Happy Birthday, Sandie!

My blog has been on auto pilot for the last week while we took a last-minute holiday to Ibiza, so I've got a lot of catching up to do, but before that I'm just popping in with a quick post to wish Sandie of London Days a very happy 50th birthday, and joining in the linky party over at Time Out.  It's no surprise that the theme is CAS (Sandie's favourite style) with a twist of purple (Sandie's favourite colour)!

Happy birthday Sandie, I hope you're stretching the celebrations out for as long as possible!

I'm also entering this into CASology Stencil, which is being sponsored this week by STAMPlorations.

I've used the Dots All Over ARTplorations stencil with Dusty Concord Distress Ink, and a sentiment from Deepti's Balloons and Banners, together with with a Penny Black die and large Parker numbers.

I'm over at STAMPlorations tonight with some tray-baked notelet cards.  Here's a sneak peek.
