Birthday wishes and I'm a Winner....

Good morning friends.... well it's another year older for me today, as it's my birthday.... and I have received some wonderful birthday cards and gifts from my stamping and blogging friends, which I'll be sharing with you in this post

Also.... the dry spell has broken... yayyyyy   I won the challenge over at The Paperlane Challenge blog with my Molly and George card... woohooooooooo, what an awesome birthday gift that was.  Thanks so much Paperlane!

My first birthday card is a double display card from Paola - isn't this gorgeous ? Thanks so much Paola for this awesome card and gifts...wow!  Paola is my "online" teacher-friend... I seriously need some lessons to master those folds Paola.  Paola's talent is well known amongst our stamping community in SA... and for those who don't know, she's on the Magnolia International DT too...  x

A beautiful card from my blogfriend Lins in Belgium - I love this nestie so much that I just had to order it from Paola.  Beautiful work Lins. Thanks ever so much, also for the lovely stamped images. x


And I just love this easel card from my stamping friend Debbie... Beautiful use of nesties, punches and colour Debbie... wow!  My favourite... pink!  Such a gorgeous stamp... So kind of you to think of me and thanks too for the paper and doilies. x

A beautiful card from Tessa and Anke from Holland. Just love this.  What a wonderful surprise this was. Thanks so much ladies... wow. What a stunning dragonfly die that is. xx

Isn't this card gorgeous too ? You know me, love my Tilda's and this one from my friend Rene is just too cute for words.  Lovely kraft card, which has been distressed around the edges. Lovely use of flowers in the corner.  Thanks so much for the beautiful scarf too Rene... love it! x

I love showcasing cards sent to me by my crafting friends and appreciate you popping by to share in their beauty with me today. 

I'm off to put in a day's work.  Will catch up with you all later.  Happy Birthday to anyone else having a birthday today!  Tons of hugs, Sharon x
