Today is an extra special day! Welcome to Lee's blog hop!

Today is my friend Lee's birthday and some of her "posse" have gotten together to celebrate her with a blog hop!

There is so much that I can say about Lee that I really don't know where to start. I guess I can start with the fact that I am very lucky to have been able to know Lee. She is one of the sweetest, truest people I know. Lee's creativity is a constant inspiration to me and I know to others as well. Lee is always ready with a smile or a smilie, as the case may be. Suffice it to say that Lee is a very special person and I am thrilled that I can help celebrate her on her "YOU" day!

For Lee's birthday card, I tried to incorporate many of the things that Lee loves. We start with some Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock, add in some glitter, copics, bling and pink... then we finish off with a fairy. Whew.. that was a little on the difficult side.. LOL.  Lastly, please work with me here... that IS a birthday candle ;-)

Lee, I truly hope that your birthday is as terrific as you are. May all your wishes come true! Enjoy your hop on your day :-) MWAH!
