Happy Birthday Kathy!!


We're having a special birthday celebration over at the Yumi & Fumi blog for Kathy from Team Fumi!!  It's her birthday today and we decided to celebrate her turning another year "younger" with Kathy's very own birthday blog post.  Stop by the Y&FH blog to see all the pretty cards and projects created for Kathy's special day.

Kathy was the one that got me to go to stamp camp and she's also someone that I find tons of inspiration from.  She's super nice, a talented crafter and is fun to be around.  We're always laughing about something. For her card I chose to use the current photo inspiration for Challenge # 25 at Yumi & Fumi Handmade.  If you haven't been by yet, just click on the link below.  Here is a picture of the photo and if you didn't know... It's anything goes.

Photo inspiration - CH #25

With summer now coming to an end and the chill of fall creeping in we wanted to end September with pretty bright colors before heading in to those lovely Fall ones. I'm lucky that one of Kathy's favorite colors is green!  Yay!! So my project ties in well for both.  Sweet!!  Here's my card featuring Yumi with Bookbag

Happy Birthday with Yumi Bookbag

I had a lot of fun making this one.  I masked Yumi first and taking a lantern rubber stamp I did a grouping of them right behind her.  The flowers are actually ribbon that I colored using a couple of Copics.  I added a touch of bling with the rhinestones and the confetti.  I mounted/layered up some white cardstock with a piece of green cardstock and mounted it all on to the peach card.   The sentiment is from Island Scrapbooking which I colored to match the rest of the card.

Kathy, Happy Birthday!!  I want you to know how much I appreciate our friendship and how much I cherish you.  May your birthday be blessed and fun and I hope all your wishes come true.  Love ya girl!!

Now don't forget to stop by Kathy's blog to wish her a Happy Birthday.  Thanks a lot for stopping by, have a great day!!

Leanne!!! You always seem to floor me with your new toys in the stamping world!! I love the lanterns...it looks as though you took it right from the inspiration photo as they are so identical!! Yes, I do love the colors. The bling adds such a nice touch as if I am on a dance floor like Denice said haha. Thanks for the shout outs and I definitely cherish your friendship too! XOXO -Kathy
