Surprize Birthday Blog Candy

This Saturday is my Birthday so I have decided to give away some blog candy. I have several extra sets of the Mark's Finest Papers stamps issued during the last few months, and MFP told them to give them away as blog candy.

To win, all you have to do is leave a comment wishing me Happy Birthday and tell me which of the MFP cards I posted this week was your favorite. I will draw a winner randomly on Monday so check back to see if you won. If you are on the MFP DT already and are selected, I will make sure and send you something else fun!

Tonight, my youngest daughter and I had dinner to celebrate my birthday - here is a picture of me while I am still one year younger - LOL!



  1. Just wanted to pop in to say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! You look fabulous!! :) No need to enter me in the drawing, but I love everything that you do!! You're very creative!! :) HUGS

  2. Well happy birthday you young thang!! You look more like your daughter's sister than her mother! Woot!
    My favorite card is definitely that pine branch swag card you posted just yesterday! It blew me away! I love how you assembled the swag! Wishing you a year filled with wonderful and special joy! ((hugs))

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my Punchkateer friend. I didn't realize it was your birthday....bad me, no card for you. I'm feeling very ashamed. :-( You would know I love that SNOWMAN tag you did. If there is a snowman in the mix, you know that will be my pick, right? Ha
    Have a fabulous birthday. Your photo looks awesome. I think you are growing younger and prettier by the year.

  4. Happy Birthday, such a fabulous photograph - I hope you enjoyed your Birthday dinner.
    My favourite MFP card has to be the one with the adorable little owl.
    I hope you have a fabulous day.

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
