Happy, Happy Birthday!!

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday, dear Lori,
Happy birthday to you!!!
... and many more...

That's right! It's a birthday party blog hop today for Lori, the owner of Clear Dollar Stamps!! We gals on the design team wanted to tell Lori just how much we appreciate her, so we've set up a birthday party blog hop on the sly. :-) I'll link all of us that are participating at the end of the post, or you can start at the beginning here.

I really feel blessed to work with Lori and the entire Clear Dollar team. What a special group of gals they are! I love the philosophy that Lori has, making this wonderful craft of ours affordable by offering high quality products at really low prices, and always seeking to please the Lord in all that she does. The new things that she comes out with are always aimed to give us *more* for our crafting dollars... like the wonderful stamps, the Clearly Coordinating Collection, the card kits and ministry card kits, and the new paper kit. And... to top it off... Lori is down to earth and sweet as well. I am SO blessed to work with her!!!


For Lori's birthday card, I used a few of my FAVORITE Clear Dollar sets that I don't get to play with too often, since they are past Stamps of the Month "Moose" and "Silhouette Wishes". The moose has been put into digital format now, though, so he is still available. :-) After coloring the moose, I cut my image out with an oval nesties and then I stamped the little flowers with versamark ink and used pastels to color them. All of the papers are from the *wonderful* Clearly Coordinating Collection, and the frame and ribbon are from my stash.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LORI!!!! Have a blessed day!!!!

And for the rest of you... don't forget to drop by the other blogs and leave some love and birthday wishes!!
