BLOGAVERSARY CELEBRATION #2!!

Yay & Happy Friday everyone! I'm so happy it's the weekend--seems like this week has lasted forevah! I won't talk your ear off today cuz' this is gonna be another LONG blog post, hee hee! Please make sure and read to the end cuz' I've got a card to share, some Copic color info and of course BLOG CANDY #2 for ya!!


Today's card was made yesterday using this week's SCS Sketch 221 which was a fun if not a slightly challenging one! I used my new PTI set "Life" (which is a gorgeous set) and paired it with this yummy dp from My Mind's Eye (Laundry Line). I stamped the flower image a couple of times in PTI's aqua mist & SU's sage shadow--and then went back in with the small flower bud stamp in Palette Cream ink. The border was done w/ a Fiskars border punch and the pearls are Kaiser. I took my Diamond Glaze and globbed it on (technical term, hee hee) and while it was wet sprinkled some fine glitter on top. I really like it--and I think its so pretty!

**Edited to Add--because so many of you asked nicely, I have made this Copic Hair chart into a pdf file that you can download & print. You can find it on my sidebar under Copic pdf files--Hair colors!**

I have had so many people ask for hair color recommendations that I decided to color up a bunch of heads (lol) with my favorite color combo's for ya! This is my own personal colors that I use--there are many more combo's out there I'm sure, but I use these the most :o) (CLICK on picture to make larger) **NOTE--all my Copic Tutorials in both video & PDF form are on my right sidebar here on my blog**

Dark Brunette--E25, E49, E53, E59

Auburn/Red--E13, E17, E18, E19

Dark Blonde--YR23, E35, Y23 (Buy this Bundle of Copics HERE)

It was so romantic! We've ben married for 8 years now, have three kiddos, and lots more years of happiness to look forward to!

  2. Hi Suzanne! Gorgeous candy, really love to win it!
    2 years ago on my Bday was sick, and went to the doctor and he told me that I am pregnant, so that was my best present for Bday! :) I was so happy that I started to cry! Have a nice weekend! Hugs, Moni

  3. Hi ^_^
    mmm I think that the best birthday present ever received was... my cat! *_*
    I really wanted a red female cat, so my husband adopted my actual cat, Dakota.
    But I've had sooo many beautiful presents in my life... I'd like to remember also my microscope ^_^

  4. The best birthday present I've gotten was for my 30th birthday, about 15 of us went to the melting pot to eat. We took up 4 different tables and had so much fun.

  5. Thank you so much for the hair samples -- I will definitely be checking your tutorials out.

    I have two favorites:
    My husband (then boyfriend) gave me a diamond tennis bracelet for my 30th birthday, which we were celebrating in Jamaica. I already knew he was a keeper before then, but definitely after that.

    My other favorite is a sentimental favorite -- my dad (who is no longer with us) gave me a little desk fan for my 11th birthday. That little fan still works 25 years later. I laugh every time it sputters to get started each summer.

  6. Suzanne, thank you so much for the hair color information...that is priceless. The best birthday present I ever received was a memorable trip to Lake Tahoe...the rest of that story stays in Lake Tahoe...lolol

  7. ooo what fabby candy! We don't do big pressies for birthdays and because mine is in the spring I usually get plants for the garden - the most stunning being the star magnolia from my sons which is now quite a big tree! hugs, annie x

  8. wow, i'm 7th in line this time. Last time i was in the hundreds. Guess that just means i'm online early today. ahahahaha. My favorite birthday gift was this past year. My hubby had always been awful about birthdays for me. He had NEVER gotten me a card or a cake in the entire time he's known me. When i told him this, he didnt believe me then he realized i was right. So he threw me a big surprise party and got me a cake for every single year he's known me! I had cake covering my kitchen and had to send a cake home with everyone!

  9. My husband asked me to marry him the day before my 21st birthday. That was very special!! Best birthday gift ever!!!

  10. Hi Suzanne, Thank you so much for the hair colors! My favorite birthday present isn't really a present. My family gets together and celebrates birthdays as more of a get together. I cherish these times more and more as my parents, siblings, hubby, children and I get older.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Wow Suzanne this card is absolutely amazing!!! I love the soft greens and browns and that Kaiser paper is incredible!!! So, so gorgeous!!! i love teh way you added the flower soft to the flowers! That stuff is amazing and you are incredible at using it! Such a great layout as well!!

    Thanks so much for includeing the hair color chart1 You have no idea how helpful that is! It is going straight into my resource file!

