Wishing You a ~ Happy Birthday!

I know a special little one
 (and I mean little!)
with a birthday approaching.
Can't tell you who.
She never really comes out and says "Thank you!"
But her actions are louder than words -
and know she appreciates all of her gifts!

There is a clue in this card as to who it is -
Can you guess?
...and of course I made another envelope,
this time lined flourished stamped with the flap embossed.
...and a shout out -
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR ........!

The following challenges have been very inspiring for the creativity on this card.
Also, I used a new SU! Hostess Stamp Set, Summer Afternoon

Anything Goes Challenge - Polka dot with birthday wishes

The Play Date Cafe - colors, cotton candy, ruby, citrus, dusk
Totally Stampalicious - red, white and ??? (blue!)

ABC Challenge - surprise! show us your creativity
Creative Card Crew - Easy as 1 (image), 2 (designer paper), 3 (pearls, ribbon, twine)
Stamping 411 - sketch

Thanks for stopping by.
And - whoever it was,
thanks for sending the rain!
And our trees thank you too!


Have you figured out who the card is for?

Check the comments, I bet someone knows!   ;)

I KNOW, I KNOW. Her name starts with M and rhymes with...hum...can't think of anything that rhymes (darn Hawaiian names!). It's your grandpuppy, MALIE! She never thanks me either but I get such a kick out of her antics that I forgive her. If she could speak she would say, "excellent coloring, layout and embellishments" and that she can't wait to get it (hint, hint)! :0) Great job, mother dear, and since it's so hot this coming week, I expect to see a lot more creations!
Aloha, KL and Malie

Yippee! Kim Mc is the winner! The Happy Birthday wishes are for my cute little Gran'Puppy Malie! (That would be the doggy in the wagon) And you're right Kim - the only problem now is for me getting it in the mail...
