I'm utterly overwhelmed................

..............by the kindness and generosity of my blogland friends.

I have never received so many Birthday cards and greetings and I was lost for words as I opened my post and e.mails today...............and it's not often that I am left speechless and close to tears realising just how kind people are.

So this is a huge thank you to everyone and I have tried to show some of the cards received and please do not be offended if you can't see yours, I have done my best to squeeze as many as possible into these two pictures but know some are missing, but that doesn't mean that they are not all equally special to me.


We had a barbie in the beautiful weather yesterday for hubby's Birthday and then a special Birthday tea tonight as it is also our Grandsons Birthday today.....what a wonderful present he was..............then Wednesday one of our Granddaughters celebrates her Birthday so we are packing them in this week.

Every single card I have received is beautiful in it's own special way and I love each and every one of them...................and I even got a few of my own cards...........I have to leave a basket of 'available' cards for the family to select to send me...........no point in them buying from the High Street. Plus I have some new crafty stash so itching to get my mitts inky and creating.

Have a good day everyone and again my thanks to you all.

  2. Wish I'd known, I'd have sent one too. It was my birthday yesterday too, but I was very quiet (by choice) and it was too hot to do anything anyway! Hope you have a lovely day.
