Happy Birthday Darnell!

IMG_5483


Happy Birthday to my dear friend both on and off of blogland Darnell!
You are just the sweetest and true person who is adored by so many!

If I was in high school again I would wish to sit at the cool table with the popular girl at school Miss Darnell!  I was so happy when Blogger introduced the 'jump to comment' button because my poor scrolling finger would get so tired traveling to the bottom--LOL

Darnell is always there to leave sweet and thoughtful comments on everyone's blogs and she has so often been there for me off camera to check in and see how I am doing and to let me know that if I ever need anything to let her know.  She is a rare gem who always has a laugh for us on her blog and I am so truly thankful to be able to call you--friend!

Bev and Ardyth organized a birthday blog hop for Darnell and Bev is hosting the party HERE and Ardyth is hosting the link up HERE which is staying open for two weeks!  Now since Bev more than covered the cakes for Darnell, I am setting out a tray of Birthday Cake Martini's!  Enjoy your blog hop Darnell and all of the love that is being sent your way!

I used inspiration from The Cutting Edge Challenge #1 for my card. I chose a die cut popsicle and large speech bubble inspired by the large star and sentiment die cuts from the inspiration photo. I also used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #82 when creating Darnell's card.

LOVE your Birthday Cake Martini's, too...I'm sure if she could make it happen, Darnell would be sitting right next to you enjoying one! Such a lovely and thoughtful way to wish her a Happy Birthday!
