A JUG-Head Birthday!

DSCF0509

Oh, I am SO excited to be participating in a very special birthday blog hop for a very special person!  Today is Elise’s birthday!  WOOHOO!  There is no one out in blogland who has more energy, vim & vigor than Elise!  You only need to visit her blog, Mamacow Creations,  a couple of times to feel the love!!!  And the girls at JUGS are giving her her own little birthday blog hop!!!  I hope you’ll participate and give her back some of the encouragement for which she’s so well-known!

I resisted the temptation to do a Western card (cuz I know she loves her animals), since I had just done one, but I did use a cute little CS set that really sums up how I feel about her:

This also uses Karen’s Sweet Sunday Sketch #112:

AND the color inspiration from C84FN23:

She definitely lights up the room wherever she goes!   She sparkles & shines just like the glitter on her card:

So add your name to the blog hop roll and be sure to stop over to Elise’s blog and shout “hey”!  The  hop will continue until Friday, April 15, so you have lots of time!

Okay! So I t-h-o-u-g-h-t... I was done crying! But NOWWWWWWWW, you've got me going, AGAIN! Ohhhhhhhh, LeAnne! You little cutie pie - I've got a big lump in my throat and a box of Kleenex on my lap - as I grin, chortle and cackle, like a loon, all the while, weeping, rocking and giggling, all over again! {This is why I never make VIDEOS!} What a mess! Meanwhile, you crafty lil' vixen, are YOU such a delightful creature or WHAT!?! THIS card {*swoon!*} has left me applauding {my family is becoming concerned about my outbursts about now... pretty sure I just heard a kid ask "is she going to be like this ALL year?"} - it's POSITIVELY LeAnn-GORGEOUS! {I'm advocating to make that a registered adjective... We'll see...} I love that you created what felt absolutely "right!" and then the fact that you made this in MY honor... Okay, tears and the whole shebang starting ALL over again! Ohhhh, maybe the family SHOULD be concerned! heee hee No, seriously, MY LOVE! The lady that dragged me into CTD fun... and with whom I hope to place a REAL eye on, one day very soon [!].... I am THRILLED that you were drafted... uh, I mean... that YOU were willing to play with my silly/AMAZING friend, Dana G. {that stands for "Gee, she's AMAZING!"} Suddenly, this rather ... LARGE number... isn't quite soooooo alarming... THANKS, for making it seem a lot more fun... ! I'm SO delighted that you played along and crafted for "the cause..." I promise not to complain about my "big" number.... REALLY! I love you, my dear! THANK goodness, for darling friends like YOU! xoxoxo!
