Pinkalicious

Isn't Little Ms Sparkle just too cute, when I saw these flamingo stamps I knew they were for me. You see there is a flamingo story, yup there is. Many years ago when I was living in a townhouse we had a neighbor who lets just say had his own idea of landscaping. His townhouse was the first one you would see when you entered the complex and he had his lawn decked out in old tires, with bushes growing out of the middle of them and PINK FLAMINGO'sover his lawn. Well there was one neighbor Marie that was on a mission to have these tires and flamingos removed, can't say that I blamed her, it was an eyesore. Marie was an Oncology Nurse at Jackson Memorial Hospital and worked 12 hour shifts. One day my SILand I found a bunch of flamingo lawn ornaments and bought them. Well that night we placed them on her lawn and went our merry way. About 2:00 AM my phone rang and all I could hear was hysterical laughter, she told me it took her 10 minutes to get into her house as she was rolling around on her lawn in hysterical laughter. So this year Marie, who now lives in Colorado will be receiving a Flamingo Christmas Card.

This card is for a very special girl, her name is Victoria, she has cancer and her teacher has made a map and is requesting cards from every state. So little Ms Sparkle will be leaving Florida and heading over to Texas. You can find out more information and also sign up for a chance to win some goodies at Courtney's blog. Beate is also offering some goodies.


Here is another card I made with a different image, there are 4 in the set, so two more to go.
