Choose Happiness for Stampin' Friends Blog Hop




Hello stampers,




Today I am joining this month's blog hop over at Stampin' Friends, a Facebook group, as one of the guest bloggers.  I am so happy to be part of this very talented group this month!

 Whether you have just left the magnificent creations of Andrea, or you are starting here, welcome to my blog!

This month's theme is all things animal.  I have to admit, I was a bit thrown by the theme this month.  But, after some thought, I decided to pull out one of my favorite stamp sets, Choose Happiness, and see what I could do.


The little bird saved my bacon by meeting the "animal" qualification!!!

For my second project, I created a money or card gift holder for baby.  I've seen this pattern on Pinterest by several different people.  I love how easy it is to customize for any occasion!  The Zoo Animals and B.Y.O.P. set make a really cute money holder for baby!






As luck would have it, all the sets I used for my projects are retiring with the end of the current Stampin' Up! annual catalog.  I am so sad to see them leave!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you've enjoyed my projects.  Don't forget to keep leaving comments to be entered to win this month's prize package!
