A Special Birthday Blog Hop

I am on vacation in HOT Scottsdale, Arizona and I had a few minutes to check out some of my favorite blogs.  I saw on Marybeth's blog that it is Darnell's birthday and a bog hop is going on!  Oh, how could I not wish this fabulous lady a very Happy Birthday?  Fortunately I have a few birthday cards on my One Drive, so I was able to access them.  This card I made just before leaving on my trip and I thought it was perfect for Darnell...a rose for a Rose of a Person!!  It is a PTI stamp... Block Botanicals...I colored it with copies and I actually cut out the flower and used dimensional to reattach it to the card.  Darnell, I wish you the most merriest of Birthday's and I just want you to know how special you are to me and I am sure many many more that read your blog or are the recipient of your kind and thoughtful comments.

So Happy Birthday, Dear Blog Friend!!

If you want to join in the fun and celebrate Darnell's birthday through this blog hop, you can go HERE to the Party Orangizer to link up.

                                   It is quite HOT here in Scottsdale Arizona.  We were here for a volleyball tournament for my two granddaughters... both daughters and their families came, so we had a house of 12 of us for part of the time!  Ellie's team took third in the 14 and under division.  Lily's team took 20th.  We had great fun watching them!
