Kona for Joy

May 28th, 2009

Please join me in wishing a Happy Happy Happy Birthday to my sweet friend Joy!  Joy is one of the most generous, kind-hearted, genuine people I have ever known and I am blessed to call her friend!


My birthday card for Joy is also a sneak peek of a new OCL stamp set that will be available exclusively through eclectic Paperie starting tomorrow (ETA: It’s up today!!) – it’s called Kona and I’m told it’s a big favorite of Joy’s.  I loved the little flower with the word “Dude!”…seemed to make it ok to say “Dude!” to a girl.  LOL!



I colored in our cool turtle friend with copic markers (also from eP).  I chose all the colors based on the patterned paper I planned to use.  That always makes coloring an image so much easier for me – to know it will coordinate with something when I’m done with it.  The dotted wave border punch by EK Success just seemed like a natural here.  Be sure to check out my next post a little later today for more details on supplies used on this card


I also decorated the inside of the card.  kona-for-joy-09-inside-custom.jpg It was fun to put this computer generated sentiment on a ribbon slide (cut with a Spellbinders die.)


Thanks Cami for asking me to participate in this fun virtual birthday party for our friend Joy.  You can hop over to Cami’s blog to get links to more Kona sneak peeks and more birthday wishes.


I’ll be back at 8:00 am with another post.  Please be sure to check back.  In the meantime – hop over to Joy’s blog and show her some birthday love!
