Creating Kindness Blog Hop

I was asked a few months ago if I would like to be a Guest Designer on the Creating Kindness Blog Hop and of course I said yes - what an honor and great opportunity to craft! I'm so inspired by all the talented people on this design team and figured I had plenty of time to get creating. At the time February was so far away and I knew I would have time to create something by then...Ha...as it turns out I blinked and February is here! 


As you may know, I haven't created anything in months - life, family, business, lack of motivation, loss of creativity - the usual stuff! I finally sat this week and made a card...and it felt good. I made a giant mess in the process, but it felt good! So here I am, I'm back and hopefully you will see a little more of me.

The theme for this hop is 'Birthday', which is perfect because I made this card for a friend who always sends me beautifully made birthday cards and I neglected to give her one last year (and I think maybe even the year before that!) so I made this 'especially' for her.

I used a stamp set that I have been wanting to use for a long time called Botanical Bliss on page 20 from the Annual Catalogue. The flowers in this set are so pretty and the font is also really lovely. It's a very versatile set and I didn't event notice the 'to:' and 'from:' until I started using it - great to make sweet and simple tags, I might just need to get onto that!
