Is my party.....................

and I ll blog cos I want to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hee heee dear reader today I AM 35 years of age!!! Gosh I cannot believe it those 35 years have definitely flown by but you know what? I am looking forward to the next 35 hee heee. And I also know that is all relative, those that are older then me will think I am still a baby while those younger will see me as ancient already. LOL
What a fabulous day I am having firstly the SUNSHINE!! it was glorious today so that put me in a good mood straight away then there were loads of beautiful cards and pressies to be open, beautiful emails and text messages to read and to top it all off Stamp With Us has finally launched today(YIPEEEEE)!!! You so have to go and check out the first challenge, is lovely. I will show you my entry but I think I will have another go as I was quite mojo less working on that card, does that happen to you? sit there surrounded by all the stuff your money can buy and not being able to stick together two layers? hmm yes I thought it did!! oh and I nearly forgot, the Stampin'Up! Mini Catalogue has been launched today as well. Gawd talk about excitement all round.LOL


Not too bad I suppose I would have liked to have some patterned paper on there I think. I love the combo though, Bashful Blue, Rose Red and Certainly Celery, very fresh. The stamp set is one I haven't used in ages called Big Bold Birthday, and the way I went mad with it at on point I thought I will be using all the stamps in the set on one card LOL. So will you be playing with us? I hope to see your entries there.



I want to thank each and of you that has taken the time to make me a card an find my address to send them to me, I had some really nice surprises, I LOVE receiving hand made cards heck I like receiving any cards so thank you. Also an extra special thank you to Carole who not only sent me a beautiful card but she bought me a really lovely Momiji doll ( that I stupidly forgot to photograph, but will do don't worry) and to you Dawn as well for making me that gorgeous notebook, I love it !!! Here's a selection of the GORGEOUS hand made cards I have received (not sure how this is going to work as is the first time I tried it)

I did this in no particular order the program did it for me and I didn't know how to change it, so at the top is Susan's card, then second row 1st from left made by Jo, then Jayne's card, next one is Jenny, gorgeousness from Carole, second row 1st card made by lovely Tara, then my partners in crime Zoe and Natalie sent me this sweet little number along with a well needed key ring( love it ladies, hugs) and the last one but by no means least made by the sweet Alex. And here's Dawn's beautiful duo. I feel so greatful, I really do.

Oh and my work colleagues were happy today as well, I've caught a few of them licking their plates, mmmmm. Sorry about the mammoth post, catch up soon hugs, Monica xxx
