It's My Birthday!

Hi Everyone! It's my birthday today! I wanted to show you a couple of wonderful cards that I received!


This is from one of my very first blogging friends, Patsy! This card knocked my socks off! Isn't it gorgeous! The colors, the patterned paper, the Cuttlebug embossing, and the clear panel on the front . . . just wonderful! Thank you so much, Patsy! I love it!


Next, this gorgeous card is from my wonderful blogging friend, Chris! Isn't this gorgeous too? I just love it! The card front is so pretty, I love the ribbon, and the scallop mat and sentiment are perfect! I actually sent Chris some vellum flowers, and she used one of them on this card! Last, but not least, I love the dragonfly! Thank you so much, Chris!!


Chris also included a bag of American Crafts felt flowers! I love these! Chris, you are the BEST! Thank you!



I got this gorgeous card from one of my very best friends, Kathy! I love the color blocking and the two-step stamping! This is so pretty! Thank you, Kathy!


So, Kathy was taking me out to breakfast yesterday morning for my birthday, and on my way to meet her, this is what happened. Yep, it's always something! Not a fun way to start the day! Luckily, Dave was at home, and being my knight in shining armor, he came and rescued me! He came and put on my donut spare tire (geez, those things are pathetic!), and he then drove the van back home. I followed him to make sure that the donut spare was fine, and my girlfriend Kathy followed me. We then went out to breakfast near our house. It was DELICIOUS!


That's a GASH in my sidewall. I did NOT hit anything, go in a pothole, or run over anything. Nasty! So, today, my van needs at least one new tire, but I'm sure it will end up with four new tires. If one of my tires was this worn out, I'm sure the rest of them are too. These things happen!! Dave told me that I'm getting four new tires for my birthday!! Isn't he funny? Not quite what was on my wish list!!

So, that's it from me for today!! I'm going to enjoy QVC for two hours today. Lisa Bearnson is on, and I love watching the product presentations. Who knows . . . if there is something spectacular on, maybe I'll make a birthday purchase!! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!

Oh my....Carol, I was knee deep in card orders and I didn't know it was your birthday. So it's Thurs night and here I am wishing you the best for every day. As for your flat, I had one the other day on my way home from a sewing lesson on that new complex embroidery machine. I was sooo happy that the tire blew just as I pulled in the garage. $145 later, I am good to go. So happy birthday, my friend....
Sorry I am a day late...
