Happy Birthday Nikki! My fav birthday present is when hubby took my 2 girls for the day and I had a day of scrapping!

Delaina said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIKKI!!! Hugs to you!!! You are the BEST!!!

Tammy said...

Happy Birthday Nikki!! Hope it's the best one yet!! My favorite birthday present ever was from my dad. He left it in a brown paper sack in the front seat of my car. He was just thinking about me and didn't really want everyone to see that HE remembered my birthday and got me something. Just that he was thoughtful and sneaky!! I don't even remember what it was but it was the feelings and kindness that went with it. It was my 30th birthday and I had just gotten a divorce so I was a single mom and turning the big 30. I think I will call my dad tomorrow.

Khristen said...

Happy birthday!!!!!! Hope you are treated as the queen you are. I think the best gift I ever got was from hubby, who got me a Karen Foster tote for my supplies, filled with little scrap goodies he tucked in the pockets. He is such a sweetie, he went to the LSS by himself, (the lady there knows me very well) and picked stuff out with her advice. He's a keeper!

deana said...

You're the BEST, Nikki! Hope it's a great day!

artfuldelight said...

YAY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIKKI!!! Actually dinner out with the family is probably the BEST present ever. With our crazy busy schedules and tight budget, getting out together like that really only happens on birthdays so it is EXTRA special.

Have a great day Nikki!!!

Happy Birthday Nikkie! Hope you day is filled with fun!!! My fav birthday present was a scrapbook album, which was all about me, given to me by my (then) husband and two kids!!! I thought it was the most beautiful present I had ever been given. Actually the album is what inspired me to start scrapbooking!!!
Enjoy your day!!

Tanya said...

Happy happy birthday Nikki! Beautiful cards ladies! One of my favorite gifts was when I was 7, my dad built me a playhouse! I knew I was getting it because it took a couple of weeks to build, but I loved it so much. It had 2 windows with flower boxes on the outside, curtains, a table and chairs, and my sized appliances,a refrigerator (with ice maker, plastic ice), washer, and dryer. Unlike the newer plastic ones these days mine were metal with very sharp corners, ouch, lol!

Naomi Armenta said...

Happy Birthday Nikki, may you have many blessings and be blessed throught the rest of the year!

My favorite gift ever is when my husband, then boyfriend, gave me a diamond necklace to match the earrings I had received for my HS graduation and made me a candlelight dinner! He's a keeper!

BrendaB said...

Happy birthday, Nikki! Hope you have a wonderful day!

My favorite birthday gift was the one I received on my 12th birthday - a Polaroid Swinger camera. I just thought that was the coolest camera ever! That started my love of photography, which eventually led me to scrapbooking, which led to stamping and cardmaking.....well, you get the picture!

Happy Birthday, Nikki!

I'm thinking that one of my favorite birthday gifts was the kayak I got as a kid. It gave me a lot of time in solitude on the pond in our backyard, and I just loved the time I spent in it.

Happy, Happy Birthday Nikki, and many fabulous years more!!!!
I would say my favorite present was a bouquet of purple carnations presented to me at a Surprise Tea House Party that my sons had planned to make 50 very, very special.

My favorite birthday present is always a party - even if I have to throw one myself! One time my parents and friends threw me a surprise party it was so much fun! but I wasn't dressed up as my dad told me they were taking me to a steak house instead of a fancy restaurant. My mom couldn't believe he did that!

A Sarasota said...

You don't have to enter me into the drawing, just wanted to say Happy Birthday to Nikki!!!! Great cards from everyone, too!

Ann said...

A very happy birthday, Nikki! And many many more!
My fave birthday gift. A few years ago we were camping and my birthday fell in the middle of the holiday. A cake and big celebration looked like it wouldn't happen. But hubs went to the camp store and came back with a lemon meringue pie, which beats a cake hands down for me anyway, creating a very memorable birthday moment. He's the best!

Lisa P said...

Happy Birthday!! Hope your day is fabulous. It's hard to choose a favorite. I remember my first bike though. My brother and dad had fixed up an old bike from a friend to be perfect for a little girl. It was such a great gift.

Manders said...

Happy birthday looks like a fun filled weekend for a present for my birthday
I guess I have to say camera so I can always treasure my memories

DebC said...

OOOOHHH These are some great gifts to win!! Happy Birthday Nikki!! Your products are the best!!! My favorite birthday present was a puppy from my hubby a year an a half ago. Her name is coco and she is a lhasa apso and the cutest little thing. She is a tom boy though so even though I put a cute little pink bow in her hair she is rough and rowdy!!
Have a great birthday!

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIKKI!!!!!
My fave B/D present was a purse full of real makeup on my 6th b/d
given to me by my Dear Grandmother...

Happy Birthday Nikki! Thanks for all the inspiration. My favorite adult birthday present was either the Cuttlebug from my husband or the fleece Spurs blanket from my Mother-in-law. As a teen, it was definitely the "free phone time" from my parents when I was sixteen.

My favorite present was when my DH surprised me with a trip for my 50th. We had moved the year before so we went back to visit our old friends.

Oh.. favorite present... my hubby got me an Easy Bake oven when I turned 30 because he knew I never got one as a kid. isn't that the sweetest ever???

Melinda Spinks said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIKKI!!! What a wonderful surprise from your team and I'm sure they are going to make your day extra special. Hope you have a fabulous day with a giant slice of cake! :)
Five years ago I was blessed with the sweetest birthday a mum could ever wish for... the birth of my son, only a matter of hours before my birthday began. Now, every year we get to celebrate two birthdays in two days so we make the most of it. :)

Charity said...

