Happy Birthday, Joyce! & Paper Dolls Challenge #47, & Freshly Made Sketches #33

I am so happy to be a part of a birthday blog hop for a very special crafty friend, Joyce! I am lucky to be in two groups with Joyce, The Paper Dolls & The 12 Kits of Christmas :) Joyce goes out of her way to comment on everything I make and is truly sweet. She has arranged several birthday blog hops for other members of our groups, so I'm thrilled that Kim has arranged one for Joyce and that I am a part of it! So without further ado, Happy Birthday, Joyce!


I used this sketch to create my card:


I'm also entering this card in our monthly Paper Dolls challenge which was to use fruit and a sketch. You can head on over to the blog here to find out more about it.


The patterned paper is PTI's Frutti Tutti. The "happy" die is from PTI's wonderful words. The birthday sentiment is also from PTI.


The strawberry picking girl is from MFT. The set is called "Who's that Harvesting Girl?" The curly label punch is from SU.


The twine is from the Twinery and the cardstock is PTI.


Joyce, I am truly happy to know you! You are a beautiful and wonderful person both inside and out and you are incredibly talented and creative! I hope your birthday this year is one of your best, and hope you get lots of crafty goodies as presents! Now head on over for the rest of your blog hop!
