Stampin’ Up! birthday wishes …

It was my birthday last weekend – if you are a regular visitor to my blog you may have seen the surprise my Pink Lady friends arranged for me from Shelli Gardner, founder of Stampin’ Up!

I received lots of lovely birthday cards, but these beautiful handmade cards were amongst my favourites …

… this one by my best friend, Deborah …

The punched hearts have been made using the retired heart to heart punch, which holds a special meaning for me and Debs.  That Stampin’ Up! punch is what brought us together and I am so, so glad it did.  Debs and I hit it off as soon as we met – it’s like we have known each other all our lives, sisters from another mother, and I count myself lucky to know her.

You can see more of Deb’s great projects on her blog Wrightcrafty

… and this card by my friend and upline, Michelle

I love the colours Michelle used, and the new butterfly stamps with co-ordinating punch from Stampin’ Up are just gorgeous.

Michelle also sent me a little present…

So now I have it in black and white I guess, just like Peter Pan, I don’t ever have to grow up!

And I just had to share the card my daughter got for me …

… so elegant and glamorous.

She also had a fantastic cake made for me by her very talented friend, Eli …

… Eli modelled it on the wedding card I made a little while ago

I love the little lily she added for me, and even the font is the same as my blog!

I hope to be back with some more crafting inspiration soon

Thanks for dropping by today
