Batty Without You

Not *exactly* a Halloween card, though the timing is fitting!

I used 2 sizes of Inverted Scalloped Circle dies from Spellbinders to cut a black […]

Ice Cream Hugs

My bestie isn’t a chocolate or cookie girl, so I can’t send her a Hershey bar or homemade chocolate chip cookies to show her I care. Her vice is ice cream, and *that* you unfortunately cannot ship 600 miles away and hope it will hold on a porch in the middle of Florida. Next best […]
