Happy @ HB CTC#27

Each week at CASE-ing The Catty we turn to our Stampin' Up! Catalogues for inspiration. This week we are seeking inspiration from the Occasions Catalogue  Join us blog hopping and hopefully it will inspire you. If  a project makes you happy, please leave a comment.You may have arrived from H2 Designs, if so, did you like Helen's card? If you are beginning here with me, you can click on the links at the end of our blogs until you have gone all the way around the team.

You can view the online version of the catalogue with a click here. We are CASE-ing from the Memory Keeping section. My memory keeping is a bit spasmodic, I'm still working on the earliest part of my overseas adventure in 2013, and I'm nearly ready to visit Europe again. Even my family photos aren't really up to date. So, I've used the idea of a window with a word over it, as shown on page 48, to create a masculine birthday card. Happy from the Hello You Thinlets was cut from black Chalkboard Paper, because it is so sturdy. @ , #Hello,was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and shows through a round opening cut in the card front. Sadly, this stamp has made it onto the Retirement List, so you can get it at a reduced price while stock lasts. The clear mount is $23.21, while wood mount is $32.21.

After trying a couple of additional greetings, I settled on HB from Balloon Bash, because the hashtag suits the rest of the card. When it still seemed to need a little more, Gorgeous Grunge filled the need for some splatters in black.

Do you think we'll see Crazy About You and the Hello You Thinlets in the next Annual Catalogue? Not too long till we find out, but I certainly hope so.

Hostess code

If you choose to shop with me to stock up on your Stampin' Up! supplies and remember to use the hostess code, I will mail you an additional small gift.

Perhaps you want to order from the Weekly Deals on a Wednesday, and you're not sure if you might do that again in a week or two. If you use the code each time, all your totals will accrue, giving you a chance to spend some hostess dollars too. I keep track of that for you and contact you with the amount you have available to spend, if the 'Virtual Party' reaches $300 and qualifies for Hostess Dollars.

The code is only 'good' for one month. It is typed above the online shop button over to the right if you are reading this online or just before my signature at the end of this post. Just copy and paste the code into the section for Hostess code on the page where you enter payment details.

This month's Hostess Code is 6MGVWWGH

Next stop on this blog is Rebecca Benson.
