Happy Birthday Renate'!!


Guess what?  Today's Ms. Renate's (aka Yumi) birthday and there is a big surprise for her over on the Yumi & Fumi Handmade blog.  Yep the team twisted my arm to keep me from saying anything and yes they wheedled and pleaded for me to give them some time to take over the blog ONE. LAST. TIME.  How could I say no?!  I'm so totally kidding, they asked and of course I said yes!  It's for a totally good reason.  All the fun starts HERE.

This card was inspired by some of the recent pictures she's been sharing on her FB page.  If you don't know, she loves all sorts of KAWAII things and one of them happens to be My Little Pony.  So I went searching on the internet for this kawaii Rainbow Dash colored image.  Yay! I'm half way done with my card!  I thought pairing him up with Yumicorn was perfect!  Colored her up to try to match him, all the way down to the rainbow colored tuft of hair.  I added some clouds in the background to give the card more depth.   The sentiment was computer generated and I fussy cut it in to the shape of a cloud.   Wanted to do something fun on the inside and found another perfect Rainbow Dash image, all I did was add another sentiment...

Perfect right?!  I hope she likes it.

Rena, I hope you have a beautiful day full of love, laughs, smiles and sunshine.  Happy Happy Birthday girlfren!! Enjoy your special surprises today! Love ya lots!!

Now head on over to the Yumi & Fumi blog to see what the two teams had up their sleeve and leave them some love, they schemed, I mean worked really hard to keep this a SECRET.  hahaha!  Then head on over to Renate's blog to wish her a happy birthday.  If you're her friend on FB then definitely leave a message there.

Have a fantastic day and if you're also celebrating... Happy Birthday!  You're in really good company. :)
