I have been away for a few weeks so I have a few piccy's to show you ,, you might like to get comfy and have a nice cup of coffee as this may take a while :-) It's Wednesday so it's the day to show everyone whats on your desk and link up to the lovely Julia at the Stamping Ground for the WOYWW slot :-)

As you can see I did succumb and bought a few bits and bobs at the NEC but lots of this is birthday pressies from my lovely crafty buddies too :-) Did you spot the HM mug !! that was a gift from a fellow HM&F +SSS challenge teamie, Heather :-) Thanks Heather I know it will get lots of use :-) there are stamps from Domi, and ribbons and embellies and papers from Jo, Chris, Natascha, Joey, Sue, Carissa, Jane, I also received a beautiful frame from Debby which I will show later with a photo of us in it ,,, just need to get that printed !! oh my goodness ,, I hope I didn't miss anyone ,, I have been in the UK for a few weeks and my brain is muddled as things arrived there and here ,,and I didn't write things down !!! If I have forrgot you I am sincerely sorry and please give me a nudge so I can add you xx

now for the gorgeous cards I received ,,, these are from Jo, Sydney, Joey, Jane, Mandy, Natascha, Chris, Domi and Sue ( Scoopy)

These are from Tara G, Helen, Dorte, Debby, Carissa, Squirrel, Samantha, Anesha and Delphine :-)

And last but not least ,, this one was from my Mum :-) Don't you just LOVE that feather boa !!! :-)

Thanks to you all for making my birthday so special :-) I had them all on display at my brothers house and they were all seen and admired by lots of friends and family :-) I did feel very loved so thank you all xx

Now ,,, am not finished yet !!!! wait a min ,,,, there is one more piccy to show you !!

this was taken in Weatherspoons at the NEC :-) It was so lovely to meet up with so many people ,, here is me with Kim and her friend ( who's name escapes me ,, sorry xx ) Dawny P, Kath, Heather and Jo, Ialso met a few other blog buddies but we forgot to take piccy's before they left ,, so a big wave to Cathy and Vicky :-) it was lovely to finally get to meet you :-) Waves to Jacqui and Marlene too ,, it is always so lovely to meet you :-)

Ok ,,, going to make me a nice capuccino in my fab mug and then will be coming for a snoop around your desks :-)
