Endless Birthday Wishes in a Stampin' Up! Birthday Card for SB117
August 12, 2015
Last week I sadly let Sandi and Heather know that I had decided to step down from the Stamping and Blogging Design Team. It was just one of those things where you need to stop and re-evaluate where you are spending your time as life goes on. Each year brings different things with my family needs, my business is continuing to grow and I like to have some down time too, just for me, to do things that make me happy and nourish me. It's inevitable that sometimes you need to change focus to fit everything in. I think this quote sums it up best:
It's been a fabulous 12+ months with the team and I am so grateful for the fabulous opportunity. I know I will be friends with these lovely ladies for many years to come.
There will be lots more free paper-crafting inspiration coming your way from my blog, because if anything, I will probably have more time to create with just a blank piece of grid paper as my starting point. I am really looking forward to that. If you haven't already, make sure you subscribe to my blog posts (posts will be sent to your email) so you don't miss a thing.
So today we have my last Stamping and Blogging card, SB117.
I really like how my colours worked out in this one. I've used Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride for my stamping, picking up the colours from the beautiful English Garden Designer Series paper. Bruhstrokes is a great background stamp. In this case I stamped off once, as it would have been a little too heavy for my card otherwise.
Here's this week's sketch.
So now for the last time, let me direct you to the lovely Stamping and Blogging design team girls to see what they have done with this week's sketch. Lee and Erna are on holidays this week.
Claire Daly Australia (that's me!)
Caroline van der Straaten. Netherlands
Patrice Halliday-Larson, New Zealand
