Hello! I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again with some bath-time inspiration! I’ve had the Lawn Fawn Rub-A-Dub-Dub set for a while and haven’t had a chance to pull it out and use it.

I’m over on the Heffy Doodle blog today with a card featuring the Oceans of Love stamp set. I think rays are fascinating creatures and I love going through the glass tunnels in aquariums.

I’m back on the Heffy Doodle blog today with some Yappy Happy Thanks Mail! What better way to thank someone than to send them a card full of thanks? I started out by stamping the UK post box, the paper plane and four letters from the Yappy Happy Mail set onto some blending cardstock using Memento Ink. I coloured them…

I’m over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today with a couple of baby cards featuring the MFT Hello, Little One set. I made one in pink and one in blue, though I plan to colour up some more in green and purples. I stamped out the characters in the set onto some blending card stock using some MFT…
