A Great Birthday...

Last Sunday was my birthday, and, being the last Sunday of the month, it was also my upline's team meeting.  Everyone had a card for me, Jeanne gave me a gift (Warm Vanilla Sugar shower gel & lotions from Bath & Body Works - love that place!), and Sofia brought the most yummy gluten free red velvet cupcakes from Sprinkes for our snack.  The frosting alone was to die for!

I thought I'd share the cards with you (sorry, I'm not sharing the Bath & Body Works stuff, and those cupcakes are long gone...)  :)

The first card I got was from Marianne:


Then I got this one from Sofia.  We're doing Easter cards at my stamp camp on Friday, and I'm stealing Sofia's card to share with my stampers.  I did add the scallop oval with sentiment to her original card.  Her card features a cool fold that you can hopefully see in the photo:


Here's the card from Jeanne with the pretty watercoloring:


Thank you, ladies, for making my birthday extra special!  Oh, and did you notice?  Hopefully my pictures look a little better.  I used my new portable photo studio that my DH got me for my birthday.  Still need to mess with it a bit, but the first time out, I think they turned out pretty good (and yes, once again, it was night when I was photographing the cards, but now it won't matter).  Have a great week!
