Kickin' off summer with a happy day...


Happy Tuesday! Happy Mid-Summer's Day! Happy Summer Solstice! Happy Wimbledon!

Oh and Happy Birthday!

To yours truly :)

Entering my last year of my twenties....should I celebrate with mature, style and decorum?

Or face the fact that I'll always be trying to cram the correct number of candles on my cake, like a kid, no matter what age I am?

Ha! Well one thing's for sure, I'm by no means worried about turning 29. I'm young at heart and that's what counts, right? I've been noted for acting closer to my shoe size than my actual age; which brings me nicely to this card I can share with you today:

4 Today

I do have size 4 feet but this card was for an actual 4 year old - my niece Ruby. She celebrated her special day a few weeks ago.

Huge dollops of Glossy Accents on that li'l critter - trust me, he's super shiny IRL! You can only see his shiny nose but he's glossy all-over because, "he's worth it!" *wink*! I questioned whether it was worth the patience of waiting for it to dry for Ruby's birthday: she opened the card, shook it to see if any money came out and when nothing came out, proceeded to the next card and present...

...I hope I can be more discreet with my own card and presents today...ha!

Right then, it's the longest day of the year (well in the Northern Hemisphere, anyways!) so I'm off to make the most of it!

Thanks so much for stopping by on my special day!

Catch ya later!

Happy Birthday, dear Aimes! How lovely that you have the longest day of the year to celebrate. Enjoy every minute!

Happy birthday! I giggled most way through your post. The critter is adorable and I should think that someone might have picked it up, set it aside for her to look at and cherish later? He's too cute NOT to do that!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Aimes! At 29, you are a Spring Chicken (that's a bit of an odd saying, isn't it?!). Enjoy your special day; it's the shortest day of the year down here in the southern hemisphere :) Oh, super-cute card too!

You are too fun putting all those candles on a cupcake LOL! Impressed you could get a picture with them all lit. Size 4 feet - you are a tiny thing! Hope you get spoiled rotten today :)

Happy Birthday Aimes...I don't mind more candles as long as the candle to cake ratio stays the same ;D
