The ever-so-sweet Kelly Kent is so excited to be celebrating her 5 year anniversary working as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, she wanted to share the joy around by having her very own anniversary blog hop. I think she might have been just the tiniest bit surprised at how many people shouted out, "Pick me! Pick me!" It just goes to show how much we love this girl. Kelly very generously picked us all (I think) and here we are in celebration mode.
Berry Burst was my choice for this card with a little Rich Razzleberry and a bit more Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper. I wanted to try Embossing Paste too, as it is new to Stampin' Ups! range of products. This time I left it in the original white but I have tinted it with a few drops of re-inker to get coloured versions too. I tried it out with a mask which I used previously for painting. Happy Anniversary is from the retiring Timeless Love. Of course, you know the hot Air Balloon is from Lift Me Up. Thank goodness that is carrying over to the new catalogue!!!
The card needed to be a little bit special for Kelly, so I picked a butterfly (Garden In Bloom) and some more balloons, all things that fly high you'll note. I took a quick pic before adding this folding panel inside in case it was impossible to photograph once it was inside.
It wasn't totally impossible, just a touch difficult, so you don't really get to see the sweet verse from Special Celebrations. That is also where 'Congratulations' comes from, and 'HUGS' is from Lovely Inside & Out. My friend was very keen to take this home with her, and suggested I changed the 5 to 21, the number of years she has been married!
Wishing you a very successful career over the next 5 years, Kelly. Now you'll be heading over to Cheryl Algie, can hardly wait to see her project!
