Birthday Countdown

Hi friends,

It's been a loooong time since I last posted, guilty as charged! Life, life... Anyway, I am excited to be back to the crafting world again and want to renew my vows to this fantastic therapeutic outlet, cardmaking, with a daring project.

I have a very special friend, who I met a long time ago, and who became very close to me in the past year. She's miles away, so our communication is limited to what our wonderful world of modern technology offers in terms of connecting people... But when you have this connection, and you have a kind and supportive, and encouraging, and inspiring individual on the other end of the wire, it really doesn't matter where physically you're at, right? Annie K, thank you so much for being part of my life and for helping me stay afloat! You're amazing, and I'm sure your kids inherited your huge heart, kind and curious mind and sparkling optimism! The world needs people like you (well, at least I surely do :-))

So, my daring project is to have a special countdown for Annie, who is turning 42 on May 9 :-) Today is exactly 42 days until May 9, and I will post a card here every day to count down to Annie's birthday. I might not follow through, as getting back in gear is a task challenging enough on its own, but I will try my best to keep the countdown and the card marathon up. I'm crossing my fingers that Annie wouldn't think this is crazy, but I do want to give her this special birthday celebration no matter what :-)

With that, my first card is a Welcome Baby card, as the idea is to get to card #42 on day 0 :-) Or will it be card # 43 on day 0?... Oh, well, I'm hopeless with calendars... Here goes my first card, 42 days to go to May 9 :-)
