Her talents are many, and unending- and they all begin with laughter! She is known as the inventor of the Poor Girl's Copics (Sharpies) and is also the writer of the Evil Mommy blog...yes, this is the one we honor this day! Using all her powers of tackiness, her own words, not mine....this QFTD has the most incredible sense of dark humor. (i.e. “All Natural Bee Enhancements”, “It's not a toomah”, Writing someone's name.....) And, this Queen for the Day has a heart for God as well, and that's about as well-rounded as a person can get.
I “met” Terri on her very first upload in 2008. Terri is of those friends that you feel you have known your entire life, as if we grew up together. Using this card as inspiration, I chose this image, and smiled to think Terri & I will be friends, until we reach this age. (and no, it's not next year...) The sentiment, well...that is all “us”! Brat you are dear to my heart, and you tickle my funny bone. See you on top of the Bus, latte and all! (((Hugs))) to you sweet Sistah Brat! Enjoy your reign. LYMIMIMIMI

Who wants normal? It is so boring and contrived! Pat this is so great - what a moving tribute to your long and deep friendship with Terri. Her sense of humor is one of the best anywhere and she does have a wonderful heart. This card captures it all. Brings a tear to my eye..sniff... sniff... sniff...those darn hormones!!! Did we ever decide if I could still blame things on hormones if I had a hysterectomy??? Hugz!!!!!!!

I knew Brat's avatar and photos were from long, long ago in a land far, far away! I'm glad to finally know the truth and it took you to finally spill the beans Ms. Pat Smethers. But, ya did it in such a classy way, that I kinda like the way Brat has aged. Your card is hilarious as well as divine as always Pat. I'm so glad you two have met. Brat has such a witty humor and I absolutely adore it and her!! Hugs to a great card and tribute to Queen Brat!!!

I know, I barely made it here before Terri vacated her throne, but I have been playing catchup all week!! Love the humorous remark that this is Terri posing for your card though I really think the picture was "altered" to show her in about 20 years or so -
All the details in your card are remarkable - the 'rose-colored' glasses , the pearls, her hat all decked out in a gorgeous tulle bow with some of it straying over to the flowers - what a perfect image to honor Brat with! She even looks like she is headed for church and that is such a beautiful part of our sister - her love for the Father - and you have captured it all - bless your heart!
I would be remiss if I did not FINALLY show up here to comment - I 'forgot' that I saw it while in VA but could not comment, due to their computer situation! Sorry for the the tardiness, Sistah!
