Guy Greetings Card for Dad ~ Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

As you read this I'll be in the Gold Coast, Australia soaking up all the exciting things they have for us at Stampin' Up! Convention 2015. I'm looking forward to coming back all inspired and rearing for another SU! year of fun. Thank you to all those who support me month after month. You are the heartbeat of what I do.

While I'm gone we, the Artisan Design Team, are featuring the Guy Greetings stamp set. You might have seen it in some feminine cards for my April Artisan Facebook Project here. UK Artisan, Vicky Hayes, made a stunning scene on her card with the vintage car a couple weeks back. But to me this set screams Hipster - check out the little hand drawn moustache! I hope you can see how versatile this set is. I'm loving it.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Love Like a Mum Card ~ Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

This is definitely the kind of sentiment you put on a card to your mum - especially when you have kids of your own and fully get a grasp all that she did for you that you don't even remember. That really is love. My Mum is such a constant source of wisdom and support in my life and I'm honoured to have her as a friend. Thanks Mum.

As you know this sentiment isn't so straight forward for some of us. Remember that you don't have to have physically given birth to someone to express motherly love and similarly, you don't have to have a physical Mum in your life to appreciate the love of a woman you respect. 


In April we're trying something new with the Artisan team: all 16 of us are synchronising what product we use each week in our posts. This week as you hop through you're going to see lots of fabulous ideas with the 'Mum's Love' stamp set (*Mom* if you use the US spelling!). 

Quick Reference: Mother's Day in New Zealand coming up soon ~ Sunday 10th May, 2015.
