Happy Hugs - Clearly Besotted

As soon as I saw the July release by Clearly Besotted which I think is one of their best,  I knew I had to have the Happy Hugs stamp set.  It is soooo cute and I particularly love the bears as will my niece who is also fond of bears!!

 I decided to make a shaker card and cut the scalloped hole using the Mama Elephant Columbus Circle die.  I filled it with the Gold Dust Shaker Mix from Lucy's Cards and coloured the sun on the inside using some Copic markers.

I have recently decorated and re-arranged my craft room so that my desk is now in front of the window.  As a fan of Debbie Hughes and also her amazing card photography, I wanted to use natural light to take my photos rather than the laborious task of setting up lights etc. hence moving the location of my desk.  But it proves difficult when the day is gloomy and overcast.  I'll keep trying though to get those nice, bright photos that Debbie takes!

I also made a bookmark using the same set
