Lift Your Spirits

Hi bloggers!  This post is dedicated to the Lift Your spirits die set.  As promised, you can see from the sample shown that the previous die set does mix very well with this one.  The hot air balloon in this set has been designed to fit the new smaller round treat cup for shaker cards if desired.  The die set can be easily used without it as well if shaker cards aren't your thing.  This is a lovely set to use to make a card for a friend that is feeling a bit under the weather or out of sorts.  We all love to receive those kind of cards, don't we?   Don't forget to use to "Pin it" button that has been included on each post to save those cards or dies onto your Pinterest boards for later inspiration.  Once again, I will remind you to leave your comments on this or any post during the launch for a chance at winning that die set.  The final post for the day will be up at 3pm today.  i hope you will be able to join us back here then.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue and everyone

I’m back at last, feeling better. I have lots of posts to catch up on, but thought I’d jump in here first.

What a pretty card and it has lifted my spirits. I love the clouds and the cloudy background too. I also love the font on the get well soon die.

I have to nip out soon but hope to catch up properly soon.

Love Helen xxx

Pam Hartlepool said...

Such a very pretty card. I was looking at this die set last night and it's on my list, my very long list
Elaine and Sam I'm in total agreement with you, I noticed after the last launch ended the posts dropped substantially, that's a dreadful shame and so not fair on Sue. All I can say is I'm hanging in there.
Elaine, hurry up and get your cards done, then you can do mine, I'm shockingly behind yet again. Where is all my time going.
Helen, so glad you are feeling better.
Yvonne, lovely surprise from your friend, hope you had a great Spa day. Enjoy your bonfire party. Jake has worked hard on it.
Hugs all round, the magic basket refills itself.

Hi Sue,

Breathtaking! There's something surreal about hot air balloons, they look so majestic. And this set just oozes charm and keeps on giving with the ability to use your fantastic treat cups and it's ability to blend perfectly with the previous set and I can see a set yet to come, this is a tremendous gift you have. I have to say that this and the last post are my favourites!

Hi Sue another wonderful addition to the collection. I love the idea that it can also be made into a shaker card. The card is stunning and I am loving the colours.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hi Sue,

Anyone who would receive this card would definitely have their spirits lifted. It looks so peaceful and serene with the soft, pastel colors. There is nothing that compares to floating along in a hot air balloon as I was lucky to be able to do this in New Mexico and the sky was just as blue as the sky in your card.

I'll be drifting along waiting for your next post.
