Happy Birthday Shelley!!!!

SO!! Today is one of the greatest days of the year! Why you ask? isn't it just another Thursday? nope, it's not! It's my BBFF (Bestest Best Friend Forevah!)'s birthday!! And I've tried to make a card she'll LOVE!! I stress myself out every year with HER card (ok....or for the past few years anyhow, since I've started this silly obsession of mine), last years card had moving parts and REAL Starbucks coffee involved...and I said to myself... *How will I top this??* And I honestly dont know that I could.... but that being said, Im sure she'll like this one. Shell and I both LOVE coffee....and LOVE House Mouse Stamps, and well stamps in general.... but that's another topic. HERE is her birthday card.....
So here are some happy mice...who may have had some EXTRA coffee to celebrate the special day!  I've 3D'd them and used my Copic Airbrush to colour the background in. I've even used some REAL coffee beans for embellishments! (had to get the starbucks on there somewhere! LOL) That sentiment is from a MFT set I have. On the inside I've used some sentiments from a Skipping Stones Coffee Set I have. (uh....ya I have a lot of Coffee-related stamps!!)
 
Now!! I'm entering this into 2 challenges, over at House Mouse and Friends they're challengeing you to emboss on your card which I did on the front of this, and over at Simon Says Challenge, the challenge is Animal Antics! LOL Which is fairly explanatory I'd say! :o)

I hope you have a fantastic day my sweet friend! I miss you and hope we can have a drink SOON to celebrate! hopefully......you will get a surprise sometime soon today. :o)

Love you like a sister!!!
Cheri
