Fab Friday – Thank Yooou!

The team over at Fab Friday have posted a clean and simple sketch for their challenge this time. It was just what I needed for this special thank you card for my aunt who has, once again, shown what a generous “I’ll do anything for those I love” person she is.

She also has a great sense of humor…

Stamp Review Crew – Sale-a-bration Hop!

Stamp Review Crew blog banner(2)

Hello and welcome to a short and sweet Blog Hop with the Stamp Review Crew. At the moment, Stampin’ Up! is celebrating the new year with our annual Sale-a-bration promotion. Always a favorite, this is where you get to choose free product for every (US) $50 in merchandise purchased. Today’s hop features creations made using these fun products!

As soon as I saw the offered items, the Part of My Story stamp set jumped out at me. The set includes six sentiments you can use to encourage someone or let them know how special they are to you! I think they’ll also work well on scrapbook pages of your special people, too! And, of course, one of the fun things about sentiment sets is that you can pair them with other supplies to make your creations sing!

Thinking slow on a Sunday

You know, I would love to be able to WOW you with verbal wit or a thought-provoking post. But this is one of those days where the vibe seems to be one of relaxing, doing a few quiet chores and sharing a couple of card-making things with you.

Freshly Made Sketches challenge 367

 

An important share is a reminder that FMS is looking for new designers, in case you’re interested. I’m a fan of the site and appreciate the sketches and inspiration shared there. Be sure to check them out and scroll down below the sketch to view the entries for even more inspiration! This layout on the left is the current FMS challenge; it’s nice and open, leaving lots of room for interpretation.

This card along with a few others were created for Bring Smiles to Seniors. This group of volunteers sends donated cards to residents of nursing homes, assisted & independent living communities, home-bound seniors, and seniors participating in elderly nutrition program. Isn’t that lovely? If you would like to be involved in donating cards to worthy causes, I invite you to visit their page or check out the Cards for a Cause forum on Splitcoast Stampers. It’s a great way to share your handmade creations.💞
