Hello,, Welcome to warm Melbourne. It’s been a hot summer’s day today. What sort of weather have you been enjoying (or maybe not enjoying!) over in your corner of the world?
Thank you for joining us in our monthly journey Around the World on Wednesday. You may be stopping by from Jan Clothier’s blog where you would have been treated to some lovely work. Welcome to Jan who is hopping with us for the first time today.
If you are a regular here or a visitor I’m so glad you’ve had a chance to stop by. You’ve Got Mail is the theme for our Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop. We are specially focusing on the inside – as in, why do we send cards?
No matter what the occasion is – be it birthday, wedding, retirement, sympathy, birth – a card is to let someone know we are thinking of them and our main goal is to cheer up and bring joy to the recipient. So with that in mind, I set to creating this card using the Hey Chick bundle which just exudes fun for me. Out came this cheeky, chicky card.
I cut apart my stamp from the Approaching Perfection stamp set so I could stamp the words ‘News Flash’ as a background. Cutting your stamps apart can offer you more creative possibilities. I also added some stamped hearts from the Punch Party stamp set which is a set that can’t be bought. It is given to you FREE with any workshop order or personal order of $500*. This is so achievable, especially during Sale-A-Bration as all orders over $90 also get a free product and if you are the Host, you get the Punch Party stamp set*.
The rooster and egg were coloured in a mix of Stampin’ Blends. These 2 characters made me laugh. The rooster towering over the egg makes it look like it’s going to give the egg a good scolding but then it says ‘you’re a good egg’. So I hope the recipient has a laugh too.
Of course, I had to do a bit of decorating on the ‘inside’ because it’s all about the inside this month.
Thank you so much for sharing in my fun creation. I hope you get to enjoy creating with this set and it’s sister set – Hey Birthday Chick which are available for a limited time. Please click on the Next Blog button to see Cheryll Miller’s beautiful creation.
