13 February 2012 – Birthday Cards

Hi everyone,

As you may know, I’m a member of the Extra Special Aussie Demonstrators (ESAD) on Facebook.  It’s for Australian and New Zealand Demonstrators to share and chat about Stampin’ Up!  One of the things we do is Birthday Fairies.  Once you sign up, you go on the list to send cards when it is someone’s birthday.  I had mine last month and I had so much happy mail!!  What a talented bunch!!

Here’s a card that I’ve made for one of the February birthdays.  I recently got the Medallion stamp after umming and ahhing for quite a while but I think I’m in love with it now!!  I cased it from here.  I added a bit of glitter paper as you always need a bit of bling!!

Here’s a close up.
