Happy Day in three minutes!

There are some great sentiments in the new Stampin' Up catalogue, but my favourite has to be the one I've used today. It's the big 'smile' from Happy Day which seems to have exactly the same effect as a real smile! Come and see:


I used my new Gingham wheel to start this design. It was inked up with Pool Party ink and rolled in the centre of the panel, and the sentiment was stamped over the top in luscious Bermuda Bay ink. I underlined it with a narrow strip of washi tape (TIP: If you want your washi to be narrower, lay a piece onto a scrap of card stock and cut it with scissors or a trimmer before peeling off and re-sticking onto your project.)


It was time to embellish! I added stamped leaves from Bright Blossoms, one of the gorgeous little dahlia embellishments, a punched heart to dot the 'i' and some extra floral washi accents - all designed to put the focus on that show-stopper of a sentiment!

And talking of gorgeous sentiments, if you've had your eye on Sassy Salutations, Petite Pairs or Sweet Essentials, now could well be the time to order them...


Sassy Salutations now £16.95 cling mount/£20.95 wood mount
Petite Pairs now £20.95 cling mount/£25.95 wood mount
Sweet Essentials now £13.95 cling mount/£17.95 wood mount

And why not order some gorgeous new stash from the new catalogue at the same time?!

Have you been watching the tennis at Wimbledon? I haven't had time to see much at all over the last week but I did manage to catch a bit of the drama yesterday when Andy Murray had a bit of a tough match against Fernando Verdasco. Who needs to run around a tennis court when you can get an excellent cardio workout on your own sofa?!

I'll be back tomorrow to show off some more of my new stash! Hope to see you then,

  15. Vicky, your card made me smile, it's so pretty.

    I've been glued to the tennis, and I'm typing this waiting for Andy to come out for the semi final!

    What with Wimbledon and the British Grand Prix, I've been in heaven crafting along with them on the tv
