A few RAKS to share

A few days ago I posted that February is very busy for our family with birthdays and an anniversary - well today is my birthday, so I get to share some of the beautiful RAKS that have made their way to my home!!  :)  The one above is from my wonderful and very talented mother!!!!  Didn't she do an amazing job with this card!!!!  LOVE YOU MUM!!!!!  :)

Next came this gorgeous card from my dear, sweet friend Pam!!  I just love the beautiful blues along withe the neutral tones and the over stamped image!!  Thank you so much Pam - I love it!!!!  :)

And this one comes from my friend and fellow Brisbaneite, Liz Webber!  Just look at this beautiful, rich and elegant card (love the pearl flowers!!!).  Thank you so much Liz, it's absolutely gorgeous!!!

I've had a fairly relaxed kind of day with a little shopping thrown in!  :)  The big excitement was finding out that I'm going to see WICKED in a couple of weeks!!!  ***SQUEAL***  Even better, we are going the night of our wedding anniversary!!  I hear the play is AWESOME!!!!!

Here's a funny story for you - my hubby says to me a few days ago "can you leave some craft stuff out on Wednesday?" - "Um, why??"........"the kids and I want to make you a card, so if you can leave some pre-cut bits out that would help".  OoooooK.  So I basically cut everything out, sentiment panel, spellbinders, punched border, lay out ribbon.  Too late Wednesday night he remembers..... "Ooops - forgot to make your card!"  GROAN!!!!  Needless to say, look out for a birthday card being posted here in the near future!!!!

Well that's all I have for you today, thanks for visiting!!  :)

Happy Birthday Kathy! Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration. Can't wait to see the card your kids put together - maybe they could get your mom to help. Her card and the others were gorgeous.

Happy Birthday Kathy. I see you uploaded some cards from family and friends. I'm glad yours got to you in time. I sent it early to make sure. I thought you'd like the shades of blue. My DH and son were supposed to do that also 2 x and I don't believe they ever did make a card. Have a great time at the show Kathy. Love ya my birthday girl!! P.S. Any new stamping supplies for b/day? Must always ask that question. You'd think we all had enough by now; but, we don't!
