But hey enough of the doom and gloom and trying to make sense of life....this is a day of celebration with cake and lots of yummies and time to share some of the gorgeous cards I received from my bloggy buddies
.....who also sent me some ribbon to make this gorgeous sparkly creation
and from my chums at M&S......a voucher for tea for two at an M&S cafe
Aren't they all gorgeous....thank you so much girls....
And a girl has to treat herself for her birthday so my sis and I are taking off to NYC later this month for a much needed girlie holiday.....I love New York....there is no other city like it in the world...we will be pounding those oh so hard New York sidewalks....riding the subway and yellow cab grabbing like native New Yorkers...shopping at Macys late into the night...eating and drinking New York Style in Little Italy and Chinatown and the temptation of those yummy hot dogs every few blocks.....yes I am getting into the lingo already....meeting up again with my lovely Funky Hand teamie Enfys and her lovely hubby Mike and of course I may just find time to pop into Michaels or my favourite stamp store The Ink Pad for a few crafty treats. And am I glad that I haven't yet got round to getting the stash of dollars...the rate of exchange is beginning to look a bit more healthy....but do I wait a little longer in the hope it will get even better or do I go for it now before it crashes and tumbles again....any insider info would be welcome.
Back tomorrow with some more birthday cards and pics from a fun workshop at Simply Create.....lots of laughter and giggles with the nicest crafters from my part of the world.