Happy Birthday Nikki! Hope you've had a great day.

I can't recall a specific birthday gift that's been my favorite. Birthday's are really low key in our house, but this past year my family made sure we went out to eat and hang out. That was wonderful.

Liane said...

Happy, Happy Birthday Nikki! Your DT made some amazing cards. What a wonderful surprise :) I hope you've been treated like a queen today.

I'd have to say my favorite birthday gift has been my Expression. A totally frivilous gift for a totally sensible gal. I NEVER would have spent that money on myself but my DH knew that I would LOVE it and I do!

Sandi said...

A very, very happy birthday Nikki...I hope it is one you will always remember. My favorite birthday gift was in 2009 when we took my 2 grandsons (age 7 & 3 to the Magic Kingdom here in Florida and they bought me a rubber duckie for my collection. It was Donald Duck in a pirate outfit and I will always cherish it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIKKI!!
My favorite birthday memory was when I was 10 (I think) and my mom planned a " day of fun". I woke up to a b-day card & my favorite candy waiting for me in the kitchen, my dad made my favorite b-fast & then we spent the day w/my aunt & cousins at a local carnival; ended the night w/homemade banana shakes (yummo) and my dad made a strawberry cake. Great day; I'm in my 30's now & even though I'm foggy on the year, I'll never forget that day!

Happy Birthday Nikki!!!!

My favorite birthday present was when my daughters and my hubby threw me an everything"red" party for my 50th! Red is my favorite color and they made sure everyone wore red, the decor was red, even the food had a red theme (such as beet salad). It was sooo much fun, I'll always treasure the memory of that party.

Alison Day said...

Happy Birthday Nikki! Hope you had an awesome day - your DT sure made some gorgeous cards!
My favourite present was the sapphire earrings my parents gave me for my 16th birthday. They were tiny but they were real and I felt like a Princess!!

eunice said...

Happy birthday!! Lots of good presents to be thankful for. But, this year was particularly great - a Kindle from my husband to take when I'm travelling and a Cricut for myself. :)

As for my fave birthday gift, it would be the spa vacation that my hubby gave me 2 years ago, the first year we were married!

I am sure that you had a super duper Birthday Nikki! May your life be one of surprises and happiness!!
My favorite birthday present was the digital camera that my husband got me 5 years ago...even though I said that I would probably never use it and didn't need it! What was I thinking?!!

Janet said...

Happy Birthday Nikki!!! My favorite birthday present ever was my dog Zoe!

Auntie Ang said...

Happy Birthday you have quite a lot going on.
Birthdays I try not to celebrate anymore because it's after the 39 part you know but you are only as old as you feel.
I guess I would have to say it's the scrapbook that my scrappity sister made me of all the nieces and nephews it was a lot of work and I still have it to this day.
She is so much more advanced but it's all the fun notes she took the time to have them write to me etc.
Gotta love scrap

Maggi said...

Happy birthday to you!! Favorite bday present? Hmmm, probably a trip to FL to see my BFF that dh gave me a few yrs ago!

Diane Iversen said...

Happy Birthday Nikki! I have had many great brithdays but my last one was one of the best - 36. I got the camera of my dreams and a new scrapbooking room! Doesn't get much better than that!

CarrieB said...

Happy Birthday!!! Best gift I got was a surprise b-day party and an engraved chain from my volleyball team when I turned 16 (a million years ago)!

mow180 said...

Happy Birthday Nikki. Three years ago my Dad gave me a check for $100. Now this may not seem like such a big thing but my Dad was 93 years old. I could hardly read his writing, his poor old hands were so shaky. He had put it in an envelope with a sticky note on it that simply said "All my love, Dad" My address was misspelled and he had scotch taped a used stamp on the envelope. I guess he was unable to get out to buy a stamp. I was so happy the Post Office delivered it.That was the last gift I got from Dad, I wish I had saved the check but I did save the sticky note.
I hope you get at least one present in your life that will evoke such memories for you.
Happy Days....

Hope you had a great birthday. Not sure what my fave birthday gift was. We usually go away every year for my b-day. So it's family vacay time. dramaqueensmum@gmail.com

Happy Birthday Nikki! My best bday present was a pandora bracelet and charms that DH and DS picked out for me.

Scrapamum said...

Happy Birthday Nikki!!! The best birthday present I ever received was from my husband. A trip to Vancouver Island (before we moved here). We had so much fun and loved it so much we decided to move there.

Monique Ouellette, Alberta Canada said...

Happy Birthday Nikki! Life is just beginning at age 39! On another note, my favorite birthday present was when my hubby surprised me with a trip to the big city and a rented hotel room with a Roman theme (round bed, pillars, jacuzzi with roman statues pouring out the water). It was just me and him, no kids, and we enjoyed a lovely meal, luxiourious accommodations, and topped off our short vacation with doing Karaoke. Of course this was a couple of decades ago, when Karaoke was the 'new' hip thing. I was so in love with it, that I bought my own equipment & became a karaoke D.J.

Ola said...

Happy Birthday Nikki!!! I hope it was wonderful and all you wanted it to be (what I read from the next post, it sounded great)!!!!

My favorite birthday was when my two sons (then 9 & 14) made me breakfast in bed (not really tasty) but I ate every single bite... and they even picked flowers & put them in a Spiderman cup for me!!! Then they gave me the best jammies EVER! They are so warm & cuddly... I wear them whenever possible, if I could I would wear them all the time, lol!

Thanks for sharing your special day with us!

Happy Birthday Nikki!
