Happy Monday...

Hi all,

Well can you believe it's April already! I've had a lovely weekend, busy making a few cards for myself and for commissions. I'll upload the cards I've been making, but I'll sneak peek the commission one just in case the intended person sees it on my blog. I had a lot of fun making this one, and was just told that the lady likes greens and yellows and that she'd like it personalised with her name. A box was made to match which will hold a gorgeous gift to celebrate a special birthday.

I'll be able to reveal the whole card and matching box after Saturday :)

Okay, the next two cards I've made I used the
Level 1 Hostess Stamp set called "A Little Bit of Happiness". This is the stamp set you can choose to own if you reach £150 worth of sales. It's a set of four stamps: friend, hello, love and thank you. Besides a choice of four different stamp sets (From The Garden, A Little Bit of Happiness, Best Yet and Organic Grace) or a Patterns Pack of Designer Series Paper, you get to choose £15 of merchandise from the current Idea Book and Catalogue for free!

A Little Bit of Happiness
- hello

I used some designer series papers, Level 1 hostess stamp set and was inspired by Carole for the scalloped flower in the bottom right hand corner. Click here to see her tutorial of the card she made for me back in February for wishing me good luck with my Open House Day.

I used some more designer series papers, another stamp from the Level 1 hostess stamp set, Circle of Friendship stamp set and lots of Dazzling Diamonds for a wow effect!

Okay people, thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed the quick post and be back another time with more uploads from me.

Have a good day,
