Buzzing ... Literally!

When you get to a certain time of life ... you are kind of torn! Oh yes people ... torn between celebrating your birthday and getting loads of presents ... or ... just keeping it to yourself and hoping no one notices you are rapidly creeping up on that 50 marker!
Torn as I am ... I do like to let everyone ... and ... erm ... their dog ... know it's my birthday ... and boy what an amazing day it was! So a big THANK YOU from me ... my smart phone buzzed all day ... literally all day Friday ... it hardly stopped with Birthday wishes ... with Facebook and Twitter greetings ... over 100 times in total ... it was wonderful!
In addition to that I got lots of yummy presents ... a hooooge chocolate cake and I was thoroughly spoilt into the bargain ... so what if everyone knows I am a year older ... it was definitely worth it!
Even the sun shone ... which is quite unique in itself for March ... for the last two years it has snowed ... not this year ... oh no ... John and I went walking in the local woods with the dog in T-Shirts ... Flip Flops ... the works! I think I  may even have got a bit of a tan!
Still ... that is enough about me ... How are you? It has been a while! Nearly a week since my last post and here we are on Monday ... time for a new theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show! This week we want to see your tags! Talking of tags ... Lord Tim's Creative Chemistry 101 is fabulous ... you can still sign up if you have n't already ... every day it just seems to get better and better ... and because Lord Tim ... the proffessor is doing it nearly live ... well ... it feels really interactive and students get lifetime access to the class ... I mean lifetime access ... does life get any better?
I digress ... I made a chain of tags for the challenge ... Started with a background of Wild Honey Distress Stain ... bet that surprised you ... Huh? Then I used some Lord Tim of Holtz stamps to give the background depth ... you know Tim ... the man that can educate the world in the blink of an eye while discovering previously undiscovered Fossils in the Galapagos Islands with just a pair of Tonic Studio Scissors and a small strip of Tissue Tape.
The images on my tag chain are all Dylusions ... coloured in with Letraset Promarkers ... then some doodles ... all good fun and very relaxing!
If you fancy joining the team and I this week ... just pop here to see all the details ... who knows ... you could be the winner of the $50 Shopping Spree donated by the wonderful guys otherwise known as Simon Says Stamp!
I must away ... I just know as I type this on Sunday night I am really gonna miss that hour we lost last night with the British Summer time saving ... I am not much of a morning person at the best of times! How about you? Are you a morning person or a night owl! C'mon spill ... you know you want to!
Have a good week y'all!
Laters!

These are so bright and funky! Get away with you woman, you're just a slip of a lass (compared to me). Sadly I am neither a morning person NOR a night owl, but that's just what life has handed me. For a couple of hours a day I'm quite lively really!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LINDA!!!! Sounds like you had a fantastic day! The 50 marker....not a big deal. It's only a number...that I passed a few years ago. :)
Your chain of tags looks AMAZING! I LOVE the background color!! Wow...your really got a bright and vivid look out of the Wild Honey Distress Stain. Your Dylusions images are incredible!
