Hello! It’s my birthday and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than a blog hop with my fabulous stamping friends.
Actually, I’m feeling very loved on my birthday evening as I hop with two wonderful groups of stamping friends.
This is blog hop A – the first list. There’s another thread which features blog hop B – the second list (click here to visit). You don’t want to miss the creations on the other side!!!
There’s no theme for tonight. Everyone is simply sharing with us something they’ve made that they love. In this crazy busy life, we sometimes need an excuse just to create for fun, for love and to be creative.
My birthday falls at a wonderful time of the Stampin’ Up! catalogue cycle. I get to spoil myself each year with new Stampin’ Up! and call them birthday presents.
The card I am sharing for blog hop A uses some of those birthday presents – Share What You Love DSP, Hand Delivered (Host) stamp set & Lined Alphabet stamp set.
This style of card is called a Pop Up Slider Card and I first saw it for my birthday a couple of years ago when Nicole Wilson sent one to me!
The middle panel slides up to reveal a hidden message in the centre.
For this card, I added to the birthday message using the Lined Alphabet stamp set messily coloured (to match the style of the DSP) using the Stampin’ Blends.
The balloons are also coloured with the Blends. Currently they are unorderable, but they’ll be back soon with new colours in the collection!!! I’m excited to get my hands on those!
This special card will be going to my birthday buddy – my mother-in-law!
Do you have a birthday buddy? Someone you share your celebrations with every year?
Many thank you to all my stamping friends who have joined me today to share in my celebrations through this hop!
Next up on hop A is my stamping bestie – Lou Kitzelman. So happy she’s part of my birthday!
