Happy Birthday...

Just sitting here watching the Superbowl and the accompanying commercial/marketing bonanza that goes along with it.  So far, the M&M's are winning it...the commercial bowl that is :)  I have been fighting a bad cold for days now and am trying to will myself to go to the store.  It is an emergency....I need Swedish Fish Candy...yep...NEED!  Can't stop thinking about them...need to eat them...they are the only thing that will make me better.  Why is it that when you do not have something, it is the only thing you can think of?  Right now I see the Raven and Niners with Swedish Fish heads under those helmets...hee hee...it is a pretty funny sight actually.  I may need to lay off the Nyquil, eh?  Lol ;)  Enough rambling...on with the card...which does NOT have a fish on it...must have been before the craving started!

Another CAS winner, Pryn! Love those candles, the twine you wrapped around them, and the simple sentiment. :^)
Fish heads, huh? I have no idea what candy you are talking about, but I do understand the craving. LOL! I hope you feel much better soon, Kiddo! :^)
Hugs, Penny

Oooh, I LOVE this Pryn! Such a cool CAS card!
And wow, you literally made me laugh out loud describing the Ravens and 49'ers as Swedish fish! I totally know what you mean about being sick though - usually when I have a sore throat, I crave grapefruit juice - weird, right?!
Love and praying for ya! :)

I love how you wrapped the bakers twine around those candles. Swedish fish? I've never had those. Is that a candy? They must be good! Better look for them!
