AAA Cards #65 and 2nd Birthday and blog Hop!

Hi There,

Lots of fun happening here today. Not only is it my first time joining the Design Team at AAA cards but it is our 2nd Birthday.



We want to see lots of CAS Birthday cards for this challenge plus we have an amazing amount of sponsors with lots of ways to win-check out how at our blog here


I decided to make a very 'Sandie' card for my first card at AAA and used my fav colour and background stamp that my very good friend Nonni give and this bold sentiment from Winnie and Walter

  • My Treasure hunt word is somewhere in this post (it might be in bold and my fav colour!!)
My question is:

  • Which city do you love best and why?

Mine is London and I like it because 'you can never get bored of London'

If you leave a comment on my post and answer this question you could win a £10 gift voucher from UnikoI will choose my favourite answer.

Now time to blog hop. Hop to each DT member's blog, we all have prizes to be won:

  3. I love this! Super simple but so pretty! My favourite city is...ok I can't pick...Prague for the beauty, London for things to do and Paris for the culture!

  4. A spectacular Sandie style showcase and welcome to your first outing as an AAA Design Teamie - so thrilled to have you on board! Arrrgh Cities I'm not a city girl to be honest I need space and peace and scenery. I adore Switzerland so would have to say Geneva as it's on the gorgeous lake with stunning views yet still close to all the hussle, bussle and expensive shops of the city!!!! Sarah x

  7. Lovely one-layer, Sandie. I'm a country girl, so I don't have a favorite city. :) Give me some trees and a lake or the beach (without people)!

  8. Beautiful card Sandie! so you and perfect for your kick off at AAA! My favorite city would be London too...so much to do...and I get to do it with my family - you! xx

  9. Signature card Sandie and an absolute beauty - love that purple! Mmm favourite city? Well I'm with Melissa and prefer the peace and quiet of the countryside, but I do rather like the town of Bury St Edmunds if that counts or anywhere with a good M&S pleases me.

  10. Love your special Sandy style! A great and "popping"card!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Forgot to answer the question: Eindhoven; it is such a bubble city with old and new, lot of technique and design! (And I was born there...)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Beautiful simple and striking card! I love magenta too. My favourite city...hmm hard to choose. Singapore cause it has the best Asian food, New York cause it has the best food from everywhere and London, cause its the closest place I can fly to for good Asian food, and it has the Tate Gallery!

  13. I'm just going to have to say Seattle, where I live. Love home.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lovely card! My favorite city is Boise. I love that it is a bigger city, but it's still small enough that I am not overwhelmed by all the people and places to visit!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love your card, simple and the color is striking. My favorite city is NYC. That's where I am now babysitting my two granddaughters. Not a lot of time to get out and enjoy the city, but I'm looking forward to my next visit.

    ReplyDelete
  16. LOVE!! what a delightful card for this "challenge" which I am guessing is your hidden word! : )

    I love Stillwater, MN which is located on the St. Croix River. It is not only a beautiful historic town in a stunning setting it is where my husband and I got married! : )

    Thanks for all the fun Sandie!

  17. Pretty card! Love that bold sentiment and the fun color... great little sequin stamp to embellish it too!
    My favorite city... Santa Barbara, CA! I lived there when I was little and grew up not too far from there. Lots of great memories of visiting my grandparent's home there and spending holidays at their Victorian house. Also the beach and the shops on State Street were always a treat to see!

    ReplyDelete
  18. That is a great font on your card. Very nice.
    My favorite city ... hmmm... hard to say for sure but I really liked Miami when I was there last year. I have never been to England or Ireland or Europe but I bet I could find a favorite in one of those places. Or Hawaii or.... My favorite would probably have to be wherever I am at any given time. There is always something to love wherever you are.

  19. such a fun blog hop, LOVE the treasure hunt!!! Your card is wonderful, I really like the clean and simple look! Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along with us this week over at the Mod Squad!

    Oh, and my favorite city to visit is Grand Rapids, Michigan. I'm a Mitten Girl!

