Happy Birthday Suzanne!

Happy Birthday Suzanne!  

 Suzanne's, Design Team at  Color Me Creative  wanted to show her how much we enjoy, appreciate and love her by hopping along to share a little birthday fun and creativity with her.  Join us in wishing her that the next year is filled with even more memories and love than anyone could ever hope for!  

The design team went with a "Teal/Aqua" theme today.  Suzanne had mentioned her desire to "look like a mermaid"... LOL... so heck, we'll play along.  (Old age is old age, peeps... just smile and say... "that's nice, honey." LOL)

This is my card I created for you Suzanne!   
Yes!   To me you are the Woman of the Year!  
And ........ yes.... you are a mermaid!  LOL

We wanted to make sure our cards coordinated with the color "teal" 
so I chose to use this adorable mermaid from Make it Crafty called Cordelia the Mermaid.  !

My special message to Suzanne
I hope you know how special you are to me Suzanne!   Through you I discovered the wonderful world of Copic markers but  more importantly.... , I met you and am so proud to consider you my friend.
