Happy Birthday Stacey!

 Today is my sister in law's 42nd birthday.  She's a wonderful SIL and the BESTEST mother ever!  Talk about being prepared....  this gal has it ALL!  I swear she comes prepared for everything!  Need a Bandaid, she's got it!  Need a safety pin, she's got it!  Need a cold drink or snack, she's got that too! Seriously, I think she carries a 7-11 in that purse of hers!  LOL! My niece and nephew are two of the greatest kids ever... and it's because they have such a GREAT mom!  Oh yeah, and they've got my brother too!  Bwah-ha-ha-ha!  Just kidding!  My brother knows I wuv him bunches!  Anywho, Stacey is a DIEHARD coffee drinker (like me!) so when I saw this phrase on Pinterest, I knew I HAD to use it for her card.  I have to tell you this little story about Stacey.  While on a family camping trip, my mom made coffee for everyone during breakfast.  Of course we all drank a few cups and went about our day biking, hiking, etc.  Around noon, Stacey said, "I'm not feeling well, I think I'll go lie down." After a few hours she came out of the tent and said, "I have the worst headache EVER!"  So she took some Tylenol and was feeling better by the evening.  Later that evening, as we're sitting around the campfire, mom makes some more coffee for everyone but this time Stacey happens to be watching her and all of a sudden Stacey shouts, "DECAFFEINATED??  Are you kidding me?  No wonder I'm feeling so bad!"  LOL!  Of course my mom was like, what's wrong with decaffeinated?  Like you have to ask!  OMG!  So that's one of our many funny camping stories and now my mom is banned from making coffee for everyone unless she uses "LEADED" as my brother likes to call it!  

I made this card using "Morning Margaret - Have a nice day!" from Bugaboo Stamps.   OMG, isn't she a hoot!  You hens know how much I love funny people images, so Margaret is right up my alley.  Margaret, Mildred and Stella are my favs!  I printed the image onto some Classic Crest CS and colored her with my Copics.  I printed the sentiment and then stitched around the edges of each panel.  I added a little shading to the edges with some distress ink and tied a bubbly bow with this sheer dotted ribbon to finish it off.  That's it for today.  I hope you hens have a good Monday!

  1. I am sure your sister in law does not have gorgeous cards like this though!
    Love it!!

  2. That sentiment is a scream. Great card!

  3. Thanks for the Monday morning smile!! Love this card and your sense of humour.

  4. Your card is adorable as is the sentiment. I am not a coffee drinker, but the rest of my family are. That is the first thing my daughter heads for when she wakes up, so I understand your SIL's comment. :)
    Have a great week.

  5. This is precious! I ONLY drink the UNleaded or else I get those headaches too!!

  6. I LOVE IT !!! Sis and I are both coffee hounds and heading out on a ccamping trip (Just the two of use and our COFFEE.) LOL


I just love hearing from da hens!! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me. Cluckity-cluck!
