Happy Birthday gift set

Be prepared for circles and circles and more circles! You may be dizzy by the end of this post!!

Last Thursday, my neighbor and friend turned 40 years old!  Aging doesn't bother me, but she was having a little trouble reaching the big 4-0.  Now, I still have until November to reach my 40th, but really......I think I'll be fine with it!

If you remember a few weeks back, we did a fundraiser to help Haylee (the dog) get into a sanctuary (we are bringing her up this Sunday!!)...one of the fundraising efforts, was a jewelry sale from Stella & Dot.  All profits from the sale went to Haylee.

It was a good opportunity to get a gift for my friend AND help Haylee!!  When the order came in - I really loved their packaging (the two small boxes on left and right).  I immediately knew I wanted to create a card for her that matched the packaging.  So, I pulled out two three PTI sets and started stamping out circles!  After all the stamping was done, I used a PTI impression plate (look hard...you can see it!!)


Once I finished with the card......I decided to stamp a box I had.....so I continued stamping circles......

After I finished and took my pictures of the set........I decided the card was missing the ever-needed bling.....so I added bling to my circles.......
I finished off the card by using a Nestie, a PTI sentiment and numbers from a Recollections set.  I was pretty happy how this whole set came out!
Enjoy your day!
Thanks for your visit!

I cannot believe how much your card and box, match almost exactly the boxes from Stella & Dot., I had to really look to see the difference. Love, love it!!!! The bling in the center of the circles is the prefect touch. Your friend will be thrilled with the whole set, it is amazing, great job. Safe travels on your trip on Sunday.

This turned out great!! I love how you stamped the circle background. What stamp set is that center polka dot circle from? Love it! Very cool card!

This is soooo pretty! I love the circles (and the bling too!). This is a wonderful gift set.


PS turning 4-0 is not too bad, at least is wasn't for me. Age is just a number, right. I see people younger than me that act like they are much older and older people that amaze me with their energy.

I can't get over how well that stamp coordinates with the packaging! It's perfect! The little touch of bling is fabulous, too. I'm sure she loved the gift...even if she wasn't too keen about turning the big 4-OH! ;)
