Happy Birthday Lesley!

Monday, August 8, 2011

Today is my blogging buddy Lesley's birthday so to celebrate, Nance has organized a blog hop so that we can all send her our best wishes!  Keep reading to find all the stops on our blog tour!

How adorable!  I wish I could see her face when she realizes what we've done!  I made a card that I've got to admit I fussed over it for quite a while before I settled on the finished product.  Ooh, the pressure!!

Lesley befriended me many months ago when she asked me to be a guest designer on her challenge blog The Paper Players.  She never fails to give an encouraging word and is a source of great inspiration for me.  I'm so glad that I "know" her even though we've never met, we live 3,000 miles apart and in different countries!  Luckily, in this electronic age that means nothing! 

I hope that you'll pop on over to Lesley's blog, Always Playing With Paper, and send her some birthday wishes!

Here are the other very talented participants in our blog hop today (with a big shout-out to Nance for putting this whole thing together)!  Be sure and check out their amazing creations!

Good morning Jen! You SHOULD have seen my face when I realized what you had all done. I had tears in my eyes and a big ol' lump in my throat! Thank you so much for your kind words and for the lovely card! I am inspired by YOU and you are right, what's 3000 miles in this electronic age! Thank you for making my day so special!
