Happy Birthday Shery!

You all probably know Shery from one layer cards, the lovely, generous and creative mind behind STAMPlorations stamps. Its her birthday today!

Happy Birthday Shery!

I hope you'll have a blast today. I wish you many more! 

Of course I used STAMPlorations stamps for this, augmented by some punches/die cuts

So how about to get to know us a bit better? Nonni (the organizer of this birthday surprise) thought up some questions for us:

1) My favorite STAMPlorations stamp and why:

Well, that is a tough one - up to recently I would have chosen the Retro Mod set without a second thought, but the set I used here for this card is probably a close second. I just love the creative options those sets give me. Both sets are really unlimited in their use. Think of any card for any occasion and I can make a card using those sets.

2)  My favorite piece of writing or your favorite book (Shery is a writer) and why:

Oh god, what a question - one ???? book - I am supposed to choose ONE book out of millions, no category?
Lets do this differently:

Fiction: Barbara Kingsolver: Prodigal Summer - wonderful story telling intermixed with facts about nature (she has a degree in biology)
Non-fiction: Wild Fermentation by Sandor Ellix Katz - just got into that, great read and learned a lot
Travel: Bill Bryson: Neither Here nor There, A Walk in the Woods or any of his other book - hilariously funny
Cookbooks: Deborah Madison: Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone - down to earth great tasting recipes.
Teen and young adult reads:  (yes, I read that stuff too - I have a 13 year old son at home) Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer - fun, fast, incredibly creative and captivating
Drama: Antigone by Jean Anouilh - read it a long time ago and it left a lasting impression.

There is more, as you can guess, but I  won't bore you any more.....

3) My message to the birthday girl Shery:

Dear Shery, I am so happy to have "met " you and can be on your team. It has been amazing so far and as far as I can tell, it will continue to be fabulous! You are generous, fantastically creative, stimulating, wonderful - I could not imagine a better team to be on! Now go girl and celebrate -

This gave me such a smile to my face... Fun and quirky card - fabulous.

Shery said...

This card is sitting on my desk beside my monitors and it makes me smile every time I look at it. Call me silly, but I shake the card every so often because the fishy eye is just begging for it :o) It's a wonderful distraction! I so love it. PS: Must check out the authors on your reading list!
