You Can Join The Birthday Party, Too...

Somebunny special is having a Birthday this weekend!
To celebrate, my friend, Jillayne of A Fine Seam
and
I
are hosting a special online, virtual Birthday party!
There is nothing quite like the friendships that are developed in our blogging community. I have found women with whom I know I will share lifelong friendships, whether or not we ever meet in person. Then, there are the women whom I have already met in person.

Our birthday celebrity is just one of those people. I instantly connected with her online, and then was blessed to meet her in person last fall.
She's the petite, sweet, bunny-loving, talented
Shell May of The Raspberry Rabbits!
If you already know her, then you love her and will want to wish her the Best Birthday ever. Her birthday is Sunday, March 27th, and we hope you'll all want to add your special wishes to the party.

Jillayne and I are hosting a link-up party so that everyone can send Birthday wishes to Shell. To participate, Jillayne and I have only asked that you use a rabbit image in your post. It can be ceramic, needlework, sewn, painted, photographed, anything...you can choose. The bunny will be your virtual Birthday gift to Shell. (Of course, you're welcome to send actual gifts to her - and if that is your desire, contact me privately and I'll make arrangements to get your gifts to her.) You'll be able to add your Birthday wishes blog post to this party until midnight Sunday.

She reads my blog every day, so the cat's out of the bag now. As I've already exposed Jillayne's and my plot, this will be the location for the linky party.

Shell, my dear friend. I wish you a wonderful Birthday, filled with all the wonderful things you love. I wish I could knock on your door this weekend to surprise you in person, but know that I'll see you again soon enough.

Love and Best Wishes from me, Kes and Fezzik. I hope you have fun visiting all the linked blogs to see all the affection and virtual gifts awaiting you.


Hugs and smooches,

PS. This post will remain up all weekend so that other bloggers can join the party. I'll be back with a new post on Monday.

PLEASE READ MY REMINDERS RIGHT BELOW THIS POST...MONDAY IS MEMORY LANE MONDAY so you can post and join the Memory Lane Party.

Good Morning, Donna,
I must send Bunny Birthday wishes through you...our house is chaos, due to our kitchen make-over project...so no bunnies on display here this weekend.

I've enjoyed visiting the links. Thanks for hosting. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. ~Natalie
