Birthday Goodies

Good morning - more snow for us here. I love it but DH hates it - he sees it only from a driving perspective so it's just a nuisance to him! Anyway, it's my birthday today - I'm 63 and I can hardly believe it as I really don't feel that old - and I want to share with you my birthday goodies.

For once DH knew exactly what to get me because now that I'm crafting he picks up the vibes as he follows me round the craft shops. So, yippee, I now have a lovely collection of Sheena Douglass stamps, and a set of Rock a Blocks to put them on - hopefully this will save me hours of cutting out kling-on, a really horrible job. There's also some Perfect Pearls, some small paper packs, including Woodland Folk and Festive Frolics from Papermania - gorgeous papers - and a really lovely pack from Paper Cellar which I believe came from Tescos! The book is entitled 'Word for Every Occasion' by Judith Wibberley, and it really does have verses and sentiments to fit almost any situation. I really appreciate this as I'm always looking for sentiments that I can print out myself. Last, but not least, is a pack of DVD cases for me to store the new stamps in - a great idea I got from Kelli of Kelli's Table Scraps.

I'm off to have a nice cup of tea and then I've a card to photograph, another to finish and ditto, a card to make for my Auntie Millie's 86th birthday - maybe I'll use one of these new Sheena Douglass stamps. Oh, yes, must find time to snoop around the workdesks I've not managed so far : )

Bye for now,

A very, very Happy Birthday, Elizabeth, and in the words of Bruce Forsyth, "Didn't you do well!" Your hubby is very savvy - I have to write down what I want from Mr H - he never comes to craft shops. Can't wait to see what you get up to with the new stash. Have a great day, hugs Hx

Happy birthday, Elizabeth, you kept that quiet!!!
What a lovely lot of pressies you received, your Husband has been attentive to what you've been doing. I have to buy things and ask mine if he'd like them for pressies!!!!
Keep warm in all this snow and have a lovely time with all your goodies.
Hugs Lisax
