From All Us To You!!

Happy Birthday, Jan! You ROCK!!


Wonderful card and happy birthday to you!!


A very happy birthday to you! Even if it is rainy. I'd trade rain for the 90+ degree weather we are supposed to have here today. H-O-T especially for April.

Susan Miller

A very Happy Birthday to you! I also have a birthday today. I am a working girl so no day off for me. I also will have a yummy lunch with a diet beginning on the 21st so I can be smashing for convention. Look smashing not to smash someone. That is my goal anyway. My little sister was also born on the 20th. Some present when you are a 3 year old. A baby. (great timing mom and dad) She is a sweet sister and a true blessing. My chocolate of choice today will be a brownie cheescake. Yum! I do wish you are fab and rocking day with lots of fun and of course chocolate! Enjoy! Susan M.
PS so sorry about the rain. it is 9:05am and my air cond keeps clicking on...very warm for us this time of year.

Wishing you the happiest of Birthdays! I'm with you - birthdays should be no stress days full of only fun things - stamping, shopping, eating, more stamping!

Jan, Happy Birthday! Belated! I had 2 blogs opened and I either called you Wanda or wished Wanda a happy birthday on your birthday! :) Oh well, stuff happens and I do hope you had a great day!

Terry Molineux

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!!! I did not get your update yesterday so I am really sorry it is late....Big hugs from New York and cannot wait until convention so I can meet the goodness in person!


Jan, just a note to wish you a wonderful belated birthday, and you have to treat yourself regardless of your pant size! I found myself laughing hysterically at your Lord of the Rings post, and oddly enough, I never got into the Lord of the Rings, yet I understood exactly what you were saying. It was effective too, because later I found myself laughing again, and trying to explain it to my 10 year old. Unsuccessfully I might add. Now he thinks I'm weird too but that's ok. Regardless, I hope you had a great birthday and thanks for sharing all your fabulous creations with us. Your humor just kills me!
