Large Font Love - Fancy Friday Blog Hop

We're loving on LARGE FONTS this month on the Fancy Friday blog hop! If you're new around here you might like to know we're a group of past and present Stampin' Up! Artisans that love to bring you inspiration :)

This past weekend, at a crafty weekend away, I had heaps of time to play with the Lots of Love stamp set. It was kindly given as an all-attendee prize (amongst various other things!) - SO spoilt. Without further ado, here are a few cards I know will add a splash of colour to your day.

Design Credit for this next one goes entirely to my friend Paula Dobson. This card was part of her class on the retreat. It's so fun sometimes to just sit and make something that someone else has throughly thought through and done the cutting for. Haha. Love the letters in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder!

Global Design Project 100 Challenge



They're celebrating their 100th challenge over at The Global Design Project this week. I watch the GDP design team with great interest but never really have time to participate so you can tell things are going well if I've actually inked up some stamps just for fun! This week the deal is simply that you choose one of the design team projects and make it your own (CASE). They will send their card to the winner and the overall winner gets some goodies from the team. Such fun! Hope you participate too!
