And with April comes what I consider one of my favorite things...birthday cards! I'm not as good at getting them out as I would like to be, but I am blessed by those with a gift for remembering me...and so humbled that someone would take the time...so here are a few of the gifts I've received in my mail box this week! (all from my SBS sisters across the ocean!)
From Natalie in West Yorkshire, UK:
I love hedgehog stamp images...but a hedgehog with yellow roses and a straw hat is just too precious! The DP is all different pieces....gives it so much texture and life...I LOVE texture! And primas! I love primas!
From Suzanne with an 'e' :) in Bristol, UK:
So adorable! Love her toes! And the textures! and the rain dots! She is all around sweet! The butterfly DP makes me wish for spring even more! Love her colors and braids, too! and more primas!
From Louise "Lulu" in Essex, UK
What a unique and lovely card, it's 8" long! Each of the tiny flowers is a separate embellishment...and on the dress it's just so classy.... I love the rub on sentiment on the ribbon with the buckle as well! What a great sketch!! And you can't really see it but the frame around the dress sparkles! So neat! Again, I LOVE TEXTURE!
From Katie in WalesI am SO addicted to the Tilda images...and this sweet-cheeked little one is darling! The flowers (ahhhhh....flowers!) of the DP match her little string of blossoms and the little prima and button, with the ribbon to bring all the colors together, make it perfect! I have GOT to get that cuttle bug out more!!! (like TODAY!)
EDITED TO ADD: My birthday IS next week!! I was just saying thanks early! No worries! I celebrate all of April....it's good to be alive :)
Thank you so much sisters! You gladden a winter-weary heart!
