Hello! It's a triple celebration here at my blog today :D

Firstly it's my Birthday today, (hip, hip, hooray!), so there will be lots of laziness and cake eating going on! I haven't opened any pressies as yet as I'm waiting for Pip to get home- so getting rather excited about that and I got a surprise knock at the door this morning as Pip had sent me some beautiful flowers!

My second celebration is that I finally managed to get to London to take some photos of my cards in Fenwicks and Libertys! Excuse the quality of the photos! This was such a buzz for me I can't really explain it in words- I was so excited in fact, that I forgot to ask permission to take the pictures and I was approached by a very nice lady who told me to stop. Once I explained why I was there and proved who I was she let me carry on!! lol!



And my third celebration is that I received a blog award from my good friend Anna. Such a lovely surprise!

The sunshine blog award is given to other bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspires others in the blogging world. :)

The rules for accepting this award are:

*Put the logo on your blog or within your post
*Pass the award onto 12 bloggers
*Link the nominees within your post
*Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog
*Link the person from who you received this award from.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to cheat a bit here because I've been pondering for a while now trying to decide who to pass this award onto and I've come to the conclusion that I just can't pick only 12 blogs that I love and that inspire me- I visit tons more than that and they all inspire me! So I've decided that I'm giving this award to all the lovely blogs I visit (I always comment so you know who you are!) Please accept this award and share it with other bloggers who inspire you too :)

Right I'm off to scoff some cake, drink a cup of tea and perhaps have an afternoon Birthday snooze............ :)

Bye bye for now xx
