As Happy As Happy Gets & Sale Ending Soon

Today's share by designer NanaConnie features the hummingbird image from the "My Life is Blessed" set. Whenever I see a hummingbird in my yard, it feels like an extra special blessing. Everywhere I look in this world, I see evidence of God's hand, but hummingbirds, in their fragile, delicate beauty, remind me extra much of His grace in my life, and that makes me happy. Though perhaps not as majestic as the real thing, NanaConnie colored this paper "hummer" beautifully, accenting it with this delicate frame and sweet jewels. The "Hope your day is as happy as happy gets," sentiment that she used is so sweet, and very encouraging, don't you think? Thanks for sharing this with us, NanaConnie, and bringing a little happiness to the day!

Before I go, just a friendly reminder that tomorrow (28 February) is the last day of our Hearts/Love/Valentine sets sale. Sets throughout the shop -- not just the Valentine's Day sets -- that fit into this category are currently being offered at 50% off. Don't miss out! :-)

Irish Blessing

Designer Paula Bloom is crafting for Spring. Here is a fresh and lovely card that she made to share using the "Irish Blessings" set. She framed the "blessing" beautifully, spongeing it with a little bit of purple ink to make it stand out. The image, with the leaves of the shamrocks all glittered up, makes a sweet accent for the sentiment, as does that gorgeous lace! As I said, so fresh and lovely, just like Spring! :-)

Last Week to Join February Challenge

Hello, friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

This week is the last to join in the February Digi of the Month Challenge. Remember, your entries must be uploaded by this Sunday at 11:55 pm Pacific Time in order to get next month's digi for free. Today I wanted to share a couple of cards with you, made by our design team, to give you that one last creative boost that you might need to get your project made for this month's challenge.

First up is this bright and cheery creation by Jerusha Borden. The patterns of her papers along with the interesting shape of the image piece really make this so fun! And did you see the little turtle button she added to the bow? So adorable, and the perfect accent!

Next we have this sparkling work of art by Kren Kurts. The dry embossing makes a great frame for this image, which she has glittered up to make all the more festive. The way she crafted the sentiment piece just shouts, "Fun!"

Two fabulous cards, and wonderful inspiration to start off our crafty week! :-)
