Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I am looking forward to sharing a year of stamping and inspiration
with all of you, my blogging buddies! :)
I will be posting our next "Inspired by..." artist tomorrow, but in the meantime I thought I would share some cards I am sending to Jennifer McGuire's Cards for Kids card drive. Make sure to check out the wonderful work Jennifer is doing to brighten the days of some very special kiddos.
