I am blessed.

Good morning!  Today is my 41st birthday.  I was thinking about what to say about another year passing yesterday and the only thing that came to mind is life is good.  Really good.  I feel very blessed.  I could write pages about why I feel this way, but instead am choosing to keep in short and sweet.  I am blessed.

So...that's all...except of course since it's my birthday, I thought I'd share a birthday card.  The current challenge over at Jay Gee's Nook is to use your holiday stamps to make a non-holiday card.  I used the PTI Merry & Bright set.  Embossed the top panel, added some Stickles for a little extra shine and the card was done!

PS  If you need a laugh, go check out this rap video by my co-workers for my 40th birthday last year.
