I’m Happy …. Let’s Hop & Shop!

MFT-Bedtime-wm

It’s release day over on MFT Stamps, which means it is time to join the MFT Stamps Design Team for another "Blog Hop and Shop!".

The hop started at Kim's (MFT Lady) blog so if you didn’t start from there you may want to head over there now so that you can start at the beginning of the hop. You don't want to miss anything and believe me there is lots to see!

Tonight I'm featuring the Happy Thoughts stamp set, I used this for my sentiments on this card. For my first card I decided to make a wild card type card, I haven’t created one of these in a number of years until the other day when I made one at a shoebox swap.

As you can see I have also used the PI – Bedtime Stories stamp set. I just adore this stamp set … I love all the PI sets! Like stamps you can never have too many Pure Innocence stamps hehe! I paper pieced the bed and lamp on the image.

For the inside of my card I used another of the sentiments from the Happy Thoughts set as well as using the Polka Dot Greetings Die & Stamp Duo. I love this die/stamp set and will be using it a lot more in the future.

Here is one more view of the inside of my card, this time showing the whole inside of the card.

For my second card today I just used the sentiments from the Happy Thoughts stamp set. I used two Die-namic dies to create this, which were the Framed Greeting Die and the Jumbo Scallop Border Die.

Here is the inside of my card, I kept it very simple and just added the one sentiment from the Happy Thoughts set.
