Happy Birthday Geri!!!!

Today brings a birthday. A very special birthday...Geri Greening of Manitoba Stamper is celebrating today! Woohoo! Don't you just love birthdays?! Don't you just love it when special friends have birthdays?!! Let's PARTY!!!  (Okay, okay, so "Today" was Monday. I know....I'm late, or is it that I'm just extending the celebration?!  Yeah, I like that excuse much better....)

Setting the stage for the party with a few decorations









A few refreshments... (mmmm...!)












Curling cupcakes, and a celebratory cake too...



And of course a few little presents (just as soon as I win the lottery....)

Cupped Hands garden sculpture. Make your own by filling a pair of gardening gloves with toufa and wrap them around an appropriate sized clay pot and allow to set. Cut and peel the gloves off
#2014WinterOlympics Silver Charm. Olympic Curling. Sport played on a rectangular sheet of prepared ice by two teams of four players each. Using heavy polished granite stones which they slide down the ice towards a target area called the house. Style # 0628 See more silver charms at http://www.charmnjewelry.com/sterling-silver-charms.htm
Used Curling Stone



(Sorry...issues with placements here...still figuring out how this new computer works. Bear with me. {Arrrgggggghhhhh}) And I'm late. Really, really late. I think I'll blame the company we had for over a week, and then DH getting sick the day they left. My heart was in the right place, however. Card you ask?? But of course. It's a CASE of one of Geri's, though I'll admit that hers is way better. (Colors are much nicer irl, too.) Still, I know she'll appreciate my efforts...right? Geri?....Geri?....

So here's her card:



And my little tribute:


With that, we've come to the end of the "party" part of the post. Now for a special wish or two. Miss Geri, may your summer be long, your winter be short. Let the fish swim, the flowers bloom, and the skies be ever blue for you. Here's hoping your birthday is as wonderful as you are, and all your wishes come true. Birthday cheers to one of the most kind, sweet, funny, and lovable people in the whole wide world. xoxo

I tell you Miss Bev....you are the best party planner I know! You always seem to spare no expense and pull out all the stops!!! Nothing is too good for Geri, just like you fabulous and sweet card. You are so clever to CASE one of her cards too. So so sweet. Miss you lots!

Geri said...

Dearest friend...you made my day!

Once again, you have outdone yourself as party planner extraordinaire! The venues were delightfully decorated, the food was delicious, the drinks were yummy, the sweets were delectable, the yard ornaments made me drool (I want/need the three round planters in my front yard) and the curling rock cupcakes ROCK.

But your tag card steals the show! I had forgotten all about the tag card that I made...it was ages ago! It warms my heart to know that you remembered it and did a bang-up job CAS-ing it!

Dear friend, your kind words made my heart smile the biggest it has ever smiled (except when I got to meet you IRL). Thanks for the fabulous party Bev and for being my BFF. Miss you tons :)

PS...the flowers are finally starting to bloom, the skies have been mostly blue, and the fishies are happy to be swimming laps in the pond!

MWAH x a kazillion billion! Thanks again

So how badly do you think I want a tray of those yummy looking jellies with the blackberry spear? I know they'd be okay on my 'diet' - at least a bit better than the Bud you made me have! Best party, and card, I've had the pleasure of viewing today, Bev!!

I shouldn't look at posts like this so close to dinner time. My mouth is watering over those delicious looking appetizers. Your CASE of Geri's card is spot on, Bev, and that makes her birthday card all the more special.
