Hello Sweet Friend

Six-Sided Sampler

 Hello Sweet Friend,

Are you over the novelty of Arctic Blasts? Been there, done that already?  Are you ready for spring?  Today's card is like a beam of sunshine with its crisp white spaces, Daffodil Delight Gingham and bright Flowers. 

I'm trying a new service today.  Be sure to let me know what you think.  You will notice that all the supplies for today's card are pictured below with clickable links.  Do you find this helpful or would you prefer just a simple supply list?  Let me know in the comments below.

Six-Sided Sampler

 Such a pretty Card deserves a lined envelope.

 Hexagons are all the rage and I used 3 layers of them.  To go deep I punched a hexagon through my Argle embossed panel and slipped a stamped "Hello Sweet Friend" below it.  The tweener layer is Gingham stamped with Daffodil Delight punched and layered on my Argle embossed panel. Finally, my upper level is Gingham Garden DSP punched and lifted with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 Even the inside is pretty.  Thanks for stopping by.

A Quick & Complete Recovery

For the Birds

Our young nephew is recovering from a heart transplant.  With the whisper of spring in the  air, he now has a new chance at life.  I wanted a card that was like a breath of fresh air.  My colors are Pool Party, Smoky Slate and a hint of Crisp Cantaloupe.  The Gorgeous Grunge stamp set came to the rescue once again adding splashes of fresh color.

Thoughts & Prayers

Love my spools of Sweet Sorbet Baker's Twine that I received as a free gift for Sale-a-Bration. The Crisp Cantaloupe Bow supplies a happy accent. I highlighted my Get Well Wish using my Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack. Perfect Spacing and lines are a breeze with the   Paper-piercing Templates.

Giggle Greetings Pop Up Card

Giggle Greeting Pop Up Birthday Card

 Pop Ups and Giggles make a perfect Birthday Card. What can I say, I like quirky things and the quirky stamps from the Giggle Greetings stamp set always bring a smile.  Add a pop up on the inside and double the delight.

For Crisp Black & White Accents I colored the candle with a Basic Black Marker & a Chalk Marker. A Basic Black Taffeta Double Bow seconded that.  Learn to tie your own Double Bows Here
