A Special Hug For You

A Special Hug For You

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday and welcome to another dose of Heartfelt Creations inspiration.  My card today features the beautiful Sunrise Lily Collection and a twist on a gate-fold design that you can easily create with the Fleur and Regal Border & Pocket dies.  These dies are so versatile and always give that wow factor!

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!

I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