    ALright my best birthday present ever has to be my daughters first professional pictures! They arrived shortly after my birthday and it was so fun to see her beautiful face!

    Smiles,

  12. Love your card. And the hair chart is awesome. My favorite present was on my 15th birthday, I got a cool new saddle with lots of silver on it. Kind of corny now looking back, but boy did I love that saddle!

  13. "What was the best birthday present you ever recieved?"

    Wow - another awesome blog giveaway!

    I think my best birthday present was my cricut. Birthdays have never been a big thing to me, but I gathered my birthday money up one year to buy my cricut and never regretted it since!

  14. My best birthday was a few years ago when we spent our birthday in Disney World. I say we because my husband and I share the same birthday, 7 years apart. We went with 2 other couples. It was an amazing time.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Gorgeous!
    This MME paper has such a wonderful look and I love this design. Love how you globbed your glaze too...see, I learn so much from you...now I too can use "technical" terms!!! lol
    Thanks for doing the hair colors, that was brilliant!
    I was trying to think about the best birthday present ever and even though I've seen alot of birthday parties I can't really think of any specific...what I do remember are the gathering with all my friends & family. So my best would have to be the people who bless me just be being there!
    I love that every day of the year!!!
    I posted a sweet pix of your candy in what turned out to be a SCACD themed post today!
    Have a fabulous day Suzanne!

    It is impossible to top some of the best birthdays already listed, but I am going to go with when my husband who I was dating at the time gave me a TV that was much bigger than the one had, not only because it was a great gift, but the unspoken significance of I am going to keep coming around and sharing that TV with you, and we did and 16 years later have purchased other TVs together. Love the blog candy, what fun, and all your great cards and the tutorials. Have a great day.

  17. I'd say my best birthday present would have been when a bunch of kids from high school planned a surprise 18th birthday party! They had it all planned out including me riding there in a blindfold! :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Love the color charts Suzanne. Thank you for the tutorials. I have one set of the copics and now I am going to have to have them all!!!

    My favorite birthday present would have to be the year my girls each made me a card with their handprints on them. They are priceless.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love purple! It's probably my next favorite color, after pink (my fave). Not sure what my "best" present was, but I got stamps for my birthday this year. That's a great present for me!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thank you so much for the hair coloring samples! I will have to give them a try soon.

    My favorite birthday present is a lovely garnet ring DH gave me while we were dating. It is made of rose gold, and has an antique style vine and berry design forming the band. It is just beautiful, and I was really touched that he picked out something that was so me.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Suzanne you have out done yourself. Thanks for the tutorial on hair colors.
    Let's see the best birthday present I ever recieved would have to be my daughter Kyla. She wasn't born on my birthday but she was only 2 weeks old when I celebrated it. Seeing her sleeping in her moses basket as my friends through a surprise party for me was the best thing ever.

    ReplyDelete
  22. HAPPY BLOGANNIVERSARY!!

    Beautiful card.

    Thank you for the hair color tips.

    My favorite birthday present hmmmm i want to be honest, I don't remember, i'm always the person that organize the birthdays, make surprises, etc.

    Have a good weekend

    ReplyDelete
  23. My best birthday ever -- honestly, I hope it is this year. My husband has been informed that since I am turning 30 on the 30th that I expect a party. I also hope to complete my Copic collection :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. Beautiful card. I never use more than one ink and really need to, I love the way the sentiment is in two inks. Thank you so much for posting the different hair colors, that really helps to see them and the colors that are used for them. I'm getting ready to order more copics and it helps to know which colors blend so well together. What a great blog candy! Have a great weekend.

  25. My best Birthday present was my 2nd baby boy. He was born a week before my birthday. My first baby boy was my best Christmas present, and my baby girl was my best Easter present. =D

  26. My best birthday present was my sister getting married on my birthday. It was such an honor to share my special day with her. I always tease my bil that at least he has me to remind him of his anniversary

  27. What a gorgeous card! And I love that border punch.

    My best birthday present was a painting my mother did of my cat who had passed away just before my birthday. It immediately brought me to tears.

    Thanks for the chance to win some great candy again!

  28. WOW, those colors in that card is amazing!

  30. Not only do I love the change to win some candy... but the poster with the hair colors is AMAZING!
    Any way we can color copy it for reference? Thank you!

    My favorite bday gift has to be a set of Hidalgo stackable rings Dan gave me when the girls were born. my birthday is right in between both girls' birthdays. Later he added to my "little collection" and now I have a blue one with "x", a pink one with a bow, and red one with hearts ~ with guards and bands to mix and match.

