Happy Birthday, Shery!
Today it's STAMPlorations owner Shery's birthday so teamie Nonni has organised a little surprise birthday party on the STAMPlorations blog while Shery wasn't looking. I'm bringing the cake. I suspect some of my teamies will also be bringing cake. And gifts. From the new stamp release.
I don't know where Wonderwoman Shery gets all her energy from. Not only does she run her stamp company STAMPlorations, and the corresponding blog, she has an online scrapbooking store, she's on several design teams, she's just started up another challenge blog (The Mixed Media Card Challenge - and I'm on the design team, yay!) and she also finds time to shoot video tutorials. Oh, and in her other life she's an author, ghost writer, software designer.... I think I need a lie down.
Soooo - as a little extra Nonni has asked us to answer these questions:
1) Your favourite STAMPlorations stamp and why:
Well, this week it's the cake stamp that I've used on this card. I love its wonkiness and its versatility. On various cards recently I've changed it into cupcakes, I've added extra tiers to it, I've added glossy accents to the dripping icing, wink of stella to the piping and Stickles to the candle flames. And even though it's a detail image, it still looks fab with Distress Inks sloshed all over it.
2) Your favourite piece of writing or book:
The book that had me most riveted is Papillon by Henri Charrière, I just couldn't put it down. Coming a close second is To Kill A Mockingbird. It wasn't on the required reading list when I was at school (we got Day of The Triffids) but my kids read it and I borrowed it from them. My least favourite reading is Dickens, just can't take to his style (a piece of useless information for you there).
3) Your message to Shery:
Apart from Happy Birthday, you mean?? A big, huge, thank you for accepting me onto the STAMPlorations design team (and now the Mixed Media Card Challenge team). And keep on doing what you're doing, it's working :) Have a wonderful birthday!
