Sandie's Birthday!!

I am very happy to join the birthday parties for Sandie - a.k.a. London Days!!  Sandie is an awesome card maker - likes very CAS style, and leaves us all love so often.  Sandie and I have a 'someday' plan in place for when I visit London again ... I cannot wait!

Sandie, I know I'm a day late ... no good excuses for it, except to say life is getting in the way of play time lately!  I do hope you are continuing to celebrate - this is winging its way to you as soon as I can get it posted!  Much love, and big birthday hugs to you!

My first play-time with this gorgeous #Concord&9th You've Got This set!!!
You'll pardon me if I don't share the inside sentiment this time, right?
 
Not only am I sending this to Sandie, I'll share at Kylie's party, and Time Out's special challenge with the purple twist, too!  You do know you're all invited, right?!
 
I'll be a bit behind the scenes for the next few weeks, my friends - big life-changes about to happen 'round here!  More on that soon! 
 
Meanwhile, know that I'll stop by as often as I can -  thanks for stopping by ... it means the world, and keeps me smiling ...
 
=]  Michele

Michele what a lovely card for Sandie, I just know she will love it--the girl does love purple!! You are doing some fabulous watercolouring these days! Really loving the flower too. Off I go shopping at Concord & 9th...

Wow, what a gorgeous card you've made, Michele! That flower is stunning and the big bold sentiment works perfectly with it.

Love that big bloom and paired sentiment! The flower is black embossed? Stunning!
Happy birthday Sandie!

Oh, I LIKE this Michele, and Sandy will too!! The teeny specks and solo black word in the sentiment really draw you in. Thinking of you. I'm hear if you need an ear...sending HUGS!!

What a gorgeous, soft and delicate bloom, Michele ... so fabulous paired with the bold sentiment ... loving those tiny speckles (can't call them splatters, they're far too dainty!). Delighted to have you playing along with us at Sandie's special Time Out birthday challenge! Take care as your world changes, mon amie! Hugs, Anita :)

Love the big gorgeous sentiment Michele. Absolutely fabulous for Sandie! xx

Bobby said...

The way you've watercolored that flower makes it look transparent and fragile, Michele. It's gorgeous! I love the peek of purple down the side too.

Love the boldness of both the bloom and sentiment, so striking in that pretty purple! Hope whatever changes in your future are positive ones. Take care!!

It's no surprise to me that you created such a GORGEOUS card, Michele! Your bloom is so beautiful...and I am loving the sentiment! Love all the fabulous purple, too! I see Sandie has already told you how much it means to her :)

Bold and purple. CAS perfection. What more could Sandie want. Love this big flower and super sized sentiment. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

Oh, WOW, Michele, how wonderful that watercoloured flower looks and how clever to add the 'so' in the sentiment in black!!!! The very fine ink splatters and the purple strip on the right add so much to make this a stunning card for Sandie!!! Beautifully done!!!!
I see you've got some 'life-changes' happening!!! Hope its all good ones, my friend!!!!
