Do You Like Happy Mail??

Hello.  Welcome.  It was my birthday last weekend.  I'm chatting to my mum and she says she doesn't know what to get me.  Ahhh, well.  There's a package coming for me.  Why don't you send it on and it will be the perfect gift.  I knew it would be the perfect gift cos it was some crafty goodies I had had my eye on.  The really funny thing about this story was it was me, in Norway, ordering Swedish goodies from the UK, to be sent to Norway!!   Talk about round the houses!!  Anyway, here's a make using my perfect birthday present.  Thanks Mum.   

I cut a black panel using the Gummiapan Stitched Square die.  I have been wanting some square dies and the stitching is just such a lovely detail.  These cut really well and are excellent value for money.  Then I cut the Integrated Star die from gold mirror card.  I stamped and coloured the cute Mini Bunny Tilda with distress inks and fussy cut her.  These are less that 5cm, but very detailed, and I have a few ideas to see where I can perch them.  They are on offer at Swedish House Crafts if you are interested.  I think they will be perfect for ATC's etc.  I used another of the Stitched Square dies to cut my card base.  I couldn't find the sentiment or text dies I wanted so I scribbled my own words with a gold pilot marker and outlined with a white gel pen.

OK, so if you like happy mail, the Card Chain Challenge May sign up is open until 6th May.  This is an international card exchange.  You send a card and get a card in return.  Would love you to join the fun.  All details and past reveals of the fantabulous cards that have winged their way around the globe can be viewed on the blog.  The April reveal will be posted on 2nd May.  

Also, in case you missed it, I was Growing in Unity the past week and have two Unity stamp grab bags to give away.  Check out this post for details and all the links.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
