Well, well, well. Can you even believe it? A YEAR!!?
If you have come here from Amy Rysavy‘s blog, then you have made it to the last stop on our Heffy Doodle Birthday Blog hop! WOOHOO! For everyone else, you might want to head on over to the Heffy Doodle blog to start this hop, as it is jam packed full of amazing projects!
So, in case you don’t know, my name is Lesley Oman and I am the founder and creator of Heffy Doodle. For many years my hubby told me to create my own range of stamps, and last year I finally decided it was time to appease him. 😀 I drew some designs and started planning a Kickstarter campaign. It was exactly 1 year ago today that I shared my big secret plans with the world! I cannot believe how time has flown by, and I still marvel at the wonderful support I receive from customers, friends, family and this magnificent industry! I would like to say a massive thank you to each and every one of you for the part you have played in the development of my dreams. …. Enough sappiness, because its time to celebrate!

Now, let’s take a look at my project!
Birthdays are cause for celebrations and BIG PARTIES, so i wanted my card to be exactly the same. I actually created the inside first, but before we go there, here is the outside. The background was created using the Heffy Doodle Stitched Bubble Background die and I cut the frame into it using the Lucky Clover Frames set. The bear is from the Unbearable Without You stamp set, balloons from the Party Palooza set, and I stamped a greeting from the new Everyday Sentiment Duos. I even used the NEW Heffy Memo tape to mask the stamp so i could get two colours. So tell me, do you think this lil bear looks pleasantly surprised?
All his sweet friends have thrown him a beach birthday party! WOO! Of course i had to do it at the beach, because then i could include some of the new ocean critters from Oceans of Love and the turtle from the Shellabrate exclusive freebie ( you get it for free when you spend £35 in the Heffy Doodle store).
For the sky, i embossed the Swirly Cloud dies, and used distress inks and oxides for the sea and beachy mounds. Then it was stamp, colour and die cut for all my cute critters. I have used Happy Snappy Crocs, Honey Bunny Boo, Yappy Happy Mail, Oceans of Love, Unbearable Without you, Party Palooza and wingman (and the Shellabrate exclusive). For the number 1 on the cake, i just drew this freehand.
I kinda wish i was at this party! Don’t you!
