December Birthdays Blog Hop

Hi Crafters!  

Tonight I'm hopping along with the December Birthdays Blog Hop Group, specifically designed to celebrate all those poor souls who get pushed to the weigh-side in sight of Christmas! You may have come along from my good friend, Jenny Hall's blog & doesn't she just make the most beautiful projects! Please continue to hop all the way around the crew as we all have amazing projects for you. 

I have a few team members who have December birthdays, so I thought I'd jump in & hey, it's nice to do something other than Christmas cards hehe!

I have been playing with the gorgeous Color Me Happy Bundle & I swear they made this card kit just for me! It's all my fave colours! Do you love it, too? I'm giving one away this month in my customer draw, see below for more info!

Now, I just have to say how terribly impressed I am with myself for being able to colour in these lanterns & how well they turned out. I have VERY little experience with water colouring or adult colouring books etc so I really am a novice, but how amazing do the Blends make this look! They are so easy to use!

I have used Light Daffodil Delight, Light & Dark Pumpkin Pie for the round lanterns & Light & Dark Pool Party plus the Color Lifter for the skinny lanterns. You can get the Blends Collection or purchase them separately or as colour combos. If you want the whole collection & you're not already a demo, then the cheapest way to get them is in the kit for $169 & you'll still have some room left over to spend on some other product! Join my team today!

I have made up these cards following the easy peasy full colour instructions in the kit. All the bits are ready to use & even these pop out lanterns are ready to go! So fun to put together! I have already given one of these to my friend, Emma & have another couple to give out to December-baby team members this month! And these cards have gorgeous Pool Party envelopes with gold trim! Divine!

I hope you enjoyed my card & that you can hop around the rest of the crew & leave some blog love along your way... everyone loves a nice comment! Next up is the beautiful Kelly Kent, you won't wan to miss her project! xx
