I have a few more birthday cards from wonderfully talented stamping friends that I'd like to share.

This gorgeous card and set of Cricut penguins is from Sheri, aka ksnurse. Sheri obviously knows that I love penguins and these little guys are so cute!  She also knows that I love da purple!!!  The ribbon treatment with the flower charm is exquisite!

This gorgeous tres chic chick card comes from the very talented and classy Anne Ryan.  I wish you could see it in real life.  It is pure elegance and class, just like our Anne, who also happens to have a wicked sense of humor that I cherish.

Bzzzzz!  Bzzzzzz!  I didn't think I'd ever call a bee adorable, but this one is!  Just look at those rosey cheeks, long eyelashes, and cute smile!  My friend Lorraine, aka pidgesmom, sure knows how to make an adorable card, and she gave this li'l guy a beautiful flower to pollinate at the same time!  Isn't Lorraine thoughtful?

I just had to upload this cutie patootie.  My multi-faceted and skilled friend, Sabrina, aka cook22, knitted this cutie and sent him to me all the way from Ireland!  You can bet he holds a special place in my heart.  I uploaded her card several days ago, but I wanted to showcase her beauty right next to this precious knitted penguin.

This pretty woman was sent to me by dirty girl alumni, Cindy, aka Mothermark, aka da Muddermark, aka Gertie, aka goofy girl.  I had the good fortune to meet and spend time with Cindy in Colorado about two and a half years ago.  What a treasure she is, and what a treasure this 6 x 9 card is!  Doesn't she look just like Julia?  The detailing on this card is fabulous!

This glittering beauty was created by my friend and another fellow tea partier, Marilynn, aka APandi.  It is a textural delight and the liquid applique frosting looks good enough to eat!  Mmmmmmmm!
There's nothing sleepy about this pretty little butterfly card sent to me by Joanne, aka sleepyinseattle.  The white flowers are embossed with pink brad centers, and the scoring she did on the pink panel really looks and feels like quilted material! 

Thank you, my dear friends!  I cherish each and every one of you and your gift of friendship!
