Whoo hoo I’m back participating in this wonderful challenge blog again this week. I love challenges as they encourage you to work with stamp sets you may not have used for a while and sometimes they even get you out of your comfort zone.

Hope that makes sense? Whisper White: 3 3/4″ x 5″ scrap for flowers and jar Crushed Curry: 4″ x 5 1/4″ Tangerine Tango: 5… Read more »
