A VERY Special Birthday Surprise!...

Hey everyone!

{{{PLEASE SCROLL DOWN for my Greeting Farm preview post-you will NOT want to miss the Naughty Niceness that is going on today over on the Farm :)  heehee}}}

I got an email from Karen Motz a while back asking me if I'd like to participate in a BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP for our sweet friend JODI COLLINS and OF COURSE the answer was YES!

Jodi and I met a few years back on DT together and have been cyber-friends ever since.   The only gripe I have w/ this chickie is that we have crossed paths at TWO CHA's and weren't able to meet in person yet, but that's ok!  That hug I owe her just gets bigger and bigger ;)

So today is Jodi's BIRTHDAY, hooray!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, chickie!!!!  Love ya lots and wishing you ALL kinds of happiness and wonder in the year to come!

I know that Jodi really ROCKS the MFT Pure Innocence chicks and I adore her creations w/ them :)  I don't have very many in that dept, but I whipped this up for her today:

Hope you like it, Jod's!  I wish you a BLOOMIN' good day for SURE on your birthday and just couldn't make you a winter card, LOL!   Bring on those flowers!
