Congratulations Anne-Marie! If you will send me your snail mail address I will get your package of goodies sent off to you straightaway!

On the health front - much better! Still coughing and wearing myself out doing it. I guess getting to be a cranky old lady means it takes a bit longer to recover from these kinds of things. I really don't feel much older today than I did yesterday - 60 is just a number - right? In spite of the pneumonia, I had a truly lovely birthday:




That fantastic cake was made by my DDL Autumn - isn't it spectacular? Thanks to DS Kelly for the pix of the lovelies as well. They were all really anxious to dig into it I can tell you!

Spent the evening stamping and coloring - WITH COPICS - with my bff Sabrina. She brought me a print of THIS picture because the moment I saw it I fell in love with it and have been an ardent follower of Chronicles of a Country Girl ever since. She also did so many, many nice things for me and I will never be able to thank her enough. I'll keep trying though! I'll share a photo of the poppies I colored later this week. I vowed I would not get sucked in by these markers, but, well, too late. What's done is done and now I'm just waiting for my order from Outlaw Women to get here so I can dig in big time!

I have a stamp camp this weekend with 12 lovely ladies and we are going to have a grand time. Now, anybody see my energy? I really need to find it so I can be ready in time!!!

Got some new rubber from Ann Vento at Whimsy Stamps - postage stamps! I also got the die and can't wait to play with these fun images. Look for some samples of those in the next few days.

I know I promised a freebie for yesterday, but it's not quite done. It is a set of ticket sentiments that I hope you will all enjoy. Here's a small sample:

Hopefully, it will be done and ready to publish in the next day or so. Thanks for being patient with me while I recover!

Thanks for visiting!
