It's TANYA's birthday!

We're celebrating our fabulous friend TANYA today cuz it's her *ahem* 28th birthday and that is worth a party, don't ya think? ;) So... we're having a blog hop party and it doesn't really matter where you started, you're gonna get to see some lovely cards and of course you'll get a feel for how much we love our girl Tanya! I've got lots of pics for ya today, so we'll get started...

Here's the card I made for Tanya, using a gorgeous new Stamping Bella image, "Lulu loves poppies" together with yummy poppy paper by Graphic 45 (Magic of Oz), Glass Glitter, and a bunch of goodies our man Tim Holtz created just for Tanya & I... because I'm sure he loves us as much as we love him, Tanya... and you just go right ahead telling yourself that this card is from me AND Tim ;)
(the Tim Holtz goodies are: kraft resist cardstock, Distress Stain, Film Strip Ribbon, Muse Token, Memo Pins, Distres Stickles... I think that covers it. Gotta love Tim!)

Here's the inside of the card- I used an old fave birthday stamp from Magenta.
and here's a couple close ups for ya:
I made a couple of the poppies 3D.
Mom (Julie) created this sweet card for Tanya, too! She made this flower using... wait for it... coffee filters! Stamped em with a Hero Arts background stamp, cut with Tim Holtz die & sprayed with Perfect Pearl Mist. Does that background look familiar? Yep, more of that yummy lace doilie from Basic Grey's Out of Print collection!
and we've still got one more fab card for ya... this one by Marianne! She created an adorable chocolate shop scene using new images from Art Impressions:
Aren't those flower boxes great? Here's the inside of the card... so you can see what they were all so intently looking at :)

Are you ready for some more eye candy? I'm sure you will not be disappointed if you hop on over to visit Eulanda's blog! She's always got pretty papers there :)

Tara your card turned our fabulous, I love all the Tim embellishments. The 3d poppies are a great touch. Julie your card idea is great, the touch with the coffee filter flowers is wonderful, but I like Cheri would have to make sure I had lots of filters on hand to ensure I had coffee in the morning.
