Leeward...

I've taken a million personality tests. They are so fascinating and so fun. I love that shock you get when you see the results. The "oh my - that IS me" moment. Much more revealing than looking in the mirror.

The Myers-Briggs is my favorite and to me, just dead solid perfect. I read a great book about that test that described the different types of personalities it defines, and one of those types is a person most often described as a connector.

A connector is that person in your circle who just seems to know not just everyone, but who knows everyone you really need to know. They are magnetic, and they are universally liked. People describe this person as someone who makes them feel energized and happy. Very frequently, they make people laugh.

Fortunately, I know more than a few connectors. And they've connected me to wonderful people and fun experiences. One of these people has a birthday today.

If I had to describe her in one word, I'd pick smiley. :)

She bounces into an online conversation like Tigger, with joy and warmth and exuberance and you just can't help but love her.

Her name is Lee.

And this is what I think of her.

Stamps: Unity March & April kit of the month Ink: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Versamark  
Paper: Retired DSP, Melon Mambo Textured Cardstock, Whisper White  
Accessories: Ribbon, Bling, MFT Doily Die, Corner Rounder, SU Label Punch

That's right. Sassy, pink, hipster little Lee is growing up! She's probably at LEAST 21. :)

We are having a little LuvLee blog hop in her honor, so check out some of my homegirls' birthday cards for the sweetest, kindest little connector I know!!

Here are my friends' cards in no particular order:



Alison
Joanne
Paula
Lori
Misti
Crafty Math Chick
Nancy
Carole
Christi

Have fun hopping around, and count your blessings for all the sweet friends that stamping has brought you!

Happy birthday sweet Lee. You are a treasure!

EVERYONE fits into the catagories. I'm glad that you get a kick out of it, though.Love the card.The lady is why I bought that KOM! LOVE HER
