Happy Birthday, Lesley!!!

I am so excited today to be part of a 
blog hop.

I "met" Lesley through the Design Team for "The Color Dare" challenge blog.  I've only known her a short time, but I know she's an incredibly supportive and helpful person.  We have a number of things in common.... we're both Canadian, teachers (she used to teach music, I'm currently teaching music) and I've discovered we have similar interests in music and movies too.  I love going to her blog to see what she's created because it's always fantastic and inspirational!

So - I'd like to encourage you to go over to Lesley's blog and wish her a happy birthday - She can be found at

Joan, love your card. The blues are gorgeous. I also love the vintage feel. Fabulous.

Very pretty! It is always nice to add in something that you know will really speak to the person, so the sheet music is so perfect. I love the stamping as well; those water splashes from French Foliage are wonderful!
