Birthdays and Other Celebrations......PPA258, PP251






It's fun to get together to celebrate a birthday.......but actually it is fun to get together to celebrate anything! The stars aligned  this past weekend and I actually got to spend an afternoon with two of my favorite stampers.....Jen Timko and Jen Mitchell. A lot of stamping talk to be sure - and a lot of laughs.  Jen M brought a selfie stick - that she had never used before.  It was a strange experience and we couldn't stop laughing as you can see in the picture below!







I paired our cheery color combo at Pals Paper Arts along with Nance Leedy's cool sketch at The Paper Players to create my card.  That fabulous script sentiment is from a recent Paper Pumpkin kit.

Great challenge combo, Linda! I love your balloons and the Gorgeous Grunge background with the smattering of sparkles in the sequins! The font is beautiful. So glad you had a good time with the J's! :)

And for the record I have not used the selfie stick since so I won't be an expert at it any time soon!

You just know that you like a card when the first thing you do upon seeing the blog is to reach the "pin it" button. Absolutely adorable, Linda! And I loved the "selfie"....

What a fabulous mix - both the woman(!) and the card!

You've done two things that I simply cannot do well - the splatters and the loopy twine - and they are perfect!
