This month we have  30 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing items they created using the Happy Times collection.   This hop is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Wahoo!! 

Here we go!

Today, I created 2 cards that I will be teaching at an upcoming card class at the end of May.  

These cards use the EXCLUSIVE  Happy Times paper pack, stamp set & the stamp set - M1138 Congrats .  For the rest of my card class, I will also be using the stamp set C1605 Happy To Be Friends.  J.

If you have already seen these Happy Times papers in person, you'll notice that both cards use the SAME papers, they are just switched to the opposite side of the paper!! J  I LOVE double sided papers...the only change is that there are 2 different zip strips used on these cards. 

Here is a close up of the first card.  The "happy" strip IS a Zip strip that comes in this paper pack!!  I LOVE the "extra" zip strips that are included in each of CTMH papers.  

Zip Strips are the 1/2" strip at the top of each B&T paper.  There is a beautiful border design on the one side, and the other side gives the information of what paper collection this paper is from, and it also lists the colors used in this paper collection - VERY helpful!! J 

Here is the 2nd card - I ADORE the $2.95 Congrats stamp set, and had to use it  on this card! 

The gold sequins topped by the Pink Enamel gems were inspired by fellow consultant Michelle Snyder.  I LOVE the look of these embellishments together! 

I hope you enjoyed these cards J , and now it's time to "Hop" on over to Kirsten's  Blog to see her amazing work!
