  • Donna Neal October 7, 2017, 2:18 pm

    Catherine – you’ve done it again! The card and the tags – so beautiful!

  • Judy October 7, 2017, 3:42 pm

    I love all thes cards and the others you did the past few days. I know in my heart I will get this kit but since Mom is her until her house is fixed I have no place to craft. I really miss our little Mom & Pop craft stores that use to have crop & card making areas.

    I have not been stamping much but this collection really caught my eye. I love the images and the DT has really brought it all to colorful life.
