3 years and counting!!

So here it is, a stamp of me!!  WOW.  Celebrating three years post brain surgery.  This wonderful image was drawn by artist Sandra Caldwell.  How special is that?  I was so thrilled.  How many people want to say they have a stamp of their very own, not to mention one made by one of their very favorite stamp artists.  So touching!  I made this awesome card to celebrate 3 years and this is the very card that I took to the doctor (couple weeks ago) when I mentioned going there and giving him and his staff a gift.
