6 x 6 One Sheet Wonder – Pansy Petals

Pansy Patch Quick and Easy Card

I love pansies....the vibrant colors, soft petals...they are beautiful to use in landscaping....unless you have rogue bunnies in your yard!  A few years ago I bought about 80 pansy plants at a local high school fundraiser to fill a rather large flower bed in front of my house.  I planted them one afternoon.  They looked… Continue reading Pansy Patch Quick and Easy Card

It’s easy to overlook stamp sets in the Annual Catalog....especially when a smaller Mini Catalog come out a month of two after the Annual Catalog launch with even more fun stamp sets to play with and if it's a set that carried over from a previous year, sometimes they don't get a second look.
