I added the little kitty watching her play.

Hope your week is going well.  My heart goes out to all those involved in flooding and earthquakes this past week.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in today and letting me know you did,

Oh, Connie, what an adorable little girl, and I remember having SUCH fun with a hoola hoop! We would do it for hours on end! Hehe! I know your niece will love it! Yes, it is so tragic about both the floods and the earthquakes, and I trust that God will draw people to Himself through this devastating time and that His people will minister to those hurting so. Hugs, sweet friend!

Oh beautiful work Connie such a great little hoopla girl, we loved them in our teens, but we called them hoops here, very simple. I mastered very basic level but was pretty happy with that, great birthday card!

Thanks so much for the inspiration,

Oh, yes, perfect and adorable! I love that you added the kitty. I have that die set but haven't used it yet. Working my way through all the stamps and dies that need love, but it's not happening very quickly. Your great niece will just love this!
