Sweetest little patterns


February. We are in the swing of the new year and beginning to look to spring coming soon. And Valentine’s Day is the start of the cuteness of spring. For this month, I used a non-traditional set to make this sweet scene.

Playful patterns is a fantastic set to have in your collection. It is a great set for subtle backgrounds and easy repetitive designs. I used flamingo and smoke slate to make the images. Super easy to do!

Who else has pattern play? I wanna see what you use it on! Post a pic and tag me! @hanniejoyandco on Instagram so I can see! Hope you have a special month with those love. And since we can’t BE with all our loved ones this year, make a special valentine and pop it in the mail. This is my challenge to you. Brighten someone’s day! LONG LIVE SNAIL MAIL!

Head over to see what Anne and Cheryl have for you today!



Today is World Card Making Day!  Which is a fabulous day!  Everyone should make a card.  Do it.  Today.  It’s therapeutic.  If you cannot make a card, at least send a card.  Take back the snail mail from ads and circulars. Communicate via pen and paper.  Support a post man (disclaimer:  my father-in-law is a retired postman, however no money exchanged hands in this endorsement… 🙂 )

Anyway, here is what I have in honor of World Card-making Day!

20160928_162352I just love this succulent stamp set!!  It’s called Live, Love, Grow.  It’s just the perfect set for world card-making day.  Cause it’s FAST.  You can make a bunch and get them sent out right quick!


I am in love with the copper thread.  This is a new color addition to the thread line this year and it is just fabulous.  Perfect for fall.

And, you just have to see how I decorated the envelopes.  I found these perfect stamps, (SHHHHH, they aren’t from Stampin’ Up! but they were so cute I could NOT resist.)


In honor of the occasion, I’m going to do a little prize give-away.  Comment with the first name of someone you will send a card to today and I will put your name into a drawing for a pack of cards (this succulent card included).  You must comment by Sunday Night (Oct 2) to be considered for the giveaway.  I will contact the winner on Monday!

And, Of course SU! could not let this day go by with out some fanfare.  Check out their specials in honor of WCMD:  wcmd_flyer_demo_oct0116_us
