This month our theme is Sale-a-Bration.

Sale-a-Bration is the BEST time in the year.  It runs alongside the first 3 months of the new Spring/Summer catalogue, and so from 3 January to end March whenever you purchase goodies to the value of £45 you can earn FREE goodies from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.  This year you can also purchase extra special goodies when you spend £90.  Awesome!
If you have been thinking of joining... do it now!..... if you join during Sale-a-bration, not only do you get £130 worth of goodies for £99, you can also include 2 (yes really) 2 FREE stamp sets.  Amazing!
Click on the 'Join Me' tab at the top of my blog and you will see all you need to join, and of course if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Today I have used the Party Pandas stamp set to make a birthday card. Its one of those that you can earn for FREE when you spend £45..... isn't he cute!
First I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting in Marina Mist on my card baseand then placed a strip of Petal Passion designer series paper to the left hand side.  I stamped the Panda with Memento Black on Whisper White, punched the top and bottom using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and threaded some Marina Mist card stock through the punch holes and layered over the designer series paper using dimensionals.  I added a punched balloon shape using Marina Mist cardstock so it all matches...easy peasy.   Oh, nearly forgot, I added a smattering of sparkly jewels too ))

Just look at the other images in this set.....  super for lots of projects.