  20. Awesome CAS card! I don't have a favorite city. In fact I don't like the big cities. I was born in Chicago and I don't even like Chicago. I'm a country girl and have lived in the country almost my entire life. There's nothing like sitting outside in the evening and sipping lemonade, looking up at the stars and listening to the crickets or loons.

  21. Really Sandie card

  26. What a fun way to celebrate a birthday Sandie! Your card is a perfect CAS and I guess that's your fav color! ;) My fave city is New York which I want to visit at least once in my life time! :)

  27. Its a very 'Sandie' card alright! All CAS, purple, and awesome! :)
    I don't really have a favorite 'city' - I live in Bangalore - I used to love it before, but not so much now.. Can it be a town instead - I would definitely vote for my hometown, Mattu! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Simple and stunning that is how will describe the card. For me my favorite city is my hometown Nagpur, India. I have been living in different cities since almost a decade now but I have grown up there they say it right home is where your heart is :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love this card so much. Mine is Liverpool - so pretty and so much to do and something for everyone.

  30. Pretty Card!the city that i love the best is Mumbai,India from where I am as it is so versatile,called the city that dreams and never sleeps and you can find everything that you ever wanted here

    ReplyDelete
  31. Simply beautiful! Love the CAS design! It's my dream to go to Hawaii with my husband!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wow, wonderful! love the splash of color and the bold black of the sentiment! I am not really a city girl, don't like it when it is so crowded and full of traffic, but I have been in London twice and loved the places we visited and did.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What an amazing splash of your fave colour Sandie... terrific card, and so beautifully CAS!
    I've been to lots of cities... I must say a fave that I've visited a couple of times is Sydney, for atmosphere, sights, culture and food!
    Happy 2nd Birthday AAA

  34. Love the simplicity off this lovely card! My fav city is Washington DC - love the history, museums and beautiful gardens:)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great use of this stamp! I love the way you stamped it partly off. A very Sandie card! My fave city, this is a hard one.... In Finland my favorite city is Helsinki with all it's cool cafes and restaurants + beautiful outdoor spaces where to hang out... And the presence of the sea is all the time in the air. From places abroad... I think my fave city must be London! I love the mixed atmosphere of London with businessmen, tourists and trendy or bohemian locals... The shops, the restaurants and THE PARKS. Love the parks. Love love love. Oh and I do love Howarths too, the woodwind shop, although they always "rob" me. ;) I also love my favorite Sandie who lives there and her beautiful flat!

  36. Oh and congrats on being in AAA team now, woo hoo!

  37. I loved everything about Savannah, Georgia!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great card! Love the combo of color and stamps. I have great memories of San Francisco which I guess would have to a favorite but I love to spend time on Captiva Island rather than in the "city". Happy Birthday to all of you at AAA Cards!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wow. Love it! My favorite town it's somewhere at the world hihi. Always dreaming of going to NEW YORK. Don't ask me why! DOn't know it Sorry! I live in the Netherlands in my country I love to go to Arnhem time to time, and that's closer by than New York.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Lovely CAS card! Wow, I'm not sure I can pick just one favorite city because I love so many for different reasons. Some of my favorites in the US are New York, Boston, San Francisco, and Portland. Some of my favorites I've visted outside the US are Paris, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Lisbon. I'll be traveling to Sydney later this year and have a feeling it will be on my list soon, too. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love the gorgeous CAS design and the most stunning magenta colour! Thank you for playing along with the STAMPlorations CAS Challenge. We hope to see you back again soon! Karola, DT, InvisiblePinkCards
    Also, my favourite city is Helsinki, I never appreciated my home town until I moved to another country, and now every time I go back I just marvel at the beauty of the city I didn't see before - the sunsets over the sea in the summer or the glistening snow and the beautiful lights in the winter. And now I'm making myself home sick :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Such a wonderful CAS card. I love the bright purply pink brush strokes off the side, and the bold black sentiment. Hard to pick a favorite city in the US, and I have only been to Canada and Mexico outside, but it has to be New York. Amazing place. Washington, Seattle, and San Francisco are also on my list.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lovely purple card... hmmm I guess somewhere in Florida maybe Destin area. I plain ole love the beach

