My good friend Loll (Stamping with Loll)
is celebrating her birthday.
Happy Birthday again, my friend.
One of the first cards that I saw of Loll's was lollipops.
This single daisy reminded me of a lollipop
so it had Loll's name on it right away.
I stamped the daisy (it's from a new Stampin' Up! hostess set)
with Smoky Slate and colored the center with a
Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker.

They had a birthday last week.
a belated Happy Birthday ladies!
I'm so glad you could stop by.
And a very happy birthday, Loll.
