Happy Birthday!

Yes! Virginia Lu is turning ….(shhhh) 50 next month!

And can you think of a better way to celebrate than creating a “virtual party” where everyone can post a card and send her wishes?!

Most of you already know Virginia. I am sure you are visiting her site, you read her funny stories and look at her inspiring cards. But for me Virginia is more than that. She was the first friend I made when I started this hobby and this blog. She was always kind and sweet to leave me comments, and encourage me to make even better cards. I remember spending hours just looking at her flickr account which is packed of wonderful cards and it is a great source of inspiration.

I love her style, simple – colorful and fun creations. She is a published designer, she is a member of many Design Teams, she won tons of challenges all over the blogs and has been a guest designer sooooo many times! But yet she is so sweet to visit your blog, leave you some blog love and comment on your creations.

What I love about her blog is that it’s not only inspirational but it’s also funny and yummy! Her occasional posts about her DH Dr. John (wish I will meet you both sometime) are hilarious! And did you know she is an excellent cook? She posts recipes and photos of delicious dishes once in a while!

I am telling you, her talent has no limit!

So my dear friend Virginia, I want to wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart! Please ask Dr. John to give you a hug for me! Here is a card I made for you!I tried to keep it simple, using bright and happy colors! Inspired by your style.

and here is a closer look

So go ahead! Make a card for her and link it to her blog! There are some giveaways for you to win! Check it out HERE.
