An Early Birthday Gift! FMS60




Tui's wonderful sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week inspired me to create a birthday card - complete with candle. I have had some major computer issues lately so I know what I will be wanting for my birthday next month. But I did get a nice gift this week - from all of you!  My readers topped 700 which totally amazes me - wow! You all rock!  I asked my husband to guess how many readers he thought I had.  He said "Mmmmmm counting family maybe 50 or 75."  And now I must thank you all again - because the look on his face when I said "Over 700" was priceless!
