Hi Everyone. :) You are all so good to me and my work.

You do realize that I use DDR on my face, right? :D It has been many years since I was referred to as a [porcelain] doll. And even then it was the Oil of Olay and the Covergirl make up that did the trick!! :)))))

I love these flowers that Mumj gave to me and they just seemed to work so well to layer a face in there. :)))

So.........Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers today! Okay? We all have many blessings!!!

Thanks again!!!

-Laura #10414443

Nancyj E. Hovey level-classic 11/13/2012 1:05:50 PM

and glad you had a wonderful birthday! 8o) #10417526

A beautiful lady, a beautiful work of art, and a belated Happy Birthday, Dear Friend! #10423991

Mary K. Robison 11/19/2012 5:57:27 AM

Hard to believe this beautiful card slipped past me till today, Pom. It's as lovely as your thoughtful words. No surprise why people like to acknowledge you whenever they have an occasion to do so, or just for being you!
I know your birthday was a happy one ~ and you deserved it, especially after the tough year you've had. Hope the coming year will be the exact opposite for you! #10425161

Lorna Shutter 11/28/2012 3:43:52 PM

Wow! I wish I was as beautiful as you are, Sis, so that I could do self-portraits like this! Unfortunately, I got stuck with all the brains! LOL! No amount of DDR work could transform me into such a doll! The flowers from Mumj are simply gorgeous! ... and they frame your face so nicely! What a kind and generous soul she is! This is a Winner in MY book too! ... and an instant FAVE for me! :) #10437118
