For Virginia!!!

Virginia is one of our Flickr buddies, you can view her Photostream HERE and visit her blog, VIRGINIALU.

She is quite the talented lady, recently being published (way to go Virginia!), quite talented in the kitchen as you'll be able to tell if you peruse the recipes she shares on her blog, and she is a very crafty crafter!

I've never met Virginia in person, but in cyber space, oh yes!  I've even been fortunate enough to receive a card made by her very early on in my own crafty life!

What I love about Virginia other than her beautifully clean, crisp and often times fun cards, is that she is a very loving person!  How do I know this? Well, just read her blog posts, the way she talks about her children, the way she laughs with her husband Dr.John!  Sometimes, just that, tells you so much about a person!  She seems to have all her priorities right in her life, and her life seems to be filled with laughter and loaded with proud,  and joyful moments!

Why is this post dedicated to Virginia?  Well, she is turning the big 50, actually on the same day as my daughter's birthda!  So of course it's a special day!  But she is having a virtual birthday party, you can see all the details HERE.  And part of the party fun is that if you want, you can make her a card for the special occasion and post it on your blog, and linking it back to hers.

So Virginia, my mojo has been in a bit of a slump, I am convinced that someone stole it.  But last night I sat down and thought of your upcoming birthday celebrations, your clean vivid style and it spurred me on to make you a card!

Paper: cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Tombow markers; Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: Hero Arts (Bold Blooms CG362; CL139)
Other: Gems (MME); Wonky Rectangle Spellbinders die

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!  And I know that you will be celebrating in a BIG WAY and I cannot wait to see some of the pictures I just know you will share!

Happy Birthday Virginia!
