DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT FOR MY BOSS, who, (ahem..) has a link to my gallery, just sayin'!)
Shirley, wannabcre8tive, Shirley Q, Shirtley, Bus Driver with the Most Shiny Halo.... Call her what you want, but this gal is my Bestie, (and one snappy dresser too, as you can see by this photo.) No one can get my funny bone like Shirl. And, although this card is a beauty, it is a riot at the same time, just like the crafter, so I had to case it first! This card is amazing in color and detail, and I kept Shirl's oval easel, and bling, and her humor. And to me, that is the best part! I am not kidding, no matter how low I get, (and she has stood by me in life's most tragic times), Shirley can make me laugh and feel good all over again! She is a blessing and I am ever thankful I met her here. She's “too nice”! (Got ya!) Lol!
I actually did buy a sheet of Oz paper, just for my boss, who loves Oz, but used a group photo from it with Dorothy, Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion for her “real” card, to be posted at a later date, but this here image was screamin' to be used as well! I giggled the entire time I made this, thinking of my visits to Shirley's home, and her visits here. Never a dull moment! Whether she's helping someone, which happens with frequency, or just sitting on the porch with a bag of straws, this gal can warm your heart and tickle your funny bone at the same time! Love you Shirley Q!!!
Thanks for looking!
Psst...don' worry 'bout the lil dog, Shirl protects them all, witch or not!

LOL!!! You got MY funny bone with your hilarious "Boss's Day" card!!! Love that paper with WWW (wicked witch of the west) and your color palette of green and black is perfect!!! Such a pretty card, right up until you see her face! LOL Good thing you put the disclaimer about this not being your boss, or you might be retiring a bit earlier than expected!
Fabulous Pat!!! Love all your sweet words about your bestie Shirley too!!!

Shirley's going to love your post and sweet words about her as much as your card, which is fun and fabulous. It's great that you and Shirley get to visit and have fun times. I can imagine it gets pretty wild when you two get together. LOL
