Happy Birthday Anita!


Today is NOT a very special day. FEBRUARY 18 was a very special day, but the 'owner' of that day kept it a secret from us and the day went by, unmarked by any blog hop or cards made or even any mention!

LIM 3rd Birthday, WPlus9 4th Birthday 1, OLS 2, SSSWIW 1

But we've tricked the trickster and Bev has organized a bunch of us to join in and wish our friend Anita (in France) a belated Happy Birthday! Darnell has posted a link-up so you can join in the fun too!

I cased one of Anita's cards, using a Papertrey coverplate, an Ink Essentials sentiment and a bit of bling!

Happy Belated Birthday, Anita! I hope you had a great day and that today will be another one!

Love those bright colours! A rainboweffect is one of my favorite ways to work with lots of colours, so I think this card is beautiful!

You and Anita made cards so similar that it's hard to tell which brilliant work of art was done by which talented card artist!! I think that is what you call CASEing perfection, Ardy!! Thank you for joining the surprise party!! Hugs, Darnell
