I is for Indigo...



Hello, Happy Tuesday!
This card is going out to my pal and "boss" Michele Gross, whose birthday is today!



The CASUAL FRIDAYS STAMPS Ink Squad is throwing her a colorful Birthday Blog Hop where each letter of the word "birthday" stands for a color.
I am second on the hop so I chose INDIGO as my color:)

Here is the blog hop schedule:
Karen B
                       Dana I (You are here)
Laurie R
Lynn T
Michelle H
Piali D
Virginia A
Kelly  Y

Michele is the owner, creator, and designer of Casual Fridays Stamps. She also runs the Casual Friday challenge blog, and coordinates two design teams, all while maintaining her home and family in her spare time! She is a true Superwoman
Even though I have worked with her since we were on the Denami design team together in 2011, it's only been in the past two years that I've gotten to know her and feel the benefits of her amazing personality!
She's funny, smart, talented, creative, kind, and an excellent manager!
In short, she's the perfect boss:)

I hope you'll join me in wishing her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Thanks for stopping by,
XOXO

Absolutely positively seriously stunning!!! I adore how you fussy cut those funky diamonds, and made them into flowers! Eeek!! Thank you soooooo much for this special suprise this morning :)

Kelly Griglione said...

Ummm, this is amazingly stunning, Dana! The colors are delish. Love your double baker's twine bow. I don't use baker's twine bows too often because they look too skinny ... I guess this is the trick!

I just bought that stamp but haven't used it yet. Now I have another idea for how to incorporate it into my greeting cards. Love it.
Happy birthday Michele.
