Happy Birthday Joy, from Kona (and me)!!
Happy Birthday Mounds!! I call my friend Joy Kennedy, Mounds... well, I TRY not to call her that in public. It's a nickname that started long ago at SCS... I think inside the pink playhouse thread, and it just stuck. LOL. You know, the candy bar.. Mounds of Joy? She brings everyone mounds of Joy INDEED.
I can't even tell you how much I adore her.... I'm sure a lot of you feel the same way. She is a very special friend and we all love her VERY much. Daisy and I (plus a whole lot of Joy's friends) got together and we are throwing her a surprise birthday party via the internet! So... SURPRISE MOUNDS!! If you want to play along, head over to Joy's blog and wish her a happy birthday! I hope your birthday is DA bomb sweet friend!
I told you yesterday about this exclusive stamp set called Hangin' Loose with Kona, only available at eclectic Paperie , but I didn't tell you that Joy absolutely LOVES Kona and that she thinks it is releasing tomorrow, but really..... to celebrate her birthday, Daisy is releasing the set TODAY! Not tomorrow like Joy planned! Go... now! Click here to get Kona right now!!
Check out the links below to see more birthday wishes and samples of this adorable set. (if I did not get you added to the list, please email me so I can add you.) You can also put in epkona in the search box at the SCS gallery and see all of the uploads there.
Can you see the sweat from holding up the big cake? Little Kona even came to help and the candles are still sliding off. Gives new meaning to "waxing the board." The cake and the blow torch sentiment are from the set Granny's Secrets. Joy isn't even old (30 something), but I could not resist using that cake! The cake and the frosting are covered with Shimmerz, along with the stripe on the surfboard. The sand has brown Sparkly Fluff all over. I just added little dots and lines with my Quickie Glue Pen, then sprinkled it on, then tapped it off. Perfect for sand! The designer paper is My Mind's Eye, I used Stampin Up! 1 inch Circle Punch and the Word Window Punch for the sentiments and the Label One Nestie for the main image. I used a Friskers border punch I bought at Memories of Time, (my local LSS) along the bottom. The candles sparkle with the help of my Sakura Stardust Pen. I hope Joy likes it....I know she is SURE to love all these cards! Check em out!
Joy (and wish her a happy birthday too please)

Have a great day everyone! Hope Kona put a smile on your face. Thanks for stopping by and coming to Joy's surprise party!
