YEE HAW!! Its a Birthday Blog Hop!

For my most wonderful blogging friend, ELISE, of Mamacow Creations blogging fame!!   I "met" Elise a little over two years ago, not long after she had started her blog.  She had entered the most FANTASTIC card I had ever seen in a CPS weekly challenge and she won!!  I was completely fascinated by her card and well her crazy, zany blog posting style.  At the time I didn't have a blog and because of that I couldn't leave her a comment.... so I went out on a limb and I emailed her to tell her how much I loved her card and could she please, please please change the settings on her comments section so I could start leaving her some love.  From that a great friendship was born.   And so today, along with all the fabby gals from JUGs and many other gals who have come to know Elise, I am celebrating her day!   (I used the current Card Patterns sketch for my card)



Happy, happy birthday Elise!!  I hope you have the most wonderful day my friend because you totally deserve it.   Below is the list (with links) of everyone participating in the hop.   I hope you will take the time to do the hop and to wish Elise a happy birthday!

A more fitting cowgirl image I could not imagine! This card has Elise written all over it! She is going to treasure this as she has your friendship since that fateful day a couple of years ago. I love how blogland brings great people together.

I don't know if I have EVER cried so much on my birthday!?! {Happy TEARS, of course!} But golly, golly, golly GOSH! This is the MOST wonderful start, to the "middle" of my life, imaginable! FIRST {or second, or third - I don't EVEN know what my own name is right about now!} .... I just have to say, THIS is one of my most FAVORITE Rosie cards - EVER! OMG! Not ONLY because, it's all westerned up {FLAWLESSLY!} but just because I positively LOVE your STUNNING details, composition and GORGEOUS craftsWOmanship - YoddleLEIheee whoooo! Western REALLY does, suit you! But THIS could be in pastels, and I'd love it JUST as much! Okay, well, maybe THIS, just a bit more, because of the whole b-day surprise aspect.... WELL, you know WHAT I mean! I'm POSITIVELY thrilled out of my wit! Suddenly, the "second half" {!} is brighter THAN ever! I'm SO grateful for you, Rosie! I'm tickled that you shared the lovely story of "us" from the beginning! I wonder how many beautiful friendships and connections have grown from this lovely, crafty place....? Either way, I count you on my list of most AMAZING and wonderfully crafty/love-filled, friendship blessings EACH and every day! I love you, dear Rosebud! THANKS, soooooo much, for playing along with this WONDERFUL blog hop! I LOVE IT! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, my dear one! xoxoxoxo!
