 I have so much fun designing a day for you all!!
 Here's a few pictures of the ladies that I get to count it all joy for!!

And last but not least here's the recipe for the carrot cake!!

Carrot Cake
3 cups shredded carrots
4 eggs
1 cup nonfat milk
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a 9'x9" square baking pan. Set aside. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Beat at low speed for about 30 seconds to combine all ingredients. Turn mixer to high and continue to beat for about one minute until mixture is combined really well. Pour batter into baking pan and cook for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. (the cake will be really dark brown). Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack to cool. While it cools, prepare the icing.
2 ounces low fat cream cheese, at room temperature
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon nonfat milk
Beat cream cheese and butter together until smooth and blended. Add sugar, vanilla, and milk and beat well until completely smooth and all ingredients are incorporated. (I call this an icing because it isn't firm like frosting, rather, it's quite creamy and icing-like).

Happy Stamping/ or Baking!!  May God Bless each and every one of you!!
Love, Julie
