More Birthday Cards

As promised, here are some more of the beautiful cards I got last week.

Here is Laurie's

and the next is Vicky's




Joan made me this lovely Book Card - this is the front cover


and this is the inside

and the back cover


Last, but by no means least, Trudys lovely Birdcage Easel card - it has four little match box drawers in the base, stuffed full of buttons and lovely metal embellishments!




Those are the cards, now for something else very special  -  each of the girls made a decorated initial of my name, which Jean then turned into this fabulous concertina card:



Jean also made the front page:




and Jean also decorated this fabulous box, which it came in:




Told you I was thoroughly spoiled!!!!
