Happy Birthday Dear Mynn!


One of my Design Team Sisters, Ellen, over at Inkspirational put together a Blog Hop to celebrate Mynnette Kitchen's birthday.  We were asked to CASE one of Mynn's posts in creating our own card to celebrate Mynn.  I chose this one:
Although Mynn's beautiful, original card was created with digis, the one above was stamped repeatedly over a card base and then water colored with Distress Inks. i added buttons and liquid pearls similar to what Mynn did on her card. I hope she likes it!  To see what others have created for Mynn join the blog hop below:

Sandie:  London Days
Ruth:  Flower Sparkle 
Yvonne:  Journey Into Artistry ( You are here!) 
Marina:  My Perfect Life
Nikki:  Nikki Nicole Stalker
Meighan:  Stampin with Meighan
Want more? The Technique Time Tuesday DT is also hopping for
Mynnette's birthday! 

To further celebrate Mynn's birthday, we are also giving away blog candy.  In order to have a chance to win, you need to visit each blog and leave a comment on each one, including this one.  You have until 5:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, May 16, to leave your comments.  One of the blog hop sites will be chosen randomly and from there, one of the comments from that site will be randomly selected. The winner will be posted on Friday, May 17.

Happy birthday dear Mynn! Hugs, Yvonne
