Stampin’ Up! Healing Hugs

I created today’s card for a challenge over at Inspire.Create.Challenges.  The challenge was to use Granny Apple Green, Pumpkin Pie and Poppy Parade on a card! I normally wouldn’t use this color combination so it was a fun challenge.

Saying Goodbye to Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets

These sheets are currently on the Low Inventory List which means they are close to selling out and once they’re gone, they’re gone!  You can order the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets here.  UPDATE:  The Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets have sold out!  (more…)
