This is an extra special post for a special friend - Joyce from Cards by the Sea blog. You might know Joyce by the pretty owl icon she has by her name and the sweet comments she leaves under your beautiful creations!! Joyce is also one of the designers of the 12 Kits of Christmas, and is always leaving me messages of encouragement that I greatly appreciate!
I wanted to make her a special card for her birthday so I pulled out my newly arrived Papertrey stamps. I just started buying Papertrey stamps and was happy to finally get these beauties kissed with ink and put to use! The Lilly of the Valley is the flower for May, so I thought it would be perfect to wish Joyce a Happy Birthday! . To personalise my card for Joyce I added a fancy "J" from the Serendipity Elegant Alphabet set.
Here's a pretty bouquet from my garden!
Happy Birthday Joyce!
