Birthday Blog Hop

Hi there, friends!

It is an honorary holiday here at WMS as it is our dear Claire's birthday! I have never met a kinder, sweeter, more encouraging person than Claire and I am so glad to call her my friend! Won't you join the DT for a little birthday waltz?

Happy Birthday, chickie - I think you're the best!


I was inspired by an article I saw in Country Living Magazine about decorating with white. I really liked the different shades of white together and wanted to try bringing these neutrals all together on a card. I particularly liked this image:

My card uses the rose images from Roses in Bloom and a bit of Musical Backgrounds on the bottom.

Claire, I hope you have a fantastic birthday!

I am your last stop, so head over to the Waltzingmouse Blog to say a little hello to Claire. I am sure she will be thrilled!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Anya
