Good Morning Everyone!
Today is a very special day! Its the birthday of a most wonderful person: Nancy McKinney! Nancy is the amazingly talented illustrator of the Whimsical Wishes line of Taylored Expressions!!! Her designs are gorgeous, her talent is amazing and more than anything - she is one of the sweetest people ever (and she has the cutest dimples!!!) And today, the awesome Karen Motz has organized a birthday blog hop for Nancy - so if you are coming over here from the lovely and talented Karen Giron's Blog - then you are right on track (if not you can start at the beginning at Karen Motz's Blog)
There are so many wonderful birthday stamp sets from Taylored Expressions that Nancy has designed so it was so hard to pick one - but I had to go with the fun and whimsical stamp set called "Make a Wish" with the Make A WIsh Project Pantry papers from Taylored Expressions. It was so much fun to create this card with dearest Nancy in mind :) I wanted it to be festive - so I stamped the pennant stamp in this set in Versamark, and then inked it with some Bamboo leaves ink from Memento and added some clear EP to it so that it had a nice glaze to it - I also did the same thing for the orange pennant and then cut out the pennants. I finished it by adding some dimensionals to the green row and then adding some bling in between the pennants.
Stamps: Make A Wish from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa and Tuxedo Black, Tangelo and Bamboo leaves and copics
Accessories: Spellbinders (Nestabilities), Adirondack liquid pearls , ribbon from stash, Heart punch from MS, bling from stash and corner chomper
I can't wait to send this card off in the mail to dearest Nancy - wishing you the very best birthday ever! Wishing you and your family lots of laughter and joy every single day and wishing you continued success in everything that you do!!! (And another wish, is that I can't wait to see you soon again!!! )
A lot of the members of Taylored Expressions Baker's Dozen DT were so lucky that we got to meet dearest Nancy at CHA in July in Chicago! And I can't wait to hang out with you soon again!!! Here is a picture I adore of Nancy and myself at CHA in front of Taylor's booth :))) I love this picture!!!
Sending you a ton of wishes for an amazingly happy and wonderful birthday and year dear Nancy!!!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!
