Happy Birthday Suzanne!!!

H & B Suzanne 2013
Ok, Ok, Ok…. I’m so in trouble! I was to have this posted at 12:00am so it would be ready for this morning and for some reason I thought I had another day. I’m so sorry to all my friends on the design team at Color Me Creative, but I know Suanne will forgive (PLEASE).. ha ha! It is my dear friend Suzanne’s Birthday and every year we get together and do a theme and a blog hop in honor of Suzanne just because she is such a dear friend and our fearless leader at Color Me Creative.

So this year I picked Besties image she is called Miss May. Cut out the image with spellbinder lacy square die. The sentiment was punched out with stampin out their word label.  Colored the wings with gelly roll pens colors sky star and silver star.

Add some pearl pen color turquoise. Ribbon is from Michaels. Stampin up paper called Beau Chateau. Add an gem Emerald to her hand May’s birthday stone and May’s flower is Lily of the Vally, just thought you might want to know.

We have just celebrated Suzanne’s 3 year of creating Color Me Creative classroom. I have to tell you I have been with her every step of the way. She has been my inspirations. When I first met Suzanne, I had some (50) or more copic markers all kinds of colors, numbers and letters. I had no idea what they all meant, but I would try and color with my pen and I was so unhappy with my coloring and I did not know why. I’m not a person to give up. When Suzanne started talking about classes she has my full attention and I could not wait for them to start. I did learn from Suzanne what the letters mean, numbers and how to buy the colors, boy was I surprised and I understood why I could not get anything to look good. Thought out these years we live miles apart but we have several opportunity to get together and if you read her blog she is real as crazy as she sounds but I have to say everyone has a blast and she is one of the most caring person I have ever meant. I’m so glad you are my friend. Here is too so many year to come! Happy Birthday!♥
So if you would like to see what the other girls have created you can follow the links.
Now hop along with us to enjoy more of the Design Team's creations for Suzanne.

You have certainly nailed the copic markers Pat! I am always amazed at the life you bring to each image and beyond that, you add so much more detail than I would have ever thought to add. I think the flowers in her hair and the shimmer of the gem is just amazing!!! This a top notch birthday card.
HUGS :D
