The Stamps I Use

Surprise!

It's a special someone's birthday today!!! Yep we're celebrating Leanne Fumiko Poe's - aka the Original "Fumi" birthday today with a little blog-land surprise! A bunch of us got together to make Leanne's day a little extra special.

I thought it only fitting to celebate with a cheery little Fumi Panda birthday card.



And you guessed it - Fumi Panda was stamped and coloured on polyshrink plastic (aka Shrinky Dinks) to make a little charm. If Leanne is so inclined, she will be able to remove the charm from the card and attach it to her key chain, purse, back pack, tote, etc and everyone will know that it is hers - just as soon as the card reaches her in the post!

Happy Birthday Leanne! Hope you have a fantastic day!

Be sure to stop by the Yumi & Fumi Handmade blog to see the creations from everyone who is joining in the celebration today!
