Happy Birthday, BSF!

That's right. BSF. For those of you who don't know what that means, it means Best Stamping Friend. And my BSF is Kim, The MFT Lady. And we are surprising her with this blog hop to celebrate.


One of Kim's most beloved lines are the PI girls. So I took 2 of her sets, used a little of the MFT paper, added some bling and MFT ribbon, colored it up with some colored pencil and gamsol and this sweet little card was born. I really must like my BSF a lot because you'll notice that I actually pulled out the sewing machine for this card and didn't, for my last.

But I guess Kim is worth it. She is one of the truest, most giving friends you could ever wish to have. She owns the sharpest wit, and the most killer laugh I've ever known a Southern Belle to have.

Happy Birthday, Kim. Hope this birthday is the bestest.

But wait, there a just a couple more people that want to wish Kim the best on her birthday.

So, so sweet, Alma -- the shading on Lil' Kim (don't you think that should be the PI girl's official name? *giggle*) is perfection, and your post touched me. I agree with everything you said about our mutual friend! :)
