Hello there! I've had a busy weekend sewing and crafting.

These stamps are exactly what I was looking for on my cards and I printed several of them for today's sketch:
This card was my best for today, but here's my first two cards using the sketch:
Thanks, Doodle Pantry! Hope ya'll enjoy the rest of your day.
