Happy Birthday, Mika! (and a winner)

Today was my friend, Mika's, birthday.  We had a little celebration this morning with a cinnamon pecan coffee cake I baked last night.  I've been working at Triangle for a little over three years, but my mom worked there for close to 30 years, so I've known Mika for a long time.  She even came to my aerobic classes back in the early 80s!  (I taught a dance aerobics class six hours a week - it was fun and I could eat whatever I wanted!)  Oh, those were the days...

This is the card we all signed for her.  That cute image is from Made by Janet - wait a minute, she changed her store name - I have to go see what is.  Okay, it's still Made by Janet - she's just added Digital Street to it.

This set has the most adorable little bakers! 

Now to announce the winner of the Easter goodie basket from the Paper Issues blog hop post right before this one.  I did it the old fashioned way - wrote names on slips of paper and put them in a hat (well, a basket).  My husband had the honors of picking the slip of paper.  The winner is:

June, shoot me an email and I'll get your easter basket and goodies to you.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of your week!
