(Belated) Happy Birthday, Barb!

Last weekend, Virgnia Lu held a surprise virtual birthday blog hop for Barb Engler.
Barb is one of the sweetest bloggers who I "met" through the Hero Arts Flickr group.  
She makes timely visits and leaves comments on the hundreds of blogs that she follows 
and my day is always brighter after reading a "Barb comment".

She is also a whiz when it comes to cardmaking and always incorporates
a new technique that she learned, or shares the latest trend in her work.
What's amazing about all of this is she also has a FULL TIME JOB.
She's pretty much the Energizer Bunny in human form.

So I couldn't go without linking up a card for her, just under the wire.


 I used stamps from Paper Smooches and the candle is from Hero Arts. 
The images were colored with Copics and some sprinkles were added
with a white paint pen.




I'm also linking this card up at CASology. This week, the cue word is SUGAR. I think all that frosting qualifies for a ton of sugar!





Belated Happy Birthday, Barb! I know your day was as special as you are. 
Have another fantastic year!

  18. Once you've mastered playing each hand separately, it will seem like you are playing without even thinking. In order to learn how the pedals operate, the right questions must be posed to the right person. Do we Need a Piano?
