My favorite birthday memory is when my daughter Ashley had her 1st birthday. She had open heart surgery that day, and when I saw her in the recovery room, alive and well, I knew God had given us the gift of life, Ashley's life. That was the best gift I have ever received!

Maria Therese said...

Best birthday memory is when I was a kid and got a cat, had it for almost 19 years before she passed away! That's a great gift!

Happy birthday!!! Love the new releases and the cards by the DT are awesome! My favorite birthday memory is celebrating my 25th birthday with my mom. I've always told her it's really her birthday since she was the one giving birth. We both took the day off work and spent the day having lunch and shopping (as I was 5 months pregnant at the time).

Lola Azul said...

Happy Birthday! My favorite birthday memory was when I turned 30. I was out shopping and when I returned, I remember driving right past my house (all our houses are identical) and thinking gosh, someone is having a party AGAIN. Then I realised, hey! That's my house! Hubby had managed to throw me a surprise party and I didn't have a single clue! :) Thanks for a chance to win!

Grace said...

happy birthday greeting farm!!!!

my favourite birthday memory was when i turned 15 and every year I always had a birthday party... but that year I was feeling kinda sad for some reason, and one of my best friends & I were walking home from cheer leading practice, and she told me to hangout at her house & we'll call the girls over to watch some chick flick & have pizza, and I kept saying... nah... I'm kinda feeling bummed, but she kept saying "come..." and I finally said OK... and when I went to her house, ALL my friends were there to give me a SURPRISE birthday party!!! IT WAS my BEST birthday party ever!!!

Stephanie Wright said...

Wow can't believe you're 3 already! One of my earliest brithday memories is mum and dad buying my a lovely little market stall but i had more fun playing with the cardboard box!

Frea said...

Hi there, love these new cuties!! And enjoyed all the inspiration of the hop!! My best birthday memory is the one where I turned 18. A far away relative came by and handed me a gift saying it was a birthday present from my grandmother. I didn't understand at first, because my grandmother died before I was born. When I opened it the package contained a beautiful silver bracelet and my father reckognized it straight away as his mother's bracelet that was given to her by her parents when she turned 18. Before she died she had given it to the mother of my niece and said she could keep it but if her only son was to get a daughter the bracelet was to be given to her, and when I turned 18 my niece fulfilled that promise. Needless to say I'm very attached to that bracelet. How special is it to get a birthday present from your grandmother that never even knew you. Sorry about the long story but there you have it, my favourite birthday memory. Hugs, Frea

CraftyDee said...

Happy 3rd birthday TGF! Love the new images, they are so cute! Anya's hair is just gorgeous!

A favourite birthday memory is from when I was a child, my mom and I would always make the favours together that I'd give to the kids in my class. I remember the banana favour, each banana had a hula skirt and a candy face :)

Brenda said...

Happy 3rd birthday TGF!!! My favorite b-day memory is my sons first birthday.

Nat said...

I am so excited for these little birthday stamps!
My birthday memory is when I turned 13...no one remembered. I went to school and felt sad that no one said happy birthday to me. My mom remembered part way through the day and came to my class to let me know she had party stuff ready when I got home.
From then on, I advertised my birthday. In January for my 30th, I wore a tiara all day and let everyone know it was my birthday!

Happy 3rd Birthday!! I {heart} TGF and loved the fun birthday hop!!

grandmabonnie said...

Happy 3rd birthday TGF! My favorite birthday memory is Angel Food cake, my mom would make one for me, but she put her homemade icing on it...yummy!

Shaela said...

Great previews of two awesome new stamps!

My favorite birthday memory happened every year while I was growing up. As a child, I didn't get to see my dad much or spend time with him because he worked so much. But every year on my birthday I would wake up to find a beautiful flower arrangement on my dresser with a note from him. Then he would get me out of school and take me to lunch anywhere I wanted. It was such a sweet, special time that I looked forward to every year. :)

April said...

What a great preview! I love the new BD Ian and can think of so many of my son's friends to use him for!! I love birthdays and one of my favorite memories is of making my DH a huge layer cake which had chocolate chip cookie, choc and vanilla cake layers, brownies and ice cream....it sure seemed like I baked for days!!

Jamie said...

Happy 3rd birthday! All of these projects are so cute! Love the new stamps! My best birthday was probably this past year because it's the first one I got to celebrate with my wonderful little boy!

Love the previews!

My favorite birthday memory was probably my 30th birthday. My daughter was almost 4 yrs old and my twins were almost six months old, and we were in the middle of a record snowfall! We tried to get out of the driveway in the morning for me to get to work and take the kids to the sitters, but we couldn't manage with all the snow. So, the kiddos and I had a nice relaxing day at home for my birthday. And to top it off, it was a Friday, so I had a three day weekend! Thanks for the chance to win!

Jenn Borjeson said...

So cute - everyone did a great job! My favorite birthday memory would have to be when I turned 22. I had just had my first baby 2 weeks earlier, and he was just the best birthday present anyone could ever ask for. :) He just turned 18 last weekend - but don't try to figure out how old that makes me! LOL :)

Heidi Brawley said...

