You have until midnight (GMT) on Saturday 29th February to comment and the winner will be announced, along with all the other 8th Birthday Celebration Winners, on the Uniko Blog on Sunday 8th March.

I've really enjoyed playing working with this new release.  There's so many fun designs it's hard to have a favourite.

Alphabet Outlined is such a great set to have in your collection.  Large individual letters, and numbers, make it easy to create cards for those special birthdays, or make your own sentiments.

They're easy to fussy cut too ......

Anniversaire Arts Decoratifs ....... a collection of fun sentiments in an Art Deco style font that work perfectly alongside the new Background Block - Arts Decoratifs 

I simply stamped and heat embossed the Background Block to cover a square of black cardstock ....

Makes such a cool background design, all it needed was one of those sentiments in the middle.

Another new addition with an Art Deco feel, is the brand new Background Builders - Arts Decoratifs.  A collection of Art Deco inspired, pattern building border stamps.  
One of the designs immediately made me thing of mermaid scales ........

Thank goodness for the MISTI ...... it made things so easy lining up the stamp over my Distress Ink blended background.  And look, those sentiments are the perfect partner.

Another new Background Block is the new Pinstripe II.  A great little design for creating interesting backgrounds, your own designer papers or adding decorative touches to your designs.  
Remember my card from yesterday with the pinstripe tone on tone design (if not, you can find it here) ..... well, this is how I used up the leftovers .....

I don't like throwing leftover bits into the bin so, I used punches to cut out various sized circles from the strips of stamped card.

Added in a few plain punched circles, and the odd glittery one here and there, to create this funky birthday card ..... oooh! and there's one of those fun sentiments again.

I probably shouldn't have favourites but, I think the new Happy Days stamp set is one ......

I do like silhouette stamps, and you can never have too many foliage designs so, this one is perfect for me.
Stamped in pretty rainbow colours, it's definitely a happy card

Another beautiful set is the Spring Botanicals - Tulips

Stamped onto watercolour card, heat embossed in white and coloured with ZIG Markers .... easy!

Last but not least, there's a brand new set of Designer Dies ....... Kindness Blooms
This fab little set co-ordinates perfectly with the previously released stamp set with the same name.  If you already have the stamp set, just think of all the new possibilities!

If you're on the Blog Hop then your next stop will be Rahmat (you'll find the link below)

Linda (that's me)

Cheerio until next time .......
