A Thank You Message!


Good morning my lovelies!

I just wanted to pop on today and say thank you very very much for all your lovely birthday wishes and cards. I am having a lovely day! The sun is shining and I have had a lovely chat with one of my sisters so far and had lots of Facebook messages!

I managed to get my breakfast in bed and open a few parcels before a mad rush to get off to school. I am treating myself to coffee and some morning telly and then later I off for lunch with some other ladies from the church. How good does it get???

For my birthday I treated myself to a light tent and some more yummy copics. So on your birthday if you had to choose..is it clothes or crafty stash?? Obviously in an ideal world we would love to have both but if you HAD to choose...what would it be??

The little thank you tag is made from grungeboard and grungepaper, distress inks and glimmer mist! So much fun to play about with! I am hoping to try some more grungepaper flowers on my blog soon.

I have used a Hero Arts Cling Stamp and stamped the main shape onto Grungeboard, cut it out and then inked with Distress Inks. The flowers are then stamped a couple of times onto Grungepaper, cut out, inked and then shaped with my fingers . Once you have the desired shape use your heat tool to set the shape! Ta da!! Gorgeous 3D flowers! Thne I have glimmer misted the flowers and added adhesive pearls.

I hope to add this tag to a card soon....so much to do ....so little time!

Thanks again everyone for your lovely Birthday wishes....eeek I am now officially in my mid-thirties!

hugs Judy x

Awh you kept that quiet - Happy, Happy Birthday Judy, ooh never tried grungeboard - sounds interseting and what a luscious effect :D

Craft stash, stash and hmmm, yes more stash - would win EVERY TIME :D. It is getting so bad that everything I look at now converts into "how many ink pads or ribbon could I get get for that" LOL!

Enjoy the rest of your special day xx

kirsticoo said...

Yes, you did keep that quiet Judy and lucky you only being in your mid thirties... I have reached the goal of being 'over forty'!!! Libby loved her birthday card.. she did ask if I had made it and I could have told a little white lie and said yes but I told the truth that I would NEVER have been able to make such a beautiful card...lol...

Your tag is really lovely... Wish I had the time just now to sit and play but the days just seem to be whizzing by.. Enjoy the rest of your birthday..Love Kirsti x

PS - It would probably be craft stuff for me as well!!

Julie said...

Happy Birthday Judy, hope the rest of your day is fab and yes crafty stash wins hands down for me too.

Neenie said...

Happy Birthday, Judy Hope you have a lovely day - enjoy the luxury of being mid-thirties, it'll fly over!! Love the tag, I keep meaning to try out grungeboard and paper but never get around to it. I always buy myself a birthday pressie and prior to being interested in cardmaking, it was a handbag or new Cons but now it is always crafty stash!!! I also manage to spend 3x the cash I get given for my birthday on stash too.x :)

Kathy said...

Happy Birthday dear Judy!!!! I'll be right there in January!! haha
I hope you have the best day today and I don't know what I would go with? Your right it is a tough choice but crafts just might eek past clothes!! haha
Happy birthday again and don't eat too much cake!

Tanya Rudd said...

Happy Birthday! The sun is shining here, as I hope it is there for you. I am in need of clothes, so I would have to choose them for a birthday gift (sigh) but my heart still tells me to go with craft stash stuff.

Have a great day!
Hugs,

Chrissie said...

Happy Birthday Judy, glad to hear it's been such fun so far, hope it gets even better later sweetie!
Not so much of the 'Eeek mid 30's' business please, I passed that over 20 years ago now, so it makes me feel very ancient! lol!

Danielle said...

Dena said...

What!!!??? Your birthday? You didn't even say anything! I'm so sorry I am late in telling you "HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUDY, MY FRIEND". Sounds like you were having a good one!

Of course I would always choose crafts over clothes. I am totally not a shopping person.

Well, sorry I missed it! Love ya girl! Dena

Kat said...

Happy birthday Judy and I hope you have had a lovely day. I have that stamp but I'm sure I could never have made such a gorgeous tag as yours. I just love it. Like most people I think I would go for the craft stash too. I used to love shopping for clothes and possibly if I could afford to do both I still would!! But for now stash comes first lol!

Kat xx

Lilian said...

Happy Happy birthday! Sounds like a perfect day to me! Wishing you lots more birthdays like this!
How hard can it be choosing craft goodies for clothes as presents? lol!

So glad to hear you had a good birthday Judy. Umm, no contest there, would have to be crafty goodies all the way, you don't need clothes to craft ;o) !!!

Love your thank you tag, looks and sounds like you had lots of inky fun making it.

Have a great weekend and I do hope my card reached you OK and on time, I was a bit late sending it - sorry !

Hugs,
