Tracey’s 40th B’day!

Well that weekend just flew by! Lots to do makes time go quick. It was a busy weekend here on my blog too. We had the Control Freaks Blog Tour that started Saturday night and then my Paper Players Guest Designer post on Sunday morning. The Blog Tour was great! It’s quite awesome to be in such good creative company. And did you see all of the other designers cards over at the Paper Players? They just keep on getting better and better! I really do love being able to have the ability to share my creative passion with you and to be surrounded by such talented people. Let’s not forget all of you! Your comments and visits make me want to be the best I can be! So thank you very much!

Before we get started with today’s post just a quick reminder that Sale-A-Bration officially starts tomorrow! Get those lists ready and get your FREE products for every $50 you spend. If you spend $150 you will also get a pack of Silver Glimmer Paper to celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 25 Anniversary in addition to $25 in Hostess money. Spend $400 (or host a party with $400 in total sales) and you get 8 FREE Sale-A-Bration items, the Silver Glimmer Paper and a Sycamore Street Product Bundle (Stamp Set, Ribbon, Buttons, Designer Series Paper) plus $65 in Hostess money and one item at 50% off. How cool is that?!

Today I’m posting a birthday card for my cousin Tracey in England. I would doubt that she has received it yet so I’m hoping that she forgets to look today! She is turing 40 today and she honestly doesn’t look a day over 26! Her favorite color is pink and she manages a pub in London so this is what I came up with for her. The base of the card is Rose Red Card Stock. For the background I embossed a piece of Pink Pirouette with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The flags at the top are cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies. The top one is stamped in Rose Red with an image from the Hearts a Flutter Stamp Set and the lower one is stamped in the same color using the Memorable Moments Stamp Set. The middle panel contains images from the Happy Hour Stamp Set. The drinks are stamped in Pink Pirouette and the olive in what else… Old Olive! I backed it with piece of Rose Red and all of the pieces, including the greeting, are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Speaking of the greeting it is also from the Happy Hour Stamp Set and again stamped in Rose Red. I think that the card fills the pink and pub manager requirements, don’t you? I hope that Tracey likes the card and that you enjoyed it too. Thank you for spending some time with me and I hope that you all have a very nice Monday!
