Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. I hope you are all having a great start to your Memorial Day weekend. It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our challenge this week and she has a great sketch for us: As soon as I saw the horizontal element, I knew immediately which stamp set I would use. It's the Ronald McDonald set from the new 2014/2014 SU catalog called "Hello Love". It's full of great sentiments and, as I needed a wedding card, I decided that I would use this sketch - and the Hello Love set for my card. I really wanted... Read more →
