Happy Belated Birthday, Marybeth!

Joyce contacted me to ask if I would like to participate in a belated Birthday Blog Hop for our sweet blogging friend Marybeth, and obviously I said, “Of course!”  Marybeth is such a sweet, sweet lady, and I couldn’t pass up the chance to create my first card in over a month to help celebrate her life!

Marybeth, I hope your birthday was a great day, and I hope the next year will be filled with much happiness and joy and everything good in your life!  Thank you so much for all the lovely and kind comments you leave on my blog and for your sweet friendship.  You’re a wonderful person with a beautiful spirit, and I’m so happy that I’ve had the opportunity to get to know you through our blogs.  Hugs and blessings to you, my friend!


This image is from Annabelle Stamps, colored with Copic markers and spritzed with sparkle shimmer mist.  I did use the Freshly Made Sketches #100 challenge to assist me, and I’ll post this over at Seize the Birthday, too.
