#imbringingbirthdaysback

Hi stampers!  So, if you haven't heard already, the fabulous Shannon West, (who works at the home office for SU) has started this totally awesome movement to bring birthdays back.  While FaceBook and other social media outlets are great for birthday wishes, it's also awesome to get a handmade (or otherwise for that matter) card for your birthday.

I'll be the first to admit that although I'm a card maker, I'm not always a card sender.  Funny how that happens, huh?  So, I've joined the movement and an currently making a whole bunch of birthday cards which I have to say, are cards I don't seem to make to often so I'm happy to be rectifying that!  The occasions catalog has some super cute stuff for birthday's too!

Check out this adorable card!
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Party wishes
Paper:  Whisper white, basic black, mint macaron
Ink:  Basic black, mint macaron
Accessories:  It's my party washi tape, it's my party enamel dots

I have to say I never would have put together the colors in this DSP stack but they totally work!  While I didn't actually use the DSP in this card I did use the washi tape and enamel dots which are in the same colors since they are in the suite.  I also love that this suite is forcing me to use more black. I typically shy away from it but I'm learning it looks really good in projects!  What's great about this card is that it's super simple and super fast.  Both things are great for the whole bringing birthdays back movement when you need cards and cards that are mailable!

If you want to see more about the whole movement, check out #imbringingbirthdaysback and make sure to use that hashtag if you post anything!  And if you haven't, you should think about joining the movement!

I guess it's also appropriate to share this today since it's, um, my birthday :-)  I'm turning 25....again (we won't talk about how many times that's happened, ok).  On Saturday I got a card from the one and only Shannon and it's awesome!  I have a card from a celebrity!!!!  :-)  And hopefully I'll have cake tonight.  I asked my hubby to make me a jello cake as it's one of my favorites.  We'll see what happens ;-)  My other favorite is a jello no bake cheesecake and I'll see if I can get my momma to make me that when she visits this week!  Yay cake!

Thanks for visiting today.  And eat some cake for me if you have any (or girl scout cookies).

Happy stamping!
