So I was more than a little Star Struck and totally a blubbering idiot. But it was TIM HOLTZ people *insert Squeal here*. I have a Ranger Class tomorrow so hopefully I'm over my dorkness and I'm able to concentrate on my projects.

Birthday Blog Hop!!!

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you.

Happy Birthday Dear Tracy,

Happy Birthday to you!!!!!

If you are just starting with me, this post is part of a Birthday Blog Hop for Tracy Jackson of Stamping Seasons. I have the extreme honor of being part of her (and Lou's) design team over at Southern Girls Challenge Blog. Tracy is so talented and such a wonderful person that a Birthday Hop is definitely in order. Make sure you scroll to the bottom of this post to enter for a chance to win some Candy Candy I have up for grabs, before you continue on with the hop!

Ok, so what better image for a birthday card than a little girl in her birthday suit. Don't ya just love her little bum. I absolutely love this Mo Manning image. It has definitely got to be my new favorite (I know, I know, I say that at least once a month). I gave feather blending another go on this card and I have to say, I'm much happier with the result. I hope you like it Tracy!

So once you have hopped to the last blog, make sure you stop by Tracy's Blog and give her some Birthday Love. Tell her that Michelle Singer sent you so that she gets the hint about this surprise Birthday Blog Hop.

So have you entered your name below for my Blog Candy? You have, Ok, then let's get our "Hop On" and head on over to the next stop in this birthday hop. This would be the blog of my fellow Southern Girls teamie, the lovely and Uber talented Alicia from Time to Create. If you have time, leave her some love. :)

Challenges I'm putting this card in:
Crafty Purple Frog - Fly away with us
Paper Crafting Journey - Things with Wings
Magical Mondays - Spring Colors
The Crafty Pad - Use a ribbon

Hair Inspired Card!!!

This card was totally inspired by my new hairdo although the way it looked in my head and the way it turned out on paper are two totally different things. I would have played with it a little more but this card is for the Southern Girls Flower Challenge and I ran out of time. The left hand side of this card is driving me nuts. lol

The image used on this card is a Digi from The Paper Shelter who is one of the sponsors over at Southern Girls. I'm not used to using such bright colors but I think I'm feeling as washed out as all the Vintage colors that are popular now and I'm cravin' color. I paper pieced the flower to add a little dimension to the card. I might still add one more layer for the center of the flower.
Here is a picture of my hair in case you were wondering how on earth my hair could inspire this card. I love funky colored hair and my stylist is awesome.

Copics Used:
Flower: B02, B00, RV13, RV10, Y38, Y35, YG09, YG07, YG06
Bugs: B02, B00, RV13, RV10, C5, E11, E13, E09, E07, R27
