Happy Birthday Sandie!

I have an extra special post today for my dear cousin, Sandie, of London Days!  The fabulous Kylie of Addicted to Stamps is hosting a birthday party for Sandie. Sandie has a zest for life and I am so thankful for her. We are blessed to not only be cousins but to be absolutely dear friends.  Love her to bits and hope that she is being spoiled rotten on her birthday!

When making her card, I new it had to be CAS with her favorite color purple. My first attempt is below and I just didn't like it...too many grungy stamps so I had a second go and I think Sandie will love the one above. Hopefully the post across the pond made it in time!

Be sure to pop on over to Sandie's blog and leave her some birthday love!

2 superb cards Lynn and both CAS and Sandie perfect! Lucky you being her cousin I've only got to know her in cyberspace in the last 12 months but she's a lot of fun! Thanks for joining the party. Sarah x
