Happy Birthday Dear Friend!!!

Yup! It's another great day today.....my dear friend Chris's Birthday. Now....the bugger up and moved to Fort Nelson on me....so Im still alittle perturbed with her over that....but Im gonna get over it long enough to say
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR FRIEND!!!
Now....boy did I agonize over this card! LOL I didnt know WHAT image to use....she loves so many things. :) She is obsessive about the colour Blue first of all, and loves her tea, and cats, and teddy bears, and margarita's and sweet little blonde girls. :) So you can see my dilemma.... WHAT STAMP DO I USE??? Cause I have them all!!! I waiver-ed back and forth and forth and back again and then... finally I just decided to make the card I've been wanting to make since I won these images from Tickled Pink Stamps and well combine some of her above loves. I figure I've got the Blue covered....cats....tea.....and little blonde girls?? That's pretty good right?? LOL
Ya know...I used to struggle with the whole vintage thing...but I think I'm gettin the hang of it...specially when Im using Tickled Pink images anyhow....they just seem to NEED it. I had to cut poor Ivy's legs off cause well....there was no more room and I COULDNT cover up my favorite cat now could I??? Priorities people!! Now that's one of MY sentiments and I'll put er up in the shop for ya if you'd like it, at Graphicat Designs. I have distressed and crackled the heck out of this thing.....here's another shot.

Allright.....now I did also use the sketch over at Tickled Pink Challenges (honest, it's there...underneath all that stuff!!) So Im going to enter it over there too!

Now Chris....I hope you have a wonderful day! You KNOW if you were here I'd be meeting you at Starbucks to surprise you with your card and presents.... and then taking you to sushi at lunch to celebrate...and if you were still where you SHOULD be living in the blue house NEXT to me, we'd be having a margarita after work!!!!!! Bugger! So....this morning Im gonna drink my Starbucks at home, while I call you to tell you I love you and Happy Birthday, but it just wont be the same, so I may have to drink that Margarita before NOON.... and if I end up with a drinking problem it will be ALL YOUR FAULT!
Happy Birthday girl!

Im also entering this over at The Altered Alice.... what a fabulous challenge blog based around Alice in Wonderland!!!! I'll be stalking and playing along there whenever I can!

I originally came over to tell you that I just love, love your card. If Chris doesnt, then she's a mad woman (like Hatter) lol. But now I have to say, Awwwww Im sorry to hear that your special moved away. So because of that, you are allowed to have margaritas at noon. Plus like Chris said its Happy Hour somewhere :)
Ps. Make sure you enter this into the Altered Alice challenge. We are celebrating the Mad Hatter with a special Twisted Tea Party this month.

What a great card for our tea party at the Altered Alice challenge (and for a birthday card) I love how you combined all the facets of Alice together. I love the Mad Hatter. I haven't seen him before. I may have to invite him to my tea party.
