Long May She Reign!!

As I was sitting having my morning cup of tea and having a quiet look at what had gone on in 'Cardville' while I slept - the phone rang and who should be on the other end, but my dear friend Peggy (aka Marilyn Preston on SCS) calling all the way from Canada.  What a lovely way to start the day!!

Even moreso because there is a fun game on SCS called 'Queen for the Day' and stampers who encourage other stampers with their comments and are very involved on SCS are being honoured - fittingly it is our very own Peggy this week - and I made this card in her honour...you can play along too just by casing Peggy and adding QFTD02 to KEYWORDS.

I used an image sent to me by the lovely Celisa on SCS - I saw one of her Emersons and commented on it, you know how much I LOVE these gals and Celisa offered to send me some more - and she did - I  will be amusing myself with them FOREVA!! Thank you Celisa, you blessed me!!

I have also used the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - the CAS sketch, I am so not a CAS person, although I love other peoples but I have to say these gal's with the 'atty-tude' just don't need too much more - now you may wonder if I am talking about the Emersons or the MMSC gals - LOL!  I won't even go THERE!! LOL!  Seriously girls, I am just joking!!  I did case this card of Peggy's for MMSC45 - I changed everything but the sketch, but hey, the thought was there! LOL!

So Peggy, this card is in your honour - it is so perfect that you are Queen for a Day on SCS, you are such a gorgeous gal and have befriended so many of us, bringing sunshine into our lives and lighting up our world with your comments and all the love you give in so many ways!  You have won your way into my home and are reffered to as 'Aunty Giggles', we all love you!  Long may you reign my dear friend and TWISTED SISTER!!!

I just have to add that HRH Peggy ended our call with 'you may bow now!!'  Oh Peggy - what can we say to that!!
