Best Birthday Ever - Thank you

I just had to make a special post to thank all my lovely friends for making my birthday so special this year. As many of you know i don't really enjoy my birthday generally, i prefer everyone elses, but this year was something special. I am completely overwhelmed (to the point of tears!!) at all the lovely cards i received and also gifts. I have been totally blown away with your kindness. Each and every one will be kept in a special keepsake box for me to look back on over the years, thank you from the very bottom of my heart. I have tried to email everyone personally, having said that some more cards arrived today, and i have not had time to email you yet, but i promise i will.

What a talented lot of friends i have, ive enjoyed studying each and every wonderful card i am blessed to have such thoughtful friends.

And more xxxxxxx

and yet more gorgeous cards!

So once again, you really do not know what this meant to me, it truly was the best birthday ever thanks to you all. It is a birthday i will never forget, you all made me feel for once in my life "special" if only for one day. {{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}} to you all xxxxxx
Jasmine left for her school trip this morning, because im sentimental at the best of times i decided it was best for me to say my goodbyes at home and to let David take her. I am sure she will have a fabulous time and not give us a second thought.
I am already missing her, its very quiet here!!
As you all know my baby is settling in well, here he is with my baby girl.

and again with my baby boy!

Now how gorgeous does he look here, asleep. Little tinker thinks the settee is his!

and i didn't have the heart to move him.

Just enough room for me and Bear together at least until he is fully grown!

Will be back tomorrow with a card for the Creative Crew Challenge, i hope you will join us this week!
Good evening and god bless, Linda x

Sorry I missed your birthday Linda, please accept my belated best wishes. What wonderful cards you recieved, how lucky you are, and so deserved.

Sorry it has taken me awhile to catch up with everyone's blogs, but hopefully by the end of this evening I'll have got round to everyone.
