Happy Birthday to MEEEEEEE.


I love having a birthday.  I am cherished by so many and I always feel the blessing to be "here in the now" of life. I have many friends that are not here and I am always ever so cognizant of that.... So today I wish me a Happy 76th birthday.  Here are some of my precious cards conveying wonderful birthday wishes....

 My friend, a bloggy friend, a design team friend Sandi Kelly worked her magic for my celebration.  Her concepts of art and design, techniques and delights are a wonder to receive. This is a box carrying some pretty little colored chalks. Just look at that beautiful flower...!!!
 I yelped out loud with glee at my "wand".  It carries very special charms that Sandi took great care in searching for ... She knows how I love to sew....The top of the wand has a bobbin,  From this bobbin hangs the most delightful Carole-things: A pair of scissors, a button and a ruler and as I surveyed these delights, I yelped in glee once more when I discovered she had put upon the wand a little frog.  Everyone knows how Carole loves her froggies.
 This highlights a chalkboard...and a delightful little birthday message from Sandi.
 This is a Tea Light Shoji.. a mirror to set upon a small bulb light which is surrounded with a wonderfully colored screen that Sandi has stamped with a flower, a sewing machine, the message to "keep calm and stitch on".
Aren't I special?....  Thanks for your visit. You have a happy happy day.  Today I am being wined and dined by my former workmates, tomorrow and the next day are two more special lunches.  Ah the life of a 76 year old chica.
