happy birthday shirley-bee!


Surely you know Shirley. Of Shirley-bee's Stamping Stuff. Known for her splodging, spritzing and squidging. And amazing watercoloring. Of the Mixed Media Card Challenge, STAMPlorations, Seize the Birthday and Take It, Make It design team fame. (Busy gal, eh?) And most recently, surely you've heard, stamp designer. Have you seen Shirley's new line of stamps? It's called The Bee's Knees. Of course.

Well today I'm having a party. It's Ms. Bee's Knees' birthday and some blogland buddies and I are taking this opportunity to wish her all the best for a great celebration today and health, happiness and success in the coming year.

What better way to show Shirley how much I admire her work, than by CASEing it? I picked this card that she created with one of her own stamps. Isn't that bloom lovely?




I stamped and watercolored and splattered. And heat embossed some PTI stacked die cut sentiments with two layers of sparkly embossing powder. It's a party, after all!

There's a linky tool below for any of you who would like to join the party. Make a card for Shirley and link it up by Sunday, November 9th.

It's sure a pleasure DTing with you, Shirley. Have an extraordinary birthday! Considering your kids got you your own domain for Mother's Day, I wonder what they've got cookin' for your birthday?!?!

Cheers to you, birthday girl!
