inspiration monday


okay, so technically martha's birthday isn't until tomorrow......but when you have a dear friend who inspires you as much as martha inspires me, that's worth getting the party started a little early, don't you think?!!!
 most of you already know martha as an extremely talented and accomplished artist, but did you know that she's also an absolutely gorgeous child of God, has a heart the size of texas, is a fabulous listener, will cheer you on like there's no tomorrow,  will tickle your funny bone with her witty sense of humor, is an absolute blast to go to calligraphy workshops with,  and can draw and paint like one of the masters (i know that falls into the "extremely talented and accomplished artist" category, but there are some things that could never be stressed enough!)?!!  

martha, your friendship is such a sweet, precious blessing,
and i celebrate you not only today, but every day!!
much love and happiness to you always, birthday girl!!!
xoxo

i'm late to the game, which means for once - I'm on time! this is an adorable card, and I finally figured out the element that makes your lettering go pop - you are a master of the shadow! I don't know how you do it, but I just love the subtle shadows behind your script letters. They make your lettering take on a 3D look!
