Women's Day Hop - 2020

Hello friends,

Welcome to our women's day celebration hop - 2020. First of all, I'm wishing all the wonderful women out here a HAPPY WOMEN'S DAY. 

This is our second year doing International Women's day hop. This could not be successful without the co-ordination of our 10 crafty friends and the generous sponsors.

We have surprise sponsors too,

My card for the hop

No matter how far the problems in your life, pushing you down, Be sure to rise up like a dawn.
Though many might find themselves alone in their misery the truth is they are not alone, everyone has struggles. We all have our ups and downs, but it is how we react to them that truly matters. No matter what, giving up on lifelong dreams and aspirations because of few bumps in the road should never be an option. Never ever give up, Rise up like a break of dawn.

This is the message I want to convey through my card, so without further ado, let's have a look at my creation.

When life gives you problems, put your hair up in the bun, deal with it. 😀 Don't ever let the fear in, be strong, be unique and be cool. Most importantly always be yourself.

Edited: I also have a video tutorial for this card, hope you will be stopping by. I’m giving away $15 gift certificate to Honey Bee Stamp to one lucky commenter on this video. I would really appreciate if you spare some time to watch my video, and subscribe to my channel if you have not already. 

Hope you all liked my take on the theme and are inspired to play along with us via linky party. We also have few sponsors joining us as guest designers to inspire you all. For more details about the hop, visit our main blog Women be-you-tifully You.

  71. After quite a while with extraordinary style, sparkle, sparkle, distraught structure, print and example blends, individuals are moving towards normal congruity. The firsts from the Mother Nature, normal surfaces and sparkling, the crisscross, appeal us. Presently, individuals need to go for perseverance and nature of a texture, the extravagance, and the colorful plans.
