For the Birthday Girl!

So today is Katie's 30th birthday!!! Oh my, where did the time go?? (This means that this is the year I will be twice as old as Katie!) Oh yes, I remember when she was racing around with her blond pigtails flying like it was yesterday.

You should have arrived here right from the Paper Makeup Stamps blog and if you didn't, be sure to check it out and get the "scoop" on Katie and the list of everyone in the hop.

I am so happy that Tangii asked me to join the birthday blog hop today to celebrate Katie's birthday. I haven't sent Katie her card yet so she'll at least see it on her birthday! Katie truly loves doing what she does....being a wife, a momma, a make-up artist, a paper crafter, and more.
I think the sentiment on my card is a really fitting one for her. She actually made me a vinyl cutout of this for my office wall.
It's been a fun journey to watch Katie's goals change as she's moved through life. Her mind and heart were open and she's found and followed her passion as life has unfolded for her. We are so very, very proud of her. Happy Birthday Katie!! Now hop on to Lisa Kind's blog for more birthday fun.

Card details:
Bazzill cardstock - Color: Piglet (Katie will appreciate that!)
DP - Basic Grey's Sweet Threads paper pad
Stamps - A PMS sentiment and "happy birthday" from the Birthday Cheer set
Inks - Versafine black and Versa Color in Green Tea to smudge the edges of the sentiment

Buttons - from my button collection
