some people are so darn sweet

Since Duke went and blabbed yesterday about my birthday, I'll tell you today about a couple really sweet people who helped make the day special.

First there is my bestest daughter Amanda. She sent me the cutest card.
Amanda always picks Snoopy cards. So I was loving this card from the beginning, then I opened it up and...
Snoopy came sliding out of the mailbox. Now how cute is that?

I also got this adorable card from my friend Debbie
Then look what she put inside
This is sitting right on my desk, but it's too cute to put a drink on.

Hey, you're milkin' this birthday thing pretty good. (Not that I really blame you, of course.)

Jen said...

What cute cards! Happy birthday girl (I know I'm a day late, but it's okay 'cause I'm a dollar short ;o)

Grampy said...

Glad you had a good Birthday Ann. Time sure does fly. 48 is young. You have to watch out for the big 50. It sneaks right up on you. Love your cards. The coaster is also precious.
Have a good day.

DK Miller said...

Looks like a nice birthday and you got some lovely cards!

Me-Me King said...

For me, sometimes I get so caught up in the card, I forget there is a gift attached.

Love the coaster!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Ann, Snoopy cards are my favorites I just love him and Woodstock :) Happy Birthday again and it sounds as if you had a wonderful time. The cards are adorable and the Duke coaster is a treasure.

Jude said...

Sorry I missed your birthday, but it sounds like you had a Happy one without me. Had to catch up on the Duke photo's and his baby one is adorable. I also loved the one of you contemplating life and now I have to go find me one of those Westie coasters.

Ann said...

Beaded tail, the coaster is just as cute as Duke only not as fluffy :)

Alterity Button Jewelry thanks

FishHawk hey why not, I need more milk in my diet :)

Jen LOL want me to send you a buck? then you'll only be late. Thanks so much

Grampy my mother used to always tell me that once you finish school the years fly by and she wasn't kidding. 50 is getting dangerously close :)

DK Miller. I sure did, such sweethearts they are for sending them

Me-Me I love the cards and I always go for them first. But you gotta love it when something falls out of one

Poetic Shutterbug Snoopy and Woodstock are the cutest. How could I not love them, I grew up with those guys

Jude I should ask my friend where she got that, I could pick up some more

Anna said...

I'm glad you got some nice cards for your birthday. Really cute coaster; the dog looks like Duke.
Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my yellow earrings for MYM. It shows that you really looked closely at the earrings if you noticed the little spirals at the bottom. Making beaded earrings is fun, but one of the problems is holding the beads together. I don't have enough sterling silver hatpins with balled-tips. They are expensive. I use genuine sterling silver wire that I "pulled" (= pulled thicker wire through a series of smaller and smaller holes to make thinner wire) myself at a silver-smithing course. There are different ways of making stops instead of using balled-tips; one of them is just curling these little spirals.
Good comments inspire better writing. I should probably mention something about these spirals in one of my posts.

Hugs,
Anna

Nessa said...

Happy belated birthday Ann! You're a wonderful person with a great sense of humor :D

gayle said...

Hope you had a great birthday Ann!!Isn't it funny how a card can be worth more than an expensive present!!

Ann said...

Anna, I'll take your word for it, I have no idea how to make jewelry. Wish i did. As for comments, sometimes I get ideas for posts by reading what people write.

Nessa thank you very much

Gayle thanks and you're right cards are wonderful.
