Today I’m featuring the CM339 Teacup Flowers set. Of course, it’s a caffeinated design. The fun sentiment is from Irreverent Birthday Messages.
I used Gina K Designs’ Wreath Builders, she is one of the many prize sponsors.
Hero Hues Papers, oh wow, such a lovely rainbow of colors. No surprises that I used the gorgeous PS308 Hero Hues Kiwi.
Check out the interior of my 4.25 x 4.25 card:
The sentiment is from CM299 Tea Time. Who doesn’t love a tea party?!
I went through my blog archives to find a project that featured the Hero Arts Big Owl and found THIS. I found several others but whoa, my style has change a ton through the years. Keeping this super real, check out this Hero Arts Haiku Bunny project from the very first month of blogging in 2007.
Yup, I still own those stamps:
Next up is the fabulous Art Impressions! In case you get lost along the way, here’s the complete hop listing:
