Happy Birthday Cards

Happy Birthday To ME!
Happy 4th of July Friends - It's my birthday.
 I have to say that it is SERIOUSLY FUN having your birthday on the 4th of July.  First up ....... RARELY does anyone forget your birthday!  You always get the day off work and the weather (typically) is GORGEOUS!  The down side is not being able to share the day with my kids and little people.  (They live in Wisconsin/Missouri and we live in Arizona)  But I will skype them today and connect for some fun birthday wishes over the internet.  My share today (and the next couple of days) will be some of the birthday cards I received from my good friends - so LET'S GET THIS BIRTHDAY PARTY STARTED..........
First up is from my GOOD GOOD Friend Debbie.  She made me this GORGEOUS card!  She used the new "Apothecary Accents Framelits" dies to create her Happy Birthday wish and some of the new "Floral District" DSP.
But the real WOW FACTOR on this card is the BEAUTIFUL water-coloring she did on the top panel of her card.  She used water-color paper and created a beautiful pattern by using her stamp set and ink pads alongs with some water and created a beautiful addition to this (already) beautiful card.  OH SO PRETTY Debbie.....  LOVE YOUR CARD Girlfriend!
Next up is a FUN LITTLE card that my FU Buddy Ann made.  This was one of the first birthday cards I received this year and Ann KICKED it off in real style for me.  The only thing I love more than a PINK a serious Red - White and Blue card.  Ann......You KNOCKED this out of the park!
Ann created a gate fold card that swings open to reveal a fabulous little birthday wish to me - THANK YOU ANN for your beautiful card.  (Your cupcake on the front was Good Enough To EAT!)
And my last card share for today is a treasured card from my good friend Mary FishOH MY GOSH - I love love love receiving a card from Mary......and mainly because I know the card I'm receiving is a ONE OF KIND CARD and it will end up being posted on Mary's blog (for HUNDREDS of viewers to see).
Mary used the new hostess set "A Cherry on Top" and used one of my favorite DSP packs "Floral District" to create this OH SO SWEET birthday card for me.  I seriously love how the final touch that Mary added to this card was two Old Olive banner flags peeking out the side of the DSP - OH SO BRILLIANT Mary!  Thank you Girlfriend for your special special card. 
Hope you have some SUPER FUN PLANS for this 4th of July.  We are heading down to my good friend Nancy Novak house for her traditional 4th of July Pool Party.  Good Food ..... Great Friends ..... AND ....... Live entertainment by Troy.  Should be a fabulous time and we will end the day watching the fireworks on the hill in SaddleBrooke.  Sure to be a FUN DAY.

I'll be back tomorrow to share more Birthday cards with you......Hope you can stop back for that share. 
Keep Living Your Dream!
