Happy Birthday Sue Ann!

Hello everyone!  I have made it home safe and sound from Boston but I have tons to get caught up on here on the blog.  I had a great time and will share some pictures of a get-together I had with some blog friends while I was in Boston.  So stay tuned for that! 

I am here with today's post for a very special lady.....I mean special.  It is her birthday and some of my friends (Laurie and Jen) and I are doing a mini birthday blog hop for her today!  (I am a bit late.....but that's just how I roll these days!)  SUE ANN.........I don't even know where to start.  You have become such a special blog friend to me.  You always and I mean always leave such heartfelt comments on my blog and they never cease to amaze me at bringing a smile to my face.  Whether it's the comment on my card or the added little bit about your life......I LOVE them!  Do you know how much I enjoyed your little birthday package you sent me?  Oh my....it came at such a great time.  And that adorable happy birthday video?  Well girly, I don't sing (except when it's just me) but I will leave you with this: 

Happy Happy Birthday today is your special day......Happy Happy Birthday that's what I'm here to say!  (my coworker used to sing this to everyone on their birthday and let's just say that it goes on and on and she always danced to it too.  So imagine me singing this to myself to you today my friend.)  :)

Here is my card to you Sue Ann!


I thought it would be fun to use some of those rolled roses for your card.  I recently bought the MFT mini rolled roses die.  Oh my.  LOVE!  Now I can make 3 sizes of these felt roses.  hehe 



Sue Ann, I can't say enough about how sweet you truly are.  I just hope that one day I will be able to meet you in person and give you a big hug!  Happy happy birthday my sweet friend!  I hope you have a wonderful day and drink a 'rita for me!

I can't leave without saying that this gorgeous color combination came from CR84FN color challenge this week.  I can't stop using them! 



Did you see Wee Memories challenge this week?  I have been loving those too!  This week:  Anything Goes!
Thanks Jenny for another great challenge!!

I am going to have to quit looking at your blog Amy, you are costing me too much money! Last week I ordered an embossing folder you used and now I guess I have to order those dies for the rolled roses. They are gorgeous. I zoomed in really close to catch all the detail. I don't even want to know what embossing folder you used today! You were sweet to do this for Sue Anne.