OMG one of my best Birthdays was my 31st Bday! I had a friend working in the ticket office at the AZ Diamondbacks! He said to come on up for my bday and he would get me & 3 of my friends seats to the game!!! OMG he gave us seats in the front row on the Astros dugout!!! It was an awesome view of the game and I got to talk to the "late" Jose Lima (which Jose saw us the next day during batting practice and remembered us that he put us on his player guest list for tickets for the following nights game!!!!!) was soo Awesome! Saw 3 games in row that Bday week! I could not believe he remembered the name because he didn't write it down anywhere. He continued practicing throwing pitches! We called my friend in the ticket office to make sure he left us tickets for real and he said Yep He sure did!!!! AWESOME!!!!
Hugs, Heid Brawley
PS LOVE the new Birthday Anya 2 and Birthday Ian!!! they are both soooo darn cute!!!!

Awesome inspiration. Love the new birthday cuties. My favorite birthday memory... when I turned 8. My birthday is the end of July and Mom and Dad thought it would be fun to save some sparklers to put on my cake in place of candles... looked awesome and everyone loved it, only problem, you can't blow a sparkler out. They melted the cake and caught the table cloth and plates, etc on fire. LOL!! It all worked out in the end, but it's definitely a birthday I will NEVER forget!!

Lena said...

I commented and forgot to put my favorite birthday memory so I had to delete that one and start over. Happy Birthday Greeting Farm!!! I remember when you first started and I got the unicorn digi. Been hooked every since. My best birthday memory is my 10th when my parents closed down the arcade they owned at the time and let me invite friends over to stay the night in the arcade. It was a blast

Pixie said...

What cute new stamps! I love the cards getting them too! I'm new to TGF but want to wish you a very happy birthday anyway. :)

Debbie808 said...

These stamps are adorable!!!! I can't wait to get them! Happy 3rd birthday greeting farm!!!!

Brandi said...

Happy 3rd Birthday! And you don't look a day older. :-) My favorite birthday memory is my 21st birthday. My best friend snuck into my apartment while I was at work and decorated it with balloons, banners, streamers, confetti, presents and even a cake. I was completely surprised and over the moon. It's awesome to have friends like that!

Divine said...

The new stamps are so cute. All the cards looks great :)

Every year is my favorite birthday because I always celebrate it with my favorite people (my family and friends) Next year I will be 30 and thinking of making a big party, hehe. And maybe it will turn out to be my favorite party ever, lol.

JennyKozar said...

Helen M. L. said...

Lisa M. said...

Favorite birthday memory! One year when i was working, my hubby was in my car waiting for me when I got off from work. He'd had his mom drop him off. He was waiting with roses and a new gorgeous fancy bracelet! Then we went out for dinner and it was just the perfect night! I have a very romantic hubby which is super fab!

Love these birthday stamps so feel free to pick me to win! <3 LOL!

GCLmom said...

Birthdays are for celebrating! Congrats on your 3rd!!! I have a summer birthday, which meant your friends would forget while on summer vacation. My senior year in high school was spent 'kidnapping' friends on their 18th birthday and parading them around at the local ice cream parlor, introducing them to strangers. Well, my birthday came and went and I was really disappointed. A few days later, I was 'kidnapped' and ended up back at home, where my (very conservative) parents had the backyard set up for a party with my buddies there. I wasn't forgotten! It was an enjoyable evening, visiting with them and celebrating my birthday. I still see these friends decades later on a fairly regular basis even though we live in different parts of the state and they still mean everything to me! :)

Jodi said...

Happy 3rd Birthday TGF! The new birthday stamps are just adorable and the DT did a fantastic job showing them off :)

My favorite birthday memory would be my 30th when my husband planned a surprise party for me. But, I also have to say that each of my kids first birthdays hold a special place in my heart as well. Loved watching them eat birthday cake for the very first time and then end up wearing most of it.

ShaniKulani said...

Cant wait for all the blog hoppin fun :) My fav bday memory would be the first one I shared with my hubby ;) it happened to be my 21st

Damaris said...

A Big Hug to TGF on your birthday. You are so awesome!! Love the new stamps and can't wait to get my hands on them...hehe.

x0, Damaris

Tracy Kolisnyk said...

Happy 3rd birthday TGF! Love the previews! Hard to pick a fav BD memory BUT my 7 year old daughter's recent birthday was the best because she's decided that she wants to do a fundraiser for her birthdays each year now rather than receive personal gifts... this year she donated several bags of dog food to a local Dog Rescue Organization! She has a heart of gold! And my 2 younger children are following in her footsteps. :)

Krissynae said...

Happy Birthday!!!!

I guess I could say this year was ne of my favs. My birthdy was on the 17th of July. I was awaken by the sound my my 22 month old foster baby running into my room yelling Mama Mama. Then she says luv you. That is the first time she said that to me.
