Happy Birthday Laurie! Blog Hop

Today is a very good friend of mine's birthday.........Laurie.  Some of her friends and I are celebrating with her today by hosting a birthday blog hop in her honor!  Laurie is such a talented stamping friend and I mean talented!  You need to check out her blog but I'm sure you already have because she is "Royalty"!  :) 

I knew what I wanted to do for my card for her birthday blog hop today.........CASE one of her cards she's sent me.  She recently sent me this special card when I was feeling down and it has set on my counter since then and I get to look at it every day!  One of Laurie's favorite colors is RED so what better to use than red on a birthday card for her. 

Here is my Laurie CASE:


Laurie, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for being such a great friend.  I so enjoy talking to you and even better getting together in person!  I know that isn't possible as much as we'd like due to the distance but I think of you as one of my best friends.  Here's to having a wonderful birthday today!

Now, go check out the other friends that are celebrating Laurie's birthday with me!
