H is for Hooray!

H is for Hip-hip-hooray, also!
Hip-hip-hooray for each of you that are going to the SU! convention next week.
They're gearing up to give us an unforgettable time and I can't wait!

This card puts the sweet Storybook friends stamp set in the spotlight along with the
Typeset Alphabet Die.

It makes me smile to be able to die cut letters - so crisp and clean.
I just enjoy fonts of any type, actually. I love to decorate with them too!

And what about dressing up a lunch bag - just a regular paper sack transformed with a little DSP, ribbon and a button. I adhered the DSP to the top of the envelope and then ran it through the Big Shot using the largest Labels Collection Die. Perhaps a little over the top for every day, but sure would be sweet for a special lunch or even a gift bag.

How many of you remember doing cursive and making your "Z's" this way. Z's and Q's were my very favorite to practice with their swirly-dos! Do kiddos even do that anymore what with all their txt msgs idk cd b! 

And that's where card making and card giving come in again - something special to receive in the mail, to enjoy today, tuck away and enjoy again another day, perhaps years down the road.
Save America - send a card!
And here's how you cut the lunch bag with the Top Note Die. This pic was after the fact so you can adhere your DSP in place first and then cut it. Tip: There's a front and back to lunch bags so adhere your DSP to the side without the seam going down the center - how did I get that smart?  Hmmm..... smile.   I also use a small piece of removable tape to hold my dies in place.