  32. Great candy! I'm an April Fool birthday girl, so I never know what my family and friends will try to pull over on me. Usually they are super sweet. My best bday was when my hubby whisked us away for the weekend (made all the plans himself and suprised me). It was pretty low key (we went to the Spam Museum) but just my type of adventure.

    ReplyDelete
  33. My best birthday present was my 30th surprise birthday party thrown by my husband and best friend. Friends from another state came down and I was beyond surprised!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well I too got engaged on my birthday. But my best birthday was 2 years ago. I came home from work to find a big banner hung in the archway in my kitchen made by my 4 year old-with help from his sister-my stepdaughter. He also made me a little card covered in stickers- I've been krogering! LOL As well as some of those freebie kind that come in the mail. Too cute.

    Great tutorial and AMAZING candy!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. My birthday is April 1st...so when I win this it will be the best birthday present evah! LOL! JK!
    LOVE LOVE LOVE the card! SUPER PRETTY! Thanks you so much for the hair colors! All my people get the same 2 color combos that I think you shared at some other...so it will be nice to mix it up now! LOL!

  41. I know this sounds odd but it was a box of crayons. and nope i wasnt a little kid. I was 25 years old and I had been dating my current hubby for a couple of months and he didnt have a lot of money and wanted to get me something and when i opened the present and saw a 64 box of crayons i cried because he knew icollected crayons to color when i was stressed i had a bookshelf of coloring books that i colored in when i got upset to calm me down and it was the sweetest most thoughtful gift. I think I knew then I loved him and would forever.

    Grats on blogaversary =)

  47. Thak you for the color combinations for the the "hair coloring", well, don't know if I really should be telling you thanks, cause now I have to spend more money :-). That was what I have been needing.
    The best Birthday gift I received was when my girls had a surprise birthday party for me for "a milestone" birthday. It was awesome walking in and seeing my very best friends, all with smiling faces. And I truly can say that it was a surprise, no warning whatsoever.

  50. Hi Suzanne
    Happy Blog a versary, Hehe
    I would have to say the present that sticks out the most in my life to date that is my most favorite is : It was 10 years into my marriage to my hubby and he gave me the engagement ring that I would have loved when he proposed to me but it was not for our budget so on the year of our 10th anniversary instead of him waiting till October for the anniversary, he gave me the ring with sapphires on the sides for my September $th Birthday:-) He is such a sweetheart!

  52. Oh, Happy Blogaversary! Such a beautiful card and I ended up getting that set free last week at Stamp New England and love it! My best birthday present was my 30th birthday. My daughter, Tiffany was born the day before I turned 30! She was born November 4th and I turned 30 November 5th. Best present I ever received!

  53. Thank you for the hair colors! I just use the same browns - how boring of me. I will definitely bookmark this.

    The best present I got was probably my laptop. I use it for blog surfing and getting inspiration. It's invaluable! I love it!!

  54. My best birthday present ever received was when my DH and I went to Boca Raton Florida for my birthday (which is 27th December) and I spent the whole day being pampered by my brother in law and sister in law who used to live there and worked at the Boca Raton Resort Hotel. They'd arranged for me to have brunch at the Boca Raton Resort Hotel, went on a shopping spree finally ending up having a meal in the Boca Raton Resort Mizner Tower complete with stunning views and food to die for. My sister in law had made me a birthday cake too. This will always stick in my mind too.

    Thanks for a lovely opportunity to win some candy.

  56. Thank you so much for the hair color chart! That is sooo helpful!

    Best birthday present ever? That's hard, because I've had so many great ones...most memorable was probably a weekend trip to San Francisco with my mom (and no siblings!) when I turned 16. It was so fun staying in a hotel and eating out with just her and me; I'm in my 40's and I still remember that birthday :)

  57. Well I always receive great gifts. This past year I received the entire SLICE by Making Memories machine, tools, case, and all cards for it. I also got a BIG SHOT machine. Guess my birthday being right around Sweetest day helps..hehe

    I've linked it here.

    My best birthday gift ver... Well, that's EASY! When I turned sixteen, my mom was in the hospital, having had surgery for cancer. She was supposed to stay for a bunch more weeks, but she talked the doctors into giving her a "vacation day" at home, because it was my birthday and she wanted to spend it with me...

    Having her home, was without a doubt the most valued gift I ever have received.

