Happy Birthday, Maria F.!!!

Yes, you read the title right - there is another surprise birthday party in blogland today! This time it's for Maria F., also known as rieslingmama. That is also the name of her blog and you should definitely check it out. I love her artsy style and how she often uses scraps that are lying around. I tried to be artsy
when I made the card for her but it doesn't come as effortlessly to me as it does to her. I even used a piece of tissue paper that was on my desk!

The 50 is cut out from matte silver card stock and distressed with Tim Holtz's little hammer. 

This time the party is hosted by the wonderful Shirley. Hop on over, admire all the beautiful cards and then make one yourself for Maria and link it up! Thank you so much, Shirley, for organizing this surprise party for Maria!

Maria, I hope you have a wonderful birthday surrounded by family and friends, good food and laughter! You didn't think by escaping to snowy Michigan your friends in blogland would forget you...?

Happy Sunday to you all,
Susanne

Your comments on my blog bring a mega-watt smile to my face! THANK YOU! Your card for Maria is totally artsy, as in artsy awesome! Colours are fabulous, and the way the numbers funnel down to the big 5-0 (50...she's a young 'un. I remember 50 fondly...) is very cool! The big "celebrate" - perfect! Yes, you've created a card guaranteed to delight Maria, as it has for me! Have a great day...so far I've managed to avoid Mr. Vacuum's piercing stare *grin*
