Happy Day




If you follow me in Instagram or Facebook, you know that I have been very busy lately, making cards. It has been wonderful to try all this different techniques, all these new materials, I'm truly enjoying, just a slight problem, if I didn't have much spare time before, now it's even less, but it's worth it.

Joining Stampin Up has been great, the products are just fantastic, and you can really let yourself go.

And now, and up till the 31st of March, for every £45.00 you spend, you get a free product of your choice, and from today there's an extra four products you can choose, all free.

So really this is a fantastic chance to Join Stampin Up at the moment, there's quite a few freebies going, but if you want more information, please do not hesitate to contact me, or if you just want a few things, that's fine too, just visit my shop and that will take you direct to some wonderful things.

But joining SU also, gives you the chance, to join a fantastic group in Facebook, and there's always so much going on,  great ideas and tips, and if you have any queries, there's always somebody that can help you.

And today this is the group's first Blog Hop, we had to use products from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue and from the Spring/ Summer Catalogue, you can check them on the right hand side

So this is what I came up with, couldn't think of anything better then a Happy Day Card, you know I send cards, sometimes, for no specific reason, just because I feel like, just letting people know that I'm thinking of them, because with friends all over the World, and Family not living in the same country, it's always so nice to get something in the post, quite rare at the moment, with the internet

And their reactions, when they get them, is worth every single second I spent making the card.

I want to do more, and once I get up a speed or two .....I'm sure I will be sending more

I love the end result of this one, hope you do to, and I hope I have inspired you

And please visit the Ladies that have joined this Blog Hop, great ideas and there's also a giveaway.
Good Luck !!!

  12. Carla,
    It's a fun Blog Hop, but sadly it is stalling at your blog because the link to the Next Blog isn't working. The link to the Previous Blog does work. So I'm going to go backwards now!

  16. Love your card Carla! Really love your choice of colors with this set, soft enough it doesn't over power the stamped images. Also would have never thought to use the Confetti Stars border this way, very clever. Really enjoying the Pootler's blog hop and hope you all do it again soon!
