Birthday cards & other good stuff!

So I wanted to share all the super cute Birthday cards I have received this week and also a very special thank you card I received from June G... my heart is over-flowing with love right now... so, so, special!! :)

My week started off with this totally cute card from June G:


June was thanking me for the stamps that she received during the The Cat's Pajamas release party. Isn't this cute? And she wrote me a totally sweet note too! Thanks so much June, you are the best! :)

So then I received this totally cute card from Alma:


How friggin' cute is Poochie? Sigh... I just love him! Thank you soooo much for the Birthday card Alma, I love it!! :)


Next little ditty comes from Nancy (aka Happy Stamper Nancy):


Okay Nancy, that owl is just the cutest! And that BG stamp? ROCKIN!! I love it! Where did you get that? I think I am going to need that stamp in my near future! LOL Thank you so much for thinking about me and for making me a card designed just for me (she said this in her card in case you are all wondering... LOL), I love it! :)

Next card comes from my Sis, Pancho:


All I have to say about this is... I love you Pancho!!! xoxoxo

And then, Friday night... my super creative, totally talented friend, Dana, gave me this card:


Here is the inside...


And another inside view...


Does she know me or what? LOL In fact, my birthday present from her was a coffee theme (coffee stamps, coffee paper, coffee twill tape, coffee shimmer spray, etc), it was AWESOME!!! I loved everything Dana! You are truly a wonderful friend!!!!!


So after all the above excitement and VERY happy mail week, I get this in the mail yesterday...


Does this style look familiar? It should... wanna know why? Cause it is a card, made for me, from the one and only... ANNA WIGHT!!! Can you believe it? I just about died! LOL Is she so sweet or what? :)

She also sent me some FAB ribbon to top it off... sigh... such a nice girl that Anna is!! :)

Thank you again for the card Anna, it really topped off my week!! :)


All in all ladies, in spite of a couple bumps in the road with my work & husband, I really did have a FABULOUS birthday week!! Thank you again for all the wonderful cards, they are all very special to me and I truly love EVERY SINGLE ONE!!!

Karrie :)

Happy Birthday

So, today is my big day, yep, the big 3-6, hard to believe it! Nope, not feelin' any older, I'm actually feelin' pretty good, pretty young! Definitely younger than my husband!! LOLOLOL :)

Have a busy day planned today, not sure I will be able to fit in everything I want to, but that's okay. I am on vacation for a week Oct 8th-12th so whatever I don't do for my birthday today I can always do then. Nothing like stretching out a birthday!! Right Pancho??? LOLOL

Party Elf in Da House!!!

Okay, so you guys know that I have a small stamp problem, right? And you all know that I have been obsessed lately with those darn penguin stamps from Memory Box. Well.... I totally blame Anna Wight for this. I am not saying that my entire stamp problem is Anna's fault but the whole penguin thing is. You see, she carries all these adorable stamps in her shop: Sassy & Sweet Crafts and she just sucks me in. Then she has to post all those super cute cards on her BLOG and well heck, I may as well just give her my checkbook and tell her to take monthly withdrawals. I actually think I have a frequent buyer program going on right now with her. LOLOL Uh huh, I mean, if she is going to order one for herself, she may as well order me one too. :)

So in my last order? I got my very own Party Elf. Oh yes, he is sooooo CUTE!! Everyone needs their own Party Elf, right? RIGHT!!!


Details, details...

Stamps: All Memory Box and seriously, if you need your own Party Elf, just go do a little shopping over at Anna's Sassy & Sweet Crafts shoppe, she will hook you up! Right Anna??? LOL

Alright, I am off like the wind Peeps! Have a great one! :)
