Welcome to Merry Monday! This week, we have no Christmas cards for you. Say what?
We're throwing a surprise birthday blog hop for our fellow design team member, LeAnne Pugliese of Wee Inklings fame! LeAnne is celebrating a milestone birthday and we want to make her birthday extra special.
Hopefully you've come here from the blog of my talented team-mate, Debbie Henderson. Wasn't her card fabulous? And here is my card to honor LeAnne:
I tried to channel LeAnne while I was making this card! I went for a vintage image, colored with Copics. I also used some vintage-looking papers and a card to celebrate LeAnne wouldn't be complete without a shabby bow, now, would it? Here's a close-up shot.
I haven't had much practice at coloring people, so don't look too closely :)
Here are the copics I used, if you're interested.
So what next? Well, follow the blog hop around to see everyone's fabulous cards. The next stop is the very clever Sue Joyce. Once you've been around the blog hop, go make a birthday card for LeAnne and link it up to Merry Monday. We'll be choosing a winner and honorable mentions like any other challenge, so have a go!
I used a recent Verve sketch for this card.
Last but definitely not least, I hope you have a wonderful birthday, Leanne!
