Surprise Birthday Blog Hop!

Surprise!  Today we are celebrating Leanne Poe's birthday by throwing a fun birthday blog hop party!  We thought we'd gather a few of her friends and design team members to celebrate her special day.  If you came here from Kathy's blog you are in the right place.  If you didn’t you may want to start at the beginning at Yumi & Fumi's Handmade Crafts blog. 

I "met" Leanne (aka Lilo, aka Fumi) through blogging several years ago. She is one super talented lady and I'm so happy for her and Renate for realizing their dream of having their own stamp line! Woohoo! Congrats again girl!

On to my card (actually, it's Leanne's card) - I used YUMI PEACE SIGN which I was lucky enough to win from Y&F's release blog hop! She is so cute and I just love that big smile on her face! I colored her with my Copics, and used the Bo Bunny Serenity collection. The cardstock is from SU and I used the Martha Stewart deep edge cherry blossom punch for the side border. The sentiment is from an old set of clear stamps (one of my first) and I punched it out with the small scallop oval SU punch. The red mini cherry blossoms are from my gf Jenny (I believe she got them from Island Scrapbooking), along with the Happy Birthday sentiment inside the card. I almost always forget to decorate the inside of my cards, but this time I remembered! 

So that's my card for Leanne! I hope you like it girl! At this time, I would like to thank Eva for including me in this very special hop. Thanks so much Eva! I really appreciated your thoughtfulness! 

Next up is Linda T. and be sure to end the hop at Leanne's personal blog and wish her a Happy Birthday!!! Thanks for hopping with us today and I hope Leanne is super surprised!!! Until next time, take care.
