Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop - Sunshine & Happiness

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! You are currently visiting Carolynn Sander in Calgary, Alberta, Canada! If you have been hopping along you most likely arrived here via my talented Canadian counterpart Cathy Caines! I heart her and all of her works of art! ❤️

The theme for today is Sunshine & Happiness! I am loving the sunshine in Calgary today! Our weather was scorching hot here! It was so hot that we filled the pool up for our doggies and let them have a swim. I failed to take pictures, but we enjoyed the day none-the-less. Now for this month's project... I tried my best to infuse it with warmth and happiness! There are so many great products from the Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 catalogue that would fit this theme perfectly! Saying that, I played around with a few of my faves when making today's card!

What do you think? Does it scream happy? Also, can you believe that it is my Grandma's 91st Birthday next week? I think I will have to join her for a masked garden visit and bring her a little something along with this card to cheer her up. She makes me happy every time I chat with her. I have been calling her just about every day since this C word stuff started. I know she get's down being so isolated, so I hope I can make her smile with this card that I created. 😊 I am so blessed to have her in my life.

Above is a close up shot of the flowers on today's card. These flowers (as well as the grassy dies you see pictured above), are part of the Stampin' Up! Special Day Dies, & the Stampin' Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set. Both are available in the current Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. If you wish you can view these products up close in more detail by clicking on the "Shop" button at the end of today's post!

Up next in today's hop is Brian King! I can't wait to see what he has to share with us today! His projects always make me happy!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today! If you are in Canada and you are interested in purchasing Stampin' Up! products, I would love to have you visit my Stampin' Up! online shop! Just click on the shop button below if you wish!

Cheers & Happy Stamping!
