SURPRISE! Happy Birthday Kellie!

Hello, hello!

It’s our fabulous boss lady aka Kellie Winnell’s Birthday! And to celebrate we are having the most fun surprise hop for her... believe me when I say SURPRISE because we have such a great sneaky trick up our sleeves for this amazingly talented kind hearted, generous boss/friend of ours. ;)
The pink ladies, including international have joined forces with Lil Lolita boutique for this fun birthday hop day!

The fabulous Debbie had an idea and approached Christine, the designer of the gorgeous Lolitas, and on the sly asked if she would design a KELLITA! Then Debbie let Kristy in on the secret and asked if she would like to help, of course Princess said yes! So together Debbie and Kristy sent pictures and ideas of what Kellita should look like... and voila! So lets begin the hop so you can see all of the beautiful Kellita birthday cards and join us in wishing Kellie a very happy birthday!
If you didn’t arrive here from Debra's blog then head to the start at Debbie's blog and hop along with us.


For my card celebrating Kellie's big day I just had to channel the vintage yumminess that I admire so much about her creations. So I pulled out an edge distresser and put it to work on the OA Thrift Shop papers. Then little Kellita told me that she needed some ribbon roses and pearl sprays to really pay homage to Kellie's cards and who was I to argue? :)

Happy Birthday Kellie! It has been so wonderful getting to know you this year... you are truly one of the sweetest gals out there and you deserve all the best and more on your special day!

Now of course what is a hop without prizes???
2 lucky commenters will get the chance to win this SPECIAL EDITION KELLITA!!! All you have to do is comment on each card and the winners will be announced on Wednesday the 7th August on the Tickled Pink Blog.
Ok, your next stop on the hop is Karen!

Those leaves pick out the green of her top so delightfully & the pearl sprays are a lovely touch with those big blooms. Very tactile.

Wow! The mixture of textures and style in this card seem odd but go prefectly together. It's like hippie vintage or something like that. I love it! Looking forward to more wonderful cards from you all! Thanks!
