Happy Birthday Sandie

Morning Craft buddies ... no your watches aren't wrong!
I'm sneaking in with an early post before 
Less is More goes live to let you in on a little secret ....

We have a blog buddy birthday to celebrate today
for Sandie of London Days 

Sandie and I have become quite close 'cyber' friends since ending up on 2 
design teams together, but as well as these teams she's the administrator 
on loads of others. While we are all busy cutting and sticking 
she's organising challenges, blog posts, badges, photos and 
generally keeping us all in the loop and organised.

So behind her back ... 
the queen of challenges and watermarks Kylie Purtell 
'little' me and funky and fabulous Sarah of Funky Fossil Designs
got our heads together to organise a linky birthday party 
in honour of this super talented, fun, and special lady. 

Here's my card for Sandie and it's cringe-worthy!
I made it for a GDT post but couldn't bring myself to use it a few weeks ago.
I seem to have lost the knack (if I ever had it) of using patterned papers
and layers BUT just for a laugh with Sandie, who equally dreads patterns and layers 
here it is ....

The sentiment says it all!

I then decided to add a few more elegant and CAS touches ;-)
just for the fun of it and here's the revised version winging it's way to Sandie!

We'd like to invite you to join the party fun and help to make Sandie 
feel extra-special on her day by making a card and linking up at the party.

Here's the link and it's hosted at Kylie's blog 
Kylie is Addicted to Stamps 
because she's brilliant at this kind of thing ... and ...
Sarah and I 'crushed' her until she said YES!

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post and hope you'll
join our birthday party for Sandie soon.

I will be back later with details of the Less is More Challenge 
so you can turn over and nap for another hour!



  1. Your card really woke me up this morning, Sarah! It has totally made me smile :) I am sure the birthday girl will love all of the layers and patterns that you combined for her birthday! Thank you for making Sandie's birthday special x

  2. Sarah-what a great card! Not cringe-worthy at all :) The addition of the die cut greeting and banner really pulled it all together-it's fun and happy and I like it!
    Have a lovely weekend,
    Nessa xxx

  3. I love it Sarah, you are better at DSP than me and you know this made me laugh! You are so adorable for organising this for me, you little sneaky thing xx

  4. omg! That is the funniest face. Made me giggle. All that colour and DSP are awesome! Not cringe worthy at all, silly billy. Thanks for being my partner in crime. I gave Sandie another surprise this morning. I looked up her phone number and gave her a call. Sang happy birthday and everything (poor Sandie). It was so good to hear her voice again. xx

  5. Love! The sentiment is perfect!! xoxo

  6. This is such a fun and special card for Sandie!! What a fantastic good morning for her birthday!! LOL!!

  7. Now, this is one happy card - I am smiling typing this up!

  8. Wow, such bright happy colours, and that face! It brought a smile to my lips.

  9. Love the sentiment and the mad face on the sun! x

  10. Now this is a happy sight! That sentiment is the best.

  11. This is a bright and fun card, Sarah! I'm sure that Sandie will get a kick out of it. I can't seem to handle layers a patterns anymore myself. My crafty heart belongs to CAS now. LOL! :-)

  12. You two have way too much fun! I love it...

  13. Great gesture for a special lady! Your card is super nice and funny. :-)

  14. Hahaha ... this is fabulous, Sarah! I too am DP challenged ... you, on the other hand have combined it to make such a fun card for Sandie ... and used one of my most favourite phrases! It certainly had me smiling all over my face! Anita :)

  15. Such a fun card, Sarah! I love all the bright colors and patterns, and I'm sure Sandie is going to love it, too! Thanks so much for your part in organizing the Linky Party ;)
