Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - March 2023 Customer Thank You

I'm excited to be training with Bruno and Kylie again this year and participating in our monthly Blog Hop with amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world. The purpose of the group is for the group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that are part of the share ideas and to learn from each help us in our Stampin' Up! Business. Our theme for our blog hop each month is "Thank You".

I've used the Stampin' Up! Ginkgo Branch Bundle for my cards - I love gingko leaves - did you notice the one on my blog header?  Isn't this a pretty card!  I made the first one in Evening Evergreen and Soft Seafoam and then decided to shake it up a little with Night of Navy and Balmy Blue.  Which do you like best?

I always love dies that give a large detailed die cut that can be used as the focal point for a project.  

Lots of card ready to send out to thank customers for orders in March!  Will one of these beauties be arriving in your mailbox?
