Playful Pals Koala – Heading North for Shannon

Today is Shannon West’s birthday.  If you’re a Stampin’ Up! devotee, you’ll probably recognise Shannon as the brains (& beauty) behind the #imbringingbirthdaysback movement.

Happy Birthday Shannon West #imbringingbirthdaysback. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

Social media & technology have made the humble card obsolete, so Shannon is encouraging us all to send more birthday cards!

This is where it all started…

I’m know Shannon will be getting lots of happy mail on her special day – I’m really hoping mine makes it on time!

{I secretly suspect it will be quicker for me to send something overseas than over east!!!}

I couldn’t go past a locally inspired creation when I was designing a birthday card for Shannon.

The Playful Pals stamp set features in the current Occasions catalogue (ends 31st May 2016) and will be appearing in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue (not long to go now!).  Currently, you’re able to get it in a bundle with the Pyramid Pals framelits and save 15%.  Although both the stamp set & framelits will be available after 1st June 2016, the bundle discount will no longer apply.


I’ve been having fun making all kinds of Playful animals and I am delighted to welcome this cute koala to the family!
