Here's a fabulous card that I found on the internet , on u tube
designed by Mitosu Crafts - another Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
Just had to have a go with this!!
This uses the Window Box Thinlits dies and the Window Shopping stamp set.
Isn't this really clever.

Hi folks, it's that time of the month again - time for the monthly Jems Blog Hop
and the theme this time is
So happy this is in the new catalogue!
My first selection was the fabulous Delightful Daisy Suite.
Here are three cards that I have made using the Daisy Delight stamp Set,
the matching punch and the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper
Have you noticed the sentiments on these cards?
I was really impressed with the variety that are in the
Soft Sayings Card kit.
Below you can see all the sentiment stamps that you get in this kit.
I think they are fabulous!
Another firm favourite that has been carried over to the new catalogue
- the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies - have been used to mount the daisies
and one of the sentiments on, I think these are so versatile.
To co-ordinate with the selected shapes I have used the Layering Ovals,
Circles and Squares Framelits, to finish these off.
I am so pleased with the simple, but elegant look of the these three cards.
I could go on forever with my selection of the great number of items
that I am so happy to see in the new catalogue, but will save more for future posts!!
So.... moving on.....
Next on the hop is Karen's blog, which I am sure you'll love.
Or maybe you want to go back and see what great stuff Gill has posted
and look at the previous posts too.

This Wednesday, myself and a number of fellow team members from Julie's Jems,
posted just short of 1,000 thank you cards to the unsung heros of the day from hospitals,
support staff, ambulance, paramedics, emergency services, etc, who tended
to the people affected by the tragic events of last week in Manchester.
It was the brainchild of my good friend and Silver Elite twin (whom you will have
heard me refer to previously), Julie Wade. Julie investigated where these support workers
were based and organised our Team as to which hospital/organisation
we should send our "thank you" cards to.
The intention of this was to let these people know how grateful we all were
for their part in dealing with the aftermath of the Manchester incident.
I posted 36 cards in total, below are the assortment of designs
that I sent to three of the hospitals.
This morning myself and other team members received a lovely acknowledgement
from the Chief Executive from Stepping Hill Hospital, Stockport,
where some of our cards were sent to.
So kind of her to take the time to acknowledge.
