Wisdom, Peace & Cheer


Everyday I'm thankful for the friendships I've made through crafting.

Today Erin and I are celebrating Jen's Birthday with a Carbon Copied Post! We are both featuring Retro Foundations by The Craft's Meow and were inspired by the inspiration picture at Jay Gee's Nook. I gravitated towards the graphic packaging in the top left corner so I stamped a few rows of one of the patterns in Retro Foundations, mounted that on top of two strips of Gold May Arts Satin Ribbon and then die cute a large star. I backed the star with a larger black star and then adhered the panel to a kraft card base and completed it all with birthday greeting (from Retro Foundations and Typically Teen).






Jen is one of the most sweetest, most talented ladies I've had the pleasure to get to know. The things she does with ribbon is absolutely phenomenal, and her support and guidance is second to none. Happy Birthday Jen! I hope your day is amazing and just what you hoped for. If you haven't checked out Jen's blog yet, please take a few minutes to do so and wish her a happy birthday while you are there! And please also stop by Erin's blog too (who I would say the same things about!) as she has her version of the challenge up with birthday wishes for Jen too!