  62. I was surprised when I read how many of you ladies put down the best birthday present ever is the same as mine. It is so amazing, how many of us don't say the big diamond ring or the cruise..... My son was born 5 1/2 weeks before my birthday and to me that was the best birthday present ever.

    Suzanne I love the wonderful card you made with the Life set. I made my first card with the set last night, too. Not as pretty as yours.

    Thanks for all the great hair coloring tips.

  64. The best birthday present I ever got was a nightgown from my Aunt. I was 13 and it was a silky one and I had always worn cotton pj's. It made me feel like I was grownup. Silly now but it is something that I will never forget.

    Hmmmm....best birthday gift? That's a hard one because I think all my birthdays are the best. Each birthday brings great gifts.

    This year's gift was great because my hubby bought me MFT and Magnolia stamps. I spent the day at the zoo with my BFF - that was an awesome gift.

    Hugs & good luck to all!!!

    Wow I can believe your candy. I would love to win as I don't have any of those things!!!!

  75. I'm asking about the card from March 18.
    I have got the promarkers and I use them on the same paper as used for colouring with distress inks but the result is not so intense like on your cards.
    I bought the marker/layout paper, but it is so delicate, you can see the colour on the other side.
    Even using the thicker paper underneath is not helping, you can see the glue.
    Can you tell me what kind of paper you usually use?

  76. The best Birthday present I ever got...what a tuff one. My hubby got me and SLR camera for my birthday about 10 years ago. I *loved* it. He is so nice he bought me a digital SLR for my birthday this year, and he even gave it to me early! (My b-day is not until May)

I think I have all of your tutorials printed and in my binder! Thanks Teacher ;) Love ya for that!!! And thanks for the chance to win some more wonderful candy for your blogaversary! You are just the most kind and giving person that I know! I would love to get my inky hands on those WOJs...I didn't get a chance to order any of the newbies yet :( As for your birthday question...my favorite birthday gift....hmmm...that's a tough one! I love every birthday because I get to spend time with my family! However my favorite physical gift would have to be last year when my hubby took me shopping for my birthday and bought me everything that day!

  79. Wow! Great blog site today. Beautiful card... helpful hair chart... and GREAT candy! Thanks for all of it.

    One of my favorite birthday gifts was from my grown son a couple of years ago. He gave me a lovely wall clock for my living room, but I already had a small clock on my end table (which of course no one else could see or read). So I thought... this is sure pretty, but I don't NEED another clock. Well, my son let me know that yes I needed more than a wristwatch on a stand! So I kept it, put it up after a couple of weeks, and now I just LOVE that clock!! I smile every time I look at it.

  80. Beautiful card! Thank you for the Copic hair color recommendations and samples. It's one thing to see the Copic numbers, but this is nice to see the samples too. As far as the best birthday present I ever received, I don't remember. I usually remember my birthdays for being able to spend time with my family. I've usually been able to stretch my birthday for about a week especially now having in-laws. Thanks for the chance to win the blog candy.

  83. 1st...let me say "THANK YOU" for the coloring tutorials!!!! I will surely be referring to them. As for the best birthday gift....it was more than 20 years ago. My hubby and I didn't have a lot of money, so he wrote me a poem describing my life. I Loved it!!! I still have the poem... Have a great day! And thanks for sharing!

  84. What a beautiful & very elegant card. Thank you so much for the copic info. My most favorite present was the car I received on my 16th birthday. That was fun!!

  85. A platinum diamond ring that was the exact replica of the fake one I'd been wearing. I'd gone through 2 of the fake ones and the hubby surprised me with the real deal! Best Birthday EVAH!

  86. What fabulous colored heads! LOL!

    I don't really have a "best" present I've ever received, however most often I get Barnes & Noble gift cards which is my favorite place to shop besides the craft places!

    Congrats again on your 1 year blogaversary!

  87. I can't think of a best present, but now that they no longer happen, I know that my best birthdays were when a huge group of my family was able to be together to celebrate my birthday. I miss that!

  89. I'm so excited to have found your blog today! You're very talented!

    My favorite bday gift seems materialistic...but the thought behind it made it sentimental. A couple years ago I wanted a Wii...and they were nowhere to be found in stores. My best friend and husband conspired and found that her sister's boyfriend had 2 and was willing to sell one for normal retail price. He surprised me with the Wii and she surprised me with a Wii controller. It was very cute.

