Happy Friday!

So... I didn't share my birthday when it rolled around. I am only mentioning it now to share a couple of lovely homemade cards I received. This one was created by my friend, Diane. She is the dear family friend that taught me how to cross-stitch when I was younger. I love it!

And Veronica gave me this beautiful card.  (If you missed the Christmas cards she made for us in 2014, you may see them here.)

This was the front. (I could not decide on a favorite animal the first time I was asked - my reply to the question was, "I like frogs." I must say, I love Veronica's frogs.)

This was inside the card.

And this sweet sunflower decorated the back of the card.

As if that were not spoiled enough, Veronica also made this sweet little Valentine for me.

This was the front.

And this was inside.  Entirely too sweet! Thank you, Veronica!

It is Friday and my eldest is headed home from school to spend Spring Break with us. I can barely wait!  I'm not sure how much stitching I will accomplish, but I am planning to link up with International Hermit & Stitch Weekend (IHSW), if it's not too late. (You may find information about it here and the blogs linking up this week are listed here.)

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Birthday!
You are very lucky to get such beautiful cards. The frog is charming, and maybe he is really a PRINCE!

Happy Belated Birthday, Renee! Those cards are really sweet. Enjoy your oldest's spring break visit. I'm sure you can catch up on your stitching after spring break.

What wonderful cards! How fortunately to have friends who do cards. I used to, and now everything's in storage, rotting in the heat of SoAZ, no doubt. =) But maybe someday I'll have time, or make time one day a week. If I organize my life differently. LOL I hope you had a lovely birthday, and that the coming week is filled with great things for your family.

Very happy birthday wishes (albeit, obviously now very belated!). Your cards are so lovely. Veronica should send some of her cards to Hallmark or Carlton - I'll bet they'd love to have her design for them.
