Happy Birthday Nancy!!

This is my second post today.  To see Mercy's sketch just scroll down to the next post!  Thank you!




Hi there!!  Welcome to our Birthday Blog Hop for the amazing Nancy McKinney, the wildly talented illustrator of the Whimsical Wishes line at Taylored Expressions!!    If you came here from Jodi's blog then you're in the right place.  If you've just happened along then you can start the beginning of the hop at Karen's blog!

Of course for Nancy's birthday I just had to use one of the sets she illustrated.  It was tough, but I finally chose Beary Special.  I paired this darling bear with some new My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy...Tickled Pink papers.  I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSS93 for the layout.  The balloons were cut with the smallest balloon die from the Make A Wish Ballon Dies and were tied with some Divine Twine.  I rounded the left top corner of each layer with my Corner Chomper and then covered them up with the balloons!  The bear was colored with Copics and the belly and pads of his feet were paper pieced.  The birthday hat and sentiment are from Beary Special Accessories!

Nancy.....I hope you have a FANTASTIC birthday!!  You're AMAZING!

The next stop on this hop is Melissa's blog....

Thanks for stopping by!
