Many of you have probably seen this #imbringingbirthdaysback hashtag on Facebook over the past several months, and today we are celebrating Shannon's birthday, the creator of this movement to Bring Birthdays Back!!  Shannon felt that wishing people happy birthday on facebook was not allowing us the opportunity to do what we do best… create and send cards!

So, Shannon, thank you for encouraging all of us to Bring Birthdays back by sending a special birthday card in the mail, and here's to your special day and to a year filled with many blessings!


Best Thoughts hostess set from Stampin' UP! - birthday card for Shannon West created by Patty Bennett #imbringingbirthdaysback


I mailed this stamped card to Shannon last week and I hope she received it in time to help celebrate her special day!

I used the beautiful hostess stamp set called "Best Thoughts".  You'll find it on pg 180 of the current annual catalog.  Did you know you can purchase this set with $10 of your hostess dollars?  And that you earn hostess dollars to spend on anything you want when your Stampin' UP! order is $150 or more!?  Well, now you know 🙂

Shannon stamps her #imbringingbirthdaysback stamp on the envelope of all the birthday cards she mails out to hundreds of people!  So, I did the same 🙂

I think I may have overdone it on her card.. at the last minute I stamped the swirly border around the piece of whisper white cardstock… but I hope she still likes it!  The swirly border is from the fabulous Tin of Cards stamp set (see it here).

This is the beautiful Shannon West in a recent photo, doing what else but addressing more birthday cards!
