Hello … bonjour! Hope your weekend was wonderful … and that the week ahead will be too! We’re starting it off well at Time Out because today we have a surprise challenge … it’s in honour of our lovely leader, Sandie, who is celebrating a special birthday! It’ll run alongside our usual fortnightly one … and the theme’s been specially tailored for the event … it’s CAS with an option of purple (both of which are close to Sandie‘s heart!). My take on these favourites is below … hopefully it’s made it across La Manche and is with the birthday girl already. Happy, Happy Birthday, my friend … may your day be filled with love and laughter … and your year ahead be blessed with fun, joy and good health!
I cut a white card panel with a Winnie & Walter scalloped/pierced frame and die cut the Avery Elle happy into it. Some post it tape behind the happy kept the insides of the letters in place while I removed the word, sponged Distress Ink over the panel (fading out towards the top) and stamped the SSS sentiment. I reinserted the word and stamped the Papertrey blooms into the y … which became the vase! The panel was popped up on the card base on craft foam and I highlighted the flower centres with a white gel pen.
How would you like to come along to the birthday celebration … we’d love it if you joined us in the CAS-with-an option-of-purple gallery … and I know Sandie would be delighted! Not only do you get to send this special someone some love, you’ll also be in the running for a prize, thanks to our Teamie, Lynn … a $25 GC to Simon Says Stamp will be awarded to a randomly drawn player! Do hope you’ll be able to make it to the party … there’s plenty of time as we’ll be celebrating for a fortnight … and can always share some cake and bubbles … look …
Kylie, of Happy Little Stampers fame (among others!) is also having a surprise linky party for Sandie over at her blog … it too will run for two weeks … here‘s your invitation to join in the fun there too!
