So can you believe my luck? I was just passing by the playhouse when I heard these funny noises coming from within. Turns out Ms. Darnell of DJKardkreations was inside having a nap. Plum tuckered out she was from all the hopping around she and hammy had to do during her smashing-success-of-a-NBUS-challenge last month.
Well, I posted myself in the hydrangea bushes next to the patio, fighting off Hitler to claim the best lookout spot, and waited with my camera to catch a shot of the birthday girl when she awoke to the wafting aromas of coffee and ice cream and birthday cake frosting. Or giggles from the grandtwinks. Or wet doggie kisses from the granddog. Or cuz hammy had to pee.
Are you ready? Here she is in the midst of her beautiful flower garden...
Ms. Darnell ...(don't those words automatically bring one huge smile to your face, BTW?)... it's your birthday and you deserve one ginormous party attended by a gazillion of your blogland friends. I hope you enjoy your day and your new year. And thank you so very much for bringing joy to our days. Big hugs to you my dear friend.
Now get hopping. There's a linky party over at Ardyth's place where you can virtually deliver your card to Darnell. Let's make her day as great as she makes ours! I'm not a wagering woman (considering the win of the guy who bet on Suarez biting another player in the World Cup, maybe I should be) but I bet this will be one of the biggest linky party's blogland's ever seen ;)
Oh, and speaking of incredible odds... linking up to the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge ;)
