Surprise! Happy Birthday Sandie!!!!!

Hello!! What a special day today is!

It all came about with a little conniving between myself, Sarah Gray and Sarah Platt to put together a surprise birthday bash for Sandie of London Days.



Sandie is my London bestie who put up with me (I mean put me up) when I went all the way to Europe from Australia just over a year ago. We had the most amazing time together. We are constantly in touch and not a day goes by without me missing her. 

Sandie is on the Design Team for Addicted to Stamps and More (my challenge blog) and she is a god send. Really! She does a lot behind the scenes and always asks if there is more she can do. Sandie also designs for Inkspirational, Uniko Studios and owns her own challenge blog Time Out.

I know a lot of us share the same opinion of Sandie. Selfless, tireless, dependable and so generous. She is always commenting on as many blogs are humanely possible.

So! Here's to you Sandie. A very special surprise birthday linky party in your honour. Enjoy!!


Here is my card -



Sandie is a huge fan of purple and her favourite style is CAS. She loves a butterfly here and there and also the odd enamel dot or sequin. I decided to encompass all of these elements on my card.

I have to say that this is the best outcome I have had using my Brushos, Starch and Cling Wrap technique. I'm not so timid with smooshing the cling wrap onto my colours. I just slap it on these days and leave it be for at least 30 minutes.

The Butterfly and Sentiment are from Inspired by Stamping


Please play along and don't forget to spread the word! The linky will run for the rest of the month so we can keep celebrating Sandie's birthday throughout May.
