Hokey Pokey Birthday!!

Hey there sweet friends!! It's time for another fun challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog! And this week's hostess is the very talented and sweet Miz Jasmina . . .  and she's chosen a color theme . . .

"Lilac & Lavender"

Oooooohhh . . . how delicious!! Now, I have to admit, when I was younger, purples were really not my faves . . . but now that I'm an old gramma, I definitely love me some purples . . . and lavenders and lilacs and violets!! So . . . what'cha think?
Surprise!! It's Maddie!! hehe! It's been a few weeks since I colored up a little Maddie image . . . and you KNOW how much I love little Maddie!! This adorable Sassy Cheryl image is called "The Jitterbug - Maddie" and is available HERE at Sassy Cheryl's online store! There's also a cute "Max" version of "The Jitterbug" . . . and he's available right HERE

Here's a close up of this dancin' cutie . . . 
I created this "Birthday" card for one of my oldest friends! Well, wait . . . it's not that she's really old (she's 3 weeks younger than I am!) . . .  it's just that we've been friends since our senior year in high school! We shared plenty of goofy experiences! In fact . . . I ended up marrying her former boyfriend! But that was long after they broke up, of course! After all, I'm no hussy! hehe! Here's a side view . . .

Love the aqua and lavender combination. The Hokey Pokey is what it is all about. Didn't you know? Is there something missing here. (wink, wink)
