Wonderful Friend’s Birthday

Yesterday it was one of my wonderful friend’s birthday – Michele.  Michele has been a wonderful friend for so long now, including being one of my bridesmaids, but Michele is also a fellow stamper!  A true kindred spirit!!  You can see her gorgeous creations here.  Michele and her husband put on a great family BBQ as always – it was a lovely way to spend the afternoon with them celebrating a special day.  Thanks, Michele & Dave!  And “Happy Birthday” again, Michele!

Naturally, I had to make an extra special birthday card for Michele and this was it …

And a close up is here too …

I’ve used the stamps En Francais, Wonderful Favourites, So Many Sayings and not so noticeable on the bottom of the card One of a Kind.  The colours are Sahara Sand and Bashful Blue (blue is a colour I always think suits Michele as she has lovely blue eyes!).  I also used the gorgeous styled silver hodgepodge from this months’ Spring Mini with white taffeta ribbon.  I coloured in each letter of the phrase “make a wish” with my marker pens … not sure I’m 100% happy with that, perhaps I should have stuck to neutral colours there.  What do you think?

Thanks for looking!

eScape Event with Think Happy Thoughts

I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to show you all what is happening for my eScape Event this coming Wednesday 25 June 2008.  Here is is though!

We will be making 5 different cards and a Bag-a-lope that will fit them all for you to take them home in.  All for the great price of $20.

I love this stamp set!  Think Happy Thoughts works perfectly with Stampin’ Up! punches.  Too much fun!

Book your place before Tuesday 24 June to come along to Parklea in Sydney, Australia.  Start time is 8pm.  I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 🙂

I’ll post close ups of the cards we’re making over the next few days.  This is the first card …

Have a great weekend!
