Card Gathering

We got a group of 9 creative gals together & made 2 cards...

The first one was using the stampset from Mistletoe `Workshop on the Go`.

All the Best

The second card there were 3 options of the same card ... each one used a different stamp and background card stock. Again it was great to see everyone create their own take on the cards!
