So, this week's regularly scheduled challenge has been bumped ahead (and poor LeAnne had NOOOO idea - we are such good sneaks!! ;) and we've made this week a BIRTHDAY, if you'd like to play along with us, create a birthday card and add your creation to the hop on the main blog HERE or you can just hop along!

Leslie gave us a few ideas of what LeAnne's favorite things were and she mentioned blue and flowers ... well, I wanted to try this new-to-me set from SU! called Flower Patch along with the matching dies! Perfect time to use them....

I haven't known LeAnne personally for long, but I am so very honored to be "playing" along side her at Merry Monday and I have admired her "cyberly" for YEARS! LeAnne, you are such an inspiration to the crafting world...I am wishing you the biggest, happiest, most spoiled birthday yet!! Happy Blooming Birthday!! xoxoxo
