I can’t believe how talented the ladies are. I know I’m probably different then a lot of people, but I’m a little goody. Well maybe a lot. I love bright and bold colors. I don’t care for the plain cards, but that’s just my opinion, everyone is different. I think that’s why I love Heartfelt Creations because Emma can get that way. I just Love all of you and your products. Thank you team, your all great. ❤️
