Birthday Thanks

Yesterday at the Dome I was given this fabulous card from Emma. She used distress stains for the background and little did she know that the stamp she's used is from the very first LP plate I ever bought!! 

Just look at that fantastic head gear!!!

Now for those of you who don't know, we have a bit of an issue going on with PINK or should I say, minus green and flowers. Knowing this Leandra kindly made me a tag with an orange and minus green colour combo and a flower, I think it was intentional!! Oh, and by the way, I have no idea what the significance of the 4 and 3 are!!! Seriously, thank you, it's lovely.

Also at the show Gillian gave me a gorgeous tag, again with an LP image together with the LP 21 stamp plate which happened to be next on my list after using it at the LB weekend classes.

Yesterday at the show, Darcy gave me this beautiful card. She has stitched the paper and her handwriting inside is stunning.

And this was also given to me at the show and made by the lovely Linda (aka glamgran).  Now Linda always sticks up for me on Twitter when flowers and pink are involved so she decided to turn the tables and make this fun card and inside it said, are there enough flowers for you?

And this fabulous grungy card and tag book are from my mate Chris whom I have know for quite a long time now!!

Inside the tag book are lots of blanks of different varieties of surfaces and bless her, she's put a post it note on the back of each one letting me know what they all are.  But that front cover is totally amazing.

And this one came through the post earlier in the week from my lovely twitter friend, Helen.  She does some fab journal pages.

And this is the inside, gorgeous isn't it and fabulous colours.

The lovely Lin had been sneaky too, although she posted this absolutely gorgeous tag card, again using an LP image with all those fantastic gems, she had arranged to leave a gift voucher for me at the PA stand, thanks Lin, came in very handy when I got to the till y'day!!

And another fabulous card that came in the post this morning from another lovely Twitter friend, Kirsten.  So simple but very striking - gorgeous.

And the final one brought by the postie today was from my mate Burn who I've known for such a long time through blogland, but not actually met yet!!

And this digital masterpiece is from another Twitter friend, Massofhair, absolutely stunning isn't it.

So many thanks to each and every one of you for making my day that bit more special and also to everyone who left a message on Twitter for me this morning, my timeline was buzzing - awesome!!!

Of course, I was lucky enough to see Emma's stunning card in the flesh, so to speak and it is truly gorgeous. Lots of other beautiful makes, each one fabulous for different reasons. Knowing what I am like with handcrafted cards, etc., I can well imagine how these will be treasured.

Glad you had a lovely day Sam.
