Birthday Banner (thanks Sammye Jo)

Hi y'all!  I'm so excited about this weekend!  I am hopefully winning some money at the casino, or relaxing with my buddies, or drinking a nice cocktail right now as you read this!  (Don't  you love the post later option!?!?!)  I wanted to post the birthday banner that I made for my was a total lift from one of the greatest crafters I've found.... Sammye Jo (I even love her name!) you can find her too at:
62Cards- Sweet Paper Treats (My Crafty Blog :)   Let me tell you, she's sweet as day and she is a true inspiration.  I truly get giddy when I see that she's posted something new.  She makes these great banners - check 'em out! She's awesome!!!  You should have seen me when she started following my blog!!  I was beside myself!  There are others that I love and let me tell you, I think all of you are a true inspiration!!!  I just need to make a point when I totally scraplift someone's idea...which is what I did here!
So I gave it a whirl too.  I think it turned out pretty cute!! 
I used the new smiley carty for the glass of beer in the middle.  Tee Hee.  I know it may be a little odd, but that is my besties alcohol of choice.  What can I say, she's a little weird - that's one of the MANY things I love about her!  Personally, I liked it when that's all I could afford, and then I didn't like it at all and now I'm back to occasionally enjoying it.  My drink of choice is weird to a lot of people too....I'm a whiskey gal.  Love my crown and diet!  :)  Don't think I won't be partaking in a little (or a lot - who's counting) of that over our girls getaway weekend!  :)  Good thing I'm posting this now then, huh?! 
Well, here it is - my first banner AND some cupcake picks that I know she'll like in her chocolate cuppies with chocolate icing.....ho hum.  No frills for her at all.  Oh well. 
Hope you enjoy and hope I can inspire some one as well!  (Don't forget to check out Sammye Jo's site - you will not be disappointed!

I wish I could get a picture of the whole thing....I may do that after I put it up in the hotel room.  (If I remember!)
