International Highlights Winners Blog Hop - January 2022


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 in the top ten of the January 2022 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 Symbols of Fortune Arrow Fold Card I shared as part of the January Hop.

Today I'm sharing a card featuring products from the New Horizons Product Suite from the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue!  I'll be the first to admit that this suite wasn't on my radar and then I saw the amazing Designer Series Paper!  Oh my gosh, it is stunning!  You definitely want to check it out!
