My Life has been enriched with many opportunities and with many people through stamping and being a part of the Stampin' Up! Family. Stamping has brought a closeness with many friends all through the love of stamping and bring creative. There is one special friend that I met just a couple of months ago. He name is Carrie and today is her birthday. I won't tell you how old she is (but shhhhhhh don't tell anyone, she is celebrating the 11th anniversary of her 29th Birthday). Recently she signed up as my one of downline, but regardless whether she had joined my team or not, she has become one of my closest and dearest friends. We are constantly realizing that we have so many things in common. This candle and matching card are her Birthday present. I've already given it to her, so you won't spoil any surprise if you wish her Happy Birthday. I used the Manhattan Flower #114517 $7.95 and Vintage Wallpaper #120175 $7.95 Embossing Folders and some black and red metal sheets to decorate a large candle and make a matching card. I hope your Birthday brings you all you so richly deserve....Happy Birthday Carrie, my friend.
