happy EVERYTHING

Don't you love cards that just fall in place....especially when you literally only have 10 minutes to stamp? This is a group birthday card that went to my dear friend. We've know each other for over 20 years. She is my "fussy" friend....lots of style....tells you like she sees it...a true friend :) You know when you're looking around for thee perfect gift? I thought that I found it for this friend of mine. She is, as I mentioned before, fussy. She is a minimalist...doesn't want a lot of clutter. I went out on a limb and picked up 4 gorgeous mercury glass votive holders...not just mercury glass but each of the votive holders have thee best bling on them...1950's cocktail clip earring type bling....really indescribable but I know when I've found thee perfect gift when it resulted in a *gasp* and that it is fireplace mantel worthy...Woo Hoo!!!
