~ Happy Birthday and Blog Giveaway! ~

Edited: This blog post will remain at the top till blog giveaway ends! (Posted on 1st May!)

Lots of birthdays this month, namely Banana Frog .... Happy 4th Birthday! Then there's moi.... still 21 and will be always! :) 

It's Banana Frog's 4th birthday and there's some major celebration going on. Check out the blog to find out more details! You definitely don't wanna miss it! And speaking of new stamps, have you seen the Tadpole set? This set compliments Hiya Chick set perfectly. Here's a card that I did with that cute bird!

Now that bird is just too cute. I'm such a softie when it comes to birds! 

Who says you can't use it for an Xmas card?


As it's my birthday today as well, I'm gonna offer a blog giveaway. Banana Frog has kindly offered a stamp set (of your choice!) Leave me a comment letting me what's the best birthday gift you received!  Blog giveaway closes on 15th May!

And what's my best birthday gift... well, the iPhone my hubs is gonna get me. At this moment, we are deciding which network to go for and which has the best contract. I'm not much of a phone user but definitely a net & text user so will need to find a contract that suit my needs. Looking forward to it... it will compliment my Mac perfectly! TTFN!

HAPPY, happy Birthday...hope it was a blast... My best Bday gift was many years ago, when Hubster got me a very special sewing machine...which sadly is now dead (not sure if it can be repaired or not)
Thanks for sharing,
Susan

the best birthday gift i received would have to be some scrapping paper from my husband, not because i loved the paper but i loved that he walked into a scrapping shop and picked something out for me. (and of course all of those little $2 mothers day presents from the school stall from my son!!)

Hello Audrey!!

Happy Birthday to you and all of the others you share it with! I adore your birdie cards...just so very sweet.

There is just something about birdies that I love.

Hope you had a wonder-filled Birthday and it being on NSD....Wow!

Cheers,
~Tonya

Hope you had a great birthday!

My best gift was a couple of years ago when my Mum and step-dad bought me the laptop I'd been saving up for!!

That bird is so cute! Love how you coloured it for Xmas and love the tri-fold card! My favourite present I get every year is seeds and bulbs from the kids so they can plant them in the garden for me to have flowers! It is just so cute :)

KarenB said...

That stamp is the sweetest! Loving your cards.

So hard to choose what's the best birthday gift ever... I don't really have a birthday that sticks in my memory at all. But for my birthday last year some of my scrapping girlfriends took me out for coffee and cake, and that was the best fun!!

Lousette said...

Happy Birthday! Hope you had a great day. My best gift would probably a necklace my mum gave me last year for my 40th. It is a tiny little ornate metal prayer box that opens up. She wrote some aspirations and dreams for me onto a teeny piece of paper and put it inside.

Happy Birthday!! Today I received a special birthday gift also . . . it was a Surprise 50th birthday party! My birthday is on the 5th but we only do get togethers on the weekend.
I love your great cards!!!

Jean said...

Happy birthday - love the cards! I'm a May baby too - though 'baby' is hardly the word to use when you reach my age! Best birthday present? hmmm it's been so long since anyone has given me one I haven't picked out myself, I hardly know what to say! :) Hope you have a great one!

Lush cards
My best birthday gift was when my hubby organised a completely surprise party for my 30th birthday. It was totally unexpected and utterly amazing

Shay said...

Last year my youngest son spend the day with me at the aquarium and let me take all the photos I wanted. I loved it.

Domna said...

Happy birthday!
My best gift was a dance pad ))

Claire said...

Your cards are so cute! I'm having trouble choosing, but my mum always gets me a lovely surprise box of stash, and in 2007 my OH bought me tickets to a musical in London. Very unlike him as he doesn't really enjoy them, so a great gift! :)

lisa said...

Happy Happy Birthday : )
Hope you have a fab day!!
One year hubby surprised me with loads of scrappy prezzies all day long. A big crop tote, accessories tote, Tim Holtz paint storage tin and just loads of scrappy stuff. All matching and ordered in from USA. A complete surprise : )

Enjoy your day xxx

Happy birthday to all:) Growing up I never had a real birthday party...so I don't remember much of my gifts...but since I've been married, my husband has been so wonderful to me. Our first year of marriage we were going out of debt Dave Ramsey style....he surprised me and paid off my entire college loan (which I had been paying for a couple of years...and it was a HUGE amount). That probably has to be the BEST bday gift ever. To know that we were out of debt....

Because I don't like my birthday or people to make a big deal about it....I loooooove getting gifts for friends and family! I love thinking about what they might like or need and getting crafty:) Giving is def. one thing I love to do:)

Thanks so much for being so kind with this blog giveaway! Hope you had a blessed birthday:)

ps...what super sweet cards:) I like the border punch around the second--and the DPs are super sweet! Great job:)

Lacey said...

I love your cards!! Happy Birthday! I love to celebrate my birthday for days (or weeks). hehe.

The best gift I ever received was from my Boyfriend a few years ago - he booked us a CRUISE!! It was the first time I had been on one and actually the first time I had been out of the country. :) He's the sweetest!

StampinCathy said...

Happy Birthday! What a great gift. My best present would have to be a beautiful ring my DH gave me. For my birthday and anniversary. They are back to back. I figure double depressed and don't have to worry about for another year. LOL Thanks for a chance.

Tanya said...

Happy Birthday!! Great birdie cards!!

My best birthday present has to be my Canon Rebel that my hubby gave me last year!!

Claire Crompton said...

Love your cards Audrey and hope you had a lovely Birthday. The best Birthday present I ever got were tickets to go to Italy to celebrate my 30th. The best part was that my hubby put the tickets into a huge balloon with lots of confetti and then put the balloon in a massive box. Very romantic!!.

Happy Birthday to you! My best gift...you know I can't think of anything that stands out. I'm sure there were lots of good ones but my memory has let me down!

Jennine Chambers said...

Happy Birthday!!! I love your cards and am all about celebrating!!! Have a great one!

JazzyH said...

Pretty!

Emma said...

Great card - that bird is fantastic, I think if I had that I would use it on loads of cards!

Best Birthday was my 30th (almost 5 yrs ago now eeek) I had just met my partner Jason and for once I felt like people put me first, I had 3 celebrations and a big family dinner and it was so nice to feel special, especially as I had just gone through a messy split up the year before!

If I got an iphone (I had to get my own) then that would come a pretty close 2nd!!!

dclouser said...

Happy Birthday! My best birthday ever was definitely when I got my Cricut - just love that machine!

Carol said...

My birthday is Christmas and often I get combined gifts. One year I got a trip to Egypt for me and my family. What a once in a lifetime experience!

Happy Birthday!!! My best birthday gift was going to a concert with my husband, son, and parents - So much fun!

Debby/Darthy said...

First I love your cards. So cute. Second, Happy Birthday!!! The one birthday gift that stands out for me was a big industrial Kitchen Aid mixer. LOL

Erica W. said...

(love your cards, by the way!)

Best birthday gift ever.. conceiving my daughter, quite by accident, on my 24th birthday. Yes, we were planning on trying later that year, but she was a nice surprise! She's 10 now.

Happy Birthday, Audrey! I love May! Warmer weather, and May is when I met my cute husband!
One birthday I will never forget is the one when he (my now husband) called my mom and asked her where he could take me to dinner for my birthday. She suggested a super nice restaurant named Lilly's- it was so good and so romantic... we weren't married yet, so it was pretty special! Sometimes the best gift is just time spent together!

Jen said...

Happy Belated Birthday Audrey! I'm catching up from hops, and you can see that I am behind! Your colors for these two cards and fabulous and I love the birds!
