Sing Like No One's Listening...

First...I'd like to say hello personally to each of you and a sincere "Thank You" to my many "new blog follower's" who have joined my site this week. I'm delighted to have you all and love each of your comments you so graciously wrote to me!  Also... special and sincere hugs to Anne at Stamps and for sending them by my place. (Click on her name or blog to go to her place.)  I so appreciate all of you stopping by.  I hope you continue to stop in for inspiration weekly and say hello when you can.  Having you all stop helps make blogging worth while especially when you message me.  I so... love comments!  
Now...Some of my regular blog followers may notice a few subtle changes to my blog today.  I had trouble this week and had to tweak my blog settings to get back my print style and a few other problems that existed out of no where?  At least I was able to get it back to it's original "similar" style?
I think I inadvertently hit "Compose" in the design area and it tripped my original setting to disappear.  Working on Blogger settings is not my favorite things to do, because if you mess with one thing, it messes up another thing.  So at this point, I'm leaving it well enough alone.
Awhh, sigh, ?
We have one of the sweetest older women at church who just turned 80 this year. I enjoy her and wanted to help celebrate with a homemade card for her. So I made this and sent it to her for her birthday.  I think she was pleasantly surprised?

I took my Martha Stewart punch and made a few extra flowers and took my tiny maple leaf punch and attached them to the bottom lattice and to the top birds area for more interest. I used my brown Tom Bow pens and added brown dot centers to the flowers.  I love the lattice here and loved the way the flowers and leaves look attached to this area of the card.  It makes a huge difference to the lattice area, I think?

At 80 years old, I hope I can still sing like no one is listening?  I hope I still have all the pep and love that this special women holds.  Happy 80th Birthday Bobbie!  We love you!
Now...thanks for stopping by again today stampers!
I'm singing like no one is listening. 
I'd be over the moon with comments today from you.
