Happy Birthday Justice Ginsburg!

So excited to be hopping along with a few Bloggy Friends to wish Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg a very Happy Birthday!  The most wonderful Joan has brought us all together to wish this wonderful lady the happiest of days!  

We have some prizes for you too!  There are two Wonderful Women stamp sets from Kelly Purkey and two Dare to Dream stamp sets from Hero Arts up for grabs!  Just hop and leave us all some love and you could have one of these awesome sets arriving in your mailbox soon!  And the key word here is love!  Today, for me, is not about politics... it's about celebrating an awesome woman, leader, fighter, mother, daughter, wife... you could go on and on!

Without further ado... here's how I was inspired by Justice Ginsburg:


I was quick to want to participate and celebrate Justice Ginsburg, but then I even more quickly became worried about what kind of card I would make... what would she like... how could I honor her and create something fun for her!  Yes!  I mailed this out to her on Monday and I have no idea if she'll ever receive it...  I hope she does and I hope she loves it because I do!


As I was searching the internet for inspiration, thanks to my friend Amy, I stumbled on a few memes and pieces of artwork and learned a few things I didn't know before and this idea started to form!  You may or may not know but a while back someone came up with a meme comparing the tough Justice Ginsburg to Rapper Notorious B.I.G. and shortly after a book was written with the title... you can find lots of pics, tees, cups, you name it with various versions of this type of artwork.   I wondered how she feels about this...I think it's cool... does she.  Rumor has it she has a good sense of humor about it and even gives out some tees... true?  IDK... but I decided to go with the theme but on a more feminine note.. 'cause I imagine she'd like that...



And I def wanted to add the fun "Notorious" sentiment without having it be a punch in the face... so I let it kind of blend in.


That lacy border and pretty pearls were meant to represent the Jabots and necklaces that she wears along with her robes and some pretty flowers never hurt!


So ... The Happiest of Birthday Wishes are going out to the Honorable Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.. floating along the interweb airways and hopefully at least somewhere in her heart she receives it!


Be sure to check back at Joan's Blog on March 21st to see if you won one of the four stamp sets being given away!  Commenting closes March 19th at 11:59pm.
