Happy Birthday Joyce Blog Hop

Today is my good friend Joyce Mehrberg's  (Cards by the Sea) birthday and...surprise!  Well, probably not a surprise as she has organized several blog hops for her friends and had to have known we would want to honor her on her birthday with a blog hop of her own, but SURPRISE anyway Joyce.  Joyce is such a great friend to so many people, everyone wanted to participate in her special blog hop.  Kim of Cupcakes, Cards and Kim was nice enough to do the organization for the blog hop.  Thanks Kim! 
                                     Here is the card I made to celebrate Joyce's birthday.
I used PTI's Rosie Posie for this card.  Joyce had told me on several occasions that I HAD to get Rosie Posie, that I would love it, that it was one of her favorites, how she couldn't stop using it, but I resisted for many months.  I couldn't stop thinking of it and admiring all the gorgeous cards using it, Joyce's included.  Here is one of my favorite Rosie Posie cards made by Joyce.

 I finally got the set a few weeks ago and, Joyce was right!  I do love it and it is such fun to stamp those pretty roses in different colors to create pretty patterned paper.  I used my linen/canvas and also woodgrain impression plates, Mat Stack #3 die and stamp set, some neat brown net trim and the diecut roses and leaves from Rosie Posie.  I hope you have a wonderful birthday Joyce and enjoy your birthday blog hop!

Make sure you check out all the other cards made by Joyce's friends for her birthday.

WOW!! Spectacular card!! So glad you bought this set. Now I can case you, haha! I love the embossing and the layout on your card. And the colors are so elegant. (what color is the lightest ink?) I love the patterned paper you created. Really, really gorgeous!

Gayatri said...

Wow! Beautiful colours and I love the background stamping using the roses stamps. Great texture. Joyce will be thrilled :)

This card is gorgeous! I love the colors you chose to stamp the flowers in, the cute sentiment, and that neat ribbon you used behind the red strip. All the textures are great! Joyce is going to love it :)

Such a fabulously beautiful card...

And of course those beautiful blooms...
they look so great on that mat stack!
That ribbon behind the paper strip...
Think I need some!;)
She will love this...
especially as she is such an enabler!

I'm in awe of another beautifully stamped background! Love these roses and your embossed wood background! What a great card to honor Joyce!

Beautiful card for Joyce Cathy! She will love it.

Kim said...

Cathy, did you and Renee color coordinate? Just so beautiful and that trim behind the red, so perfect. Rosie Posie is a fabulous set, so happy that I have it so I will be able to CASE your beautiful card. Thanks for playing along today.

Okay... I think you and Joyce may just have me wrangled into this beautiful set. :) I LOVE the woodgrain with the lace - she'll love it!

Kristin said...

Wow. This is a beautiful card!! She will love it!

Joyce said...

This is such a gorgeous card, and it looks even better in person than it does on line. The colors you chose are so striking and elegant, and there is so much great texture on the card in person. Thanks so much for this card and the fabulous gift (which was tempting me all week, but I resisted even taking a peek). You are a super friend, and I am so glad you are helping me celebrate my birthday.

Cathy this is a beauty! I have been resisting this set as well and know everyone loves it. Every card I see from this set is gorgeous. Love the colors in your card and that fun kind of ribbon behind the band. Beautiful choices for embossing !

So pretty Cathy! I love how you showcased those PTI roses! Surely your friend will cherish this beauty!

This is such a lovely card. This set really is spectacular and you have really used it awesomely with such pretty colors and your label beneath is such a nice place for your cut out roses. Who doesn't love roses on their birthday?

Gorgeous design, Cathy! I love the pretty stamped background and the wonderful colors! The Mat Stack image is perfect with the cut out flowers!

I love the warm color combo of your card as well as the woodgrain background with Rosie Posie-great pairing!

Pauline said...

This is a beautiful card for Joyce I love these images too, another set for my wish list! Fab colours, and I love the label shape, a fab card!

Cyndie said...

Such a lovely card! I like the way you grouped the flowers over the sentiment panel, and made patterned paper for the bottom half of the card. Like you, I resisted Rosie Posie for a long time but finally caved, and I'm glad I did!
