Hello Again birthday - again!

Last week I got my Hello Again stamp set out for the first time in a long while. Well, I fell in love with it all over again and had a lovely time experimenting with it. Here's another of the cards I made when I was coming up with a design for my niece:

The Happy Birthday stamp from the level 1 hostess set Afterthoughts makes a great bold anchor in the corner of this card and I liked the idea that the coloured hearts had just blown in from the right!

Let's zoom in on those hearts. I love the little bit of texture on this heart stamp!

Now, here's a thought: You may have noticed that there's a fabulous free gift up for grabs this month with an order of £75... but make it an order for £150 and you'll not only get the free gift (worth over £18) but also a free level 1 hostess set (for example the Afterthoughts set that today's sentiment comes from) AND £15 to spend in any of the current catalogues! Definitely worth thinking about!

Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Hello Again, Afterthoughts (hostess)
Ink: Assorted
Card stock: Whisper White, Melon Mambo
Other: Stamp-a-majig
You can buy any of these supplies from me and I can have them delivered to your address in the UK. Just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593.

I do apologise if you've been thinking I've been a bit lax about commenting on your blogs this week but I'm currently away in Northern Ireland visiting some of my lovely relatives there. I've scheduled my posts this week but next week you'll notice that posts will be a little random to say the least! Don't worry though, I'm still answering email enquiries, taking orders and offering my usual high standard of customer service.

Have a great weekend and I shall see you back here very soon.
