Sounds like it was a great birthday and you certainly don't sound old to me!! I so admire you energy!! Love your card, its so so pretty and that big bow just sets it all off. Well done on your Top 5 win. If its a non flashing blinkie right click and save it with your picks then put on your blog from there. If its a blinking one right click and save properties...I think:) Have a good weekend.
