It is the day after my 45th birthday! I had such a wonderful day, one of my very best birthdays ever! Above and below is the beautiful card that Beth made for my birthday!!!!!! It is absolutely one of the most beautiful things I have ver seen. I love it so! The words inside are taken from an old Little House on the Prairie book! Clever!
I had so many phone calls yesterday from friends and family. I felt like the belle of the ball! My Mom, brother, and Jane came over. We went out to lunch at Portillo's (sorry Kim!) and then came home and while the guys watched classic episodes from The Dick Van Dyke show, we gals stamped and had a really great time!
Also, I had surprises on the blogs of my friends!!! I was tickled pink by Kim and Sandy!!! How sweet!! And the previous entry on my blog done by my Banner Fairy AKA Heather! What a wonderful surprise that was!!! (and don't forget people...she is going to start her banner business this year, so all those half-naked blogs can get beautiful!)
Above is the tag that Trish made for my gift! Isn't it cool???
Unrelated to birthday...... the most talented Cris Cunningham sent me this altered cabinet card when she sent in her FFA page!!! Wow! I was so thrilled!!!! This is so gorgeous!
My wonderful friend Karen made the above card for my birthday! I absolutely love it!! It is stamped on a small white card and looks adorable!!!! This stamp is from the vegetable couture line from Lokhart stamps.....check out their flower couture line too! Very innovative and totally cute!
Above is a journal page my Mom did last night!!! Totally gorgeous. You can't see all the glitter sparkle she added with this scan though!
Above is a card that Jane made! Isn't it the cutest!! She is a genius! We were inspired by the gorgeous card that Donna made and posted on her blog. The main image is a retired Stamping Up stamp and the How Jolly is a stamp from Red Lead that we have coveted the entire Christmas season! Look for it on many, many Christmas projects next year as we finally broke down and bought one after Christmas this year! What were we waiting for?
Heavenly Peace. Another journal page that my Mom did last night! So simple and beautiful!
Thank you to all for such a wonderful birthday!
