Happy Birthday, Suzanne Dean!!!

The Color Me Creative Design Team has a secret!!!  Today we are hopping along to wish our fearless leader, Suzanne Dean, a VERY happy birthday!!!  Suzanne is the owner/creator of the Color Me Creative site and, as many of you know, teaches her Copic classes online and on the road!  She is one busy momma and we thought we'd take time to wish her a happy day and hope she gets to sit with her Cherry Coke and donuts (ya, a fav combination of hers!) and relax a bit today and enjoy the hop!

Each of us decided it would be fun to remember Suzanne today in "typical Suzanne" style!  Our creations will either help remember a "funny travel moment" with Suzanne or... share a secret about Suzanne.  Ha!!!  Bet she didn't see this coming!!! LOL

Here is what I created today....


My card started with Pure Luxury Black Onyx card stock.  I layered on some Red Hot and more Black Onyx before adding some DP from the Gina K Designs Patterned Paper Pack, "Poppy Prints".  I added some pieces of Black Onyx with DP from that same paper pack and also from the "Berries & Vines" set as well.  My image is from Saturated Canary, "Zorana, a Dancing Gypsie".  I colored her with my Copic markers and added a few Prima flowers on the side.  



My favorite thing about Suzanne is how she leads this "self-called" gypsie lifestyle.  She is on the move more than anyone I know.  I just wish I could join her!!! *hint hint*  Hee  But I have to admit, another reason I chose this image was because well... if you knew Suzanne well enough, you'd know she's always saying... "I need pot!" LOL  Of course, she DOESN'T use pot, but I find it funny whenever she belts that out.  And this gal reminds me of one of those "hippie" types as well.

In fact, while we were in California this past January, she and I had gone to a nearby little convenience store to purchase God knows what... and when we were heading back to our room upon entering the lobby I saw a gentleman get into the elevator.  I ran to grab the door so we didn't have to wait... Suzanne in tow!  As I got on I made the comment... "Whoa... just in time.  I looked at the gentleman and said... "That's how I run to catch ALL my men!"  Suzanne about lost it!!! She doubled over laughing and creeping into the corner of the elevator.  At that point I looked at the gentleman who said not a word... and said.. "Ohhh don't worry about her... she'll be ok once the pot wears off!" LOL  THEN I thought Suzanne was gonna pee her pants!! LOL

As we got to the room I took out my room card and was trying to put it in the slot as she stood there bent over, still laughing, then beginning to laugh a bit harder as I could NOT get that card in!!  I screamed, "I can't get it in!!!!... along with... "That's what he.." well.. never mind. LOL  At that point I turned and a gentleman across the building was standing on the balcony looking at us and visibly slowed down to watch.  Suzanne on on the ground by the door at that point nearly in tears from laughing.  Of course our roommate, Marti, had no intention, apparently, of coming to help us IN.. but we muddled through and got there.  As Suzanne ran to the bathroom!  Ya... good times were had by all! LOL  

I love you Suzanne.. 'cause you let me tell people you smoke pot and then almost wet yourself because I DO tell them!!! LOL  I hope your birthday is fabulous and special... just like you are to me!  *BIG HUGS* GF!!!

Now hop on over to the rest of the DT's sites to see what they are sharing about Suzanne.  ;-)



Hope you enjoy your day, Suzanne, and remember... you're not getting older... you're getting ..... FUNN(I)ER!!! Ha!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!  *HUGS*

I hope Suzanne had a fun birthday. Happy late Birthday, Suzanne. What an adorable card. I was in awe of your use of designs on the dress. It really is a special card, and having read Suzanne's profile, talking of being like a "gypsy", so appropriate for her birthday. Nicely done.
