Thankful

Last Saturday it was my birthday.  And I am so thankful  for all the lovely cards, birthday wishes and gifts.
The photos are not perfect due  to the cloudy and rainy days we are having here...  But to give you an idea I am sharing the cards  and part of the gifts I received:
Here is a part of the gifts.  Ros spoilt me rotten with a gorgeous wallet,  embellishments and typical British sweet treats.  My sister Jacqueline gave me  two Mason jars for summer drinks,  gorgeous quilt fabrics and  a fab gift box covered in fabric:




And Ros also sent this stunning card.  She knows how much I love stars and these colors



From my eldest sister Ingrid  she doesn´t have a blog account  but she is a creative genius :)



A gem from M@rjan;  I fell in love with the design and the flowers



Marit sent me this beauty along  with gorgeous papers and embellishments

Lift Challenge #89

Hello!
It took a lot of time and effort and it paid off... After months of studying I am so happy  that I finished my exam with good results! There is more time now for papercrafting,  cooking, gardening and blogging.  And learning more about quilting:)  I will never ever be bored.  In fact; there will never be enough time  to do all things I want to do and learn!
 It also means that I have time to play along in the current Lift Challenge. We're supposed to lift this card:



And I came up with this:



All papers and die cuts are  from the new card kit from Bij Oma Dee Bright and happy:)
