Happy Blooming Birthday FMS#166


Today, I took delivery of my BBB (big brown box) full of new things for the new year so, in between my weekly cleaning, catching up on Project Life and writing Christmas cards, I
decided to put together a card for Freshly Made Sketches using a stamp set from this year's Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue.

So Very Grateful is no longer available, not every stamp set in the mini catalogues makes it into an annual. It is such a fun stamp to colour with Blendabilities (there are new colours in Blendabilities in the Occasions Catalogue) but you could substitute and use the I Like You Hostess stamp or another open-style flower stamp. Its a shame that the 'happy' from the sentiment has been slightly lost in the floral image. Party Pennants Bigz die makes an interesting shape to stamp on and underlined with one of the Boutique Borders strips is a perfect finishing touch. Simple, understated, modern.

I'm very excited by the new stamps and project kits in the upcoming Occasions Catalogue, and can hardly wait to share some of the loveliness with you!
Bye for now
Rachel
