A Very Special Birthday

If you are looking for some Stampendous Wee Scapes inspiration, please scroll down or click here. Today is a very special day that called for a very special post.

Our Stampendous Design Team Coordinator is celebrating a birthday today so we decided to get together and throw her a little party hop.

Laura is a wonderful lady! She's super hard working, incredibly witty, insightful, creative and encouraging. Whenever I'm feeling discouraged and want to chuck it all, she knows what to say and pulls me up to continue on. It was Laura that believed in me when I first started to make cards. I've learned so much from her and will always be grateful.

Happy Birthday Laura! May your day be filled with joy and laughter.

My card was created using Stampendous Calligraphy Sampler, Leaf Sprig and Birthday Assortment as well as an assortment of my favorite Tsukineko Memento Ink.

Please join me by hopping along with fellow Stampendous Design Team members in wishing Laura a fantastic birthday. While you're hopping, please stop by the Stampendous facebook page and send Laura your personal wishes.

They have also been suggested that the Mayor would likely abolish the post of Leader (the the majority of senior full-time paid for employee that's paid around £190, 000) and also personally control you day-to-day management on the Council's staff members.
