birthday card from a friend

i came back from hawaii to find this sitting on my craft table.
the friend that i made that bella birthday card for (the st. paddies
day card) watched our house for us while we were gone, and he
tried his hand at card making all in the name of a friends birthday.

i am super impressed with this card! he got out my stuff (including the CB, see the flower?!), used what he wanted, added elements and framed the CS. he even cleaned the stamps and put them back! he used a glitter marker on the inside.

definately A for effort! thanks rob, you're great! did i mention that while we were gone he got our hot tub in place and in working order?? that's a SUPER birthday gift! thanks rob, you're the greatest!

birthday stuff from an angel

too cute, right?!? my good friend laurie (visit her blog here) is a TAC demo and absolutely fabulous! both creatively & personally.

she knows that i just love frogs and showered me with
froggy gifts for my birthday. i did get this in time for
my special day, i just got home last night from an
almost 2 week trip to the island of oahu, hawaii to visit
my sister and her family.

laurie is great at using dimensionals, the picture of this
card just doesn't do it justice! and look at her great
coloring job on him! he is just too cute! and on the
scalloped panel, she printed the sentiment on vellum
and put it on the CS.

and this. WOW!! laurie knows that i always have a lot on my mind and am always making lists to try to organize my thoughts. so, here we are! she used the same image and made me a cute little 'toad' do list book! the book is filled with lined papers to make my lists nice and neat.

once again, her coloring is phenomenal, just perfect! and she matched the colors of ribbons to it to a "T"! love that distressing, way to go, girl!

and last, certainly not least, she threw in the stamp! now i can (try to) create fabulous items just like her!

thank you so much, laurie! you rock!

RAK from my SBS2 secrect sister

look at all the super fab goodies i got! my sbs2 secrect sister (sara, visit her blog here). she sent it perfectly and i got it on my birthday! don't you just love the cute card she sent with it? what great girly stamps! and she paper pieced the shirt on the girl in the middle and the purses. she also added gold "jewelry" to all three ladies. LOVE IT!!

and the goodies! BOY am i lucky! i got some sticky rhinestones, 3 spools of ribbon, an empty bandaid tin and yellow bucket, lots of pretty white paper flowers, an incredible pad of handmade dry-embossed purple & blue papers, and three diffrent bella stamps. how did she know that i love bellas?

thanks SOOO much, sarah! what a great sister you are!
