RAKs from fabulous friends:)

Hello, friends:)

I am overwhelmed by the RAK that I've received!! Most of the cards that I received were for my birthday--and I just cannot thank my friends enough for going out of there way to bless me! 

First up is a card by Cathy M. She is on the ATU team with me--she is sooooooo amazing! LOVE that rocking chair! Very vintage--fab! Hope she wasn't saying that I'm vintage! LOL!
Next, I received this super cute card by Jackie H. She is a friend that crafts with me in my studio. Her card is completely made by her!! I did tell her that we have to work on sentiments--not nice, Jackie:) You'll be my age one of these days! LOL!
Then I received this fabulous card by Kim Kesti--I KNOW! I got a handmade card by Kim!! LOVE it:)
I also received a card from Megan Hoeppner. OH MY! Love her blog too! What a fabulous idea to use up several thickers/alphas! 
My neighbor, Barbara, sent me this beautiful tea cup card--I gave her a tea cup bird feeder for her birthday. So this card is perfect as a TU:} LOVE!
What a surprise it was to find this elegant birthday card in my mailbox--it's from my good friend, Colleen D. She is on the PDCC team with me! LOVE LOVE LOVE that striped paper--not sure you can see how it shines! And the ric rac! OH! LOVE:)
Then I received a huge package from my good friend, Ruby 2 Shoes and her daughter, TinksRuby is on the PDCC team with me as well. And her package was def. unexpected! They sent me some cards and notes, along with a cupcake die, cupcake recipe book, a bookmark, and so many goodies! LOVE LOVE LOVE all the cupcakes! 
This is a note from Tinks--it even had cupcakes on it! LOVE!
My friends, The Ammerman family, gave me a super fun birthday gift, which included a handmade card by their son, Christopher, and a SHOE bag! They know I love love love shoes--esp. heels! Too funny!
**NOTE:: I didn't even notice until now that my font didn't have an apostrophe on their name! OY! 

I'm still going--SO BLESSED to have received all these cards/goodies!!!

Tracey K. {another good friend from the PDCC} sent me this GOOOORGEOUS card! OH MY! I love the papers and the stitching! And that flower--Fab! 
I had another small package with two beautiful cards created by Andrea M. Oh--what a surprise these were! I love how my birthday card is modern and stitched--look at those lines! SOOOO clever! 
And I love this friendship card by Andrea--those colors are just GORGEOUS together--that seam binding makes me drool! LOVE LOVE LOVE
And last but not least, I bought myself a birthday bracelet from my friend's blog/website- Vintage Glam. OH MY! These bracelets are SOOOOOO gorgeous--and I cannot wait to save up more money to get more colors! I wasn't expecting anything but my order--and when I opened up my package--Eryn (the owner and a fabulous friend) had the most amazing package for me. It included a fabric flower wrap with my bracelet and this little necklace as a surprise gift! Made me tear up--I was overwhelmed by the message and how perfect it was for me! Eryn is soooo amazing and super talented and so sweet to send that to me:) LOVE it!

All I can think about is what goes around comes around. Most of the time, people say that when someone does something 'bad'...but it goes both ways. You are one of the sweetest, sincere, most supportive people I know and no WONDER you are showered with love right back at you. Love to you- thank you for being YOU <3
