Michele's 50th Birthday Bash Blog Hop!



Hello there!    Today is a super special day - some very talented stampers are hopping along to celebrate the 50th birthday of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps owner, Michele Gross!    Woo-hoo!   Happy, Happy Birthday, Michele!   You are one fabulous lady, and I'm so honored to be a Girl Friday and celebrate along with you!  

I created a special card for Michele using several CFS stamp sets - WTF 2 (on SALE now!!) and Bomb Diggity.   I stamped the 50's directly onto my purple card base using purple ink.    I colored them in lightly with a white colored pencil.   

I created the focal panel by inking up the sentiment with several colors of Distress Oxide inks, overlapping each just a bit.   I stamped the sentiment again with Versamark ink and heat set with clear embossing powder.  Using my MISTI stamping tool helped immensely for the repeat stamping!  

So.....to celebrate her milestone birthday, Michele is giving away FIVE $50 gift codes to the CAS-ual Fridays store!   Just comment on each stop of the blog hop for your chance to win!   Be sure to leave your comments by April 23 at 11:59 p.m. EST - winners will be announced on the CAS-ual Fridays blog shortly thereafter!   Your next stop on the blog hop is the super talented Heather North.  If you want to start at the beginning of the hop, head over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog!  

One more thing - if you'd like to do some shopping over at CAS-ual Fridays, be sure to use my special code, KIMBERLYSENTME, at checkout to save 15% on your order!!!!   It's good till the end of the year - and BONUS!   You can even use it on sale items!

  3. I really like the purple on purple. I think that adding the age to the background is very clever and a birthday card they won't be able to forget. I'm sure that you know someone or it may be yourself that looks at old birthday cards people gave you but you have no idea which birthday it was for....well, you solved that problem as well. Thank you