    ReplyDelete
  44. This card is truly "Sandie-style" and I adore it!
    My favorite city is Munich - it was/feels like home. I love it because it's not too big but there is always something going on all year long. And it's beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Bright, vibrant, CAS and so you, Sandie! Fave city ... goodness, there are so many ... how about Rome ... it's the eternal city after all! Hugs, Anita :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love your CAS card. So bright and pretty. :)
    My favourite city is Mumbai... Because the city never sleeps (I know it's cliched, but it's true) ;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Beautiful Color you used on your card! My favorite city is New York City. I love the musical theater!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Very Sandie signature style card, CAS and purple and fab!
    Favorite city? Here's the thing. My goal is to visit as many countries and places as I can while I can, so can't revisit all the places I've loved for different reasons. But I have 2 exceptions. Dubai for its east meets west atmosphere and city and beach, 2 in 1! Love visiting Prague, I've lost track on how many times I've been there. Love their rustic cuisine, the ambiance and nice prices. And the architecture is just wow. But Oslo is a city I love to live in. It's by a fjord, lots of nature and never too crowded, there's seldom need to move around to avoid the crowd while walking in the city centre, it's very stress free.

  49. Yes, a Sandie-licious card in every way! Love that bold pop of colour! Favourite city: Bend, Oregon. My husband 'discovered' this fabulous city when he was scouting out US bike races to compete in, which was the Cascade Classic. Our first visit was stellar...and a guarantee that we'd be back again...and again...and again. I LOVE Bend!
    Hugs~c

  50. I was drawn to your card by by that big blotch in magenta no less.
    I love it, I was surprised I was visiting London. This is such an international hobby go figure. I saw you on mod squad..

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oops, Supposed to say magenta I'm supposed to mention the city I love me that always has to be Paris I would go there every year if I could and stay for half of the year

    ReplyDelete
  52. Super card, gorgeous design and vibrant colours. I'm not at all a city person but my favourite day in a city was when my daughter took us to Sydney when we visited her a few years ago xx

    ReplyDelete
  53. Beautifully CAS card, really striking.
    My favourite city is Vienna, I love the buildings, the music, the parks and gardens, the surrounding countryside, the food and wine, and the wonderful foodie shopping paradise of the Naschmarkt.

  54. I love how bright and cheerful your card is! I love SO many beautiful cities! My favorite city right now is the last one I visited, Charleston, South Carolina. It is a beautiful Southern city on the Atlantic coast, with pastel antebellum mansions, horse-drawn carriages, and amazing low country cuisine! Beautiful and romantic!

    ReplyDelete
  55. WOW... this is a fun and cheerful birthday card! Love it! Our favorite city is Chicago :)

    ReplyDelete

  67. Love your card - as I scrolled through the comments to the end I noticed the term - Sandie-liscious!! That is definitely what this card is!! My favorite city is Seattle, WA!! So many amazing things to do and see there!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Very lovely card. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Wonderfully purple, Sandie! My favorite city is Rome. You can't turn a corner without your jaw hitting the ground because you see something you read about in art or history class. And a fabulous place to people watch, my favorite pasttime.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Your card is CAS perfection.
    As for my favourite city, I'm not sure. I loved the few weekends that I spent in Edinburgh with DH. Loved the manageable size and the friendly people. I think I could live there, but the same goes for Sidney, where I stayed with friends who lived there for 4 years. Such a fabulous and multicultural city with beautiful beaches and nature nearby.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Fabulous first 'Sandie' card for your new AAA DT position!! I love New York City, like London you could never be bored and would love to take the kids there one day!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love Hsinchu, Taiwan. Even though it's hot, super humid and has all sorts of bugs and mosquitos, it's my home. I didn't know how much I'll miss it until coming to the U.S. for college. It's been a year since I've gone back, and I really miss the food, how convenient it is and how cheap things are back in Hsinchu. (excluding crafting supplies, stamps and dies etc. are imported and are so expensive in Taiwan!)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Quite an interesting post! This birthday party sounds seems fun-filled and enjoyable. Thanks for sharing these details. I am thinking to host a cute party for my son on his 4th birthday. Planning to book one of party venues in Houston in budget.
