A Happy Birthday Wish and a Free Element


It may seem like a regular ordinary day to you (even though it IS Saturday so perhaps it just a nice day off too) - but for me this is a special day, for it's my Sister In Law Judy's birthday! This is a day when I can do something extra to let her know just how much we love and appreciate her. Judy has been a constant encourager to me over the years. She's always got a kind word and a helping hand if needed. If I had to pick a flaw I would say it would be her ability to completely overlook my flaws and just make me feel like I'm someone unique and of value. I hope that you are showered with love and honour today!

You can visit Judy's blog to leave your own well wishes by clicking on the Happy Birthday Judy Graphic above!

I found the following sentiment, Judy - which nicely expresses how I feel about you.

You've made a difference in my life, I hope that you can see how happy I am we're joined together by the same family. You're one of those special people who make others feel at ease, it's a pleasure knowing someone who gives herself unselfishly. Your spirit is always ready to comfort and encourage, do you ever have a moment that you feel discouraged? So when I think of you I drop the "in-law" part, leaving me a sister cherished with love inside my heart.

I look forward to seeing how you got pampered today. I love you so very much.

In honour of Judy's day I'm giving you this pretty flamingo element. Judy has a FINE collection of flamingo items she's collected over the years. I hope one day she will dig them out of storage to share with us on her blog one day! And as you can also see if you visit my sister Nina's blog (link in my links list to the right) as she has also 'flamingo-ed' her on a pretty card too!
