Birthday Surprise!!!

Good morning!  I have a special post today for a special birthday surprise!  It's Angelica's birthday, and the members of the Peachy Keen Design Team and the Let's Face It Friday Design Team are all sharing cards we've created in celebration of Angelica's big day!
Here's my card, created with the Follow Your Heart stamp set designed by non other than the birthday girl herself, and it's part of her amazing Market Street Stamps line.  I chose this set, because whenever I correspond with Angelica, I always find myself calling her sweetie.  Don't ask me why, and she may hate it, I don't know.  I guess she's about the same age as my own kids, and I do think she's just about as sweet as they come.   She IS a sweetie!!

I paper pieced the largest of the birds in this stamp set with coordinating paper from the wonderful Crazy Love collection by Bo Bunny.  A little Copic work for shading, and some good old fashioned stamping for the branch and leaves, and VOILA!  A birthday card for our sweet Angelica!!  She does so much for all of us on the design teams, and it's such an honor to be among those that get to celebrate with her today.  I already sent Angelica a vintage style card that I thought she might like, but this one will be off in the mail to her soon, as well.  Be sure to stop by the blogs of all of our PKS designers to see what they've created for Angelica!
Here's a list for you to follow:
Kathy
Happy birthday to you, sweetie!  I love ya bunches, and am grateful for and appreciate everything you do!  I hope you have a sweet and special day!
