  1. Awwww, so cute and happy card, made me smile!
    Hmmm...... Birthday presents, there are lot and hard to tell one. Okay when I got a precious gold necklace from my hubby as a surprise gift :)

  2. That's an adorable card, love the cute image. Love the way you place the pattern papers.

  3. Oh my gosh, that is one cute pup!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your card is very sweet. Such cute images. And I love your patriotic colors :) Really cute card. My best present? One I can remember is my husband planned a trip for the day. He got our babysitter to watch our baby daughter, and he planned for us to go to Catalina Island for the day. It was a surprise. I only found out where we were going when we got to the ticket booth. It was such a fun surprise...until I got sea sick, and it lasted all day, so it was a bit difficult. But I felt better on the trip back because I stood at the front of the boat, with the wind on me, watching the horizon. I finally felt better. Now I take Bonine so I won't feel horrible :)

  4. Such a cute card. Great coloring.
    I love all my birthday presents.

  16. What a lovely card Meghan! And Maddie is adorable - such a cute puppy! It's hard for me to choose a favourite birthday present but one of the best birthday outings was when Len booked us on a VIP Safari day at Longleat. I actually got to be the very first person (other than staff) to gently stroke the nose of a baby giraffe when it decided to peek into the jeep we were being driven around in - which is a memory locked in my heart forever.

  17. PS. The giraffe was named Henry - which is Len's middle name. Seemed like serendipity! x
