True Love Approaching Perfection Happy Birthday Card, Ink Stamp Share New Year's Eve Blog Hop 2020

 Good Afternoon Everyone,

It's New Years Eve, and what a different kind of New Year's Eve we will be having today - we usually have a small gathering at a friends house, but it's going to be a quite one this year!! But, it is what it is - you never know I may be able to sneak in some extra crafting hours!!

Today I'm taking part in the Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop where myself and some amazingly talented crafters are showcasing some brand new goodies that are coming out on 5th January. I chose to use the True Love DSP and the sentiment is from a FREE Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set.


Highland Heather Cardstock

1pc - 8 1/4" x 5 7/8", scored at 4 1/8"

Whisper White Cardstock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - scrap for the sentiment

Old Olive Cardstock

1pc - scrap for the sentiment

Gorgeous Grape Cardstock

1pc - 3" x 5 7/8"

True Love DSP

1pc - 3 5/8" x 5 3/8"

Fold your Highland Heather cardstock along the score line to create your card base, adding the piece of whisper white to the inside. place the strip of Gorgeous grape along the centre of the card front.

Using Highland Heather and Old Olive Blends, colour in the True Love DSP, then add to the card front.

Run two Ovals from the Stitched Shapes Die through your Cut & Emboss Machine, a larger one in old olive and a small one in whisper white.

Stamp the sentiment from Approaching Perfection Stamp Set ( This is FREE with a £45 purchase during Sale-aBration) in Gorgeous Grape ink into the centre of the Whisper White Oval. Layer this onto the Old Olive Oval and add to the centre of the card front with dimensionals.

  6. Let's not limit this amber-gold elixir to just salad dressing. People around the world have been using apple cider vinegar for various medicinal uses. But lately it is often used for an apple cider vinegar detox. This idea may now be a trend today, but this drink goes centuries back when detoxification properties of this concoction were advertised back in 400 B.C. Several ACV followers claim endless benefits that come with this detox, including boosting the digestive system, promoting a healthy metabolism, smoothing skin, balancing the body's pH levels, and removing toxins, which in our case is THC. When preparing an apple cider vinegar detox, keep the ratios simple. Mix one cup of water with half a cup of ACV to dilute it down, making it easier to drink. This homemade option is best for those who are apprehensive about using commercially made detox drinks, and it is known to bring more benefits than just detoxing your system. Word of caution: Do not go around putting a straw directly in a bottle of apple cider vinegar. We know we have done enough of pee, urine, etc., and you might be cringing right now. But, we do know how important it can be for you to come out innocent in a drug test. These options can help you big time in clearing it. Steel sensor for temperature sensing and digital temperature controller maintains a perfect temperature of the sample. A thermal insulating blanket keeps the temperature stable for four hours.
