Seashore Stampers July BIRTHDAY Blog

Hello lovely card making people and random followers,

Welcome to the monthly Seashore Stampers Blog Hop! This month we are focusing on birthdays.

I have good news and bad news. First, the bad news. I got home late and won't have my actual blog done up until some time Saturday. My bad. The good news, I spent the evening at Butchart Gardens listening to our fabulous Victoria Symphony. It was an awesome evening with family and friends. And of course, we had to go for hot chocolate and dessert afterwards. Thanks, to my incredible sister-in-law, Laura, for the tickets and the yummy treats. Sometimes, last minute plans are the best.


I'm ba-aaaccckkk! Better than never. What is better than making a card? Making it with a bunch of fabulous friends. I had such a fun day, creating my blog birthday card, while hanging out and playing with 3 1/2 girlfriends (all Stampin' Up demonstrators and one retired demonstrator.)

Sharing ideas and creating.

 Face Timing with Erica, who couldn't make it because of a back injury.
The ladies making lunch, under the close supervision of the fur babies.

 Maksim, always in charge.

My card, which is fairly straight forward, was created using the lovely Fabulous Flamingo set. I've had great fun with this set, creating my own silly greetings and printing them on the computer. The flamingo is usually done with 3 step stamping. To create my flamingo, I only used 2 of the 3 stamps, making it more abstract. And I am sorry to say, there is not a die for the flamingo. Have I mentioned lately how much I love my Stampin' Up Paper Snips (#103579)? The supply list excluding tools and adhesives is listed below.

Feel free to contact me with any questions. Until next time.

Cheers and Keep on Stampin',
