#SpreadJoyNotGerms Blog Hop

Hey y’all!!! I am so excited to share my card for the #spreadjoynotgerms blog hop today! This hop is filled with sooo many talented card makers! You can find the full list here:

There’s also over 20 fantastic companies giving out amazing prizes throughout the hop, make sure to leave a comment on my blog and all the others for the most chances to WIN! Special thanks to Brutus Monroe πŸ˜‰

Anyways, check out this cheerful birthday card I made for one of my dearest friends, Grant. He was my dorm neighbor, college roommate, and best man in my wedding, Happy 25th, Grant!!


I created the succulent border using the Flutter background stamp from Brutus Monroe. I did some simple watercoloring using Distress Inks to add some soft, yet cheerful color. A two-toned sentiment from Take Flight finished off this card.

This is a super simple card, but that;s what I love- clean and simple. Do you have a preferred style of card making? If so, what? and if not, what styles do you enjoy creating with? Let me know in the comments for a chance to win some prizes!

Up next on the hop is Kirsty!

  1. Beautiful card. I love the bright and cheerful flowers with a happy sentiment. I like many styles of card; I’d say anything that catches my eye. TFS!


  2. This is so gorgeous!! I love the soft colors! My crafting style is in between CAS and fancy & fussy. I LOVE the CAS style and the highly layered and embellished, but both are hard to pull off. So, that’s probably why I fall in between.


  3. Your CAS card is gorgeous! I really love it and it is so bright and cheerful too! I don’t have any particular styles to my cards. I like to always change them up. I make a lot of cards for all occasions for family and friends. It is always a joy when they tell me how much they love their homemade cards. I try to create cards according to what a person really likes, this way it is even more special to them. I just love creating and making people happy. Thanks for spreading some joy today and being part of this amazing hop!


  4. Love the stamp design and color combo! Beautiful card! Thanks for spreading joy along the hop!
    I make mostly CAS cards and I love using die cuts too.


  5. I love your soft colors. Beautiful card. I don’t really have a style but seem to lean towards CAS card more often because that are quickly produced. Thanks for sharing


  6. I love clean & simple also, but your card is more than that…. It’s beautiful!! I love the colors that you used . Have a good day! πŸ™‚


  7. Beautiful card! I don’t have a style. I just sit down and create with whatever comes into my head. Although, CAS seems to allude me but I keep trying. Thank you for sharing.


  8. Holy amazing watercoloring! Those soft diffuse hues are just gorgeous. Thank you for participating in this excellent way to encourage stay-at-home!


  9. I just love your card made with the watercolor technique. I’m currently into coloring with alcohol markers. Thanks for sharing it. It gives me some inspiration. Please stay safe.


  10. Such a beautiful card! I love the design and soft colors. My style is usually clean and layered with some bling. But I enjoy seeing all kinds of styles. Thanks for a wonderful hop and the inspiration!
