Time for a BIRTHDAY at In The Pink...

Hi Lovely Blogging Buddies...

It's time to celebrate at In The Pink.......  the challenge blog is ONE YEAR OLD today...  so there's big celebrations afoot at The Pink Palace...   excitement is in the air....  and there's wonderful prizes and candy to be had!

And.....  it's a double celebration as tomorrow it's a very BIG birthday for me......  one I've not been looking forward to...  but I suppose it IS only a number, and I'll still be the very same person.... I will just have to be ticking the last box when it comes to questions on forms relating to my age - I don't like that bit!!  Yuck!!  But I will get cheaper priced tickets for shows etc...  and free prescriptions.... so it can't be all bad!

We're having a 'bit of a do' on Saturday...  which I'm really looking forward to.... it'll be lovely to see family and friends together.

(Just to show the 3D effect)

And I think the card I've made will be MY card to ME.... cos I love that it's all pink and glittery...  you know when things go just right??  That's how this card made me feel!

  • Sentiment - LOTV Handwritten Sentiments
