When my husband and I moved into our current home just over two years ago, we did not expect in a village of under 1,000 people to find that there was someone how was almost EXACTLY the same age as either of us. The odds that there would be someone who had the same birth date were not unreasonable, but to find that one of our, now, friends was born the day before my husband was a little unexpected. But there you go, life is always ready to surprise you.
Given the proximity of the birthdays, I thought it would be fun to make similar cards for them both, so I have made a male and female version of the card using the ‘All Attendee’ Stamp set we were given at OnStage Live in Amsterdam. As my husband and I love to cycle, it seemed the perfect set to choose (not sure if our friend owns a bike!). I have used four of the new In Colours too and am loving them. I was not sure about Lemon Lime Twist, but it brings a real zing to our colour choices and I can see that I will be using it a lot.
I have used Designer Series Papers from Falling in Love and Serene Scenery Stack. The Serene Scenery is still available as I write this, but is showing as Low Inventory, so if you want it, you know what to do!!
Remember that from Monday you are able to buy some Bundles from the Eastern Palace Suite. They are both fantastic value, as they include FREE items. they also include three of the new In Colours, so you can get your hands on them a month early. Click on the picture to see the choices available:
If you are thinking of buying the Premier Bundle (and who wouldn’t), PLEASE stop and think before you buy. WHY!! Because you would be better to buy the Starter Kit. Seriously, for just 5p more, you can get the Starter Kit for £99 (which includes free P&P, rather than having to pay £4.95 on top of the bundle), but add a further £31.00 of product. The maths makes the choice an easy one. Pay £98.95 (£94.00 + £4.95 P&P) for just the Premier Bundle, which is great value, OR make the wise choice and pay £99 to get £130 of product of your choice and then get the chance to order from the new catalogue in May at a DISCOUNT.
