Happy Birthday LeAnne

Our dear Merry Maker, LeAnne is celebrating an
important birthday
and we're having a surprise blog hop to celebrate.


Happy Birthday, LeAnne!




I know how LeAnne eagerly awaits the arrival of the 
Baltimore Orioles to her yard each year. 

So I made an attempt to color one for her.


The rest of the Design Team are celebrating too.

If  you're following the hop you came here from Deanne Kay.

Your next stop on the hop is Katie Melhus.

Or you can go to Merry Monday and start from there.

You can join the party by making a birthday card for LeAnne
and taking it over to
to link up.

There will be a winner and honorable mentions.

I'm going to take this over to 
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge
which is EMBOSS IT.

and

Seize the Birthday
which is Anything Goes
without the topping.

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!
