My Birthday Cards

I have a few of the cards that I received for my birthday to show you.
The first is from my Mam, if you have been coming to my blog for a while you will know that my Mam did think of giving up card making at one point, I'm so glad that she didn't, her decoupage work is second to none.


This one is from my AMGF Marge all the way from USA such a special lady who helps to keep me sane, believe it or not but Marge doesn't recognise that she is very very talented.


This one is from Toni on my DT she got it spot on with my favourite flower and not only that but she included some vintage postcards for me too, mwoa xx


This one gave me a giggle as when I opened the envelop the bottom owl fell out I new instantly that it was from my friend Pam who is owl crazy, cute.


This one is from Debs my friend who always makes a wonderful card with very good colour choices.

This one is from my Mother-in-law, she has only been crafting for around a year or two.




This one was from a lovely lady, Ursula Tarn, all carefully and skillfully hand stitched.

Jak,
I think you are a well loved lady. The cards are absolutely stunning. Glad you mam stayed crafting and the one from your mom in law is great. Of course because I paper embroider the one from Ursula really touched me. Thanks for sharing your life with us.

They are all wonderful and I will put my hands up and say that I forgot all about your birthday until it was too late to send you a card. LOL

Jak, it's obvious that you are one truly loved lady, as evidenced by all these beautiful handmade cards, but then all who come here often already knew that! Thanks for sharing these. I feel very lucky to be one of your AMGFs!
