International Highlights Winners Blog Hop - January 2023

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 in the January 2023 International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my Dainty Delights Card.

Today I'm sharing a card featuring the Stampin' Up! Love For You Bundle.  I love bundles that includes large words that can be stamped or cut out.  I've used the words to stamp a background on Kraft Paper.  So pretty with Sweet Sorbet!
