Well, if that Justin Bieber song didn't get stuck in your head after my last post, I sure bet you've got a song in your head now!!
I've always wondered why we crafty folk refer to the cards and other goodies we get in the mail as "RAKs" (Random Acts of Kindness) even when they aren't random at all! Recently I got some lovely cards for my birthday, which I shall hereafter refer to as "BAKs," or "Birthday Acts of Kindness." Sound good? Ok, on we go!
First, from Lindsey over at Bashful Blogging, comes this cheery Bird-day card:
Linds is a whiz with color, and I really love the pops of yellow all over the place. Plus, Linds knows I love a pun!! I haven't spied this one on her blog yet, but keep an eye out for it! (She also knows I love a good surprise!).
Next, a card from my birthday-sharing buddy Emily that makes me look way nicer than I actually am ;) :
Gorgeous! It uses my favorite shades of orange, pink, and green, along with those glorious wings, which I bet Em knows I'd never in a million years have the patience to fussy-cut at all, much less as perfectly as she did here. You can read more about it in her blog post here.
And finally, from my uber-creative-with-her-Silhouette pal, Meg, comes a card she knows I LOVE:
Ack! If you recognize this one, it's because it's kinda famous -- it was part of her amazing final round submission for Gallery Idol a couple months ago. You can see the whole rad suite here. And yep, the tape pops out:
Since my bday often falls on the first day of fall (as it did this year), this adds an air of poignance...or something ;)
Thanks for the BAKs, crafty pals! You made my birthday brighter. And a little more full of loot, too -- there were some fun stampy gifties that came along with each card! I'll be sure to let y'all know when I use them. Woohoo!
Have a lovely day!
