Stampin' Up! Long Fellows - ColourQ Colour Challenge #140


Today's card is brought to you by the creative colours on offer at the ColourQ Colour Challenge #140. Here is the glorious colour palette....

...and here's my card...

I actually made 2 versions of this card....one for a very dear friend of mine who moved away some time ago and is working herself to the bone and didn't really get a chance to enjoy her birthday....and to top it all off I forgot to send her a card.....I am a 'bad friend'!! I phoned her though and we had a lovely long chat. I miss her dearly and I hope she gets through this tough period of work.

The 2nd card is for another Stampin' Up! demonstrator Rochelle Blok. Rochelle is on the Facebook page 'ESAD' which is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator-only group where we share stories, exchange ideas & offer advice to each other....it is a beautiful sisterhood of Stampin' Up! demonstrators and one of the many ways that we support one another and offer encouragement. One of the things that we do is send each other birthday cards, but I was so caught up in the Convention the other week that I forgot poor Rochelle's card.     

Given that both cards are for belated birthdays, I used the gorgeous image from the Stampin' Up! Long Fellows stamp set. Unfortunately, the set is retired....as it was a hostess set from the 2010-2011 catalogue....it enforces the fact that if you see hostess set in a catalogue, you'd better snap them up as they are often the best stamps in the catalogue and never-to-be-repeated. I love this set...I will never part with it!! :)

Take care & Happy Stampin'!!
