Happy Birthday Julee

 

Today is a very special day.  We are celebrating JULEE TILMAN'S BIRTHDAY.   She is the owner and designer of Verve Stamps and we wanted to surprise her with her very own Birthday Blog Hop!  If you've come here from Lynda Benden's blog you are right on track.  If not, then you can go to the Verve Blog and start from there. 

Happy Surprise Birthday Blog Hop Julee!!!!  I'd sing you Happy Birthday but you would head for the hills if I did, so I'll refrain!  Feel free to sing it to yourself or have Mark sing it to you on my behalf  LOL, and please make sure Mark gives you a huge birthday (((hug))) from me, okay?!!!

It is such an honour be be a part of this birthday celebration for you :)  It's no secret how much I love Verve!! Your sentiments are amazing and I just love the Plain Jane scripture verses!  In honour of your birthday, I just had to use a Mojo Monday sketch for your card.  I was hoping to go with brown and aqua, your signature colours (I actually think of you any time I see this colour combo!), but have no aqua paper or ink (insert pouty face).  So...you get green (my favorite colour) and brown instead, as well as a piece of highly treasured and hoarded DP (yup, you're that special!).  Fluttering By was also a must have on this card because it was one the very first Verve sets I bought, and it also happens to be one of my all time favorite sets.  Sorry about the ribbon flower in the lower right hand corner....I had to surrender after a very lengthy battle with it....just imagine it as a lovely flower instead of what looks like gathered ribbon gone bad LOL!




Have a fabulous day, and know you are loved.  On to Teresa's blog you go..
