22 was a great year but that was 2 decades ago so, ha! ~ I don't remember why! Yikes!

Krista said...

When I was 5 I had a barbie b-day cake. It had a real barbie in it and her dress was the cake. This cake was the talk of all my little friends. That was many moons ago..lol!

Angie said...

My favorite birthday memory was actually just a couple of weeks ago! I have never been to Little Italy in Baltimore for a fancy dinner, and I LOVE pasta, so my wonderful boyfriend bought me an awesome black halter dress, shoes, and a clutch bag, and we went out on the town! That food was soooo good! I had some shrimp topped with mozzarella and prosciutto, broiled in white wine. And YUM!!!! Some of that crusty Italian bread.
Thanks for this giveaway!

Gorgeous card! I love it!!
My fave birthday memory was when I had ice-cream cake for the first time! I don't remember how old I was though. Quite young. And I had all my close friends there and I got cool prizes! Fun times! :) Thanks!

My favorite birthday memory is when I received my bike for my birthday and my friend pushed me up and down the street on training wheels trying to teach me to ride. Still love to ride bike today--makes me feel young again

Mt\y favorite birthday memoery was almost 3 years ago when I was told by my doctor that was expecting. My little Mackenzie is such a ball of fire. She is def. the best Birthday gift I ever got.

Doris said...

I was 13 and my Mom baked wonderful cake and decorated it that it was looking like real book, all my firend was astonished:)

Melissa said...

My 18th birthday party was awesome. I had a pool party/sleepover. I invited my new college friends plus my high school and childhood friends. We had so much fun!

leanne said...

I love your card! What a cute stamp set. My favorite birthday memories are sledding down a huge hill in our neighborhood in the middle of the night. My birthday is in April and there always seems to be snow around in Colorado...so whenever I had a birthday slumber party, this is what we would do. Sledding by the moonlight! But, even better was my 21st birthday when my husband proposed to me!

jenstamps said...

On my 18th birthday my parents gave me a diamond necklace I had been looking at for some time but didn't want to ask for. It was the first "real" piece of jewelry I ever had. I still have it to this day! I plan on giving it to my daughter when she turns 16!

Heather said...

I was five and my Dad was away on business. I was so sad he was gone and missed my birthday. I wanted a hamster so bad, but didn't get one. He called to wish me a happy birthday and asked if I had gotten everything I wanted...then my sister and mom came out with a cage and little teddy bear hamster and I went crazy..still remember that day, such a Daddy's Girl! I loved that hamster! Just one of those great memories, from 24 years ago!
Thanks for the chance!

strent said...

The year that I turned 10 (at least I think it was that year), I got the much begged for/prayed for and whined for: banana seat bicycle. Does anybody else remember those? Man, was I cool then. I could be one of the big kids.... what great memories. Thanks...

not neat freak said...

Well my last birthday was way fun. I was invited by a local tv station to be an audience member on the breakfast show. All audience members who were celebrating their birthday got a blackeberry. We ate pancakes and sausage for breakfast, had a huge birthday cake, ballon games, watched a magician and I was chosen to play a game. I won some athletic clothing and running shoes.
The date was February 29, I turned 13, teenager at last! (Thats 52 in your years!)
It sure is nice to have such a fuss made about your birthday, especially when it only comes once every 4 years.

Charline said...

17.. was the best.. celebrate on the beach in Mexico... my first trip !!! unforgettable

Em's Place said...

40 was my favorite... I had my son just six days later. It was awesome!

Sandy said...

Great card! and thanks for the chance to win. My favorite b-day was when I was 21 and my husband (boyfriend at the time)took me up to the mountains and had rented a cabin for us to say in.

Dana said...

My 29th birthday by far. My first baby arrived in this world just four days before and she was there to celebrate! :) We even put a party hat on her head!!!

Sue D said...

This set is so cute! My favorite birthday memory was a surprise party when I was 13. My mom couldn't get me to change out of my comfy mismatched clothes. Boy was I surprised when I went downstairs!

jayne said...

I was 20 years old, a mere 32 years ago! My gift was a bentwood rocker (which I still have) from my fiance. Thanks for a chance at the blog candy!

