Happy Birthday Boss Lady aka Kellie

Today is the birthday of our beautiful boss lady (aka Kellie Winnell). Happy Birthday Kel I hope you have a great day and that you get spoilt by your family and loved ones.

We are having a surprise hop for her and there is a surprise for her that she would never of guessed in a million years. I have only been on Kel's team for a short time (at Lil Lolita Boutique) but in this time I have learnt that she is a beautiful person who is very generous and of course has heaps of talent. I feel very lucky to be able to call Kel a friend.

The pink ladies, including international have joined forces with lil Lolita boutique for this fun birthday hop day!

So in the words of Kristy (AKA Princess) this is how the birthday surprise came about

"The Gorgeous Debbie had an idea and approached Christine the designer of our gorgeous Lolitas, and on the sly asked if she would design a KELLITA! Then Debbie let Kristy in on the secret and asked if she would like to help, of course Princess said yes! So together Debbie & Kristy sent pictures and ideas of what Kellita should look like....... So lets begin the hop so you can see our fabulous Kellita Birthday cards and join us in wishing Kellie a very happy birthday!"

When Debbie emailed me through Kellita I fell in love with it straight away. I had so much fund colouring her, especially the hair, being there was so much of it to colour (now how can I get hair that good in real life). Now if you know Kel you would know that she is a redhead and as such that was our only criteria, colour the hair red.


I wanted to make my card bright and cheery. The paper I had brought just before I got the stamp and I thought it fitted Kellita perfectly. I have used this months sketch from Ticked Pink Stamp Monthly Challenges as I thought it was quite fitting. The card is fairly basic (not heaps of embellishments) but I thought with the paper being quite bright and I wanted the focus to be on this awesome stamp. I did however do lots of distressing (knowing how much Kel likes it) and even managed to slide a sentiment in there.

I will stop waffling now so you can continue on with the hop. If you didn’t arrive from  Maya's  Blog then go back to the start at Debbie's blog and hop along with us.

Now of course what is a hop without prizes??? 2 lucky commenters will get the chance to win this SPECIAL EDITION KELLITA!!! All you have to do is comment on each card. The winners will be announced on Wednesday the 11th August on the Tickled Pink Blog.

Next stop on the hop is Jodie.

  13. I like the way your stitching echoes the laced opening of Kellita's top. The turquoise highlighting of the hair ribbon picking out that colour in the paper is a lovely touch too.
