I made this card for a very special friend … someone who needs no introduction because you already know her as a warm, generous, enthusiastic, hilarious, clever, hammy-loving ultra talented card maker. Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday Darnell … may your day be filled to the brim with joy and love … and may your year ahead be one of laughter, delight and fun!
The French Dawn Chorus (their professional name!) made a special trip to sing for you, Darnell … you saw the quartet over at your challenge … well, here’s the full choir! Here, they’re just tuning up and recovering their equilibrium (in a very demeure and winged fashion) after scaling Mount NBUS, newly named highest mountain in California. The clear air is excellent for their voices and of course, the lack of anything quite as high for miles around means that their melodious music carries beautifully. So, my lovely friend, I hope you’ll be able to hear them as they join together to sing you their happy birthday song (same tune as the English version) …
Joyeux anniversaire, heureux anniversaire,
Tous nos voeux sont sinceres, pour ton anniversaire.
Tes amis aujourdhui, se sont tous reunis,
Ton bonheur on l’espere, pour ton anniversaire!
I translated the birds’ greeting on your card as these sweet oiseaux only sing in French! Just so you know, whilst they made the trip to Mount NBUS, it means they’re not with you in person today … but they will be, their little wings are flapping as we speak!
There are two celebrations going on for Darnell … and you’re all invited to both of them. Bev has thrown open the doors at Happy Dance for a mega party that you really won’t want to miss … and Ardyth has Mr Linky making a special appearance at Maskerade to collect up all your birthday greetings. So when you’ve made your card, you can link it up there and Darnell will be greeted with a sea of love when she sees them all! If, however, you’re an alien who’s only recently arrived on earth and therefore you don’t know Darnell … you’ll want to pay her a visit before you go home again. It’ll be sooooo worth your while … and you can share the experience with your fellow aliens on your return!
Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
