Happy Birthday to me..

I was lucky enough to receive some fabulous hand crafted birthday cards today, as well as a bunch of beautiful shop-bought ones too..
Here are the hand made ones from my lovely talented crafty friends - thank you all for making the day special.

 lol! ok, I'll share them...
 here they all are laid out in the hall...

now for some close ups.

and, last but not least, left - Hazel  and right, Lin.
love how Hazel's used the bird on a map, and simply love all Lin's layering.








I think you'll agree, these are all fantastic, thank you all so much!   I may just give up making cards completely myself....
