O my! What gorgeous cards! Every one of them!! I have just recently learned of Altenew and purchased a few products that I am excited to try out. I just purchased this month’s spotlight stamp and can hardly wait to try the multì-layer stamping. If my cards come out half as lovely as what I’ve seen I’ll be happy, lol. From what little I have seen on the blogs and YouTube I have been inspired and I’m looking for to what you have in store for 2017!!
