Birthday Blog Hop for Kimberly

Today is a special day for a special someone!  Kimberly Wiener of wienerhoneymooners is having a birthday today and we are having a little blog hop to help her celebrate.  A bunch of us stampers get together in real life on a regular basis and decided it would be fun to send some birthday wishes Kimberly's way!
Happy Birthday Graphic

I first met Kimberly at a live stamping class at Impress taught by Julie Ebersole.  I know how much Kimberly loves her, so I thought it was fitting to use Julie's stamps in making Kimberly's card for today. 

I used the Wish Big stamp set and stamped the hippo, party hat and balloon in Memento black ink.  Then I colored the images with my copic markers and mounted it on some Lawn Fawn paper.  I added a little wink of stella to the party hat and the balloon for a fun touch. 

I decided to keep the card CAS because of Kimberly's DT gig over at CASology!  When I entered my first challenge over at CASology, it was Kimberly who left a comment.  She was so supportive and encouraging!  It really made me feel like I belonged among the talent of people who enter CASology each week.  Thanks Kimberly for always being so encouraging!!!  (and using all those exclamation points!!!) 
I hope you have a wonderful birthday my friend!
