Hello, my sweet friends! I hope the weather has been as beautiful in your part of the world as it has been in mine!!!

May JDS Mid-Month Inspiration and Farewell

Sad news today… this is my final post for Jan’s Digi Stamps. After 1.5 wonderful years on the DT, I find myself needing to step down from the team.

Mid Month Inspiration with JDS

Today’s card for the JDS mid-challenge inspiration post was super easy to create using a precolored image and sentiment from Jan’s Digi Stamps, from her set called Floral Flourish.
