Dotty Angles Hello Card

By | Cards, Thinking of You Cards | One Comment

When I first flipped through my new Stampin’ Up! catalog, one of the first stamp sets that caught my eye was the Dotty Angles stamp set on page 98. I love it! Those dots were just calling my name! So of course I had to get it and ink it up right away.

Do you really need a reason to send a handmade card?

By | Cards, Product Tips, Thinking of You Cards | One Comment

Of course not! A card sent “just because” is even more exciting to receive because it’s totally unexpected!
