Wow! Look What I Got For My Birthday!!xx

Hi Everyone!!

Well today I'm celebrating my birthday... not telling you how old I am but if you can work out this sum then you will know... 10 + 5 x 2 + 1 =??? LOL!!!

So anyway... let me share what gorgeous cards and gifts I got!!

My 'Boss' Paula from Pollycraft sent me this gorgeous card and stamped images...

And she also sent me a voucher to spend at Quixotic and I chose this gorgeous bundle (Prima flowers, Basic Grey pad with dogs and cats and some pearls!!) They sent me some little teddy charms for free too!! Thanks so much Paula, you're so kind!!xx

And my 'Boss' Tracy from The Creative Cottage sent me this gorgeous card... I've never seen this George Easel card kit before so I'm guessing it's a sneaky peak and me loves it!! Tracy also sent me 10 sheets of Gruffies decoupage (how did she know I wanted these??) and also a Kanban topper sheet and backing card (so cute!!) some Cuddly Buddly sentiment stamps which are going to come in so handy! And yet more gorgeous stamped images, I'm in stamped image heaven!! Thanks so much Tracy, I really appreciate and love everything!!xx

And my gorgeous Sketch and Stash and Pollycraft teamie Sue sent me this stunning card which I remember lusting after and now it's mine he he!! And look at the yummy stash which Sue sent me too... all co-ordinated in the same shades, oh I'm very impressed Sue!! Just check out those lush ribbons, hat pins, gems and Sugar Nellie stamp too! Wow Sue you've really blown me away with your generosity, thanks so much Sausage!! xx

And my very talented Pollycraft teamie Jane sent me the most adorable card and prezzies all wrapped in pink gingham tissue paper and ribbon (it was almost a sin to open it!!) Not only did Jane send me the most gorgeous card (Jane is the queen of textured cards and this one has stitching, embossing, felt... love it!!) But also... look what was inside the pink gingham... choccies, flowers, charms, mesh butterflies, buttons and a whole pack of Cute Companions stamps!! Wow Jane I never expected this at all, I am so honoured that you sent me all this on my birthday, thanks so so much!!

And look what goodies I got from my dear friend Joanne who was one of the first blogging friends I made and she is such a sweetheart!! Joanne sent me this beautiful easel card using one of the Little Musings images which I love!! This card is just so gorgeous and it really made me smile because that's what I looked like in my early teens so it kind of made me feel young again!! And Joanne sent me the most enormous envelope of goodies, look at all that purple deliciousness... flowers, ribbons and the most adorable little buttons, and some funky snaps, elegant lace and the most fabulous chipboard album which I can't wait to ink up and decorate!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart Joanne, you are so kind and I really treasure our friendship! xx

And look what gorgeous stash I got from one of my newest Blogging Buddies Lisa!! Oh my word Lisa... your card is just so luxurious!! I just can't stop looking at it and stroking it!! And Lisa also sent me the most amazing prezzies!! I got more stamped images (Stamped image heaven!!) and some gorgeous chipboard stickers which I'm looking to use in Joanne's chipboard album (see I have ideas already!!) and Lisa and I have a little joke between us about teddies... I love them and Lisa is not too keen... so she sent me these little gold teddies as our little joke he he!! And what's in the purple tissue paper?? Well... I'm sworn to secrecy I'm afraid as it's for one of Lisa's DT projects for June... but what I will tell you is I will be wearing it tomorrow and it's in my fave colour teal YUM YUM!! Lisa, I am absolutely thrilled with everything and I look forward to many years getting to know you better and hopefully converting you into loving teddies!! xx

And my very dear friend and Sketch and Stash teamie Lisa sent me this gorgeous card, sorry the photo isn't very good on this one, the image is stamped onto textured card which looks absolutely stunning in real life!! And look at this gorgeous collection of stash which Lisa sent me too, gorgeous papers, gems and embellishments... ooh Lisa I love it so much!! I love emailing Lisa because we have a good chat about magazine competitions, most of which Lisa seems to win LOL!! You are so talented Lisa and such a great friend, thank you so much for everything!! xx

And now onto the goodies which I got from my Best friend Arline. Arline and I met at Uni... neither of us mentioned crafting... then when we'd been friends for a few months she came round to my house and noticed a cross stitch picture in a frame and from there we found out that we both loved crafting... so not only did I gain a best mate but a crafting buddy too, how lucky was that!! So here is the card Arline made me and all of the crafty bits she bought me too... all I can say is YUM YUM YUM!!!

And here are all the gorgeous 'non-crafty' bits I got from her... as I'm her bridesmaid in a few months she got me a few Bridesmaid books (LOL!!) and the most funkiest mini hot water bottle with cover... choccies (YUM!!), stunning earrings, gorgeous perfume, funny socks, cute little bag, adorable teddy, pens, books... just loads of things!! Thanks so much sweetie!! You always buy me too much but I really loves it all!! xx

And what do you get a girl who's had everything for her birthday?? Yep... a box to put it all in!! So here's everything I got for my birthday in this beautiful Forever Friends box bought by Arline!! xx (How luck am I!!)

And look at these stunning cards which I received from my blogging friends...
This stunner is from Arline's mum... also called Arline... so I call her 'Mammy Arline' to avoid confusion lol!! Love the colours and those papers are lush!! Thanks so much Mammy!! xx

And here's an absolutely gorgeous card from my Pollycraft Teamie Joey... wow Joey your colouring is so gorgeous, I couldn't stop stroking your card, thanks so much Joey, love it to pieces!! xx

And look at this adorable card from my Sketch and Stash teamie Chrissie!! Oh wow this image is so funny!! This is more like my sister than me... she was a real madam... me always an angel he he!! Chrissie is the queen of Mo Manning images... I think she has them all he he!! Thanks for a stunning card Chrissie it's really made me smile!! xx

And finally... here is a beautiful card from my pollycraft teamie Sheena! Just look at the design of Sheena's card... isn't it just absolutely gorgeous!! Thanks so much Sheena!! xx

And there you go... wow!! Wasn't I a very luck girl!! I am sat here looking at all my gorgeous cards on the telly wishing that I'd created them all cause they're so lush!!

Oh... and before I forget... I did get cards off my family, OH and Dylan but they were all shop bought and I had money so I could go shopping tomorrow... I had thought Dylan was making me a picture at school but he didn't come out with anything... he didn't have time apparently... too busy making mud pies!! LOL!!

So... that's everything!! I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who sent me cards, prezzies and everyone who has left comments on my blog, you really do make me so pleased to be a blogger!! Oh... and I will be returning comments over the weekend... promise!!

Love Becky xx
