Party Essentials Digital Stamp from Power Poppy

Party Essentials by Power PoppyI’m notorious for sending cards late, assuming that I even manage to get them in the mail at all. You’d think that a card maker would be leading the campaign to bring snail mail back into everyday life. But I seem to have a real disconnect between making cards and actually sending them. It’s not like I hoard them – once I make them, I rarely look at them again. Furthermore, I’m not one of those people — and YOU know who you are! — who expects the recipient to lovingly cherish and proudly display my cards forever in a place of honor on the fireplace mantle.

I send it. It’s yours. Do with it what you want. End of story.

So it’s hardly a surprise that I still haven’t sent a birthday card to my oldest friend whose birthday was June 12th. My saving grace is that she never sends mine on time either. It’s our thing and it’s a natural part of the rhythm of a nearly half century friendship.

Luckily, Marcella included some fun birthday images in this week’s release as part of Power Poppy’s Digital Blitz. This image is from the Party Essentials digital stamp set which also includes two other images and four birthday related sentiments, none of which I used here. Why? Well, because I forgot to add one of the sentiments from the set when I printed the image so I had to rummage through my stash and rethink my original design. So I added one of the sentiments from Cozy Cupfuls  (which is actually a winter holiday stamp set) to the front and picked a sentiment from Layer Cake for the inside.

Bottom line – I get to show off one of Power Poppy’s new releases AND I have a birthday card that might actually make it into the mail.
