Whoo hoo!!! This has been some kind of day! There was a big parade in your honor with Marching Bands and 42,000 floats, an ice cream social with my favorite, peach, and 42,000 screaming fans all lined up just to get one little look at the QUEEN. Well, my little town hasn't been this worked up since the Beatles were on Ed Sullivan. Congratultions to our Queen Cindy! You are mine and Houston's hero! Every Tuesday Houston can't wait for you to tell him "Hi" on your comment you leave on our card. As you can tell, this is an actual picture of Houston. He wanted to be on your card. When I saw your card, Inspired by a Beauty, I knew that was the one I would try and case. Now I did say try as mine doesn't come close to yours.
Again, Congratulations!!! You are one SPECIAL person!

Yes, Cindy is definitely a special person but this is a really special card as well. I love the photo and the darker bg. It's definitely a winner. Wow, I never heard about your town getting to worked up over anyone after the Beatles were on Ed Sullivan. Oh boy, I think you either read about that somewhere or you were one of those 16 million teen girls watching that show at 8 pm on Sunday night. I know I saw it from my potty chair in the living room.

OMG! Houston on a card? It doesn't get any better than this! How appropriate that you made a card on this day with Houston! Giggle! I may be the Queen today but I gotta tell you Houston is the regal looking one! Just look at that posture!
Shh....dont tell anyone, but I remember when the Beatles were on Ed Sullivan! Yikes!!! That is a scarey thought! Tee hee! Your card is amazing....its beautifully done with Houston as the star! Stop the parade! I wanna ride Houston! I am the Queen right? So doesn't the Queen get what she wants? I wanna ride Houston! Look at us, we are looking good! Tee hee!
