Congratulations Mini Expression



Hello and welcome to the final day of the January die release blog launch!  I hope you have been enjoying it as much as I have!  There are still a few more Mini Expressions to share with you starting with the Congratulations!
Shown here, you can see how well it will work with the Just Wanted To Say die set.  The fonts all coordinate so you can easily mix and match them too.  You know what to do by now I am certain! LOL  The next blog post is at 12 noon.  I hope you can make it back by the blog then!  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue good morning. What a fabulous sample it has so much power and a brilliant one for a male. The most effective background that shows both the mini statement plus the skyline so beautifully. Such a shame its the final day but WOW what a start. Have a great day xx

BridgetCG said...

Morning Sue, wow can't believe how fast the days have gone by. Your card is absolutely amazing, love the background and hope we will get to see a video of how you did it. The new mini congratulations works so well with the cityscape and the other mini sentiment. Have a good day everyone and good luck. Bx

Can't believe it is the last day, they say time passes quickly when you are enjoying yourself.
I certainly have been enjoying these past days, I think this is possibly your best release ever!!
Today's card is fantastic, the background, the skyline and both of the mini sentiments. I need a congratulations die.

I’m beginning to think the flower is going to be the big finish. It’ll be worth the wait.

Didn’t think I needed this until you guys all said how often you need a congratulations. The background on this is ingenious and works so well with the cityscape.
Thanks for a great launch.
Best,
Donita