    I just bookmarked your blog...thanks for your wonderful posts and blog candy :)

  91. I would have to say that my best gift was the birth of my first grandchild, he was born 10 days before my birthday and I was there to witness the miracle, an experience I will never forget. Today I have 16 grandchildren with another on the way and each one is as special as the other. Never ceases to amaze me.

  93. Wow ~ really had to think about this. It would have to be the year my daughter who was in high school at the time, arranged to have my family come over to celebrate. She cleaned the house, cooked all the food and then cleaned up after everyone went home.
    Thanks for the chance to win. I tried opening the pdf files and my computer didn't like them. I'll have to ask my husband to figure out why.

  94. The very best Birthday present was my Sweet 16th. My boy friend at the time (latter my husband) gave me the most beautiful Sterling Silver Wine/champagne Chiller. It was such a thoughtful gift. I felt so grown up...it's funny when I think of it now. I still have it and we use it for big events. Like at both of my Childrens Bride/Groom Tables, when they were married. For anniversary and various Holidays over the years. It truly was a very thoughtful gift and I get giddy and teary eyed both when I think of it now.
    Thanks for the chance at the very thoughtful blog candy.

    My favorite birthday present was...on my 40th birthday, DH threw a surprise party for me at a private club and the kicker was that he flew in one of our best friends from Seattle, WA to dj for the event and to share in my birthday. It was the best!

  100. Great blog candy! I can't think of what my very best birthday present was, but my most recent one was a few weeks ago...my hubby gave me a ring that looks like an anniversary ring, but is made with aquamarines (my birthstone). He took me back to where he first proposed and proposed again and gave me the ring. It's really special, because he NEVER gives me jewelry.

    I tried to think what my the best BD present I ever received was and I really had a difficult time with it. So, after much thought to your question I believe my answer would be the love and friendship I have received, not only on my BD, but through out my life.

I am thankful for each one, and there have been so many now (47), but when I turned 40, my mother made a huge cake (she decorates professionally) that looked like a Longaberger basket (I sell them), with my picture on it from grade school. She brought it to work and surprised me with it! Pretty neat.

  128. Wow....this was an easy question for me! My favorite birthday present was for my 40th birthday. My dad had asked me a few months earlier if there was ever something I really wanted to do but never had. Well, ever since I was a kid I had always wanted to ride in an open cockpit biplane. Shortly before my birthday I had gone to visit my parents in Florida and sure enough, they had arranged for one of their friends to take me out in an open cockpit biplane. Flying down Daytona Beach just out over the water with the warm wind and smell of the ocean was amazing! That turned out to be the start of a new hobby for me, flying.

    Thanks for the chance to win such amazing blog candy!

  134. My best b'day gift? I still recall a cake that my aunt made for me when I was around 10. It had a beautiful doll on top, and her beautiful big dress was made from icing. It was the prettiest cake I had ever seen! Thank you for the chance, and congrats again!

    ReplyDelete
  135. WOW! this is probably the BEST blog candy EVER!!!
    Best Bday present? I have 2. As a child my favorite was a Laurie Walker doll. She was tall enough that I held her hand as I walked and if I walked VERY slowly, her legs would alternate and she would walk with me. My poor Dad was sooooooooo patient and actually let me bring her on vacation one year AND walk her the whole time.
    Second best is as an adult. My DH bought me the QK pink Squeeze when they first came out. I didn't know he even knew what they were let alone I wanted one!

  138. One of my best birthday presents ever was this past year. We had spent my birthday at a funeral and traveling home so there wasn't a lot of celebrating. We'd also spent a lot of money on this unexpected trip. I told my husband that I didn't need anything. A few days after we got back, he said he needed to run up to the school for a bit. He came home with two pies from Village Inn and as I was eating a piece, then presented me with a gift card to Hobby Lobby. So sweet.

  139. I think my best birthday ever was many, many years ago on my 21st, when my then boyfriend took me to San Francisco to see theater in the round and out to dinner. Legally we could even have champagne to celebrate my birthday.

The best birthday present I can get is to be there to enjoy the day with family and friends.

Oh, and the scrappy presents I receive!! LOL

It wasn't the warmest,but everything was still green and we saw tons of rainbows.We stayed on the lower side of the island, but saw everything from the cliffs of mohr, to Dublin and everything in between. On my birthday, we sat in a pub and I had chocolate cake and an Irish coffee. Hands down, my favorite birthday!

