The stamp set has wonderful sayings in it that I would use for so many different situations.  From a card to just say hi to my husband/daughter/friend or to a sympathy card to let someone know I want to give them a hug right now because my heart hurts for their loss or struggles.  Here are the two cards you can make with the kit:

Cheers To You

Cheers To You

This is a fast and fun cardmaking workshop – Cheers To You – using the Central Park colors along with this fun hot air balloon! Instructions for cutting and assembling are in the kits now.  The embellishments are there too.

 

These cards have celebration sentiments on this – “Best Wishes” and “Cheers To You”.

I like the watercolor look of this “dots” paper.  How it overlaps and “mushes” into each other.
