SSS Good Vibes Release Blog Hop!

Hey guys!

Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp, Good Vibes release blog hop. I'm so happy you're here!

Look closely at the bottom portion of the graphic above. Simon is giving away a free gift with EVERY purchase through June 24th, 11:59pm EDT! Just use the code: PUFFY at checkout. So fun!

I'm so excited to share my cards with you but first, you should know that Simon is also giving away a $25 gift card at each stop along the 2-day hop! They'll choose the winners from the comment sections and announce them on their blog on Wednesday, June 27th. 

If you've been following along the hop, you should've arrived from my wonderful, talented friend, Jenn Shurkus and her blog, Creative Chick. If you'd like to start at the beginning of today's hop, it's here at Simon's blog. If you missed yesterday's hop, you can click here to start at the very beginning.

I was sent some fabulous products and I had so much fun playing with them! I've made 6 cards for you, so let's get started. I should warn you though, you're about to see lots of pink. But hey, it's summer so ya can't blame me. Lol! 

(All products used are listed below in the affiliate links, at no cost extra to you.)


I love this Hibiscus Frame die! I actually didn't use the frame portion but instead, took each petal of the flower, colored them with Zig Markers and Copics, then adhered them back into the hibiscus shape. I love how it turned out! And the sentiment? It's from the Vacation Time stamp set. There are so many fun sentiments in that set!


This beauty is the Debra die and I love it. So intricate. Just think of all the different ways you could use it! I decided to keep mine white and adhere it with foam tape to a colorful, tropical background, created with Distress Inks. And that is another sentiment from the Vacation Time set.


Another fab sentiment from the Vacation Time set. I love how large and bold some of them are! The flowers are from a coloring book that was given to me by a crafty friend. I was practicing my no-line coloring and wanted to use the page on a card. I thought the flowers ended up looking tropical and would go perfect with that sentiment.

Are ya sick of pink yet? I hope not, 'cause I got one more.
I used the smaller flowers in the, Strangeness stamp set and popped them up against a pretty, peachy background. This time I used Distress Oxide Inks.

Okay, that's it for pink. Whew - sorry! What can I say? I was in a summery, tropical mood with all the fun vacation-themed products.

Next up are some cuties on a beach!
Can ya stand it?! Look at that mermaid kitty! Ack! So cute! And the dog sittin' in his flamingo floatie is pretty darn adorable too, don't ya think? This set is called, Summer Cuddly Critters. I colored them with Copics and the background was done with Distress Inks. And yes, that sentiment is another one from the Vacation Time set.

For my last card, I used the larger image from the, Strangeness set.
I used Copic Markers and the sentiment is from the, Miss You Block die. I only used the letters.

That's it for my stop - I hope I've inspired you. Thanks so much for stopping by! Next up on the hop is the fabulous and talented, Lisa Addesa!

Hugs, ♥

Mostly all the escorts are available online for booking. You can select and book them as per you convenience and availability. Either you can go to meet the Karachi Escorts in 5 star hotels or the girl with reach out to your place. Since Pakkistan is a metro city it has urbanized way ahead of other small cities in Pakistan.Escorts in Karachi mainly focused about the tourist but that does not imply they do not deal with local people.
