Wonderful Handmade Birthday Cards from my Friends.

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for dropping by.  Today I have some beautiful works of art to share with you, none of which are made by me but which I was lucky enough to receive for my birthday last week from my lovely crafting friends.  I have got to know all of them either through Blogland or Twitter and I consider myself privileged to have met them all in real life too.  They are all very talented and if you click on each name you will be taken to their blogs which are all a pleasure to visit.  Between them they have covered a myriad of techniques and styles which I know are going to give me endless inspiration as well as the sheer pleasure of having them in my box of artwork treasures to revisit often.


(such a shame Royal Mail were a bit rough with Hazel's gorgeous card because the beautiful UTEE embellishment on the front had obviously been crushed.  The card is still a stunner though)

and Hazel's card came through the post in this fabulous Mail Art envelope.  This is the front

 and this is the back.




and this gorgeous ATC & Moo were included with Julie Ann's beautiful card. 



So there you have them, my beautiful and very much appreciated cards.  I don't go in for a big fuss on my birthdays these days but do love to receive cards so this year I count myself very spoiled, lol!

I'll be back with another post of a project of my own before the weekend,  I hope you can drop by again then.

Lesley  Xx
