Believe

A number of years ago I adoped the word BELIEVE as my word. It was a time of new beginnings for me, and it struck me that all I had to do was believe. Believe I could make a new start, believe that I could be successful. Believe that I . . . whatever I needed at any moment, it was there to support me at any given time. I have a number of items around my home to remind me of this. Plaques, mugs, framed art I have made, an engraved polished stone, whatever I have found and collected over the years. The stamp set Itty Bitty Christmas has a stamp that simply says ‘believe’ and I used it on my card today.

So Saffron, Rococco Rose and Mint Macaron. I love all three of these colours, but probably would not put them together in a card if someone didn’t tell me to!

Happy Birthday Cow

You can imagine how happy I was to see the stamp set This Little Piggy. The cute pigs are so much fun. When the new annual catalogue came out in June my happy level went up another notch, with the Over The Moon stamp set. Now there is a cow stamp set for me to make more fun cards for my daughter.

How many times have you wished someone their happiest birthday ever? I know I have said it, and written in on birthday cards.

My card today will certainly let someone know I want them to have the happiest birthday thay have had yet. It’s their day, and I want to share in celebrating that.
