Blessed in Abundance!

My birthday was on Christmas Eve.  If you wondered, yep, it usually sucks! LOL  This year though was great.  My hubby surprised me with a dozen roses and the BIG pack of Prisma Pencils.  And a card about how much he loved me and that I was his best friend.  Tear, did I get so lucky?!?  And if that wasn't sweet enough already, he even threw in two 12X12 paper pads because he said I didn't have enough whimsical paper.  I guess he does pay attention!  What a sweetie!

I won this stash over at Jacque's blog last month too!

I joined Paper Craft Planet (PCP), this year and I was totally overwhelmed at the generosity of those girls over there.  And one in particular, my Secret Pal.  I received a card almost every day of the month for my birthday.  They came from all over the world and it was so fun to see who it was and where they were from.  I was totally inspired to jump on the bandwagon and return the blessing.  It was the most birthday cards I've EVER received and they are still hanging up so I can continue to enjoy them a bit longer.

Thank you so much for these beautiful creations!  I couldn't post a picture of every one but they are all so gorgeous.

I'll be posting all the fun things my Secret Pal sent me in another post this week.  It's too much to try do all together!

Thanks to all the girls from Feline Playful for joining my blog too!  It's great to see you here and I'm enjoying popping around to ya'lls blogs too.

Hugs - Jen
