This week is it my birthday and I just love being part of the Stamping Community and Stampin’ Up!®

Since starting stamping some 10 years ago I’ve met some wonderful people and we’ve shared our joys and our trials over that time and many have become good friends. This can also be said about being part of the Stampin’ Up! family – so many demonstrators have become good friends as well as my wonderful customers!  This is just for local demonstrators and freinds either but for friends worldwide!

CarolJeffreyLast week I got my first birthday card from Carol and its a gorgeous card using the gorgeous Fifth Avenue floral.

Isnt it just stunning?

LoriWatsonUDIThe following day I received a lovely card from a fellow demonstrator in the USA!

This one is from Lori Watson who also shares my birthday! It was so sweet of her to send me a card all the way from Michigan!

She is obviously alot more organised than I as I only sent hers last week so I do hope it arrives in time!

Then this morning I received a very purty pink and purple box from my dear friend and fellow demonstrator Tanya Kitto.

Now Tanya is in Western Australia and there is a time difference of 2 hours – the parcel arrived at 8.45am my time so it wasnt even 7am at her house yet so I had to wait till she was online to say if I could open it or if I had to wait till friday!  I got a message from her just after 9am to say I could open it … talk about a kid at christmas! but who doesnt like to get surprises and presents?

TanyaKittoLook what was in the box! all secured with tissue paper, bubble wrap and LOTS of sticky tape!

Does this girl know me or what??

A gorgeous card using my absolute favourite papers – Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Series Papers and a large coffee cup and saucer.

But wait ….. that’s not all!

Have a look inside the cup! TanyaKitto2

Yup my favouritest (yes that IS a word) chocolate – dove caramel chocolate and filled to the brim of the cup!

Tanya youre the best but when I put on all those kilo’s from that chocolate I’m sending it all to you!!

Thank you ladies for starting my birthday blessings off early and I’m so blessed to have you as friends!

Now off to introduce that coffee cup to my espresso machine!


  1. Happy Birthday Leonie 🙂 May your birthday last for at least a week, with cards and goodies coming your way!
    Rubber hugs,

  2. I’m so glad you like it Leonie 🙂 I must admit to you that I case-d the card from one I received for my birthday from the lovely Vicki McSharer. I loved it so much I had to make some myself. Eat the chocies in moderation & savour the yumminess 😀 😉
