Happy Birthday, Lydia!! - a blog hop!

Today I want to wish A GREAT BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO LYDIA, aka @understandblue!! To celebrate in style, some of her Twitter friends (Tweeple??) had the grand idea to throw a little blog hopping celebration for her! If you just happened upon my blog, make sure to go back and start at the beginning - Angelique's blog! Me, I like to think I'm more of a Blogging, Facebook, and now IRL friend of Lydia's - I came onto the Twitter scene late. :-) But because Lydia is so sweet and friendly and all-around wonderful, right away she introduced me to her aforementioned Tweeple! So here I am, hanging out with them on this blog hop, celebrating our @understandblue's birthday! I decided to make a card for Lydia, because as most of you know, that's what I do. I made my card mostly blue, because rumor has it Lydia is quite fond of blue...! :-) I chose this cutie patootie pig image from The Greeting Farm because I had to do something with a critter on it - Lydia is one of the biggest animal lovers I know! And although I'm not quite sure how much she adores pigs, I do happen to know she is quite fond of bacon. Doh! :-) I played with Jen's latest Sketch For You To Try for the layout. The sentiment - "The Sky's the Limit" - just seems so appropriate for Lydia. With her talent, and the enthusiasm she puts into everything she does - truly, the sky is the limit for her. Actually, maybe she's not even limited by the sky!

I do truly hope you'll take a moment and hop with us - if you're typically only a card-blog-hopper, you're in for a treat. This hop includes other types of people - can you imagine?? :-) Authors, artists, geeks... which brings me to the next stop on our tour, my very own geeky little brother, Jon. If you live under a rock and you've never visited Lydia's blog, you'll certainly want to do that - she's super talented at both cardmaking AND writing, and has a wonderful sense of humor to go along with it! And again, a very happy birthday to you, Lydia!! xoxox

    I don't know how I can love both pigs and bacon, but I do, and I really love your little pig here!!! Is this the card you were making in your clean stamp cave last night, you wascally wabbit???

    I'm soo glad we are IRL friends as well as virtual friends. I had always wanted to hang with the Stampin' Libby I idolize, and I'm glad I got to meet you, your brother, and your adorable kids. One of the greatest things I've ever learned is that a group of foxes is called a lurk.

    What is a group of Twitterers called? A skulk?

    Whatever it's called, I adore it.

    Thank you sooo much! I'M SO EXCITED THAT JON THE GEEK IS IN!!!
