Happy Birthday, Darnell!

Today is the birthday of someone famous in the crafty parts of blogland for her wit, humor and genuine kindness. Who could be so well rounded, you ask?! It’s the one and only Darnell Knauss!  Seriously, if you haven’t visited her blog before, you must put it on your summer bucket list.  Period.  Ardyth over at MASKerade is having a birthday linky party for this special occasion, so you’ll have to play along if you didn’t already know the big secret!

Given her wonderful sense of humor, I thought Darnell might appreciate a little humor on her birthday card…

The inside says, “Happy 29th birthday.  Again!”  I’d never guess Darnell is anything more than 29!  She’s got plenty of mischief in her eyes and a wit that doesn’t quit!  If I’m half as lively when I’m 29 (again), I’ll be tickled pink!  Thank you, Darnell, for giving us something to laugh about on a regular basis!  Laughter is, after all, the best medicine!

Have a very Happy Birthday…and many, many more!

    You nailed me with this adorable floating party-animal penguin, Melissa! Along with LITS, this sediment is a favorite byline of mine and one of my favorite stamps! Not only are you never too old to do them, it's the actual DOING of goofy things that keep a person feeling 29 again and again. Knowing you, you'll be living those words, too! Thank you so much for your kind words and for participating in my surprise linky party! It means the world to me!!

    Happy 4th! Have a wonderful holiday weekend with that precious family of yours! Hugs, Darnell
