  3. Happy Happy Birthday to your Blog Bibiana. Thanks for stopping over at mine, I am so glad you did or I would have never seen yours, what beautiful cards you have made. You asked:what was the best/ unique/original birthday card that you have ever received for your birthday. Well, I haven't ever received it yet...I am waiting to receive my first handmade card and that will be it. Hugs...Patti

  4. Happy 1st birthday to your blog,your card is amazing. My best card was one that the nurses made me using my sons photo ( taken with a instant camera in the special care unit ) as he was a premature baby and had to stay in and I had gone home for the day on my birthday to spend time with his brothers and on my return to the hospital had a very special birthday card from him. He is now a strapping 6ft lad x

  5. Happy Blog Birthday to you! Gorgeous pink flowers on your card. When I think of a special card, my mind goes to a canvas that DD made me for Mother's Day actually when she was about 13. She printed out tons of photos on normal paper and cut out parts of them and collaged them all over a 18" square canvas. She wrote a sweet message amidst the photos too. It's on permanent display!

  6. What a Cute card for your 1st Blog BD!!!
    I've so enjoyed my visits, glad I found you!

  7. happy birthday and huge congrats for celebrating your blogversary! Such an amazing card I am off to check out your video. I think the most unique card I have received was a card that played music when opened but hands down I would love a handmade card over anything else:) !! :)

  10. Love that video - you are a serious STAR! I am so crazy about the palm trees - even the little coconuts. Very cute. Another big congrats on a year of sharing. Don't include me in the drawing, but I wanted to comment. Hope to see you soon.

  11. HEY GIRLY *** BIG CONGRATS.... And what a year is has been for us to witness all the amazing, jaw dropping, gorgeous creations you have shared with us. Your videos, I just watched your round card, it was truly watching magic watching it all come together "MAGIC", the flowers are gorgeous,love the coconuts :). Outstanding work showcasing the die cuts. Your videos, inspire me to try things I wouldn't have imagined I could do. I'm honored to have a piece of your work,it sit right beside my computer :O). Thanks for sharing all of this in a year. Namaste to you my dear....

  12. Gorgeous ! Thanks for stopping by my blog or I would never have found your amazing blog x

  13. Hi Bibiana,
    Congratulations on your 1st Birthday of your blog.
    What a superb card you have made to celebrate it. I watched your video and thoroughly enjoyed your tutorial.
    The best Birthday card I ever received has got to be the one my husband sends me every year. I know this is strictly not what you were talking about, but he always, and every year finds the most wonderful card with the most wonderful verse to go with such a fabulous card. So you see I'm hard pushed to think of one that is better than all the rest.
    Thank you for visiting my blog and your lovely comments.
    Have the most wonderful rest of your Birthday day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  14. My best pressie ever was a complete set of promarkers my other half got me !

  15. bon anniblog Bibiana!
    le meilleur souvenir d'une carte , c'est celui de la première copinette scrappeuse qui me l'a envoyé!

  16. Happy Blog-birthday, dear Bibana... may many more come!!! I can't remember what is the best birthday card I've received but when I first started teaching, one of my class made a card for my birthday. I was writing on the board and when I had my back to them, they put the giant red and gold card on my desk and started singing "happy birthday"... That was great... One of my best memory as a teacher!!!! xxx

  17. congratulations on your first birthday for your blog bibiana! and you've made a beautiful card to mark the occasion. it's difficult to pick just one card as not one stands out, but i always loved getting hand drawn and coloured cards from my kids and the store bought ones from my husband, along with a promise that one day he'll make me one.

  18. I received a birthday card that played a song that had been popular when I was a teenager! I loved it!
    Love your fun card and Happy Birthday to your blog!

  19. what a lovely card, TFS
    the best birthday card i ever received was from my dad, i came to USA and it was the first card i got, it was sweet and always treasured.

  20. Congrats!!! Thanks for sharing how you made your lovely card...very unique!
    Paper Hugs,

  21. Congratulations on your blog birthday and hope you have many more. Thank your all the inspiration and help you have given me. I received a special card from my little granddaughter in New Zealand when we visited there last. She used a card I had sent as inspiration and made her own version. So special! I will watch the video wnenI get back home in a few days. Bibiana, your blog is so special. Hugs, Ursula

  22. Quelle superbe carte!
    Merci pour le partage!
    La meilleure carte d'anniversaire que j'ai reçu c'est celle de mon mari! ne sachant pas scrapper, il a voulu me faire plaisir, il s'est enfermé dans ma scraproom toute une soirée pour me la faire!
    Sa m'a vraiment touchée et elle était magnifique!
    Bisous Bibiana

  23. Happy Birthday. I'm so glad you like to blog because I get so much enjoyment from your blog. The most interesting card I received for my birthday was a homemade one that came from England. My girlfriend is a new stamper and I received my first handmade card from her this year.

  24. Un an déjà... le temps file vite! Bon anniversaire et longue vie au blog!

  25. Happy blogaversary Bibiana. Wow one year. I suppose I shall have to think something up for mine soon. It's amazing how far we come so fast. Best card I ever got was a goat from my aunt. She paid money for a poor family to receive a goat. They had to give the first baby to another poor family but after that all the milk, new goats and all that very useful goat fertiliser was theirs!! I just got a card with a picture of a goat on it but it was the best present I ever had. I have since bought quite a few goats, chickens and even a pig for people for birthdays and weddings. We have so much, it is so nice to give to those less fortunate. Have a great week. Sorry I was a bit late joining the party but as a little gift I can tell you the card is in the post ;-)........

  26. Gorgeous card! I love all the pretty details! And congrats on a year of blogging!
    One of the gals in my ATC swap group sent me a beautiful handmade card last year with a punched bird on it. It was really lovely! All the handmade ones are so special!

  27. Hello Bibiana, Ta carte est magnifique ! Pour moi, il n'y a pas de meilleure carte d'anniversaire ! Toutes les cartes reçues pour un anniversaire qu'elles soient achetées ou faites à la main par la personne, cela prouve simplement que quelqu'un pense à nous et c'est cela qui est important ! Bises

  28. Your circle step card is amazingly beautiful . I love all the cards I get but I think the most special would be one made by my little daughter
