A Blog Hop for Jeanne

Good evening - three posts in one day, I think that is a personal record!

I am popping in this evening to take part in a blog hop for Jeanne Jachna, one of my most favorite paper crafting peeps. If you happen to be following along with the hop, you should have arrived here from Renee's blog (I love her, too!! ;)

Jeanne is celebrating a birthday later this month, and I'm joining in to wish her a wonderful day. I remember the first card that I saw Jeanne make (it was this one) and I was floored. Ever since then, she has continued to amaze and inspire with her incredible use of die cuts and embellishments. I tell ya, that girl knows how to pull elements together. Each of her creations is a work of art, and I am so grateful for the opportunity I have had to get to know her better.

I made a little birthday card for her, I couldn't resist the chance to use Yonder Star again, but I fear it isn't a very girly birthday card.

I thought I'd go for some Novembery colors, rich fall leafy colors for this one. I combined both the solid and outline shapes for this, and can't wait to give this a try with light blue and silver. Before adding my sentiment, I stamped the Yonder Star Background to add some texture.

My dear Jeanne, I wish you the most wonderful birthday (and will say so again once it gets closer!) and am so glad you're my friend. Now hop along to see what Tracey has created.
