A VERY SPECIAL BIRTHDAY WISH!!

Happy Thursday all!! Today I have a very special card to share that is for a very special person! Today is Joy Kennedy's birthday and I made this card especially for her!!! Joy is one of the owner's of the fabulous online store Eclectic Paperie (EP for those of us who know and love this wonderful place!) She is also one of the owner's of the new stamp line called Our Staff Lounge; her and Cami launched this fabulous line about six months ago, and they have the cutest stamps (I should know, I own most of them, lol!) So, the gals came up with an idea to have an EP exclusive set, and out of this idea, Kona was born and has already become Joy's favorite!! So, today I made a birthday card especially for her using one of the adorable Kona images in the new set!! I will tell you, this is one of the CUTEST stamp sets I have ever seen....I am totally in love with it, and can see why it is Joy's favorite!! I mean, just look at him, lol!! That little crab totally cracks me up!! The sentiment is one I made up and printed on my computer so it does not come with the set but everything else does including the sand. This set will be available at EP starting tomorrow and will only be available for a limited time so make sure you get on over there and get your own set before it is GONE!!! Want to see some more sneak peeks of Kona? Head on over to Cami's blog and you will begin a fabulous tour of eye candy!!! Joy, I want to wish you a HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIRL!!!!!! I hope your day is FABULOUS!!!!! Now, I am off to run some errands....I have some exciting news to share tomorrow so I hope you come back and visit - and I promise I will catch up on my blogging, I have just been swamped...you will understand why tomorrow *wink* Thanks for stopping by!
