Our pal Darnell is sweet, funny, talented, creative, smart, artistic, awesome AND she has a wee rodent living in her head! How cool is that? I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say that visiting her blog is always the highlight of my day! I can't imagine when she finds time to sleep as she visits so many people daily and always leaves sincere, sweet words of encouragement!
I'm not quite sure how I happened upon Darnell's blog but what I do remember is spending the entire evening reading every single post...which had me laughing out loud (the cats thought I was nuts). I also filled up an entire folder of her cards that I wanted to CASE!
AND...I also happened to notice THE PLAYHOUSE during my visit!
Wow...a big girl's dream dollhouse full of fun crafting stuff instead of Barbie doll clothes! Who wouldn't want to hang out in this sweet crafting shack? Although, it would be pretty darn chilly here in Manitoba when the temps plummet to -50C!
Speaking of friends, the wonderful Ardyth of Maskerade, is having a linky party on her blog, so head on over and link up your card for Darnell! And, another sweet friend Bev from Happy Dance has put together a party that would make Martha Stewart swoon with envy!
At this point in my post (now that you've spotted the card) you'll be thinking "why is Geri making Darnell a 'Happy New Home' card? Silly gooses....it's a Playhouse birthday card! Modified a bit, but still a playhouse!
I even snapped the photograph outside - just like the real Playhouse!
Here is the little ditty inside the card:
Once upon a time
in a land quite far from here
A lady who loved crafting
Had no place to lay her gear
Her Mister is a kind soul
Who knows how to hammer and saw
So he crafted up a wee spot
that had Darnell in awe
The Playhouse as we know it
is a fun place to be
But it's the person that crafts inside it
that's so special to you & me!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DARNELL!
