Welcome to the Spread Joy Not Germs Blog Hop! I'm so glad you landed here!
Every company shown on the sponsor board below is giving a great prize so be sure to comment on as many hop stops as you can to maximize your chances. More on that later :)
Personally, during this Stay at Home time in our history, I am getting bored and a little lonely. I miss running errands, I miss going out to dinner, I miss Baseball and hugging my friends and all the things I took for granted before Stay at Home happened. It's critical that we all do our part by staying home and I'm not complaining, I just crave a little normalcy during this difficult time. As important as it is for us to all stay home right now, I think it's equally important that we find ways to discover some joy in the little things to make it easier to get through this. For instance, I discovered my local Safeway store carries a few of the Baskin Robbins Ice Cream flavors, and was able to have some delivered with my grocery order! It's a little thing but boy oh boy did it bring me joy when my family discovered we had 31 Flavors in our freezer :)
We are all in this together and we WILL get through this! So if you're feeling bored and a little lonely too, I'm thrilled to have you visit my company blog today. I hope you'll have a little fun here and all along the hop as we spread a little joy! Take a break from the news, grab a cuppa something yummy and spend some time oohing and aahing at little things that can give you a big happy. :)
For those of you who are just discovering my little company, let me give you a quick intro.
CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is my baby. I released my very first designs in October of 2012. Wow, that seems like forever ago! To this day, I am still a one-woman-show from dreaming & designing each and every set to packaging each and every order. My products are all manufactured right here in the USA so when you support my tiny little business, I am in turn able to support small manufacturing businesses in the US. I am blessed to have an amazing team of card designers spread out across the globe who bring my designs to life and provide regular jaw-dropping inspiration. You'll get to meet most of them as you land on their hop stops, and I do believe they all have special savings codes for you that you'll want to grab!
Today I'm doing something I haven't done in...gosh, I can't even remember how long it's been...I'm posting a project that I created! I use my creative time and mojo to design new sets, so actually getting my ink on is a rarity for me. I prefer to leave this to the professionals! LOL!
Hold on to your inkpads, here goes nothing...
I dusted off my Catherine Pooler ink pads and had a little fun with one of the brand new stencils I'll be releasing to the CAS-ual Fridays Shop on Monday, April 19th, and the ever popular Supercalifragilistic stamp set. The challenge was to create a happy card so I chose rainbow colors and an encouraging but humorous sentiment. I hope it makes you smile :)
Next I had a little fun with another new stencil coming April 19th and a great little stamp set called Doing Great. Again I chose a couple of happy colors and an encouraging sentiment that delivers an awesome message.
