Happy Birthday to Me! :)


Hi there!

Last Friday was my '6th Stampin' Up!' Birthday :)

6 years!

So what do you do when you have a Birthday?

Throw a party of course.

So I had a free class for my creative ladies - that's a party!

We made the above cards, had food & fun & frivolity & freebies :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Make sure you check out the new goodies in the Occasions Catalogue & the freebies in the Sale-a-bration booklet!

Artful Stampers Blog Hop - Birthday Candles


Hi again!

Thanks for hopping by from ALISA'S BLOG

This week's hop is a sketch challenge - join in if you like! :)




Here's my take on the sketch.

I got to ink up my new 'Balloon Bash' stamp set & cut into the matching 'Birthday Bash' papers.

Love the colours in this pack of papers:
Bermuda Bay
Calypso Coral
Crushed Curry
Mossy Meadow
Night of Navy
Tangelo Twist
Whisper White

(I used all but the Mossy Meadow in this card!)

I also learnt that Crystal Effects doesn't really like my Queensland humidity...it took a bit longer to dry :)
