Happy Birthday to Loll!

 Today is Loll Thompson's birthday and many of her friends that are on or have been on her Design Teams are posting birthday cards in her honor.  If you know Loll, then you know she is a very kind, thoughtful and compassionate person, always thinking of others and reaching out when they need a friend.

Here is the card I made for Loll and hopefully she has already received it.

I sponged the background using torn strips of computer paper as a mask and Distress Inks and finger sponge daubers.

As the card says -  I'm wishing you blue skies and sunny days for your birthday Loll!
