Hannelie. Isn't she just the sweetest person?! Not only are her cards ever and always amazing, but she shares digi sentiments with us all so often...how cool is that??!!! I can remember back to when I first started blogging and there were those bloggers that I held in total awe; Hannelie was (and still is) one of them. I mustered up my courage one day and left a comment on her blog because of an incredible card. Shortly after that, I got a comment from her! Let me tell you, I was over the moon! Someone as important and as good a cardmaker as Hannelie took notice of a newbie. That's the kind of person she is...generous in spirit, sweetest disposition, and a darling friend. Thanks to bloggers like Hannelie, I felt encouraged to continue in my own efforts. Thanks to bloggers like Hannelie, I in turn encourage others. She has that effect on us, you know? Thanks sweet Hannelie, you're the best.
Just a little party for today, starting off with a few decorations and some pretty yellow table settings. We'll multiply them as needed, and by my calculations, we'll need about a million!
And a cake like this at every table. You know our birthday girl likes polka dots!! And bright colors!
For presents, I thought I'd shop for an outfit, complete with jewelry and a handbag. But this one didn't come with shoes....
So I found some matchy-matchy ones! Aren't these just the cutest??!!
The last present is a little lear jet. So you can go see your girls, or head off to SA anytime your heart desires. And if you should want to make a few (hundred) trips to see us all in the US and all around the world, well, we won't complain!
Actually, I have one more present. But you can't see it. Not because I don't want you to, but because it's unseeable. It's a special gift that I know she'll want. No More Migraines. EVER. That's what I'd like to give her most. Or "ungive" her! And do I have a card? You know I do. And it'll be winging it's way to her even as we speak. Late? A bit, but I'm calling it an extension of the celebration! You can have a peek before you get it in the mail, Hannelie:
So birthday blessings enough to last the whole year through dear friend. May all your dreams and wishes come true!!
(I'll be popping this into Tag You're It #29, Less Is More, and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge today too.)
Started with some Michaels white for the base, and the embossed panel. I sponged some pink ME ink very lightly on the embossed polka dots and added an SC tag in black. The stars and HB are from MFT in gold, and I glittered up one star with HS chunky glitter. A smidgen of gold twine and some HS mist surrounded by a star 'frame' and done.
