I found a big birthday box on my front porch today. I was so excited to scoop it up, bring it inside and tear it open. I knew it was from my bf Cindy who lives on Oahu. She always remembers my birthday and makes me feel so special.
So, when I opened the box, I found another box inside with the word "joy" on it. Well, my middle name is Joy and I knew Cindy chose that box just for that reason, because she plans the perfect gift right down to the smallest detail. As you can see, Cindy added a few Christmas treats as well. You can check out how she made these items on her blog: Stamped with Aloha.
Look what was inside that cute box.. Be still my heart, its a PINK PINEAPPLE ornament and a beautiful handstamped pink pineapple in a shiny mirrored frame.
Sparkle, glitter and bling, everything I love in a birthday gift, or any gift for that matter.
Here's a close up of the special details of the pinepple picture. Cindy used the Pineapple stamp from Stampin' Up! and bedazzled it with rhinestone jewels that she colored with a light pink sharpie. Did you notice the background paper- its a sneak peek of our new designer paper in the New Sale a Bration brochure to be released on January 4th. It can be colored in with markers or watercolored, or just left as is, as shown here.
Cindy also added a sweet note with this adorable reindeer "sweater" card that she lovingly stamped just for me.
I'm so excited to place my new pink pineapple on the Christmas tree, the gorgeous handstamped pineapple on my desk in my office and wear my sparkly earrings during the holidays.
Cindy made my birthday even more special with the thoughtful gifts she chose for me and the beautiful picture that she handstamped especially for a pink pineapple lover like me.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
