Karolyn - Happy Birthday

 

I was blessed with the challenge of creating a project using the new stamp Happy Birthday – an amazing stamp set FULL of birthday greetings and sentiments!  No stamp collection should be without this baby!  My project also features a couple of other new products that will be released on February 1st.  The Stitched Tag Die will also be a staple in your collection.  I find myself reaching for it often!!  The other new product featured here is the Flowers Dies.  I’ve listed the other products used below.

 

That’s it for me today, friends!!  As always, I so appreciate your popping in to visit today.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!  Have a great day!
