It was deliberately sentiment-free to allow it to be sent as a pick-me-up to someone who is self-isolating or social distancing . I’ve used Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove for some brighter Spring colours. I’m going to miss these In Colors when they

Happy Birthday To You

It was the Birthday of one of my regular Card & Cuppa attendees recently, so I obviously made them a card. They are not a fan of random or grunge, preferring simple and ordered projects instead. The Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set in this year’s SAB offering was just perfect. I stamped the cake
