Happy Birthday, Wendy Bond!

Hi there! Happy Thursday! Today I'm participating in a hop to celebrate the birthday of the fabulous Wendy Bond! Wendy is super-sweet and mega-talented! I'm honored to be one of the stamping friends who are wishing her a Happy Birthday today! If you haven't seen all the birthday wishes so far, you can start at the beginning with Karen Motz! :)


I started with this sentiment from JustRite's Birthday Cardmaking Kit. It's SO true, isn't it? ;) The paper is from the Fly a Kite 8x8 pad by October Afternoon. I inked all the edges with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Inks, then I lightly distressed them with my fingernail. I used Classic Circle and Blossom Nestabilities for the sentiment and matting, and I placed a Prima pearl swirl behind them. The sheer ribbon is topped with Ivory Burlap String and another pearl.

The next well-wisher on the hop is Nancy McKinney! Hurry over to see what she has created for Wendy!

Happy Birthday, Wendy!  You're not older, just better! May your year be filled with blessings!  :)

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by! Have a great day!

Christina
