It's 9th day of the month....(A Birthday Giveaway!)

Hello friends!
It's 9 pm of  9th day of December ....do you know what that means?
It's MY BIRTHDAY!! 😁

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa....and you get to have your cake and eat it , too!

To celebrate my birthday, I am giving away 

$15 Simon Says Stamp Gift Card
and 
$15 Altenew Gift Card (monthly)

Please leave me a comment in this very post (only this post's comments count!)
AND if you do shop through my post links today and/or in the past, you can leave up to 2 comments!
You comment can be anything you care to share.

Here are some of my fun traveling photos that I share over the years.
I consider myself an optimistic person with a fun and easygoing personality.
Maybe it has to do with my birth order (child #3 of 4)....?


 
Meanwhile, you can help me celebrate by shopping through my links.
This year, I have made donations to various charity (PBS, TVO, Red Cross).
 Your shopping have enabled me to donate more.
For that, I am so very grateful.

I'm so glad I logged on to blogland today and saw this...happy birthday, Virginia! It is an exciting time of year to have a birthday (I know, I'm a December baby, too!) and I love your generous spirit in celebrating by giving away gifts! I just want to leave a comment to tell you that although I don't get the chance to visit very often -- life is really ramping up with my four teenagers and my mom who needs more attention -- I do love to see your posts, your beautiful cards, your fun travels, and what your family is up to! Your posts always make me happy...what a gift you share with us! Thank you for giving of yourself, through charities and the sharing of your many talents, all year long. Best wishes for a very happy birthday, Virginia!

Belated Happy Birthday, Virginia! Your selection of photos conveys, wonderfully, so many delightful aspects of your personality: your passion for crafting, your love for your family, your spirit of adventure in your travels. I agree: you are a fun-loving, sweet, generous, family-and-friends oriented, talented individual. How lucky we are to have you in our lives! Hope your special day was filled with celebration, joy and love...and that you continue to experience more of the same - in abundance - in the year about to unfold!
Hugs~carol
