O Happy Day

I love birthdays and celebrations of the kind when we can be thankful for another year of blessings and life :) Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday and birthdays are no different than that...another God given chance to celebrate all that He is in our lives...'cause without God, no life would be here :) This card is another one I sent to Dorothy...I couldn't get it to be less fuzzy, sorry...but I again used this sweet little girl swinging on her swing. I also used Red Riding hood trimmed ribbon from Stampin the stuff :)

This is an extra set of images I made to give to my friend Wendy for her birthday. It is the same idea I used for an image swap I did with some SBS sisters...I hope they've all received their images!! Using Red Riding Hood CS from SU, this is a simple holder made with 1/2 a sheet of 8.5x11" CS and only a few folds. I CB'ed the front flap to make it fancier and added a flower sticker! Fun!
Finally, here is a picture of our daughter from Denmark blowing out her candles and opening presents after her 17th birthday dinner last week. We are so thankful that her mom and dad and family shared her with us! We know that it must be hard for them not to be with their girl on her birthday, but we thank God that we could be here for her to experience a birthday celebration in the States. I cannot believe how time has flown by since she first came in August! She will be going home in only a few short months! Eek! And I am not very good at goodbyes....lalalalalalalala (fingers in ears, can't hear you!) Change of subject!

The second picture is a snapshot of both girls :) Love 'em!

I hope you are celebrating blessings today! Be well and smile :)


  1. Isn't it great how the same image can look so different with a bit of a color change and on a different card design? Great card, Kim Marie! I just love this image!

    Have a great day!

  2. Great cards, and I really like Riding Hood Red. Cute photos of the girls!

  3. Cute card, Kim! Love the very pretty colours!

  4. You are such a nice friend! I'm sure Wendy is (was) blessed! You'll have to show me how you did that little holder. Very nice. And no, I can't believe that "M" will be going home in just a few months! I "eeek" with you!!! What a wonderful host family you are. Great job on the "fuzzy" card too, by the way!

  5. Beautiful card Kim Marie :)

  6. Cute card Kim Marie and love the colours. Have to say very envious of your "jacket" that our stamped images arrived in . . it was very cool and I have kept it to plagerise later ! ! !

    Glad to hear the birthday celebrations went well and thanks for sharing the photo's with us all.

    Take care,


  7. Great card Kim Marie. Looks like everyone had a lovely time.
