Happy Birthday Wendy

Today, we are celebrating a very special lady!
 
Wendy Wyman, owner of Repeat Impressions Stamps, has a birthday today,
and we all want to wish her a wonderful day...
 
When Wendy was just 4 years old, she announced that she was going to be an artist when she grew up.  Many years, and many sketchbooks later, she had earned a BFA in Graphic Design.
 
The next 11 years found Wendy worked in advertising, freelancing, and running a printing company.
 
And then it happened...Wendy's mom became a stamping addict, and the rest was history!  It was Wendy's mom's encouragement that led her to turn her illustrations into fine art rubber stamps.
 
Wendy's husband Bill, was also looking for a career change, and jumped at the idea of learning a new skill.  And so....in 1996, Wendy and Bill established Repeat Impressions Stamps.  Each stamp is designed by Wendy, and manufactured by Bill in their home workshop!
 
We hope that you will join us today, as we hop together for Wendy!
 
A note to Wendy from all of us:
 
Wendy, you are the sweetest, and most generous person we know.
As a 'boss', rarely do we find ourselves working for someone that is more professional,
or more organized!  You are so understanding of our personal issues, and it's a joy to work with you and your products!

We want to wish you a very Happy Birthday!
We each look up to you, we admire you, and we respect you.
May your day today be filled with love and laughter!

And remember....the more candles you have, the bigger the wish you are allowed!
 
Here  is the birthday card I sent to Wendy using 1401-P Portland Head Lighthouse from Repeat Impressions.

The way you have stamped the image in blue is a wonderful idea and the blue sequins are perfect - of course shaker cards are my favorite.
