Watercolor Winter ~

Monday, November 17, 2014

Stampin' up has a gorgeous Christmas card set this year, and a few of my crafty gal pals and I got together Friday evening to start assembling them.  Each one has something that was watercolored on them, which takes some time but is well worth it.  They appear here in the order of my favorite at the top.


If you don't have a Stampin' Up consultant, I've got a good one here!

Have a Happy Monday!
