Happy 29th!!

If you're looking for my Waltzingmouse Sketch here or just scroll down!

Today is a special friend's very special day...
Joyce (Cards-by-the-Sea) is turning 29...
*giggle* is possible that she may have actually seen this age a couple of times already...
but it makes today no less special...
so some friends are all gathered to wish her the greatest of days...

Here is my card I made just for her...
which I know she's seeing here first because well...
par for me...
I'm late!!
I really hope the mailman delivers it today though...

When I saw this card from Amy (Stamp'n'Paradise) during a Market Street release...
I just loved it...
I died...
so I "borrowed" her idea of trying to recreate a little subway art using Waltzingmouse Back in the Saddle

Here's a list of everyone here to wish Joyce a Happy, Happy Day...

And if you've never visited her at her blog...
take a moment and pop over to wish her huge happiness on her special day!
She is just such a treasured friend...
so friendly and sweet...
always there with an encouraging word...
so positive and energetic...
a creative soul...
we're all so lucky to call her our friend!

Edit: 5-5-12  
Because I'm me...
and I also had a really busy day yesterday...
ok...a really busy week and I'm behind about 5000 posts on my blog reader...
I just realized this also fits the CAS-UAL Fridays challenge for this week...

A challenge blog I don't get to participate in as much as I would like...
Summer break is almost here so that also means I get more hours in each day...
Before you came along I never even attempted CAS...
so thank you for all the inspiration!

The Details:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Back In the Saddle
Cardstock: PTI Rustic White, Raspberry Fizz
Misc: mailing twine, lace (Thank You , Sharron! ), flower

  18. Hi there! Love the whole idea of this blog hop for Joyce's birthday. Your card is is SO cute! The touch of lace and the flower with a western theme makes me think of Gunsmoke and Ms Kitty and the "dance hall girls" wearing garters! In case you don't know what I'm talking about, Joyce does. It's a 60's thing :)

  19. What a great cas design Renee! love the touch of flower and lace on the side!

    I love your card and the way you have used the sentiments to make a lovely background-perfect for a girl who is from the way out west!
