Sweet Birthday Wishes for Hannah!!!

I am blessed to count Stacey Schafer as a true blogging friend - and we've actually spent time together in real life!!  First, she came to Colorado to visit and after a long day of crafting, we had to find a pet store to get a Broncos dog tag for her daughter's new puppy.  About six months later, we met up in Chicago for three days of tourist time and Hannah came too!  We ate and shopped and visited museums and the Skydeck.  Hannah was hanging out with me to walk out on the Skydeck but abandoned me in favor of her mom when it became clear to her that there was no way in heck that I was going to step out on the glass floor 103-stories up!  But when I decided to walk back to the hotel, Hannah graciously agreed to come with me.  It ended up being quite a long walk but very interesting.  We figured out that if you looked up, the gargoyles and other winged creatures on top of the buildings were quite ominous. A few months later, I was honored to be Hannah's first Facebook chat!

Anyway, it's been in my mind for months that I needed to find out the date of her birthday and I've just never gotten it done.  Luckily, I saw cupcakes on Facebook for Hannah's 10th birthday today!!!  So, the card isn't mailed - but I wanted to send sweet birthday wishes to Hannah!!

Oh, such a great story! ha, ha, she sure knows what she wants, 10-year-old Hannah!
Sounds like you all had a wonderful time together, something to cherish.
Love your card, but then I always do!
The bright and cheerful, girly colorcombo, just perfect.
And the cupcakes add the festive feeling of your card.
She will definitely like your card as well, for it's a real 'treat'!
So sweet of you.

Such an enchanting story to accompany your card, Kim. Hannah sounds quite delightful and far more adventurous as I would be. Glass deck on a skyscraper? No way! I couldn't even climb beyond 50 stairs at the Eiffel Tower when I went to Paris with my brother! He went to the top, and took a fabulous photo of me, down on the ground, where I know I was pouting my fear of heights. Yep, call me chicken! I know Hannah will absolutely love this card; as do I. Awesome cupcakes, indeed!
