Happy Birthday Sandie!!

A very Happy (belated) Birthday to Sandie; she of London Days fame. Sandie recently celebrated a milestone birthday, and I wanted to wish her the very best and make a special card. I'm very late with this, but the sentiment remains. You all know her, and if you don't (and if you don't then I don't know where you've been hiding...) click on the link and have a nice, leisurely wander around her blog! Sandie is one of those bloggers whose cards are always delightful, filled with delicious white space, and many times have purple on them! I love stopping by her blog to see her latest creations. You'll find her as a DT member on some of the most popular challenge sites in blogland, and it's no wonder; she's an amazing cardmaker! It's a pleasure to "know" her! Someday, if I ever make it across the pond, I hope to actually meet her in person! I'm sure if that happens, London will never be the same!

Card?, you ask? Uh-huh. Yep. You betcha. It's her birthday (or in my case, an extension of it) after all. Couldn't let her celebration go by without one!


My darling daughter Cathy is the world's greatest lover of all things purple. Sandie is a close second! Naturally, I had to go with a dash of purple for her card. The 'sentiment' is a die cut from MFT, and the sweet little flower is from SSS's new Wild Beauty set. Got out a couple of Zig markers to color the bloom, and then added a smidgen of Stickles in the center for a bit of pizazz. Overall, a pretty CAS card; just the way the birthday girl likes them! It's on its way, I promise, Sandie!

To Sandie:

Happy birthday my friend. Hope that your day was celebrated exactly the way you wanted, and that your upcoming year is as sweet as you are. I wanted to throw you a little party here, but DH's health issues have pretty much taken over the hours in my days. I have been thinking of you, and wanted you to know that it's an honor and pleasure to know you. You're one of those kind and welcoming bloggers, who've made me and hundreds of others feel right at home in this cardmaking world. Even though I'm just echoing what others have said, I am glad to know you, and wish you all good things today and always! Birthday blessings surrounded by giant hugs!

Happy Dances everyone.

P.S. Miss Kylie has thrown a little link up party on her blog, Kylie is Addicted to Stamps, to which I will add my card. And also, the DT at Time Out has a new challenge celebrating Sandie, where I will also add my card. Thanks ladies!

Parked my purple next to your purple over at Time Out ;) Sandie will love your card. I love that spritz of glittery yellow adorning the flower center. Hugs to you. Take care of yourselves.

Wonderful card for Sandie, Bev! I love how the flower tucks right into the corner of the bold letters. Take care of yourself. I think maybe the nurse needs a nurse.

Jen Mitchell said...

What a terrific card! Although I don't consider myself a particular lover of purple I do like to use a purple ink pen for certain things at work. Maybe I'm a closet purple lover? Anyway, I love how this looks in all its purple glory! I especially love how the die cut sentiment looks. The missing parts of those certain letters aren't missed at all!

Bobby said...

That blossom adds the perfect final touch to your very CAS and purple card, Bev.

Leigh Penner said...
