Kelly's Stampin Friends Birthday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome! You may have just arrived from the lovely Tina Gillespie's blog and her fabulous projects as part of Kelly's Stamping Friend's Birthday Blog Hop. But if not you can check them out by clicking on her name and the list of all the first 20 Participants are at the bottom of this post and I'm sure you'll find lots of inspiration along the way from this very talented group. The purpose of the Hop is to celebrate Kelly Kent's birthday today - such a great reason to celebrate this lovely lady who I know from being team mates at Just Add Ink together.

For my card, I have a sneak peek for you of a new stamp set that will be available in the new Stampin Catalogue available to order from June 1. It's a pretty Photopolymer stamp set and punch bundle and was designed by Mary Fish so is perfect for CAS images.
I've combined the stamped and punched images with some retiring papers and then layered some different textures together.

Thanks for stopping by today and now you're heading off to say hello to the lovely Birthday girl, Kelly Kent herself and the fabulous projects that I know you will love. Enjoy!