Sarah S. said...

Favorite cake is Angel Food cake. One year, at age 7 or so, my mom dusted the cake with lots of powdered sugar for me.Must have not had time to make frosting or something. When I blew out the candles...yah, you guessed it...powder sugar all over. It made everyone laugh and cleaning up the powder sugar wasn't that bad. Memories, got to love them.

Monica said...

My 13th B-day is my Fav/Best Memory!
My G-Ma came and picked me up to take me out shopping..In the meantime Mom gathered all my friends at home for a "Suprise Party" when I came back from shopping and opened the door there was all my friends and Fam screaming HBD! I about fainted because it was unexpected and shocking! She def had that one pulled off!

Barb M. said...

Being a Christmas baby, birthdays weren't always the best b/c let's face it - when opening Christmas presents who wants to celebrate a birthday! I always got the famous line "Save one for later to open as a your birthday gift" what a bummer to hear that as a kid! But when I was 22 my husband (then fiancee) gave me a cake (with no red or green icing), and had my presents wrapped in birthday wrap (again NOT Christmas wrap). I loved it! It may have only been icing and wrapping paper but that was the first b-day that I've ever had that wasn't Christmas themed! It was my day! Thanks for the chance to win!

Jana said...

Love the card!!

My favorite birthday was when I turned 6 and my grandparents surprised me with a pink and yellow bike. My grandfather died later that year and that bike meant more to me than anything, because he choose it for me with no help from the women folk.

Ashley said...

I just loved spending my birthday with my son the first year he was born. Part of the day it was just the two of us. It was very special.

Chrystal said...

My favorite birthday memory is actually many birthdays - it's all the birthdays when my whole family still lived at home (Or at least near each other,) and everyone would get together for each persons birthday. Thanks for the great blog candy giveaway!

Lori said...

My best birthday memory is from my 26th birthday. It wouldn't seem like it should be a "happy" memory since my husband had pneumonia and my stepdaughter had caught the chicken pox (which my daughter, at 5 mths old, would get next a couple of weeks later). But what made it so wonderful that was even though my husband was feeling so bad, he still had a little party with just our immediate family for me complete with cake and presents! I always remember how special I felt that he would go to the trouble even though he was so sick.

Martha said...

favorite birthday - I guess was my 16th. My first real boy/girl party. Music, dancing, mom made me 2 beautiful cakes. colors were my favorite purple and black.

btw, beautiful card.

ladyb266 said...

Cute card!!! Hmmm... a favorite Bday from the past would be my 5th Bday! We just moved to New Mexico from living in England. My dad was in the Air Force. So the few friends that came over to help celebrate got to have spooky glasses of kool aid. My dad poured kool aid in looney tune glasses and put dry ice in them too. The kids were in awwe of this! TFS!

My favorite birthday was when I turned 11. I had a party at the roller rena. Me and my 4 BFFs! We were having a grand time. Suddenly one of my BFFs fell and broke her arm. We tried calling my parents but they were not home (way before cell phones) So we called the mother of the girl with the broken arm. She drove an El Cameno. She came to get us and all 5 of us girls and mom piled into the front of that thing to go to the hospital. Why is that my favorite birthday? Cause it was just about fun and friendship, and didn't cost hundreds of dollars.
Thanks for the chance to win!!!!

I was 20 when my friends gave me a surprise party at college. It was my first surprise party and my friends made it special for me.

I would love to win this set!

Stampvamp said...

Actually, I'm not sure what age I turned...but the memory was this...my mom and sister made a scavenger hunt for me. I remember having to find a certain thing and then there would be a new clue to the next item I had to find. It was a lot of fun and it ended in a birthday Barbie that had a little lipstick and she really kissed you.

Linda Stamps said...

I believe it was my 7th or 8th b'day. My mom had a party for me, but before the party started our doorbell rang 2 or 3 times with little boys bringing me flowers. We later realized they had been picking them out of the neighbour's garden. lol

Karen M said...

When I was little my mom would dress me up like a little princess with a pretty pink dress and mini (paper) tiara. I'm a summer baby so I have pictures of me running around in that cute dress, barefoot, just waiting for my friends to arrive.

