Happy Birthday Ardyth!!!!!

Today is a very, very, VERY special friend's birthday. And if you haven't read the title of this post and haven't seen just whose birthday it is, I'll tell you here: it's Miss Ardyth of Maskerade fame. She is the absolute queen of wonderfully CAS, superbly graphic, and terrifically eye-pleasing cards, but you already knew that, didn't you?! She is an amazing card maker, a sweet, sweet person too. True story! So hop on her link, and head on over to Maskerade and give her a happy birthday shout out!

Just a little party today - a Springtimey cake party in a lovely setting. And naturally there will be tables just like this for all of us! Mmmmm...pretty (but not too froo-froo!). Can you just imagine a huge garden like this filled with several hundreds of tables and here we are, celebrating, laughing, talking, and sharing this special day with Ardyth?! Oh let's!!! And I think we'll have a couple of different kinds of cakes too --- one at each table. Yum! (Also not too froo-froo!)

Clean and simple. Just the way Miss Ardyth would like it! (not going to list the "ingredients" here, but if you want the deets, just leave me a comment, and I'll get them to you...)

Dear Sweet Friend, I hope your birthday is as lovely as you are. May you be blessed with all wonderful things today and every day. You are a treasure, and I'm so happy to call you 'friend.'  Have a wonderful birthday! You are truly special.

(I'm also going to pop this into Freshly Made Sketches. It's pretty darn awesome, and a wonderful source of inspiration!)

Ahhhh, my dear friend, you've celebrated our dear friend's birthday in most exquisite Ardythesque style! The venue, the cakes (polkie-dot and balloon delights!) are marvelous: Fresh and fabulous as is Ardyth's style! And your card...swooning-inducing! You've captured her clean, simple style in the most stunning fashion. Gorgeous! Once again, you've showcased what an incredibly amazing friend you are! Ardyth is so fortunate to have you in her life...and so are we! You know: all you posts just revs up my 'want to meet you in real life' wish even more! One of these days...

So sorry to be late to Ardyth's party...not sure how this happened but I did want to pop in to tell you what a sweet card you made. Just love that set and after seeing this I now need the matching dies.
