a quick card, and Happy Birthday to me...

Hello, I am a "Longest Night Baby" for more than one reason...1.) the date of my birth, and  2.) when my mom went into labor, and 3.) the fact that it was 1960, and I was breech, so MOM had a really long night!
Today I am 25 with 25 years experience, and 1 extra year for good luck! LMAO!!

I am not going to put any hoop-di-do on my blog today, as tomorrow is the Mad Tea Party blog hop, and I will have a minor table setting for Tea and cake with hubby and I outside. I hope to have us both in some kind of hat. It is not really called a MAD-HATTER tea party, but I think it would add to the MADness.

I am in the middle of making a pennant banner for this little soiree, that will be given away to one of the tea party commentors. HOWEVER, I am giving away 1 extra secret prize to 5 of my true and long time followers. That means anyone that is a PUBLIC follower of my blog as of TODAY, will be eligible.
Stay tuned for tomorrow's post, it will have the info of the tea party, and a link to the list if you feel like hopping it is be hosting by "A FANCIFUL TWIST". Plus it will contain what is needed from you my true and long time followers to be in the running for one of the 5 secret prizes.

OK, now for some small art, a card. This card fulfills 2 challenges.
