International Highlights Winners Blog Hop


I’m so excited to be featured in the the International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci. I was selected to participate in this hop by finishing #1 in the September 2021 International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my card! The theme for the International Blog Highlights is "Thank You"!  You can check out my Peaceful Cabin Card I shared as part of the September Hop that earned me the #1 spot!  

Today I'm sharing a card featuring the Eden's Garden Product Collection - a sneak peek from the upcoming January to June Mini Catalogue.  You'll be able to order this collection starting on November 2nd and it is STUNNING!  The Bundle will be available in the Mini Catalogue, but the Designer Series Paper, Cotton Paper and Garden Gems are exclusive to the pre-release starting November 2nd!
