Tribute to Friendships

To all my SITStahs :

"Wishing you a Blessed Christmas and a blissful year ahead filled with love, friendships and lots and lots of comments love!"

O liberty O liberty! What happiness befalls me...
(to the tune of "O Christmas Tree")

I chose the Statue of Liberty for our Merry SITSmas bloggy Christmas card because its'universal message of hope and freedom for immigrants coming to America and people seeking freedom around the world has grown to include democracy as well as international friendship. I, today , took the oath and officially became a Citizen of the United States ! And in these same respect I found International friends via SITS and for being part of this blogosphere! It has definitely given me the opportunity to have friends all over the world and in the comfort of my own home too!

And if you haven't done yet, Check this cool Grand Prize for today's Merry SITsmas giveaway : $200 Target GC and the Friday fave featured blogger! How cool is that?!

So, here's to a wonderful Christmas, to all Great friends - real and virtual - and to all my SITStahs! And to Tiffany and Heather who started this wonderful dream! Cheers!!! I heart you all !!!

===============================================
NEWSFLASH : I WON the 8th hour giveaway courtesy of FiFi Flowers! So cool!!! - all that mad woman typing, sore fingers and wrists and glaring at my laptop all day (and night) was so worth it!



P.S. That reminds me: I hope my International Creative Swap partner receives her stuffs soon. "I hope you like all the stuffs I sent you".
