Make The Day Special Blog Hop

Hi everyone.  Just a quick note to say that my blog is going to be a little bit quiet for a couple of weeks because I’m getting married, so am taking a bit of time off but I will be back raring to go very soon but before I go a few of the Make The Day Special girls have planned a mini blog hop for you.  We all thought it would be fun to showcase a particular set of stamps and see all of the different ideas we would come up with using the same stamps.

We chose Lawn Fawn’s Blissful Botanicals as our first set and I created this card…

I'm not sure if you can tell from the picture but I stamped the pink and chocolate cardstock with the leaves stamp (I call this my Orla Kiely stamp!!)  to create some texture, I then stamped the sentiment onto the white panel to which I rounded the corners.  Finally I stamped and coloured the little flower and butterfly. A few gems and a big striped ribbon finished it off.

If you like what you see pop on over to the Make The Day Special shop and grab yourself this gorgeous set.

I’m entering this into the Retro Sketches challenge with their gorgeous sketch of the week…
You should have come from Lucia’s blog.  I’m your last stop.

Just in case you missed part of the hop you can start at the Make The Day Special Blog or you can pick up the hop sequence here…
Me! (You’re here)

Have fun!  We hope you leave feeling truly inspired.

Don't forget to join in with the latest The Play Date Cafe challenge, it goes live today.  I've got withdrawal symptoms already!!
