My Birthday Thanks!!

Oh my word! I've had a fantastic day and it's not even over yet!! So here are my thanks to all my wonderful friends who sent me the most amazing cards and gifts, I am so touched!!

Here is a beautiful card from my friend Louise (Crafty Lou) who makes the most amazing cards coloured with twinkling pens, the shimmer is to die for...

And here are the amazing gifts which Louise sent me, including some of these amazing pens, I can't wait to start playing. And I also got lots of beautiful stamps from The Greeting farm, papers and embellishments, I'm so touched Louise, I'm still picking my chin up off the floor! Thanks so much hon!!

And look what my special friend Lisa (Crafting Diva) made me. A gorgeous altered box, all personalised and in my favourite colours too!!

And there were all these goodies inside, again loads of altered stuff which I love, you are so creative Lisa, I think I need some lessons from you in altering!!

And here is a close up of Lisa's beautiful card, the colouring on the image is amazing and I love all the little details!! You're a star Lisa!! Thanks so much!!

My very good friend Kate sent me this gorgeous Boyds card and adorable Steiff keyring, Kate knows how much I love teddies, and this is my first Steiff teddy to so I am so chuffed!! Thanks so much Kate!!

I love this card from the gorgeous Jill, the design, colour and image are adorable, I think this is a card I commented on Jill's blog saying how much I loved it, It's so cute!!

And Jill also sent me a huge envelope packed with tons of goodies, I can't wait to dive in and have a play, thanks so much for your generosity Jill!!

I adore this card from the beautiful Linda (Linanna Designs) the sparkle on the bear is amazing and I just can't stop touching everything, it's so gorgeous!!

And Linda also sent me these beautiful stamps from Tim Holtz and Little Claire Designs, they are gorgeous Linda, and so thoughtful, can't wait to ink them up!! Thanks so much!!

Look at this stunning card and ATC I got from Paula from Pollycraft Designs. The colouring is out of this world, these really are so beautiful, thanks so much for sending them to me Paula, I'm so chuffed!!

I love this card from my special friend Joanne (Bubbles) the papers and image are among my favourites and the sentiment is really touching, thanks so much honey!!

And Joanne also sent me these gorgeous chocs (my fave which have now gone!!) a cute pack of embellies and this gorgeous bracelet which Joanne made herself!! I've had it on all day, the colours are just up my street, I love black jewellery, Joanne really does know me well!! Thanks so much hon!!

Here's a really comical card which I got from my BF's mum helped by BF's sister as her mum has a broken arm!!

It's one of those front and back cards, I love the card stuck on her bottom!!

And I also got this gorgeous stash from her too, those flowers are so pretty and I've wanted something from Smirk for a while, so I'm a happy bunny!!

Here is the gorgeous card which my BF Arline made me, it opens up like an envelope, it's so cool and has a sparkly 30, gorgeous! (although the naughty girl filled the envelope with sprinkles and they went everywhere he he!!)

Arline also got me this gorgeous Boyds bear which I'd hinted at, and how cool is this block of chocolate!!

I also got these from Arline, I love this cool pencil case, and look at all those yummy buttons and embellies... yum!!

Arline also got me all this gorgeous rubbah!! Oh my heart was racing as I was opening all the little packets (can you believe she got me 30 prezzies cause I was 30!! Can't wait til I'm 100 lol!!)

Here is a gorgeous card from the gorgeous Tracy (Ella Bella) and her gorgeous daughter Holly, I also got loads of yummy stamped images too, thanks so much honies!!

My wonderful friend Chrissie (Chrissie's Card Creations) sent me this stunning card, it's so beautiful hon, I'm so impressed!!

And I got this super cute card from the very talented Sue (Susie Sunshine) I really want some nesties now!! Thanks so much Sue, it's gorgeous!!

And my gorgeous CDM Teamie Sandra (Cherry Pickins) sent me this gorgeous card, ooh I love it San, thank you so so much!!

And my lovely friend Heidi sent me this gorgeous card and ATC, how cute are they!! Thanks so much Heidi (not long til your birthday now!!)

And here is the teddy that Dylan bought me, how cute!!

And the card he made (he did so well seeing as he has only one working arm at the mo). I think it could possibly pass for modern art lol!!

And I got this card and teddy ornament from Mr Becky (plus some money for crafting goodies!!)

Here are some of the other prezzies I got, I asked for a jigsaw and mat where you can roll up the jigsaw when you're not doing it, Mr Becky think I'm old before my time lol!! He got me a really cool magnifying mirror and make up set too, I love my hair and make up products!!

I got these gorgeous flowers from Mr Becky's parents, they're really pretty!!

Here is my cake... I had to have the cake that Dylan liked... he loves the Stig from Top Gear!!

And just a quick little picture of me with my special Tatty Teddy balloon, I've had a fantastic day, thank you to everyone who has been so generous and made my day what it was and for all your lovely comments and emails, you're all the best!!
Love always, Becky xx
