Birthday Wishes


I have a birthday card to show you.  A special birthday card for a very special person.  I just gave her the card, so now I can publish this posting.

And as you can see from the sentiment inside the card, this is for a special birthday.

Here's a closer look at featured images from Wee Stamps.

This oh-so-adorable gal is called Dolly.

This other cutie was freebie--thanks, Sylvia!

She's been named Jillian.

Both of these images are the creations of Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps.  Sylvia has other equally adorable images--take a look at them HERE and also HERE.

If you prefer rubberstamps and/or toppers, you can find the links on Sylvia's Blog.
