Shake your maracas!


Yep, get em' out and shake em!  RIGHT NOW!  Because it is Kate's Birthday!  Some of the Pacific Northwest Stamping Gals are having a blog hop for her.  


Kate is such a unique person.  She is so vibrant, both in her personality and in with her creations.  Her excitement and spirit are contagious!  Being able to know her is an absolute pleasure. So with that, HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATE!  

Now let's get this party started!  But don't worry, it's "nacho typical party!" ;)  Case in point:



This card includes a journal card from Fancy Pants (totally reminds me of a Mexican blanket!), up  against some nice tangerine paper from SU!.  It also features stamps from Sweet Stamp Shop (retired sets).  I stamped and cut my images and added some stickles on the rim of the glass for some margarita salt, mounted them on this large circle and included this sentiment  I used the upper alphabet set to stamp "Fiesta" and colored it in so it was solid.  My favorite part is the home pinata like banner across the top, which I made with some tissue paper and secured it with washi across the top.  The sea green really stands out from the orange and black!  I added a few more circles with little accents, including one Freckled Fawn enamel shape.  

Now, please go on over the the other ladies blogs to see what they've made for Kate.  If you didn't start from the beginning you can go back to the top of the list as all the blogs are listed below. 

Katie (you are here!)

Last but not least, please visit Kate and wish her the happiest of birthdays!

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATE!

Katie, thank you for your kind words and this awesome card. Oh my gosh, did you know that I sing "fiesta forever" like all the time at home? I am a veritable jukebox of 80's hits. So this really is perfect. And if you are ever looking for amazing tacos, Borracho in Ballard and on 1st Ave. in Pike Market is the BEST in Seattle, in my opinion! We should go there sometime!! Now, I really missed you on Sunday and I hope you sold all the candy, but you better make it to our next gathering, or I won't be in a fiesta mood!!! :) You are fantastic; thank you for taking the time to hop for me! xo
