More Birthday Fun

Met up with my sweet sister-in-law Anabelle the other day for lunch to celebrate my birthday, plus I owed her a birthday lunch too.  I just had to share the beautiful gifts she gave me.  I have a collection of Polish Stoneware, so she gave me a butter knife to add to it.  Love the design.  Then she created the most gorgeous box and put it into a beautifully decorated gift bag along with one of her lovely card creations. 

Look at how beautifully this is embellished!  I just treasure handmade items so much.

Inside the box, Anabelle filled it with some of her favorite vintage items.  I can't wait to create with these!

My Dad's birthday was on Friday, so I created this card for him.  I used K&Co papers, tags, and flower from the Blue Awning and K-ology collections.  I handcut one of the swirls from the patterned paper and added a bit of Ranger Stickles to it, then added a bit of twine to the tag.

And last but not least, this is for Marlou.  She asked me to post a photo of my sweet little guy, Jasper.  I had to snap this picture.  He actually pulled the pillow over and laid his head on it! 

Thanks to everyone who stops by to visit.
