Hello and welcome to Tanya's Surprise Birthday Blog Hop!
If you're here, then you just came from  Liz's blog, your next and last stop is at Purple Fantastick Creations. 
Tanya has been a great friend to many of us and we wanted to do something special, to show her how much we appreciate all she does, and wish her a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY. 
Thanks Tanya for being a great friend, you're always there with kind words and support! 
You told me my blog needed some love, so I added lots of it for you!  So very happy to be part of your Birthday Blog Hop! 
Have a fabulous day!!!

Here's a card I made for you! Will mail it out today!
I first stamped white card stock with a Sizzix/HeroArts stamp and emboss combo "Friend". Watercolor pencils were used for the coloring of the images, after it was colored I embossed it with the embossing folder, inked the edges, added Stickles Diamond to highlight, and finally rhinestones to finish it off! 
XOX   Again, Have a very HAPPY Birthday!  XOX

Make sure to leave a comment on all the blogs. There will be one lucky person chased to win some great blog candy at the end. It's sponsored by Your Memories Here. Really cool holiday primas and Tim Holtz distress inks! YUMMY!

Here's the line up, in case you missed someone!

Remember this Thanksgiving & Christmas when your eating your dinner, smiling and laughing, that in another house there's an empty chair where a hero should be sitting. They gave up their lives so you could sit with your family, so light a candle for the heroes who did not make it back and for those who are still serving out in Afghanistan, Iraq or another place. ♥
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

JOY 2011
