It's My Day ...

Hi Everybody,

These are some of the cards that I got for my Birthday today ... and they are all arranged on top of my TV.

Griff is taking me out for dinner this evening to our favorite restaurant and I can tell you now I will be having a fillet steak .... oh!  I can almost smell it cooking !!

But I wanted to show you some beautiful cards that have been Hand made for me   by ladies who visit Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls and Card Making Magic.


This gorgeous card is 
Created by Anne Britton
and is lovely in shades of turquoise. 

The flowers have been arranged along the bottom and it is really very pretty.  Anne also bought me the flowers in the centre of the picture above.
I am very happy and honored that they have taken the time from their busy day to make me a card and send it.


The wonderful card in shades of pink is 
created by Kim Heginbotham 
and was sent in the post.


It is much appreciated ladies so "Thank You" to you both.

Another lovely thing to happen today was a very unexpected phone call from another lady who visits my pages.

This was from Ireland and a lady named Cepta. .... and she was the first person ever to add a photo to my Gallery pages and tell me about how she made it.

I am going now to enjoy the rest f my day and get ready to go out later ... and so far it has been a day of surprises.

Don't forget that tomorrow sees the start of the "Friday Freebie"  so add a comment at the bottom of the post if you would like to have the card shown on tomorrows post. 

I will select a winner from those that comment and add the name in the morning.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  37. Happy Birthday Christina. Hope you've had a lovely day and that the steak turns out to be all you anticipated. Well done to those ladies who sent the cards-I think it's a bit daunting to send a card to you!!! I'd make loads and then try to choose one that seemed half good enough!!
    Take care, Jan x
