Ta Tara!!


Today I am hopping with my other teamies from Make The Day Special as a surprise thank you to our fab leader, Tara, who owns MTDS and brings all of the luscious American brands and crafting goodies to us in the UK and Europe!!  Tara works incredibly hard in running the store and delivers the best customer service that I have come across - she is also funny, creative and generous and I consider myself very lucky to have made such a great crafting friend :)

This hop was the lovely's Kate's idea as a way of the DT showing our appreciation for Tara and all things MTDS.  I am the last link on the hop so you should have arrived here via the super talented Keren Baker's blog but if not head over to the Make The Day Special blog where the hop begins.

My card is using the fun Reverse Confetti stamps and dies - Donut You Know....all, of course, available at MTDS!

I cut the donuts out of kraft card, blues and pinks and inked around the kraft base.  The 'icing' is glazed with glossy accents and I stuck on lots of sprinkles (which took a while!).  The punny sentiment is also from Reverse Confetti.

I hope that it puts a smile on Tara's face (hopefully it should have reached her in person by now).

It is nice to send a card 'just because' for a change....I must do it more often!

Thank you for stopping by and remember to call in at MTDS if you haven't visited before :)

  2. Fantastic card, Sarah! The donuts look just about ready to sink my teeth in them :D Love the colors, too!

  3. Thanks so much for being part of my great team and this fabby surprise hop. I'm quite emotional now getting to the end and reading all this nice stuff about me, I'm not good at taking complements :( Your card is even more delicious looking irl - I opened it this morning and the glazing on the donuts is just perfect - all the time with the sprinkles paid off - just awesome! Thanks too for the extra surprise inside.
