Happy Birthday Ardyth!



Hello there! Guess what...the fabulous Darnell was oh so sweet and organized a birthday party for the amazing Ardyth!  If you don't know Ardyth, she is an absolute gem of a blogging friend with an amazing eye for color and extreme creativity. She has an eye for graphics that never ceases to amaze me!  She has a love for CAS cards, a passion for her church, family and friends and it simply shines through in her blog each and every day.  So, when Darnell asked me to participate in a blog hop to honor Ardyth's birthday I was a very quick yes. Happy birthday Ardyth!  I hope you have an amazing day!  My card above is a nod to Ardyth's eye for color, graphic style and square card making!  Doesn't quite do her justice!



I also though it would be fun to share a challenge card for two challenges:  Festive Friday (a nod to Ardyth being on the design team) and Fusion Challenge.  I had a lot of fun using my new Lil Inker snowflake die for this card!

Thank you so much for joining in Lynn - I so appreciate it! And I love your FFriday card - it's rich with the traditional colours, but still light and airy! Thanks so much for playing along!

  18. They're both awesome - I think your birthday card for Ardyth is great!! I love how you used the sketch from fusion on your FF card - that one would totally elude me, but the way you used your snowflake was perfect. Thanks for playing with us again this week!!
