CSAYL #36 and How did I get to 45?


Good Morning! Sorry I'm a little late with my challenge card, which is horrible, since I was the hostess this week. The Challenge was to create a scene with at least two different stamps or stamp sets! This cute little image is Penguin Candy Cane Swing from Pink Cat Studio's Digital Image Store. The Tree's are from It's Snow Time, a retired SU! set.

Prism Equivalent to Cardstock is Spring Willow Medium and Baby Blue Medium. The little Chipboard Piece is from Scenic Route! Hope you'll play along with us today............




So, today is my Birthday..........I've never been big on celebrating my own Birthday! I love to make surprises for my friends and family on their Birthdays, but just prefer to observe my own quietly!

I really can't believe that I've been on this earth for 45 years. Where DID the time go? Most days I don't even feel remotely close to 45, some days I feel a Hundred. What I do know, is that the 40's have been the most wonderful time in my life. I enjoy my son and his age.....allows us to share humour, good discussion and watching him quickly approach adulthood. I am blessed to have very good friends and a supportive family. Lastly, as a woman in her 40's, I finally feel comfortable in my own skin and with who I am.........there's always room for improvement, but I am good with me!!! Every day should be a celebration for all our blessings..............each day on earth is a gift and that is all the celebration I need

Happy Stamping

  20. I'm so glad that Life is good! There's a lot to be thankful for, and while getting older is definitely interesting, it does have its advantages! Learning to love oneself is certainly one of the best! Glad you had a great birthday! Your picture is beautiful, and your card is precious! Love all those dots!

  25. Happy Belated Birthday, dear girl. I'm fast approaching 50 and it has given me pause to think. But I agree with what you said about your 40's...I felt exactly the same way. Now time seems more limited, shall we say... so I'm determined now, more than ever, to live life to the fullest and the way I want to!!!

    Hugs,
    Lisa
