Welcome to the October Joyful Stars Blog Hop! If you are arriving here from Lucy’s Blog you are on the right path…if you’ve started here that’s ok too, we are a small circular hop and if you follow the links you’ll eventually end up right back where you started.
I have a new love in my life…the Basics Fundamentals Creative Collection. I have always been a “color girl” and have strayed away from the Basics and Whimsy color families – oh I’ve used them…just in small doses, however with the release of a revamped Basics Palette last August my shift has changed. The warm browns and grays are a magnificent match to the Color of the Year Bashful.
My card design comes directly from our Make It From Your Heart Idea book and instead of stamping I added a die cut Happy Birthday, although retired you can still find it in the Going Soon section of my website, of Bashful Glitter Paper. A wrap of Whisper Thick Twine and Bashful Pearls finished things off.
Don’t forget when you’re placing your order this month to round up for Operation Smile – Close to My Heart is matching donations up to $10,000. When you participate in our Share a Smile promotion by purchasing any of the special items or rounding up your order in support of Operation Smile™ you will automatically qualify for a chance to win a not-yet-released stamp set from our upcoming 2018 Seasonal Expressions 1 idea book! Close to My Heart will be choosing winners throughout the month of October, so any time you place an order, you can be a winner!
I hope you’ll take a minute to leave me a comment before hopping over to Debi’s blog – I’m sure she’ll have something fun to share.
