Just a Quick One Today....

because it is my birthday and I am going to indulge in all things 'wicked' - okay nice thought but seriously, I am going to 'chill out' and enjoy the day, while I slowly age second by second....arghhhh!  Can you tell I am feeling old today!! LOL!

I am showing you two more bookmarks, these are favourites of mine, I love the french vintage look and this set of stamps is one I have that does not see ink often enough!!!

They are pretty self explanatory really, I love it that these ones have a masculine as well and are great to slip in with a masculine card, for that little something extra.

Don't you just love this image, I did it on textured CS to give it more of an aged feel.  The embossed CS underneath adds so much textur - I love texture and have used it on the back as well.

Short post for me isn't it - well, don't get used to it, I have HEAPS of creations coming up in the next few weeks - so BRACE  YOURSELF and keep that coffee brewing for your visits!!!

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes that I have been receiving by every means possible, you are all making my day special...speaking of special - let me show you how we celebrate special events....are you ready for your sugar levels to take a HUGE jump...

YUMBLY isn't it - Black Forest Chocolate Pavlova!!  Sadly I won't be having this as I am diabetic...sigh!!  But I did get something special...my DH & kids gave me my Passport for my birthday...does he want me to leave him - NO WAY!!!  I am heading off to my homeland (New Zealand for those of you who don't know) at the end of May as a birthday present - look out MUM ( aka SuperNan)  Get those Craft Supplies ready otherwise I will go into withdrawal - and even more special is the fact that my DD1 is coming with me - she is working part time and wants to get a ticket and come with me - how much fun will that be, I am so looking forward to having this time together with her and the NZ family!!

Thank you for visiting today - if only it was in person!!  I am off to have lunch and watch a movie with my DH - BEAUT-I-FUL!!  I do appreciate the lovely comments and things you share here - you make my life so much richer - I am going to have to drop an 'L' word - I do LOVE you all - I am allowed to get gushy - it is my birthday! LOL! Have a great day!  {{{hugs}}}

  16. Oh Linda~

    How exciting! Happy Birthday, my Friend! This is a time to look back and recall times that made you laugh the most. And, then, think of all of times that will make you happy and laugh in the future. My husband just had his biggest birthday yet, and he is actually laughing more and taking time to enjoy things more often.

    Your trip sounds so marvelous! Travelling with your daughter alone is a special time, too, I am sure. The closeness that will come from travelling and sharing together will last a life time.

    For your birthday, I hope you have lots of Joy, and that you Dance a lot this year!

    I now have those two things in my life. They have brought me much love, closeness, fun, laughter, intimacy, it lets me feel so much Closer to Him, and pure enjoyment in life!

    I hope you connect with ALL of these feelings and more! Happy Birthday, dear Friend.

    He IS Able,
    Traci S.

    p.s. I almost forgot! I love your vintage looking bookmarks! OH, imagine bookmarks with a bit of lace and painted with water-colors or distressed reinkers? You and your flowers...are incredible. Enjoy some time in you garden, drinking something enjoyable.

    They do sell Splenda and it can make: Hot Chocolate, ice cream and cakes as well as cookies and other items. I'm a diabetic and I have ice cream every night!

  17. Happy Belated Birthday Linda! Oh I bet you can't wait for your trip- what a wonderful gift from your Man!! I hope your time with your family and in your homeland is relaxing and filled with TONS OF CRAFTING! Enjoy Girlie! Blessings and hugs, Heather
