New Samples to Share

Hi there!  Here are a couple samples I wanted to share with you.  The first one is a fun birthday card for a little girl who wanted a "star" birthday!  The second one is a birthday card that could be used for a man or a woman and uses the new Well Worn DSP and the Delightful Dozen Stamp Set on page 167 of your Idea Book & Catalog.  What a great set!  It is just full of energy and positive mojo!  Definately a "must have"!
