Hello. I'm back from a couple of weeks family holiday down on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula and the boys are both back at school this morning so I'm raring to go on a creative 2016!
One of my intentions this year is to send more of the cards I make! It all started with one of my fabulous Stampin' Up! friends, Shannon West, vowing to #imbringingbirthdaysback by sending handmade cards and not just wishing people happy birthday on Facebook. Now THAT was a bandwagon I wanted to be on! There really is nothing like a handmade card to brighten someone's day. Anyone with me on that goal? I'm aiming to send 200 cards this year, and am off to a good start with 14 cards in the mail last month.
I'll keep you posted with my total during the year. I know I can do this. Imagine all the samples I will have to share too!
Here's a birthday card I completed this week using the Party with Cake stamp set, and It's My Party DSP from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue. I've also added a balloon using the new balloon punch which cut 2 size of balloons (how easy can birthday cards get?).
