Here's another project I made using the fabulous Gently Falling set which is on the 25% discount list:

If you were wondering what I did with the rest of the designer paper I'd stamped for yesterday's card look no further! I used it on this card along with the lovely 'smile' sentiment from Happy Day - and yes, THAT's on the 25% discount list too! There was plenty of the stamped card stock left to make another couple of cards as well as this matching box:

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed the little tag... It's stamped with That's the Ticket (yet another gorgeous stamp set on the 25% discount list!) and cut out with the coordinating punch. I added a sentiment and a tiny punched flower decorated with a candy dot - these are BRILLIANT! (I may have mentioned this previously once or twice or er... 800 times!)

Yesterday evening my daughter looked up from her laptop. "Last night I dreamt I was being strangled," she said cheerfully. "Shall I look up what that means?" She tapped away for a few minutes, googling the meaning of dreams, and then I heard her giggle. "These are the replies:" she said. "'You might be a bit worried' and 'I hope you don't get strangled'!"We laughed for a bit and then I suggested she might tidy her room to avoid the possibility of being strangled by her mother!
