Have you seen this hash-tag floating around on Social media recently? The lovely Shannon West (from the Stampin’ Up!® home office in Utah) has really started something. She noticed that we just don’t send birthday cards any more! Shocking really, but we have become so reliant on social media (I really don’t know if I would remember half of the birthdays I do without the power of Facebook!) and so sending a birthday card through the post has become a bit lost. You can read more about #Imbringingbirthdaysback on the Stampin’ Up! Website
Saying that I will be delivering this birthday card by hand later on today (I am hoping that the birthday girl doesn’t see this on social media before then!). It is my wonderful mother-in-law’s birthday today – I won’t say how old she is, I think the card has done that for me! I usually do theme’d cards for my in-law’s as they have a passion for all things VW / 70’s is nice and easy to find something that fits them. However, today is a big day, and I fancied making something slightly more refined and lady-like for such a special occasion.
I actually made this card a few weeks ago, based on a Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge sketch, but it was far too early to share it back then! I do love being part of the sketch challenge, and will be hopping with the girls again next weekend (excited already!)
The card features the Number of Years bundle and the (almost ready to retire) 2014-2016 In Colours; Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow. I have been loving playing with the number stamps and dies and I have my fingers crossed for a move into the annual catalogue this year! They just make lovely simple classy cards, or something much more complicated if that’s what your in to! Awesome, versatile products (one of the many great things about Stampin’ Up!)