  152. My best and most favorite birthday present was the tan toy puppy that my uncle gave me. It was my very own toy and he let me pick it out all by myself. I grew up in a household of 4 kids, and being the middle child, I always had to share or own hand-me-downs. When I first got to pick out my own toy, I was so overjoyed. To a 12-yr old that was the greatest present ever. I remember having to share my other toys with my siblings later on but it just so great b/c it's mine's. Thanks for sharing with us!

  154. My favorite birthday present was when my husband took me to the California Grill atop the Contemporary Hotel at Disney World. We had a wonderful view of the Magic Kingdom. During dinner we were able to see the fireworks from our table. Also the chef made me a special chocolate mousse cake which was so delicious. Spending time with my husband, a wonderful dinner, fireworks and chocolate. . . it's an evening that I will always remember.

    The best Birthday present I've ever had was on my fourtieth B/day.
    The birth of our baby daughter, Katelyn. She was a little opps after our third son fourteen years her senior. How thrilled I was, the first girl born on my husbands side for over 100yrs. She is now 10
    For me she will always be the best B/day present I have ever had.

  166. Gosh, two things put to my mind.

    One would be a small golden ring with al little diamond my father gave to me when I turned 16. It was saver than a scooter ;-) I still were it every day, even 23 years later. It allways reminds me of the good times with him (he died a year after my 16'th Bday).

    The second would be on my last B day, two weeks ago. It was a card from my husband, saying he loved me as much as the first day and he hoped to grow old with me.

    I guess the joy is in the small things in life :D

  167. My best birthday present was probably the time that my boyfriend (who is now my husband) flew my best friend into town from CO to spend the weekend with me. Then he also planned a surprise party with all the rest of my best friends from college. It was wonderful because I missed them all so much!

  172. I love what a friendly place your blog is! You can tell this brings you a lot of joy and I hope it continues to do so. Thank you for the hair samples and color schemes.

    One of my favorite birthdays started five years ago. I had met a group of birthday sisters and we all scrapbooked together. It turned out we were all March birthday babies. Our birthday's being the 22-23-25-29. We got to celebrate together for two years before we all were scrattered as our husbands received orders..even though we all live around the country now, we will always share this bond and have each other to celebrate with.

    This year is probably going to be my most cherished birthday, I am alive and out of the hospital and home with my whole family, getting spoiled with presents my children made for me on their own (I think presents made from the heart are the best ever) and they are 3, 9 and 14 and all of my Grandparents being with me too (they are 85-87 and 90). It was such a blessing and I am grateful for so much. An amazing husband who supports everything I dream about doing or trying. My mom being with me to take care of me during my recovery because we can to share stories, look at pictures and bond. My dad for sharing my mom with me until I can take care of my family on my own again. My siblings and their families and I have the best friends ever too.

    Smiles and Blessings

  176. Best Birthday present I ever had was when my family had a birthday party for me. Sort of a welcome back to the family sort of party. I was on the outs with them and had not seen them for aprox 5 mos. they welcomed me back with open arms and forgave me. That was the best ever I could have hoped for

  177. My best birthday present was 34 1/2 years ago when I got a cookie jar from my now-husband. It was in my Pfaltzgraf pattern, Yorktowne, and my husband said that I needed to keep the cookie jar full for him. He said, "See if there are any cookies in it now." I looked inside and there was an engagement ring. We will celebrate our 35th in Nov. pat neihejp@att.net

  178. As my birthday is in December my mother took me to a Christmas market in Germany a couple of years ago. We had so much fun that day so we repeat it every year since then. Thanks for a chance to win! Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

  180. What a fab candy - I just found it and made it before the deadline.

    I think my best b-day present was this year when I got a smoothiemixer that I'd been wanting forever.

    Thank you so much for the chance. You can contact me through my blog.

  182. My best B-day present was when my boyfriend (now hubby) took me for an evening cruise in his sailboat. During the cruise he had given me several gifts, which included a diamond ring...then he delivered an awesome proposal! Of course I said "YES!"

  183. My best birthday... hmm..
    Several years ago, my husband and both my children cooked me breakfast in bed.

    They were the most salty, disgusting pancakes I have ever eaten and I will cherish every bite of them until the day I die.

  184. The best birthday present I've had is probably when my DH (then boyfriend) flew in to visit me. We had a great time and also decided that week that we wanted to get married so we took unofficial engagement photos on my birthday. :)

  185. The best birthday gift was my replacement wedding ring. After having my kids, my wedding ring got stuck on my finger. When I finally got it off, I was afraid to put it back on. My hubby got me a new, stunning, wedding ring for my birthday. I love it and get lots of comments.
