Today is World Card Making Day, so I am getting together with some friends and fellow Demonstrators to bring you a blog hop to celebrate the day and provide some creative inspiration for your card making. You may have come to my blog from the lovely Kate Morgan, but if not, you can start here and keep hopping around!
I love making cards and I think a handmade card is still the nicest way to express our feelings, whether that be happiness, gratitude or sometimes sorrow. Who doesn't like getting happy mail? Today I have made a card to tell a friend that I am thankful for her friendship and support and it will be winging its way to her very soon. I hope she likes it.
I haven't used the 'Stippled Blossoms' stamp set for ages so it was nice to break it out again. I really love the detail that you get with 2-step stamps. I truly miss 'Pretty in Pink' which was my all time favourite colour to use with this set. This time I have used Blushing Bride and Strawberry Slush which I was quite happy with, and Pink Pirouette on the mat and ribbon to keep it bright.
