Even More Birthday Blogger RAKs

I have been blessed this year with a wonderful birthday! I've gotten so many beautiful cards, gotten some nice presents, but most importantly, spent it with the people that I love the most - my friends and family. I had my first ever surprise birthday party with a cake and everything, (my hubby NEVER does that!) with only 2 candles (a 3 and a 0...shhh, don't tell anyone...) since we wouldn't want to have that many candles on a cake - it'd be a fire hazard! lol Also, I was lucky enough to get the big box of Prismacolor Premier Pencils (still learning about them - you'll hear more about 'em later)! I am so excited!!! I'm SO going to be coloring away tonight! But before I do, here are some of my wonderful RAKS...

The first card is from Debbi Rippentrop, and the picture doesn't do it justice! It is beautiful, and it looks like she used a resist technique using the new Doodle This set. She used one of my fav color combos and sets, and completed it with the faux stitching - I love it! You can find her blog here.

The second card is made by Melissa, from Stamping Through the Tulips, and it's super pretty! She used my fav color - blue, and added microbeads to the flower centers for a sparkly dimensional look. Thanks so much, Melissa!

The third card is a very different layout, and very cool! The Hodgepodge holds the white flap closed, and then the Hodgepodge piece opens up! Very cute, and I really love that Paisley bkgd! I received this from Simone, a fellow Blogger RAKer. Thanks so much for thinking of me! Her blog can be found here.
The fourth card is from Miss Michelle Laycock, and it is lovely! She used one of the new Spring Mini sets, and some of my favorite punches. I love it, Michelle! Here is her blog.

The next adorable card (5th one down) is made by Lori Tecler. She used last year's Polka Dot Posies set, and I'm kind of sorry that I didn't get that one! I love the tag and ribbon technique, as well as the colors. Thank you so much, Lori! Check out her blog here.

And last, but not least, here is a card from my friend, Mimi Hornberger, that she made me for my birthday. She is not a Blogger RAKer (yet), but I wanted to post this anyway. I absolutely love the primas and bling in the flower centers! The paper is awesome, and very "me", and the sentiment is super sweet. Lots of love and hugs to you, Mimi! Here is her gallery.

Thanks to all of you for your wonderful cards! You all really helped make my birthday so special!
