Happy Birthday To Dylusional Dy!

Good Morning Everybody!

This is a special Birthday Post for my friend Dyan Reaveley!  Today March 10th is her BIRTHDAY!  So if you get a chance give her a shout out here, her blog or on Facebook!

The reason why she is so special to me is that she taught me how to slow down and just be....I think that's why whenever I play with Dyan's Dylusion line of Stamps, Stencils and Inks I always say to myself and others, "Be Free...Just Be Free!"  A new door was opened when I started getting inky with Dylusions and I will ever be grateful to her for her encouragement and advice!   She's Crazy and Zany and I love that about her!  I guess that makes me an official Stalker!  LOL!






I know you've seen me blog about her and her bright and happy line many times so you all know that I think she's amazing and such a sweetheart.  Today,  I wanted to share a little present I made for Dyan and I hope she likes it.... By The Way...another little English Birdie...not mentioning any names...Kaz...LOL... told me she LOVED Cowboys so here is my birthday Gift....errr... cake for Dyan....

Dylusional Birthday Cake a la Cowboy!  








Wondering where the cowboy comes in? ....LIFT OFF THE LID AND UP POPS THE COWBOY!  LOL!  Using the many Monster drink cans around the house, I cut a piece of the aluminum and adhered to the back of the figure...The perfect spring for this pop up surprise.




Another gift that my friend Cesar worked on for her...The Hat of Many Dylusions.....Too Cool I think!  He did an awesome job using Dylusions Sprays on a hat he made for her.




HAPPY 50th BIRTHDAY LADY DY!  
I Hope You Have An Awesome Day!!!

Thanks for coming by Y'all!

  25. She is so lucky to have you for a friend! That cake made me giggle, she will love it. That's one handsome cowboy. Cesar's hat is awesome. Are the dyes permanent if they get rained on or did he have to do something to it to make them permanent. I could see me doing this and the first time I wore it in the Oregon rain, I would be a rainbow. Which I guess, somedays that wouldn't be so bad. Way to go boys! Happy 5oth Dy, it's a great year to be!

  34. That cake is amazing! What a cool gift ... and calorie free too!

    Loved the hat, funny .... I just tried the same thing on some crochet I was working on! .... nothing as funky and cool as what Cesar did, but now ..... what he did is way cooler then variegated yarn that always ends up too blotchy! I am off to make some tie dyed mittens ... or should I say Dy-dyed :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow - you two guys have done it again! I love the cake (I used to do cake decorating - but never had one with such an interesting filling)! Cesar's hat is so much fun too! I'm sure that Dyan will be thrilled with it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Jim you've done it again! What a fun cake! And what a fun hat! I'm jealous Cesar can knit -- I crochet but often wish I could knit... But what is most impressive to me is your tribute to Dyan, now I really want to meet her, she sounds so fun and centered at the same time!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow Jim! You really know how to make a cake!!! And this one has ZERO calories!!! I know Dyan will LOVE it! And Cesar....he's quite the budding artist! Love his hat idea for Dyan! As much as she loves color, she will LOVE it! Can I join your club of being an official stalker for Dyan? I think we would have quite a membership! haha Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for sharing your wonderful gift(s) to Dyan on her very special day! <3 Candy