Brenda said...

My favorite b-day memory is from two years ago. My son had just got his first job and bought me a double weeping cherry tree, he knew that I had been wanting one. I cried when he gave it to me, it was a very proud mom moment for me. Great card. Thanks for the chance.

Maria Matter said...

What a great stamp set! Your card is fabulous! Bright festive colors, love K&co papers too!
My fav b'days are now! I get to be Queen for the day and do whatever I want, and with a family of six that is rare!! Blessings!

Pam in Ar. said...

Let’s see…ummmmmm my favorite birthday memory is probably my 40th birthday.

Let me start out by saying, yes, I do have a family of my own…3 kids, (all married), a husband, grandkids,(that I adore), but I think what sticks out in my mind as special, is my 40th birthday, MY brother and sister along with my dad, we all got together in one central place (we all live in different states and they have families of their own too) and celebrated! It was special because it made me feel like a kid again. Most people dread their 40th, but mine I think turned out to be my most special one.

I love this set and would love to win it! Thanks for giving me this opportunity.

Pam

Ida said...

Very Festive! - Well I think some of those "Mile Stone" birthdays have been interesting. Like the year I turned 30 and received "Happy 30th Birthday" wishes 30 times on my computer email at work from another coworker and of course numerous OLD lady comments from my 3 brothers.

Sarah said...

Sooooo cute! Well.. seeing that i've only had 20 birthdays, I'm going to say my 16th was the best. I got a brand new car and was able to spend time with my friends.. after being sick on my REAL birthday. And yes, I look very sick in my drivers license picture. :(

Just wait till Jan. 2009 and I'll tell ya my 21st was the best! :)

Ink, paper and BLING! said...

I think my fave birthday would have to be this year, 38. I was in Hawaii and got to spend it with my family and my best friend at the beach, and then go to the spa, can't get better tehn that.

Stephanie said...

My favorite birthday was my last one because I was married! :D My husband took me on a secret weekend getaway and we had a blast!

lindagerig said...

I think that just going to my grandma's house and having a nice dinner and cake afterwards were my favorite birthdays. Linda Gerig

Raquites said...

great colors on your card. Hmmm...best birthday. I guess I'll go with my 13th birthday when my parents took me shopping to pick out all new stuff to redo my room (it was still the same from when I was 2) paint, bedding, curtains, everything. Then we all got to decorate the room together the next week.

Annabelle said...

I was 12, and my mom made a party i which she turned the house into a discotheque, I even has a disc-jockey and everything. so much fun.

Kim said...

My favorite birthday was my 40th! Sounds crazy, I know! lol I was just getting ready to have surgery and was rather down. I had no family around, they all live far away, and my hubby invited my best friend over, and we had a beautiful dinner, and my b/f gave me all sorts of stamping goodies, but my husband handed me this beautiful box. Before I could open it he said, your 40th birthday is something you should never forget, so when you wear this, think of this day. I opened it and there was a BEAUTIFUL gold necklace, bracelet and earrings in it. I am so lucky! I think the reason this was my favorite birthday is because I really thought it was just going to be another day, had no expectations, and it turned out to be awesome!!!

Thank you for the chance at your wonderful blog candy!

Zgirl said...

My favorite birthday memory is when I had a party in the 5th grade at an ice cream place and me and my friends got to eat "the volcano" which was two feet high filled with nothing but ice cream, hot fudge and whipped cream =)

Anonymous said...

I love your card and how you stamped a portion of the image in the circles! Wouldn't have thought of that myself!!!!

It's hard to pick just one birthday memory that was a favorite. Every one seems to be special for a different reason. I guess one that stands out in my memory is when I was about 7 and I had a bunch of my girl friends over after school for a party and my mom made homemade pizza. Everyone was so shocked that you could make pizza at home. The year we graduated from high school one of the girls and I were talking and she mentioned the homemade pizza and how awesome it was and how she'd love for mom to make her another one! ~ M&M's

SCRAP AND CRAFTS BY MICHELE said...

My 32 years old, almost 2 years ago, beacuase my famlily was complete.

Valerie said...

