Happy Birthday - to Me!



No it's not really my birthday but it felt like it this week when I received an e-mail saying I was the Featured Stamper for Splitcoaststampers'  Featured Stamper Challenge!  Me? Really? I was stunned!  It was a wonderful surprise - and certainly made me want to celebrate!  Any excuse for cake and ice cream :)  Stampers participating in the challenge are asked to case (while changing 2 or more elements) one of the cards from my gallery on Splitcoast. It has been wonderful seeing all of the creations and I thought I'd enter the challenge as well.  My festive birthday card today was made casing the Halloween card below and using colors from the challenge at PPA this week.

Love it, LInda. The Edgelit, ribbon, scallops and even the way you threaded the Baker's Twine through the button add up to another great Linda Callahan card! I'm not sure I'm astute enough to follow the upload directions to CASE you on SC! LOL
