SURPRISE BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP!!!

Happy TGIF!

I'm happy to tell you that I'm feeling much, much better! I'm also back working...I wish I could have had the whole entire week off :) !!! But someone has to bring home the bacon...LOL!!!

Anyway, today it's not about me....we have a fun, fun, fun surprise *Birthday Blog Hop* going on.....!!!

Let’s light the candles and strike up the music, the owner of Flourishes – Jan Marie Caruso – is celebrating a birthday and we’re helping her by getting the party started! Why not leave Jan Marie some love on her blog HERE and while you are there, start to hop on through the Flourishes team members who are honoring her special day! Happy Birthday Jan Marie!

Here is my card for Jan Marie........



I just received this beautiful quote from the Life Lines Set and thought it would be perfect for Jan Marie's special day. The DP is from the SU Blushing Bride Pattern Print Collection. I added a punched out MS Flower Border, some Pearls , a Prima Flower and some Satin Ribbon. The embossing was created with the SU Framed Tulips Folder....voila! Hope you like your card Jan Marie :) ?!? Big birthday hugs to you and I hope you have a fabulous day!!!
