Catherine Pooler Hop with Ellen Hutson!


 I've made two really fun, out-of-the-box, cards with one of the newest Catherine Pooler Design sets:  Sweet Life! [yes there are dies, too]  It's full of sweet little fruity images... but guess what I saw?
 

Here are the CP inks I've used for my smiles:
Party Dress, Tutti Fruitti, Limoncello, Tiki Torch, 
Sweet Sixteen, and Black Jack.
I even made a little smile from the new 
EBE Essential Circles dies by Heather, and cut my card panel with Heather's Essentials Rectangles


We all need to share happy, worry free messages
these days, right?  
Here's another … btw, I've combined a few words of my own with the sentiments -
[those first three lines are my own] are from
CP Sweet Life, with our EBE High Five
My slice of lime was created by stamping with Lime Ricky ink near the rind, and clear embossing ink on the rest,
 it was then clear heat embossed. 
All that with one little section stamp in the set!
These gorgeous papers are from the
CP Fresh n Fruity patterned paper collection, and those fun sequins are part of their Boston [plenty of Irish there!] pack!
It's time to Hop along now … but before you go...
