Thank You Friend!

I just LOVE being part of the Stampendous Design Team and being given the opportunity to share my creations with all of you. So, again, THANK YOU! from the bottom of my heart for your support.

While the front of this card does not specifically say Thank You, any beautiful card with a heartfelt, hand-written message inside will mean the world to the person receiving it!

We should be thanking you and all the other Stampendous team members for all you do for us. I look for the Stampendous Wordpress email the first thing when I turn on my iPad. I discovered the blog about 3.5 years ago when I started making cards again. I love Stampendous and all the great products.

Your cards are always beautiful. Thank you

fo doing what you do!

Hi, Louise! What a beautifully stenciled creation, with each flower so perfectly colored and shaded, and cleanly applied embossing paste. Your lovely sentiment framed in black brings out the softness and glory of each flower! Wonderful creation. I am your newest google follower! hugs, de {Creative Smiles}
