Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday to me! Well, my birthday has come and gone but I would like to share some photos of what I received from friends. My birthday was on Monday but I didn't do any celebrating at all. I felt so exhausted for some reason and I was as cranky as heck. I've never liked celebrating my birthday and it doesn't have anything to do with aging. I think it goes back to my childhood when my birthday was postponed because it was back to school and everyone was so busy. I guess I learned at a young age it wasn't an important day. Anyhow, below you can see some of the lovely cards I received from friends around the world.

This is a handmade card I received from my friend Claudia in Germany. I think it is so beautiful! She always makes such beautiful cards and also sells some if anyone is interested.

This gorgeous card was made by my dearest friend Rosita from Finland. Her cards are always such works of art and I cherish them.

Another lovely handmade card from my friend Susi in Austria. It is so adorable using one of my favourite stamp lines, Magnolia. I also love the colours Susi choose, so cheerful.

One of my co-workers Veronique surprised me with this sweet bath set.

My friend from Germany Claudia also gave me this pretty stationary set and embellishments for crafting.

My great friend Nicole from USA gave me some nice stationary sets as well, a jewellery set of earrings and necklace and a nice flower bag.

My friend Judy from England sent me this cute Hello Kitty stationary and some stickers.

My dear friend Marjolijn sent me these lovely items from Holland which I love.

My dearest friend Lone sent me some pretty lighthouse stationary, pretty beads of owls and Matryoshka dolls and some crafting supplies.

Along with her gorgeous handmade card Rosita also sent me a Magnolia stamp, some pretty address labels she made and a pretty fall printed cloth.

One of my bestest friends Molly from USA gave me a pretty rock paperweight, a cat ringholder, a gorgeous shopping bag, recipe cards, crafting stickers and a car air freshner from Yankee candle.

Jeffrey, Noah and the cats gave me some handmade soaps that smell so nice and two novels. They also spoiled me with a pizza dinner and cake.

Thanks to all of my wonderful friends, Jeffrey, Noah and the cats for spoiling me on my birthday. It was so greatly appreciated although I was grumpy. See you soon. :)
