40th wishes across the miles!

Hi there and I hope you enjoyed yesterdays post all about our wonderful retreat day? I am so looking forward to planning the next one!

When I was little I always wanted a proper Pen pal who I could write letters to and eventually meet one day. With the ever rising popularity of social media it's now a lot easier to have virtual Pen pals across the world. Stampin' Up! has brought me MANY and I mean loads of new friends from all over the world, I will be forever grateful for this and today I am sharing a card I made and sent as a surprise to my lovely Aussie friend and fellow "Mrs K", Sarah Klass! I have LOVED Sarah's work and style of blog writing for ages and often had thought what a cool lady she sounded! And don't get me started on her amazing My Digital Studio skills!! A few months ago Sarah messaged ME! I was a little star struck! She was asking for advice on classes etc.. and we had a Skype call, fast forward to today and a few Skype calls later and many many Facebook chats we are the firmest of friends and I cannot wait to meet her, Mr K and her adorable Hannah and Sophie when we all go on the cruise together in a few weeks time!
 A couple of weeks ago it was Sarah's 40th birthday (how cool we are the same age too!), 2 x 40 year old Mrs K's!!!! I sneaked her address from her Mum (who I found on FB) and sent her this card in the airmail post! Safe to say it has arrived safely and I can share it with you.
Bit of a combination of a few different makes of mine.
Happy 40th Birthday again Sarah, can't wait to meet you!
