It's official!!

Understand Blue readers are truly the nicest people in the universe. Everyone else can quit trying! You probably already knew this about yourselves, but I'd like to present you with a little more evidence. Exhibit A - a BEAUTIFUL anniversary card from my friend Lynne in Canada - look at this!!! AND WHY IN THE WORLD HAVE I NEVER CUTTLEBUGGED AN ENVELOPE?? This is adorable! And I do not hold my inability to get my hands on the dotted embossing folder against dear sweet Lynne!

Exhibit B - a tea/chocolate packet made by my friend Vicki who lives right down the road. She writes "Just wanted you to know I read the blog and copy you like crazy. Loved this one so much I had to make one for you." It's all blue down to even the beautiful TEA!! I love it! Check out the teeny blue flower brads!

Exhibit C - also from Vicki, this adorable stitched bunny card!!! She has this incredible sewing machine that she creates amazing embroidered creations with. It boggles my mind - I have never been able to sew, much less make anything that looks like this! A little early Easter Bunny for all of you today!!

Thank you so much - it really made my day to open my mailbox and see these fabulous gifts from you.

Today's first card from me is a birthday card I made with Just Celebrate. That's the set the teeny elephant is in too. When I got these, I cut the images away from the greetings so that I wasn't bound to those pairings. I almost always do that. I'm picky about my greetings. In this case, I kind of felt like the cake says it all and I didn't want any words on the front of the card. I will stamp Happy Birthday on the inside.

I stamped it with Brilliance Graphite Black, heat set it and colored it with Copic Sketch Markers. I used a Sakura Gellly Roll Clear Star glitter pen to bling up the frosting and the plate. I cuttlebugged the right side of the card and used SU! paper on the left, with that yummy satin ribbon in between.

I'm hoping to produce something blue & gold today.
