Happy Birthday, Laura!

Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday, dearest Laura!
Happy birthday to you!

And many, many more...

For those of you that don't know, Laura Weed's birthday is today!  Laura wears several hats at Stampendous but I think her favorite is Design Team Wrangler!  She keeps us busy creating projects to share with you guys and gals.  She also manages to hook us up with blog collaborations from some of the best companies in the industry.  She is amazing and I don't know how she manages to do all she does on a daily basis while still making our team feel loved and nurtured by her and all of Stampendous.  She is the glue that holds our glitter!  Laura, I love you and I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

Here's a card I created for Laura using Cling Jumbo Dahlia and Cling Jumbo Butterfly Trio.  My papers are Bazzill, Neenah and Bo Bunny.  Both images were colored with Copics, however, I did stamp the flower with Memento Desert Sand to minimize visual lines.  That gorgeous ribbon is from May Arts.  I also used a little copper wire for the butterfly's antenna.  Both images were pop-dotted on.



So, Laura, I hope you like your special card!  More than anything, I hope you enjoy your special day and  have a wonderful year ahead.  Here's the complete hop list for Laura's Birthday Hop:

Lea Kimmel (Me!)
Melinda Gleissner

I would like to thank Melinda Gleissner, my fellow Design Team member, for organizing this hop for Laura.  Melinda, you're awesome!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you again tomorrow with a special project!

Hugs,
Lea
