Happy Birthday Bev...Let's Celebrate and Happy Dance!!

Today we are celebrating Bev's birthday!!  Bev is one of the nicest people out there in the blog world.  Happy Dance is one of my very favorite blogs to read.  Her cards are clean, simple and graphic. And every post gives you a peek into her life.  Whether it be about typing a 75-year old manuscript, or the seeing the fox on the bluff, or making potato salad, or enjoying one of the 20 grandchildren - each post makes me smile!!

Bev also remembers birthdays.  It just takes a short scroll through her blog to see all of the birthday wishes that she sends out to others, so we definitely have to celebrate her birthday.  Darnell and Ardyth are the ringleaders of this one.  Darnell's blog is a little busy hosting her current NBUS challenge so all of our birthday cards and wishes for Bev are being linked up here.  Anyone can link up for Bev.

With Darnell as a host and with Bev as a big NBUS player (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff), it was a no-brainer for me to do a NBUS card.  I even dug deep for this one - a stamp set that had gathered dust. Happy birthday Bev!!  I hope you are celebrating and doing a happy dance!!

Yay HB2U

So well said, Kims, and such a perfect card for Bev! I love that you used on-trend circles as a change from conversation bubbles and I love that this set finally got dusted off and turned into US!! Thank you very much for your support of my second NBUS Challenge and for your third entry!! Hugs, Darnell

Vibrant colors and so very CAS, love it! It definitely has a 'graphic' feel! :-)
Love the sentiment in the circles, a great way to add depth, without too much ado.
And of course a few sequins for the finishing touch, sure makes your card sparkle!
Bye,

Marjolein
