The Birthday fun continues and I love this cute poem written just for me:

Happy Birthday Sweet Tracy!

Today is the day for the song of your soul
To explode with renewal and peace.
Today is the day to laugh and enjoy
A celebration of sweet release.

Yesterdays challenges swept under the bridge
With past remembrance of only good
Your soul can forget those negative barbs
Moving past what was misunderstood.

Tomorrow is the day you step up to the plate
Start the batting and run the bases.
Even the unknown adventures will be fun
Just remember to tie up your laces!!

BUT TODAY is the day to magnify life
Toast to laughter and love and be blest.
Today is the day to dance and play
In the way your heart desires best!

Today at 46th you exemplify a woman
Whose dreams deserve the spotlight.
Walk forward bravely towards your goals
This year’s future is an amazing delight.


I just love that!

Now time for more delicious candy for you AGAIN today – I’ve never given away SO much stuff!  Today we have some stamps by my friend and colleague Andy Skinner for Stampendous.  He did an awesome job with this latest release (obviously don’t tell him I said that!).  I will pick THREE random winners to win a set!


Andy and Stampendous gifted me his new sets and they are great for adding detail and texture to my art!  Here’s some pages I was working on at the Creative Painting show earlier this year.  I stamped the circle image in gold metallic paint – love how that looks!


I’m sharing this post on my Facebook Page today and I want you to share which of his new sets you like best to be entered in the random drawing! (From left to right they are called Toxic, Curiosity and Shabby.).  If you love these stamps as much as me then show some love back to Stampendous today on their Stampendous Facebook page:!  Visit them Stampendous Website: and Stampendous Blog:  I will pick THREE random winners.


Then since Andy is out of town so please go flood his Facebook Page with HAPPY BIRTHDAY messages from me.  I mean really blow up the messages there and wish him a happy birthday.  I want to thank him for posting this on Facebook a few weeks back……..I know how much this will mean to him upon his return.


Thank you Stampendous for your support!
