Happy Birthday To YOU!!

We wanted to wish
Darlene a  very HAPPBIRTHDAY today in a special way! 
Hope you will join in the fun and get some amazing birthday card ideas along the way.  
We also hope you will stop over to Darlene's blog and wish her a 
Happy Birthday !
Let the party begin!!!!

Diane that's me
Darlene....our birthday girl

 Here's my card.....
I have known Dar for quite some time now.....the last two years
she has come to Michigan and stayed here....
we have had some really good and fun times!

I also know that 2 of her favorite things are "flip flops"
(she even wears them in the winter)
and the color PURPLE!!

So what better card could "I" make for her
other then a purple flip flip card!!!

I used this super, super cute and easy cut file from 
The Cutting Cafe -  Flip Flop Card!
I could sit and make dozens of these!
(in fact, come back next week, as I have another to share)

I have to admit my stock of purple paper is not good.
But I had some gorgeous purple paper from
Classy Cards 'n Such called Purple Silk.
It does feel like silk, too!
The purple flower is one I have had forever
from my stash!

So I want to wish you a very Happy Birthday Dar
and I hope Mark takes you out for dinner
and a little wine,
(I say "little" as I remember the last time you had wine while you were here...teehee)!!

I wish you all the best and many, many more to come my friend!!!

Next stop is Jenny....or you can start all over!!!

Hi Diane! I don't even know where to begin to comment on all of the awesomeness here! My jaw has dropped and you are one VERY talented and creative gal. I couldn't pick a favorite if I tried, and thank you so much for joining my "If the Shoe Fits" challenge with both of your fabulous entries!

Leslie Miller said...

Fabulous and very special! I totally missed the boat on this and I feel awful. That's when you really know it's time to cut back. The job has to go and that's all there is to it.
