Demo Training Blog Hop - February 2024

Today I'm hopping with other Demonstrators around the world sharing Thank You cards.  I had fun making my customer thank you cards for February using the new Flowering Zinnia Suite that will be released as an Online Exclusive in March.  This Designer Series Paper is stunning!  I hope my customers will like them!                                                                      

It was so much fun making this card.  I love to colour so the zinnia image is perfect for that.  The embossed background sets them off perfectly!  I'm excited that this is the suite that will be featured for the Your Creativity Awaits Kit in March.  Get the details below!