Birthdays were never much fun in my family growing up, I shared a birthday with BOTH of my parents and I think maybe they resented that as much as I did.

However the year I turned 16 (such a magic number for a girl) my 3 closest school friends took me out for dinner, a cheesy restaurant with waitresses in poodle skirts and jukeboxes on the tables. The wait staff brought me a cake and sang to me, made me wear a beanie hat, then gave me a polaroid of the event. Silly as it sounds I've never felt more special than that day more than 20 years ago.

What a very colorful and cheerful card. Thanks for the chance to win this set.

Harley Dee said...

My birthday is 2 days from St. Patrick's Day, so one year my mom did everything in green. I loved it! She even made sandwiches with green bread, made at a local bakery. It was so much fun :)

Linda said...

When I was 8 I got my first bike---It was a huge surprise because my parents did not have a lot of money.

Pia said...

Oh, I had a doll cake when I was 4 I guess. Our neighbor made it. I am the youngest of 3 and my mother never took that many pictures, this is one picture that she did take!

What a fun card.
My favorite Birthday was when I got my first two wheel bike. I remember it was bright pink. The handles were white with bright tassles coming out of the ends. I was so excited when I got my new bike I started jumping up and down and yelling. I had some much fun riding my new bike. I remember my Dad, Mom and Uncle took turns pushing me up and down the street. What a perfect day!

Julie (Joypup on SCS) said...

Oh, this is such a nice set!
I had the best birthday EVER this year... at age 42! I managed to get TIME TO MYSELF ;^)* I have two small kids, and a friend took them for most of the day... then I took myself out to lunch, a time at the craft store, and a soak at a local Korean Spa that gives you free entrance on your birthday... I was soooooo relaxed and happy at the end of the day. And I have a GREAT memory of it.

Angelina said...

The first year all my children were 2 and older, they threw me a "party". It was wonderful because they were so excited about the big day!

One of my favorite birthday's was the year I got my doll house. I played with it forever.

Tammy said...

My favorite birthday memory was when I was about 9 and I got a bom-box radio. My best friend and I danced all day all summer that year in the street, in my bedroom. Anywere we were I had that radio and we spent hours dancing our little hearts out for anyone who would watch....lol

I think one of my favorites was actually one for my husband. I surprised him with a trip to an amusement park and we rode roller coasters (without kids) all day. It was awesome.

Cathy Y. said...

I think mine would be the one I am going to have next Friday. LOL! I am fairly new to stamping and card making and really need some Nestabilities and a die cut machine. Don't you think that would just about make the best birthday ever!
Thanks for the chance to win.

Lori said...

My 28th...I was on bedrest in the hospital big pregnant with my triplets. The nurses brought in Mexican pot luck for me and my favorite chocolate ice-cream. I have never received so much attention and b-day wishes!! My mom, hubby, and 2-year old daughter were there too, which was icing on the cake!! I delivered 5 days later!

Sarah A said...

When I was 8 we had one of our hometown party type of things. But he most fabulous activity was the year my parents attached string to a popsicle stick on one end and a pack of gum on the other. They entertwined milse of this yarn and it was a blast to follow!

leenda said...

Fantastic b-day card! My Dad gave me a US Savings Bond for my b-day. I still have it. The reason it is special is that my Dad passed away just 3 months later.

Sharon said...

Birthdays were so much fun back in the day! After I turned 40, birthdays just weren't the same (wink!). My favorite birthday memory was my 13th. It was the first time I hosted a slumber party...need I say more?

Marge Sexton said...

I had a very special Birthday gift in 1988, I brought my baby son home from the hospital on my birthday. That had to be my very favorite B-Day of all time. Of course, you can figure out how old he is now, and of course, he will always be my baby!

Karen M. said...

my favorite birthday memory was a surprise birthday party given to me by my son and sister for my

I have had so many I can't pick just one! hee hee. I do like my birthdays better now that I have kids. They make it more special for me so to pick just one would be difficult. Kids make everything great!

Mandy said...

I have tons of great birthday memories, but the one that really stands out is that on my 28th birthday my DH and I found out that our first born was going to be a girl! It has yet to be topped and that was 5 years ago! - Mandy

sferris5 said...

