Well, first of all I would like to say a SPECIAL THANK YOU to all of you that sent me a special Birthday email or phone call. They all meant so very much to me and I appreciate you taking the time to send them and to call!
This next card AND special treats are from a very special friend I met online. Lorie Ames! She is so full of inspiration and creativity. If you get a chance, you should definitely check out Lorie's blog . She's got some incredible projects for you to see. Just check out this card!! This birthday bella is too darn cute. And she looks just like me!! HA HA HA I wish I was that thin!! :0) But seriously, look at the close up picture...there's sparkle EVERYWHERE on this card. The balloons, the party hat, the cupcake, her pants and EVEN her shoes have sparkle!! I just LOVE anything that sparkles!! Yes, I am a glitter girl, I've always got glitter on my face! :0) Thank you so much Lorie!
And...here's the one my most crafty Mother-In-Law sent me. Now you don't know crafting until you meet my MIL!! This incredible lady is the absolute craftiest person I know. From decorating every inch of her home to making every gift, card or note the most special. She always makes sure the presentation is just as wonderful as the gift inside. Just look at this card. Every piece of this card is paper pieced!! I know you can't see the shimmer of the gold ribbon and the gold on the basket but in real life this card just shines!! Thanks "Nana" for always remembering me on my special day!
