Sandra Caldwell Birthday Blog Hop


Winner of the Sandra Caldwell image of choice is AJ!  
Please email me at dlmundinger(at)yahoo(dot)com to collect your prize.

We are celebrating the very talented Sandra Caldwell's Birthday (which happens to be TODAY!)
with a birthday blog hop. Won't you please help us celebrate?!

We have each made a creation with images from her Etsy store.
If you arrived here from Cathy Preissing, YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!

I've used #289 Old Lady Bat Wings.  I know Sandra has a sense of humor, or she wouldn't have drawn this hilarious image.  Gotta say, we ladies of a certain age can certainly relate.  LOL

The front of the card is a double slider and you pull the ribbon to reveal the rest of the front sentiment.  

And inside we have #799 Celebration Glamour Nana with her #896 Hot Birthday Cake.  Not as hot as you, Sandra!  Lots of love on your special day.
CHEERS!  xxxx 

I also created another card using the special digi I received for participating in Sandra's Birthday ATC Swap. those who participated and received this digi are all making a card and posting it on the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans FB page. It's not available in the shop, but there are all sorts of fun contests, events, new releases and inspiration on the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fan FB page, so you might want to come join the Group and the fun.  For this one I used the sketch from the Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge so I'll be entering it there.

I'm sorry your cards will be a little late, Sandra.  I'd like to say I was afraid to mail them too early and spoil the surprise, but...umm...
Anyway, I'm all for prolonging the birthday experience and I know you are too.

Now, are you up for some Blog candy?  I know Halloween is one of Sandra's favorite holidays and she has some absolutely ADORABLE Halloween stamps in her Etsy shop. Tell me the name and # of your favorite and you'll be put in the hat to win the stamp of your choice.   Winner will be announced Saturday, July 30th, both here and on the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans FB page.

This new one is MY current fave.  What's yours?  Hint: search Halloween to see ALL of the fabulous Halloween stamps.

  1. Wow, Donna - what a lot of work! I love your double slider card and that image is ADORABLE. I bet Sandra loved this card. I feel like Sandra was looking at my bat wings when she drew the image!! Thanks for the giggle this morning. Are those real conversation hearts on the ATC card?!?! Love your idea of blog candy! Sandra has so many fun Halloween images. I bet the blog hoppers will have a hard time choosing!!

  2. Wowzers Donna this is totally awesomeness, loving it all, Sandra will be thrilled.

  3. WOW Donna, Amazing work! I do LOVE the Bearly Jack DIGI!!

  4. OMG... Donna, Yep Halloween and me Rock all year long ! You all got me ! Sneaky People Thanks so much for the Awesome colorings and the great Birthday Blog Party !! I could stay here all day. Hugs and Thanks Sandra

  5. Boy you have been busy! Love all of them!

  6. You really rocked them all , they are amazing and I freaking loveeee your Halloween guy , he's outstanding !!!

  7. Both of these cards are amazing. Love them both. I would have to say #790 Mummy Hippo is my favorite Halloween Digi Stamp. Thanks for the chance.

  8. Donna - I had to laugh. Perfect card in all ways. I love the pushing 65.

  9. Donna this is perfect and a great card for Sandra, well thought out, and your coloring is always fabulous, and the Bearly Jack image is perfect too. Hugs.

  10. Great pair of cards Donna, I'm sure Sandra will love them, I do!! Such creativity and fun with those fabulous images and colourful papers! Love them! :)
    I'm the opposite of Sandra, I'm not into Halloween, my British upbringing probably, we didn't trick or treat when I was a kid. So I would have to go with #603 - Bearly Trick or Treat - that about sums me up. LOL

  11. Holy cow! You have outdone yourself, Donna. I love your imagination and where it takes you. The first card is outrageous and clever. The second card is beautiful. You have such a talent for combining patterns. I also love your take on Bearly Jack!

  12. What a great card, Donna! Love that you continue your message to the inside! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  13. Hi Donna - I agree with Bonnie - you out did yourself. Your cards are all beautiful and unique in their own way. As Sandra would say "Brave".

    With smiles
