Some Birthday RAKs!

I seem to be in a creative slump lately, so I don't have much to show of my own work, but I have some amazing cards that were made for me by various friends and family for my birthday, so I'll show those instead! Enjoy!

I smiled when I opened the mail and saw this beautiful card from Amy! I had seen it on her blog, where she said she made it for a friend's birthday. I left her a comment saying it was wonderful and her friend would love it, little knowing that I was the friend she was sending it too! I am so thrilled that she made this for me - I love the pretty colours and beautiful design. Thank you so much, Amy!

My sister-in-law, Wendy made this next card for me. Isn't it fantastic? I love the fold and the embossing and the paper! It's so pretty! She even included an antique button as an embellishment. What a great idea! Thank you, Wendy!

My mother-in-law, Margo made this Groovy Guava card for me using all her new SU! goodies! There's the sticky letter with green micro-beads, the Pretties flower and pearl over scalloped circles and some double-stitched Guava ribbon, all on textured cardstock! That lady has everything! I love this card!!

My friend, Sherri, made this ice cream cone card for me. She's new to stamping - just joined one of my Stamp Clubs this year, and she's loving it! We all laugh about bringing her over to the "dark side" of paper crafting! I was so touched that she made me a hand made birthday card. She even used the double inking technique (two colours on one stamp!). Thank you so much, Sherri!

This final card was made by one of my new friends, and a lady who joined my downline last spring, Laina. I love seeing her excitement about Stampin' Up! She really keeps me motivated and excited about trying new things. It's hard to tell from the photo, but the purple butterfly is raised on dimensionals for a 3-D effect - very pretty! Thank you, Laina!

Thank you all for your birthday wishes and for sharing in my birthday blog candy a few weeks ago. Have a great day!
