Two of my Stampin’ Up! friends had birthdays over the weekend and I only managed to go send them wishes (via the internet) yesterday as I was busy with family events over our long weekend for Easter & Anzac Day here in Australia….. yep we got a 5 day long weekend this year how lucky were we!
On Sunday is was Jodene’s birthday – as she lives over in WA I finally had the pleasure of meeting Jodene last year at SU Convention, we had become friends through yahoo group Stampin’ Up! in Oz.
And on Tuesday (yesterday) it was Linda’s birthday – Linda is a fellow Brisbane girl & we’ve been lucky to meet up at Regionals & Convention, we too also became friends through the same yahoo group. Linda spoilt me last year with a gorgeous birthday gift at Regionals.
You must check out their blogs as they do such beautiful work !!! Both are listed on my Blogroll. (Linda hasn’t been able to blog as much lately since returning to work full time as a prep teacher)
I made a couple of birthday cards using one of my favourite challenge blogs Stamping 411 & this time I also used the colour challenge from Color Throwdown. The colours in the challenge were Navy, White & pick a colour – I chose Cherry Cobbler.
