Happy Birthday Ardyth!!!

Ardyth. You all know her. You all know her wonderfully and beautifully CAS cards. And actually having met her IN PERSON, I can tell you she is a genuine sweetheart. Well, today is Ardyth's birthday! So in her honor, I'm throwing a little party. You're all welcome to join in the fun, have a few treats, and join with me in wishing her the happiest birthday ever! She just rocks, doesn't she?!!! Oh yeah....

Well, lets get this party started!

A Venue. It has to be super cool, and not too fussy. Lots of white space....This looks just about right!

Modern Mobiles:  If you prefer "clean and modern" over "frilly and cute," craft these colorful mobiles -- which can double as nursery decorations -- using bold and simple shapes. Cut circles in varying sizes from art-quality construction paper (or C2 Paint's oversized paint chips) and hang them from embroidery hoops using waxed twine.

Or maybe some tables decorated like this; but we'll need an auditorium to hold us all!

simple & pretty

Oh and drinks and treats! Don't these just look yummy?!!

And time would stand still while we're all together celebrating Ardyth's birthday. That way, we can spend days if we need to wishing her happy birthday, and visiting with each other! So pop on over to Ardyth's blog, and wish her a happy birthday. Oh! I almost forgot (silly me...). It wouldn't be a birthday celebration in our world without a card. I CASED one of her cards in tribute to my dear friend.

And so here's to you my dear friend!

My dear, sweet friend. Hope your birthday is everything you want it to be. It's wonderful to know you. I've been blessed with your friendship, for which I am delighted! Your beautiful style has been such a positive influence on me, and for that matter, to all of us out here in the cardmaking blogworld. So, Miss Ardyth, birthday blessings, and may your entire year be filled with wonders. 

Go Forth and Party!!!

Oh goodness, Bev, you are the epitome of sweetheart, throwing yet another party for our fabulous crafty friend, Ardyth! Love the venue (I'll just grab my purse and be right over!), the decor, the treats (carb, gluten and calorie- free = right on) and of course, the highlight: your card! You've infused your style into an Ardyth-esque creation, with a result that is sheer stunning! Mega watt smile all over Ardyth's face when she sees this! Huge hugs to you, dear I REALLY want to head home and get my craft on so I can join in the party! Hugs~c

Thank you soooooo much! A lovely surprise to find all my friends wishing me a happy birthday! I'm just sorry I'm so late - I've spent the day at Kate's school and just managed to get home to my computer - what a treat!

Not only is your card beyond THE perfect CASE, but your post is amazing! You have such a sincere, eloquent flair when it comes to putting words to paper! I always read your posts over twice...marveling at your 'way with words'! Your message to Ardyth is the perfect example of this gift that you have been blessed with!

Awesome party - the food was soooo yummy (especially the tarts!)
