PNW Birthday Buddies - Birthday Blog Hop - Happy Birthday Kimberly!


I'm happily a part of a group of friends that are all from the Pacific Northwest that celebrate each other birthdays!  Today we're celebrating the lovely Kimberly's Birthday!  I'm the start of the Happy Birthday Hop!  


Kimberly is FULL of talent and kindness.  It doesn't get much better than that, does it?!  She is our go-to Make 'n Take woman for our crafty group.  She recently taught her first class at Impress and she rocked her FULL class.

I have a BUNCH of NBUS (acronym by Darnell!) so since I seem to be on a tropical birthday kick (see Laura's card HERE), I thought I'd keep up the theme.

We recently went to Impress for their 30th Anniversary Sale.  Yay for 30 years, can you believe that?!  I'm pretty sure that for a brick & mortar shops that is absolutely awesome.  So many of the cute shops have closed down over the years.  Anywho's I picked up a bunch of fun tropical stamps:


Tropical makes me happy and I certainly hope it makes Kimberly happy.  I tried to coordinate the envelope liner with a panel from the Pink Paislee Take me Away paper pad.

Kimberly, I hope you have the most awesome Birthday Weekend!


Here's the hop listing for today!  Remember to stop at Kimberly's place to post Birthday Wishes!

PNW Birthday Buddies - Birthday Blog Hop - Happy Birthday Laura!



I'm happily a part of a group of friends that are all from the Pacific Northwest that celebrate each other birthdays!  Today we're celebrating the lovely Laura Norris:  You should have arrived here from the awesome Toni's blog!  If not, start at the beginning which is the Birthday Hostess with the Mostess, Tonya!


I decided to do a tropical theme birthday card for Laura.  She was just recently in Hawaii and who doesn't love Hawaii?


I combined the Essentials by Ellen - Stay Golden with My Favorite Things - Polynesian Paradise.  I love that sentiment from the Stay Golden set.  Do you spy her Golden Pineapple crown?  It's been stamped in Delicata Gold.

Here's the interior, a sentiment from the Polynesian Paradise set:


So Laura and I are weekly walking buddies!  That sentiment is perfect-o!

Laura, I hope you're enjoying the most fabulous Birthday Weekend.  You are the sweetest friend!

My card was inspired by the Ellen Hutson LLC Pin-Sights Challenge:


I was inspired by the colors and the block with the pink + yellow reminded me of tropical goodness!

Next up is the lovely Lisa Lara!
