Happy Belated Birthday Marybeth!!

When Joyce emailed me to ask if I wanted to join in the surprise birthday blog hop for Marybeth over at Marybeth's Time for Paper, I jumped at the chance! After all, Marybeth is one of those very special people in the card making world. She's first of all, a kind, generous, sweet, and very thoughtful person. You just have to read her posts to see that! And then there are her cards...Oh. My. Goodness! So many descriptive adjectives come to mind when I think about her cards, but I've managed to narrow it down to just two that pretty much exemplify her cards: beautiful and elegant. It's always a good thing to pop over to her blog and see her exquisite creations. If by chance, you've never had the opportunity to visit her blog, (and I can't believe that you wouldn't have...) be sure to go; you will never, ever, never be disappointed. Her cards are as lovely as she is.

Hey Marybeth! Happy (belated) birthday!! Joyce and Cathy organized this little hop to let you know how much you mean to all of us out in blogland, and I'm delighted to be a part of this. Sure hope you enjoy this hop, and God's richest blessings to you in the coming year, and always! Happy (belated) birthday Marybeth!!!! 



Here's the master list of participants in the hop, and if there are any problems with any links, just head back to Joyce or Cathy's blogs and you'll find the next name on the list. Oh!, at some point, be sure to stop over at Marybeth's blog and leave her some HB wishes too!!




Naturally, I made a card. What's a birthday without a birthday card?! In doing so, rather than CASing one of her cards, I tried to capture a bit of Marybeth's style. Here's hoping I succeeded!
