Last of the birthday RAKs

I have had such a good birthday in terms of cards. I've never gotten this many for one birthday and they've all been wonderful cards! Thank you so much to each of you who took the time to send a card to me. It really brightened my day(s)!

These are the cards that arrived while I was in Salt Lake City. The first card is from Donna Baker. I absolutely love the bright spring feeling of this card. The paisley background looks SO good, that I keep feeling it to see if the texture I can SEE can also be felt. Also love the primas layered with the brad. Beautiful, Donna! Hop over to Donna's blog and check out her other creations. While you're there, comment for some blog candy that she's got going on right now. :)

The next card and goodies are from Justine Wogsland. She's my upline's upline and she is so fun! She sent me this adorable card, a stamp that says, "Never underestimate the power of a woman on caffeine!" and a post-it pad with the sage advice to "Put on your big girl panties and deal with it!" She makes so many cute creations that can be seen in her SCS gallery. Thanks for thinking of me Justine!!!
This third card is from Lauri Rybarczyk. I love how she combined the patterned paper with stamping and that giant polka dot brad is just wonderful. She also has a blog with very cute creations on it that you should check out. AND, she too has blog candy up for grabs right now.
And last, but CERTAINLY not least, is a beautiful card from Jeanine Eckert. This is the same Jeanine you see mentioned time and again in my blog. She's my very good friend, traveling buddy, and upline. It's getting to the point where we've known each other for a long time, and we just have such good times when we're together. She gave me this card as we were on our way to the airport for Salt Lake City this past weekend to celebrate my birthday (and her half-birthday) with some stamping girl time. I love the patterned papers she used as well as the big panel of "cracked glass" over the Petal Prints flowers. It's beautiful in real life, although I'm afraid my photo isn't doint it the justice it deserves. If you haven't already, check out Jeanine's blog for more of her beautiful creations.
Thanks again to each of you who took the time to send me birthday wishes!!
