Today’s Hop List:


Impression Obsession released 10 stamp sets that have several phrases to go along with a featured word and a die that matches.
 Happy was used here.


  I have used the Happy die cut and covered part of the square window on the mini shaker. The scallop and square frame is from the All-in-One Frames-Square 2 die set.

How cute are those Balloons that I have used to embellish my card...love those die cut strings!



The inside of the card is decorated with birthday candles from the Large Candle Block Stamp and Die Set.


Good luck on the hop and thanks for the comments!
