#spreadjoynotgerms Blog Hop


I'm excited to participate in the #spreadjoynotgerms- spreading a whole lot of joy to those that are doing their part, staying home and NOT spreading germs! If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from Jeanette Comerford's blog! If you get lost, the complete list order can be found on Catherine Pooler Design's blog or the Hedgehog Hollow's blog.

I created this cheeky lil' number to send to a friend who loves to garden. We've both been talking about getting outside to work on our gardens as soon as the weather warms up a bit more. I'm featuring Catherine Pooler supplies on my card today. I started with a card base made from Ultra Smooth White Cardstock, inking it up in Aquatini Ink with the Split Chevron Stencil. I then created a focal panel with the Spiral Notebook Border Die in White Cardstock blocked with black cardstock.


Then the bunch of carrots were created with the whimsical Veggies Please Stamp Set stamped in Orange Peel and Lime Rickey Inks. To add some character (and joy!) I stamped a smile from the Build a Snowman Stamp Set. I finished with a sentiment from Veggies Please stamped in Midnight Ink and a few staples to adhere the panel to the card base.


I am giving away a $20 gift certificate, compliments of the fantastic owner, at the Catherine Pooler Designs Shop! All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know if you've sent any handmade greetings during this pandemic to cheer someone up! Although you do not have to comment on all the blogs to be entered, the more blogs you comment on, the more chances you will have to win! The deadline to enter to win the prize here on my blog and the other prizes along this hop is April 24th. Winners will be announced on Monday, April 27 on Catherine and Alexandra's blogs.

In addition to the gift certificate I'm giving away on my blog, here is the amazing list of Sponsors! Thank you for supporting this crafty community and spreading joy, not germs!

  52. Your card is adorable. I love the spiral notebook paper look. I have sent a card during this time, but unfortunately it was a sympathy card. A relatives aunt (96) passed away, luckily NOT from covid-19. It broke my heart that they are having to wait until this mess is over to have a gathering for her. But we will ALL get through this and come out stronger. Thanks and stay safe.

  93. I had not heard of Catherine Pooler until recently. I have bought four stamp pads and am finding them to be excellent. I have made and sent TONS of cards during this pandemic. I sent 20+ cards to nurses in one day! I have also been sending "Corona Kits" to the grandkids of friends of mine which include a coloring sheet, sticker sheets, fruit leather, and a box of snack cereal. Of course, I handmade cards to go along with each kit. Thanks for your inspiration!
