Birthday RAKs

I received so many wonderful cards for my birthday last week and just wanted to share them with you.

The first picture is a wonderful gift I received from my DDSS (demo secret sister on SCS). She sent me a great altered box filled with all kinds of fun stuff - a bag of candy corn topped with a cute witch bag topper, some Halloween pens in the spider pencil/pen holder, a purse "nugget" holder made from the scallop punch, a ghost cookie cutter, and a 2-5-7-10 bag filled with ribbon, chipboard pieces, and some other fun Halloween goodies. Thanks so much to my big sis! What a great gift! And perfect timing too - I received it the day before my birthday.

This "Special Delivery" card was the first one I received from my big sis. It wasn't specifically a birthday card, but I wanted to share it as well. Such a fun image and great coloring! I love the little tug boat carrying all of the packages.

This "Make a Wish" card was from Christine, aka photobug. She said she adapted the card from Kristina Werner (starofmay). Love the bright colors on this one! Purely Pomegranate is one of my favorite colors, so it was fun seeing it paired up this way.

I loved the soft colors on this card from Debbie, aka Twinsstamper. Print Pattern was the perfect background to the card. Great 2-step stamping on it too!

This fun buckle card was from shopgirl. She had a little different take on the buckle than others I've seen. Instead of cutting off part of the front, it is a complete card front and the buckle just wraps around to keep it closed. Great idea! I loved the color combo and the resist technique on the butterfly panel too.

Laurel, aka lklinge, sent this pumpkin card. I love the little pumpkin cart, and the color combo is perfect for a fall birthday!

I loved the color combo on this cheerful card from Kathy, aka scrapkathy. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with pink and black together! I also loved how the birthday images are stamped behind the words on the tags.

I received my first birthday card from Nana2ajj - almost a whole week early! This girl was on the ball! I love the spectrum ink on this card and how the trees take a background to that great elephant image. (If you can see the small water spot on the front of this card, please know that it didn't come that way. I was so irritated with myself when I realized I had gotten a little drop on the card front after just opening it.)

And last but not least is this card from Kudzu. The Prints DSP is one of my favorites, and I love the Groovy Guava and Chocolate Chip color combo. (Note to self - get some of the Guava PDSP during the November paper special!)

Thanks so much to all of the birthday babes from the DDSS! It was fun to get so much "happy" mail during my birthday.
