Happy Birthday, Wendy!


Good Morning!
 
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 are a few of my favorite Repeat Impressions creations:

(This last card was something I made from searching the web for "Geocaching," which is something that Wendy likes to do.)  I hope your birthday was an adventure, Wendy!

Please hop along to see what my fellow Rock Stars have to share for Wendy!
 
 
 
Thanks for hopping with us!  If you have a minute, please go to the RI blog, The House that Stamps Built, and leave Wendy a bit of Birthday love!!!
 
Hugs and smiles,

What a gorgeous Birthday card, like the bright colors and how you layered it Laurie, and what a great idea with the "Geocaching"!

I love my "special" birthday card, Laurie! Thank you for taking the time to look up "geocaching" and creating a card around it. It is a true one of a kind and you are too sweet! And what you did with my floral background stamp is pretty cool too... so warm and colorful! It's one of my favorite cards of yours also. Thank you for everything!
Hugs,
Wendy

That geocaching card is so unique and a winner for Wendy's birthday, Laurie. The embossed floral is stunning! I love the white embossing against those colors.
