bunch of Spellbinders and punches. I kept it pretty simple.  Just layered up papers.  Oh I did add that punched border on the side, a tag is under that big bow and some hoarded lace to the top for a little girly touch.  There are some embossed parts too which tie into our current challenge at Y&FH.  See that sentiment?  I got that from Jenny.  It's perfect for my card because of the pretty pink color and well the sentiment.

Make sure to stop by Kim's blog and wish her a Happy Birthday.  Also make sure to stop by the Y&FH blog to see the rest of the team's birthday shares.

Wishing you all the best today and always Kim!! Happy Birthday friend!!

Have a great day everyone and Mahalo for stopping by!!
