Happy Birthday Monica!!!!

Today is the birthday of my Hambo boss and great online friend, Monica! I'm celebrating, as well as some of my fellow design team gals - past, present and guest! I hope you have a wonderful day, Monica, and this starts your morning off with a little smile. You're one of the nicest and funniest people I've never met, and I'm so glad I've had the chance to get to know you a little better this year!! And I wanted to make a Johnny Depp card for you to celebrate, but I'm still waiting for Timbo to add a Johnny stamp to the Hambo lineup! *wink* So instead, I busted out my favorite Hambo stamp, my little dancing elephant! I have yet to color him a normal gray - today he's red and loving it!! And he brought some sparkley balloons to the party! I had to be sure Monica knew just who this card was from, so of course I added scallops and polka dots (because I'm obviously the only person in the stamping/blogging world who loves those things, LOL!). So is it bad form to have Monica's birthday card fulfill a design team obligation?? ;-)

Have a GREAT day today Monica, I hope you and the family do something fun to celebrate! Ok everyone, go and check out what the other girls cooked up: Asela, Colleen, Isabelle, Jane, Judy, MacKenzie and Taylor! And be sure to visit Monica's blog and wish her a happy birthday as well! (or heck, make a birthday card for her and link it up!!) *wink* Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Starts my day off with a little smile? How about a BIG goofy grin! Seriously, I can't stop smiling, as I didn't expect anyone to remember my birthday!
