Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway + Video!

I am so happy to invite you to celebrate Altenew’s 6th Anniversary hop with us and the celebrations are continuing!  We are hopping along and you should have arrived here from LAURA’s brilliant blog!

I decided it was time for a little Hope today and I have used some bright cheerful colours to cheer us all and instead of making just one card which was my original plan I ended up making 3!
