Happy (belated) Birthday, Sandie!

Between the end of school year activities and starting a new job I have even less time to create. After an especially crazy week I really needed to recharge my batteries on Sunday by getting crafty...

I am terribly late (possibly the last) in wishing Sandie from London Days a very Happy 50th Birthday! But better late than never, I always think, and hope that Sandie will enjoy celebrating a bit longer!

Stamps: Happy Little Stamper (Happy Birthday), Avery Elle (belated)

My collection of washi tape has been whining that I keep forgetting about them and they were right, so I pulled them out. I honored Sandie's love of lot's of white space, CAS, and purple. The sentiment (in black) is from a set that I recently won from Happy Little Stampers. Love all the different fonts in that set! I added an assortment of purple washi tape and some flower gems.

There are two parties going on for Sandie and I am sending this card to both of them:

Time Out "Extra"

CAS with the optional twist of purple

Kylie, owner of Happy Little Stampers

Sandie, I hope this coming year will bring you lots of wonderful things and always enough time to create and do what makes you happy!
