Pretend to Hug You Until You Get Here...STAMPlorations April 2018 Challenge #1: FOCUS ON THE SENTIMENTS


I'm excited to be joining with my awesome STAMPlorations teammates for the April 2018 Challenge #1: FOCUS ON THE SENTIMENTS

My card was originally intended for Valentine's Day - hence the pink/red - but with modifications to the schedule to allow Shery and her family a "Winter" break to play catch up and adjust to life with two little ones, I decided to save it for this challenge.  A simple change in colours makes the sweet image and heart-warming sentiment an 'any time someone is distance and we miss them' combination.  A timeless sentiment, indeed! 

As a reminder, we have only one challenge for you this month, with only one theme: Focus On the Sentiments. As long as you follow the theme, any type of project is welcome! We'll return to our regular programming in May...yayyyyy!

How will your inspiration for this theme take shape? Perhaps a big word or phrase die? An oversized sentiment? A sentiment stamped into little snippets to make it the focus of your design? An entire panel stamped with sentiments. Oh my...the possibilities!

Looking forward to seeing your 'sentiment sensations' in the gallery!

For more details about how to enter and prizes (gotta love the prizes!), head here

As well, Shery is offering a generous 10% off (no coupon code needed) all stamps, stencils, and dies in the store through April. Retiring products are excluded. With a discount code from your favorite designer for 20% on top, this is definitely the time to pick up items you may have on your wish list!

To receive 20% off STAMPlorations stamps, stencils and dies, I invite you to use my code: STAMPGIRLCAROLM. The code applies to regular and sale-priced products, but cannot be combined with other discount codes you have. Happy shopping!

Thank you for dropping by!

What a neat card--love the color combo & oh wow--that is such a wonderful sentiment! PS--I'm trying to put a few things on IG, but I much prefer blogging at this point.

The colored heart is beautiful, Carol, and goes so well with the sentiment and paper layers.