What a great card!

As the years go by, it gets harder to remember any birthdays so I'll go with my 50th. My friends surprised me with 50 balloons at my desk at work (forget keeping it quite!) and then taking me on a surprise dinner cruise. I had a great time on it and it was such a treat to celebrate with them.

Mary

reeree62 said...

I think it would be my 45th b-day when my DH surprised me with a party. And now, ALMOST 5 years later is my big 5-0... in about 3 weeks. We're planning a party together this time. So ask me again after that! Bet I'll have a new answer for ya! ;-)

It's hard to pick just one. BUt my 21st birthday was pretty special. My mother decided to give me a surprise party. I caught on but it was fun watching my friends squirm as they tried to keep the surprise!

Justme said...

Favorite Birthday was when I was when I was 15, and my first real boyfriend bought me a real dozen of long stemmed red roses, I still have the vase and I'm 53 now! And he gave me a gold ring with my initial on it ( friendship ring) and my dad was fit to be tied and I was not allowed to have my boyfriend up in my bedroom anymore even though the door was open and the whole family was always home! LOL

Justine said...

Childhood birthdays seem so distant but my 30th, that was FUN. My husband rented the base swim pool and threw a Surprise birthday party for me. I am planning the same type event for his 40th next month.

Ravengirl said...

My most memorable birthday was my 30th. We (my boyfriend and I) had family spending Labor Day Weekend with us because we had just moved into a new house together. As far as I knew, they were up for a housewarming party. Well, my boyfriend invited a bunch of my friends and family for a surprise birthday party and then, get this, asked me to marry him. So I had a surprise birthday, housewarming and engagement party for my 30th birthday! It was huge! Thanks so much for asking. I love to tell that story. Thanks also for the chance to win!

Kristen said...

I love this card, and the set. I can;t remember and specific b-day, but what I do love, is the memories of my birthdays as a little girl. My mom would bake a cake, All my friends would dress in a fancy dress, we would play pin the tale on the donkey. The table would be set with a paper table cloth, and we would all where the cardboard cone hats and sing happy birthday. Very simple. Having to young children, I know how out of control b-days can get. When I was growing up, things seemed so simple and FUN!!!!

colleen said...

My favorite birthday memories are when it actually snows on my birthday - it is peaceful to watch, fun to play in, and hot chocolate tastes even better when you're watching the snowflakes make their journey to earth. Thanks for the chance to win. I just adore the little tiny cupcake in this set!

clhenry99 said...

I would say one of my best memories for birthday's when I was growing up was having my mom make the cake. She was so good at it and always did these really awesome cakes. My favorite was the barbie cake. It was a real barbie doll and her dress was all cake and frosting. I loved it!

MichelleH said...

Last year my son brought me a cookbook and said 'pick out a cake, but don't make it too hard, Dad says to remind you we can't bake as well as you do' rofl After baking said not-so-hard cake, all 3 of my kids decorated it. They used an entire canister of sprinkles. It was the crunchiest cake I have ever eaten, but it was made with love and it was fabulous.

sulzzz said...

I was 8 when my uncle brought me to a little girls' clothes boutique to choose my very own b day gift! I had so much fun choosing from the wide range of dresses and being treated like a little princess!
Warmest regards,
sulzzz

rozie640 said...

I think my favorite birthday was my 10th. I received a "Brownie" camera for my birthday and I loved it! It was so much fun taking pictures of my friends any time I wanted to. It was the start of my life long passion of taking pictures. I rarely leave the house without my camera, just in case!!! Thanks for the blog candy offering. You girls must have fun giving stuff away!

Vansmom said...

The birthday party that I remember loving best as a kid was the one we had at Grandma R's house and all my friends came and we played ring-around-the-rosy in the front yard. That would be first above the time that Sarahbell got sick in the car on the way to Burger King!

Val said...

My favourite birthday was my 16th birthday. That year, I received my very own telephone...with it's own private line...ok, I had to share it with my siblings, but it was in my bedroom. That was a long time ago, especially since I celebrated my 50th birthday on Sat (Aug 9), but I remember that birthday like it was yesterday!
