I like the simplicity of some of the cards on your blogs. Sometimes less is more when sharing a Heartfelt message. I admire the creative minds on your team and learning new ways to inter-mix the sets I have. The papers are always a delight to use.

The cards are beautiful. I have not looked at any emails for a while because my husband has been in the hospital. Now that he is home , I am hoping to get back to stamping. Thanks for your inspiration.
