One More!

Hello there my blog friends! So I had been waiting to post to the blog because I wanted to share a card for a change, but I just haven’t had a minute to download some photos I took this week.

It is a piece of chipboard cut from my Big Shot using the scallop square die cut and then decorated using the Kind and Caring Thoughts hostess stamp set and the butterfly from the Good Friend stamp set.
