Happy Birthday Shery! .......

Happy Tuesday to you .......

And a very Happy Birthday to Shery (aka the Boss!) the lovely lady who is STAMPlorations. We've just been celebrating the company's 3rd birthday, now it's the turn of the lady who runs the operation.
To help Shery celebrate her special day some of the DT have organised a Surprise Birthday party  and guess what ..... you guys are invited to join in the fun too.
Check out today's Inspiration post on the STAMPlorations Blog, and at the end you'll find a whole load of birthday cards for the birthday girl, and one of those linky thingys so you can join in.
The linky will remain open for about two weeks I think, so you've lots of time ..... no need to panic!

So Shery ..... this one's especially for you ......

I've used one of the pretty blooms from Dee's Blooming Buds and coloured it using Distress Inks and a little water to blend

Then using my MISTI (which ...... by the way ....... I am loving more, every time I use it!!) I stamped the words using the STAMPlorations Happy Sentiment Builders

The ink pad I used is a little on the .... well loved side shall we say (Memento's Rose Bud).  It's only one of the small dewdrop pads but I love it!  I keep saying I'm going to invest in the large version but never get around to it.  The ink is getting a little pale but with the MISTI it's not a problem.  I just ink the stamp up again, and stamp right over the top ...... ink it again, stamp right over the top.  I can do this as many times as I like, it's perfect every time.

A few ink splatters here and there ......

a touch of sparkle on the flower ......

and of course a little something on the inside .....

Have a fabulous birthday Shery ....... enjoy your day, eat lots of cake ...... you deserve it!!
You're card is going to arrive with you a little late ..... sorry!  But at least you've seen it.  It just means you can keep the celebrations going a little longer.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY lovely lady!! 

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
We're hoping to light up the barbecue later ..... the food is ready, the beer is chilling fingers crossed the weather holds out.

Cheerio until next time
