My Big Birthday Weekend of Awesomeness!

Welcome to my big birthday weekend of awesomeness! My birthday is on Sunday and, since my big day just happens to fall on a weekend, we've decided to make it a weekend-long celebration. It all begins tonight with tickets to see U2!!!!  I am soooo excited to see Bono and the was so good of them to plan a stop on their tour schedule in time for my birthday :)

The fun continues as I have some retail therapy planned for tomorrow, along with my summer pedi...nothing like a little pampering to make a girl feel special, right? Sunday, my actual birthday will be dinner with my sweetie and sending my sweet boy off to Grammy & Grampy's for his annual summer kick-off. Today is his last day of grade FOUR!!

Now, lest you think I have forgotten you, I also have some birthday fun planned for my fabulous customers. This weekend, when you place your order of  $25 or more you will receive a special gift from me: a 4" X 6" sampler of the new Fresh Florals DSP in each of the 5 new In-Colours. This DSP is absolutely gorgeous...I know you will love it as much as I do! That's not all! If your order exceeds $46 (before shipping and HST) your name will be entered into a draw for a $46 gift certificate (can you guess how old I'm turning?) How sweet would an extra $46 be to spend on your new catty wishlist? Orders must be placed by 11:00 pm on Sunday, June 25th to qualify for both offers.

Now for a sweet birthday card to inspire you. This is one that I designed for my upcoming Daisy Delight bundle class in July.

 I have a HUGE clump of rudbeckia growing in my garden. I love their late-summer colour...they just make me happy. I tried to recreate some on this card and love the way they turned out. Isn't that background awesome? I used the new Burlap background stamp on Crumb Cake card stock using ink of the same shade. the texture it adds is fantastic! To create my rudbeckia, I sponged Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach ink on Daffodil Delight card stock and then stamped the daisy image over top in Crushed Curry ink. I punched the stamped images using the Daisy punch and layered them. The centres are Early Espresso card stock, stamped in Early Espresso ink and punched with the 1/2" circle punch. The stem and leaves are Pear Pizzazz card stock.

 The sentiment is from the Special Celebrations stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla card stock. I punched it using the Pretty Label punch and added some copper metallic thread and a 1/4" copper trim bow.

 On the inside I added a panel of Very Vanilla card stock on which I stamped another sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp set as well as more daisy images from the Daisy Delight stamp set.

If you haven't yet registered for my Daisy Delight class its not too late!  Live too far away to attend in person? Take advantage of my Class-To-Go option. Click HERE for details on both options.
