Happy Birthday Joyce Blog Hop!

A Very Happy Birthday to you Joyce!

I am so honoured that I am able to call you my friend.  When I very first started my blog you were one of the first to visit my blog and leave such kind and sweet comments.  Joyce your work is always beautiful and inspiring and over time you have become such a great friend and email buddy.  I hope that you have a wonderful and relaxing birthday today and that you end up enjoying a Baskin Robins ice cream cake with your family!

If you are following the hop for Joyce you would have arrived here from Gayatri's blog.
Kim Heggins organized this blog hop for Joyce--thank you for including me.
