all together now...Happy Birthday to me

Good morning everyone I hope your all well...ok now all together now Happy Birthday to me.............yes its here Im another year older and have the wrinkles and saggy bits to prove it...thank you so so much to Sue, Tilly and the lovely Naomi (Mad Moose) for the beautiful cards you sent me, they made me smile and feel very special, thank you so much ladies you made my day...I learnt a lesson this week never ask your Daughter is she needs anything when your going to Town for a mooch, I got a whole huge list and spent all day getting them so didnt get anything for me lol, but never mind I enjoyed the mooch around Town, just getting out and about was lovely, I got a nice suprise last night my lovely Phil came home to spend today with me so I wouldnt be on my own...all together now aaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwww, hes a sweetie isnt he, I dont know what we are doing probably not much except out to lunch but that is more than enough...right now onto my card for today which is for the Bunny Zoe's Crafts DT using a fabulous new The Greeting Farm set called Hoo Love you...isnt this owl a real cutie, I coloured it with distress inks and used a bit of glitter...well its my Birthday and Im allowed to put glitter on my owl if I want arent I, the sentiment and the leaf stamp are part of the set and theres more sentiments and two more owls to use too...can you have a green owl lol...well I have anyway...the lush papers (the back one is velvet embossed are from the fantastic Kaisercraft Blea & Ivy 6.5x6.5 paper pad, I love this pad, the colours are lush..., I used one of the brand new Nellie Snellen 9cm paper frames (doilies) would you believe these are £1.25 for 12...I finished with a ribbon and one of the Prima Audrey Rose-Snow flowers...its an unusual card for me isnt it, but I really enjoyed putting these bright yummy colours together even if there was only a teeny bit of colouring lol...the fabulous sketch I used is from Mojo Monday (love their sketches dont you), Im also entering it for the DYSU challenge and Moving along with the times challenge too...well Im off to get my warpaint on, Im at that age when I wont put the bin out without it let alone go out ...whatever your up to today have a fabulous one

Shirley Kabeary said...

You are a blessing to me Mina, Happy Birthday! I can't let this day go by without telling you how special you are to me...half way across the world and you don't even know me but you are a bright spot in my day. I have followed your blog daily for at least a couple of years now and I feel so very bad that I have not left comments. I've had a really tough time and I'll spare you the details but you have unknowingly been a part of what has kept me going. Scrapbooking and cardmaking have been my escape from sadness and worry. I admit I've been much more of a collector than crafter because of time and energy shortage, but the dream is always there of being able to sit down and lose myself in stamping and colouring. To see what you can do with paper, ink and brush gives me great hope and inspiration. You are an amazingly talented artist...your way with distress inks is incredibly beautiful!!! I adore the images from the companies you are designing for as well so your blog takes me to other places that fill my head with more happy thoughts. And just so you know that you are more than meeting your role as a designer, I have done some on-line shopping from your companies. The packages that appear in my mailbox also brighten my day. So, Mina, please know that I value your work immensely. I come home from work, pretty worn out most days, and plunk down in front of my computer to check out a few blogs. Yours is always first!! And it's not only your artistry that I enjoy, but your stories as well. Way over here in Alberta, Canada, I'm far removed from the British and Irish expressions you blog with and it makes me smile because they are so descriptive and they remind me of conversations with my relatives who came to Canada many years ago. You have a lovely sense of humour and it's apparent from the things you write that you are a lovely person as well. It made me sad to think that your birthday is not a special day for you...that your Grandma's death has made it cloudy. I wish that you could see the event as a passing on of her legacy to you...that in some way God has entrusted you to carry on some of her dreams. So please hold your head up and take in a big breath of life on your birthday. Please know that you are very special to someone who knows only such a teeny bit of you. To those whose lives you touch every day as Daughter, Wife, Mom and friend, you must be an absolute treasure!! I wish you every Blessing on your Birthday, MIna. May God surround you in his grace and love and inspire you to create even more beautiful things. Happy Birthday and Thank You. You are precious. Hugs, Shirley Kabeary.
