Happy Birthday, Linda!

Today's post is for a very special lady: Linda, of Linda Trace Designs and A Blog Name Hero fame. Anyone who has a birthday in December, and after Christmas, certainly deserves a special shout-out, don't you agree? So welcome to our little blog hop for Linda!

Hopefully you've arrived here from Kelly Marie's blog. If not, please either start with Mary Dawn, or heck, just hop around! We're trying to work around the time differences, so if we're not all live yet, the participant list is below.

Here's my card:

For those of you who've been following my 6x6 pad disappearing act: yes, more paper from my Basic Grey Urban Prairie effort. These are my three favorite papers from the bunch, and I love them against that black background!

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Many Birthday Messages, and I chose the "dazzling" one because Linda's Twitter avatar always has her dazzling smile. :D I even added some bling to drive that point home.

Up next in our little adventure: Stephanie B! So hop on over and see what she's made!

Again, in case any links along the way aren't working (it happens), here's the list:
