Butterfly Birthday

Well, Welcome to 2010. it feels really weird typing that. I hope your holidays were everything you wanted them to be and you had plenty of time with family and friends.

My daughter turned 19 on New Year's Eve. Where did the time go? Seems like it was only yesterday she was this tiny little angel, and now she has turned into this beautiful young woman.

I am so proud of her. She is an awesome photographer, and if you ever need any portraits taken, she's your girl. I will say, however, that although she loves to take pictures, she doesn't like to have her picture taken, so I have to catch them on the sly, and usually I'm not so good at sly, so I get lots of "the look". LOL.

We spent the morning at Bok Tower and Gardens in Lake Wales, Florida. Such a gorgeous place to be, it is so peaceful there, and we really enjoyed taking pictures of all the flowers in bloom, the swans in the pond, Christmas at Pinewood, (a beautiful old home decorated for Christmas, and of course, Bok Tower.

And, since this is a blog about stamping and is the card I gave to
Gabi for her birthday.

I pretty much cased this one from Sandi MacIver. I changed a color or two, but other than that, it is a complete case. It was perfect, so I figured I really couldn't improve on that. Pretty isn't it?

These wonderful winged creatures are in the new Occasions Mini that goes live on January 4th.
You may check it, and the Sale A Bration brochures out by clicking on them in my left sidebar. If
you want to put in an order, cuz there is so much to love in these two new little catties, just let me know, and remember.......during Sale A Bration, for every $50 you spend, you get a free set from the Sale A Bration brochure. There is also a new punch, some DSP, and if you get all you want from there, Stampin' Up! has generously added a whole bunch (approximately 58) stamp sets from the Idea Book and Catalog, that you may choose as free.

It's also a great time to book a workshop, so get with me soon, my calendar is filling up fast.

Have a great day and see ya again soon.
